A joke about finding the "meaning of life"

A very rich man decides he wants to find the "meaning of life."...He lives in Manhattan, in an incredible apartment with "everything at his fingertips"...So he reads up on the subject and gets into deep meditation and philosophical literature. He practices everything he can try, and in the process hears about a Guru living in Tibet who lives on top of a mountain and knows, "the meaning of life"..ok well he looks into the story and finds that this is true...so,

Our rich friend starts to work out and set up an trip to Tibet and a trek up the mountain. He hires a trainer, and arranges for a number of Yaks and guides to take him up the mountain. Given his lack of exercise, and the very high altitude of the home where the Guru lives..... it takes him 4 months to get ready for the journey..

He is ready..He gets to the bottom of the mountain, and his entourage is there. 15 Yaks and 8 guides and equipment with plenty of supplies to trek up the mountain and get to the small home that the Guru lives in..It takes him a week or so to make the trek, but he finally gets to the home, and walks into it, places a large donation in the correct place, and meets and aid to the Guru..The aid and rich man walk into a dimly lit room, with candles and quiet music. The Guru looks up, and asks, "What would you like to know my friend?"

The rich man says, "I would like to know the meaning of life?" ...The Guru looks up, and goes into deep thought..
Eventually he comes out of his thought and says..

The meaning in life..is...."It is what it is.."

Our rich friend starts screaming..." You mean to say, I came all the way here to to listen to you say, "It is because it is." I spent all this money and time to hear that? Are you nuts?

The Guru stops and looks up, with a very startled and surprised look on his face...totally taken back by the rich man's behavior..no one questions the ...Guru...and then he says , and looks up, in a nervous and totally unsure way, and asks,....isn't it?
