The meaning of life is whatever illusion has managed to gain a hold of your cognitive senses. In fact the term should be the 'meanings of life'. Religious illusions are very resilient to reason, which is why they quickly and easily gain a hold of most people's brain power.
Only human cognition can come up with such a question about the meaning of life and expect an answer. Answers come in the form of memes, which replicate themselves or die in a Darwinian 'only the strongest survive' abstract environment. None of the memes have any association with reality, because reality is inaccessible to us. We human have only our sensory perceptions and neural interpretations.

the meaning of life is to question lifes meaning despite the fact that its true meaning cannot possibly by revealed while one is living - therefore its meaning is and always will be unknown as long as we continue to live and possibly beyond
how can anyone know what the meaning of life truly consist of until one can observe it from an outside point of view?
for that possibility to occur - one must be somewhere else

Each person has needs/desires which are triggered by events. The meaning of life is to re-evaluate and find ways to address these needs.

Desires can be physical, psychological and social. Many needs are short-term but we should also find long term ones.
Everyone is trying to find the meaning of life, but it's always been there: Just not always as clear!
