There is no meaning. In fact, because there is no meaning, joy is possible. Because there is no meaning, playfulness is possible. Because there is no meaning, dance is possible.
Listen to the birds—do you think there is any meaning? There is no meaning! But why should there be? Look at the tree, the flowers, the stars. Is there any meaning? But why should there be?
Children running hither and thither, so excited, do you think there is any meaning? Do you think they have found a treasure? Do you thing they have found diamonds? Nothing much, maybe just colored stones or a dead butterfly, or maybe they have collected a few old leaves, seashells on the seabeach . . . but they are so immensely blissful.
Blissfulness need not be rooted in meaningfulness. In fact, the very idea of meaning destroys bliss. Once you start looking for meaning you become a calculator, you become a mind. You lose your being. Then you will be in tremendous trouble, because everything will only make you ask again.
For example, "Why did God create the world? What is the meaning?" Even if some fool can supply you the answer . . . And there have been very foolish theologians who have been supplying all kinds of answers, because whenever there is a demand there is going to be a supply.
比如，“为何神 / 上帝创造出了这个世界？意义何在？”甚至一些白痴都可以给你答案……有些愚蠢透顶的神学家一直在给各种各样的答案，因为只要有需求，就会有供给。
When fools ask, foolosophers answer.
