Samuel Benjamin Harris is an American Philosopher, Motivational Coach, Spiritual Seeker, and Peace Activist. He is a Neuroscientist by Profession and runs his podcast. He has spoken on crucial subjects such as depressions, anxiety, psychedelics, philosophy of mind, neuroscience, and meditation.

His first book The End of Faith has won fame and has been for 33 weeks on New York Times Best Seller List. He has debated with many Public figures on Religion, God, and Spirituality.

According to Sam, the meaning of life is to be human without any fear. We should be practical and know that we are not immortal here, so stop biding the rituals that have been given to us by our ancestors.

We have to be honest and kind to everyone in life. The meaning should be created by helping others. We are always living in the past and future, we don’t realize that it’s just an illusion, not a real thing, factual is the present moment, and we got to define the present moment by living it fully. We can only create meaning in our life by living in the present moment. Be helpful, kind, and compassionate to everyone you meet, and stop asking for love rather start sharing the love.

We have to be aware of our life and raise our consciousness level. Once you are conscious about your life, you will find meaning in each moment. Being Conscious should be the goal of life.

Quotes by Samuel Benjamin Harris:

“You are not controlling the storm, and you are not lost in it. You are the storm.”

Sam Harris

“Religious moderation is the product of secular knowledge and scriptural ignorance.”

Sam Harris

“You can do what you decide to do — but you cannot decide what you will decide to do.”

Sam Harris

“We have a choice. We have two options as human beings. We have a choice between conversation and war. That’s it. Conversation and violence. And faith is a conversation stopper.”

Sam Harris

“What is the meaning of life? What is our purpose on earth? These are some of the great, false questions of religion. We need not answer them, for they are badly posed, but we can live our answers all the same. At a minimum, we can create the conditions for human flourishing in this life–the only life of which any of us can be certain. That means we should not terrify our children with thoughts of hell or poison them with hatred for infidels. We should not teach our sons to consider women their future property or convince our daughters that they are property even now. And we must decline to tell our children that human history began with bloody magic and will end with bloody magic in a glorious war between the righteous and the rest.”

About: According to Sam, this question is wrong or can be answered by paying conscious attention to the present moment. But it will never satisfy the questioner because living in the present moment has no explanation. 
Practicing constant Meditation will help you to discover the meaning of your life. Although there is no specific or right answer to it, it’s just that one will become aware of his thoughts and actions in the present moment. You become happy in the present moment.
About: According to Sam, what is the meaning of life is not a sensible question. It will never lead you to a fulfilling answer. Either doing anything in life with the full attention will fulfill your life.
