What do you think is the purpose of life ?

Well, Google isn't much of a help here; I am specifically asking YOU guys: You, as you once were (devout) believers in Islam, and the comfort blanket which it accompanies. All the tiny details of your life, all how you had to think was all figured out by Mo (or better said: + the many 'ulema) and you used to accept it.
So in particular " Wa maa khalaqtul jinne wal inse illa li ya'budoon" part.
I have a hard time dealing with the fact that, infact, this life, our planet etc is all so insignificant compared to the vast emptiness of space and time( humanity has been around like <0.01% of how long the universe exist). The idea that whether I was a good law-abiding optimistic person, or a depressed criminal has really 0 meaning to the universe.
Infact, the majority of the people doesn't even CARE about WHY we exist, what there purpose/meaning is. They just eat, work, sleep, reproduce, and are more interested in finding friends/what's on telly tonight, and other simple stuff.
The Universe couldn't care less if we would blow ourselves up.
