Defining meaning of life is problematic.
There are many variables and unknowns, as evidenced by your ever-popular question and the many answers given down through history.
Reason implies intelligent design of some type.
Assuming God is warlike is not logical, merely a common assumption.
Assuming reproduction is natural and not also Godly is another assumption.
So, logically, reading a few more authors that interest you would be helpful.
"Man, Master of His Destiny," O. M. Aivanhov,
"The Path of the Higher Self," Mark Prophet,
"The Reincarnation of Edgar Cayce?", Free and Wilcock,
"Adventurer's Guide," Jack Wheeler,
"West with the Night," Beryl Markham,
