If you want to read contemporary philosophical classics on the meaning of life, a very good source is the book The Meaning of Life: A Reader, edited by E. D. Klemke and Steven M. Cahn (2008). It has a great collection of writing by Leo Tolstoy, David F. Swenson, Louis P. Pojman, Emil L. Fackenheim, Philip L. Quinn, Arthur Schopenhauer, Bertrand Russell, Moritz Schlick, Albert Camus, Kurt Baier, Paul Edwards, Richard Taylor, Thomas Nagel, Joel Feinberg, A. J. Ayer, Kai Nielsen, John Wisdom, Robert Nozick, Susan Wolf, John Kekes and the editors themselves.


Another very good source is the book Exploring the Meaning of Life: An Anthology and Guide, edited by Joshua W. Seachris (2013), but some articles in this anthology may happen to be difficult to read.

You may compare chapters of these two books with writings of a different style by Eckhart Tolle, Ken Wilber, Andrew Cohen, the Dalai Lama, Wayne W. Dyer, Thich Nhat Hanh, Deepak Chopra, Paulo Coelho, Krishna Das, Sai Baba, Philip Berg, and others.
