You have asked a question that most humans ask ask themselves at least
once in their lives.  I read through many links (and conducted queries
with my friends) to compile the list below and I hope you find it
helpful.  Should you need any clarification before rating my answer,
please request it and I'll be happy to conduct further research.

#2  "Life has no meaning, other than what you give it."
"It's up to you."

#3 "The meaning of life is to give and receive love and work at
something you feel passionate about. Or not."

#4  "What do you want meaning for? Life is desire, not meaning!"
Charlie Chaplin

#5  "..discovering the meaning of life would be about discovering some
information, then planning and managing one’s life to live in
accordance with this information. "

Rather it is found in verbs of action."

personally, i feel us humans are always wanting to attribute a certain
significance (read meaning) to their lives.  Some turn to religion,
some turn to philosophy, some to other form of assurances.

a lot of people fail to wake up to the TRUTHs.
Truth #1: The universe couldn't care a git about us humans
Truth #2: No one owes us our continued existence
Truth #3: There is no need for a "meaning" to Life to exist (its only
our ego that makes it so important for ourselves to overrate our own

knowing #3 does not mean one has to go through life aimlessly, as a
lot of people have stated, you are here now, do something worthwhile
with your existence as your existence is likely to be transient.  Most
people opt for the simple act of continual existence, others help
other people out to continually exist, still others try to cull the
human race, etc. etc.

my point: live your life and stop worrying about things that ain't

"Ultimately, man should not ask what the meaning of his life is, but
rather must recognize that it is he who is asked. In a word, each man
is questioned by life; and he can only answer to life by answering for
his own life; to life he can only respond by being responsible."
