Many people believe that the goals we have in life are derived from and determined by a higher being. For those of us who dont believe in that, is there a need for a purpose (or series of) or a sense of meaning? An end goal, if you will. And if so, what are the unique ways to define that?

The goal (ha ha) of this discussion isnt to alienate anyone of any creed, but to encounter a variety of definitions of the meaning of life, soley for the sake of exposing ourselves to a different interpretation of the facts. Alan Watts suggested (http://www.freshminds.com/animation/alan_watts_life.html) that life is a musical thing, and were supposed to sing and dance along the way. That the concept of a goal robs you of the actual point. But maybe part of the enjoyment of life is setting a goal or feeling compelled to something. I suggest coming with an open mind and a light heart. This Raley's has a dining section above their deli. This is where you'll find us.

How to find us:Look for the sign on my laptop
