Defining Meaning Meaning can be defined or conceptualized in cognitive as well as experiential forms. Having a sense that one’s life has meaning involves the conviction that one is fulfilling a unique role and purpose in a life that is a gift—a life that comes with a responsibility to live to one’s full potential as a human being and, in so doing, being able to achieve a sense of peace, contentment, or even transcendence through connectedness with something greater than one’s self. Meaning is the experience of feeling fully alive, of being in love with “being”; the experience of “connectedness, love, care, and indebtedness” to one’s life, one’s self, one’s loved ones, and to the past, present, and future; and connection to the authentic self (the “who” and not the” what” I am) to others, to the transcendent, to meaningful moments.
