We can make life meaningful in many ways. By acting, loving, and finally suffering.
By suffering, you mean how you behave and behave in the face of various life possibilities, even if they are constrained and you are unable to realize value through action and love.
Or how to take the pain of being constrained, in all of these ways, we can still deliver value.
Activities are not the only things that can make life meaningful.
Not only as an acting being, but also as a loving one, by loving and devoting beautiful things, great things, and good things, we can meet the various needs of our lives.
There is no need to explain the fact that beauty experiences can make life meaningful.
Occupational work is not the only place where activities can make your life meaningful. Is it true that only professional work makes life meaningful?
The work of many people can be mechanical as well as pointless.
They lament and complain about the pointlessness of their labor. No wonder.
Only in the leisure time of an insignificant amount, the lives of these people are formed into meaningful things and filled with individual and human meanings.
Those who have abundant leisure have a great opportunity to make their lives meaningful.
The first thing that can be considered is the answer given in the activity.
It is to respond by doing something.
By doing something and creating something,
we make the questions that life poses meaningful.
It is wrong from the beginning that we ask, “Is it meaningful to live?” We should not ask what it means to live. It’s because life asks and raises our questions.
We are being questioned.
We must answer the questions that life always asks, the questions of life. It is the existence that must answer. Living itself is nothing but a question.
We all live to answer. And that is to take responsibility for being alive.
Asking if it makes sense to live is wrong from the beginning.
It is because life asks us questions and raises questions.
In the first place, suffering and death make life meaningful.
Living is always a task assigned.
lyric: Johnny Mercer music: Henry Mancini
Moon River, wider than a mile
I’m crossin’ you in style some day
Old dream maker, you heart breaker
Wherever your goin’, I’m goin’ your way
Two drifters, off to see the world
There’s such a lot of world to see
We’re after the same rainbow’s end
Waitin’ round the bend, My huckleberry friend,
Moon River and me

music Erroll Garner words Johnny Burke
Look at me,
I’m as helpless as a kitten up a tree;
And I feel like I’m clingin’ to a cloud
I can’t understand
I get misty, just holding your hand
Walk my way
And a thousand violins begin to play
Or it might be the sound of your hello
That music I hear
I get misty, the moment you’re near
Can’t you see that you’re leading me on?
And it’s just what I want you to do
Don’t you notice how hopelessly I’m lost
That’s why I’m following you
On my own
Would I wander through this wonderland alone
Never knowing my right foot from my left
My hat from my glove
I’m too misty, and too much in love
And too much in love

What a music school can do is limited in time and ability. It’s best not to try everything in your twenties. It is not uncommon for a person who was unable to enter a music school at the age of 18 to enter a music school when he or she was in his 40s or 50s after finishing childcare and parental care.
