The search for meaning is a quest for power we are not designed to bear, an obstacle to the grace of insignificance. What could prepare us for the breathe of God (Spirit) that hums all life into being, except we be emptied of our pretensions of significance? Divine perspective most of all relativizes our importance. We are each very small creatures. Very little is contingent on us. Knowing our smallness puts us in touch with the essential lightness of created things. Splendid irrelevance.
