What is the purpose of life?
Can anyone help me determine the purpose of life?
We all lead different lives. You must create your own meaning :D
But I reckon the very core and basic purpose of my life is “to be happy and useful”. Everyone wants to be happy, and being useful helps achieve that for myself and others!
Well said mike
Genetically, to reproduce. Anything other purpose…could be considered to be purely opinion.
ha..and why reproduce?
To find your own answer to this question is the purpose of your life :)
Is there a purpose for a bird to catch fish? Is there purpose for the stars to shine? Is there purpose for you to feel your heart beating?
Is there a purpose? Is there a purpose for purpose? Is there a purpose for knowing what this purpose is? Is there a purpose for knowing purpose even exists? Is there a purpose for caring about purpose?
Ha ha, i hope there are no wannabe psychoanalysts on he or they might conclude that we are exhibiting a obsessive-compulsive behavior…
@Seth, there is no evidence to suggest our purpose is to reproduce. Obviously it must happen for life to continue, but I wouldn’t call that a purpose. I’ll use this quote again because it sums up so many thoughts of mine.
Consider humans have golf-ball sized consciousness’ We can only look out to the world with a golf-ball size consciousness, can only understand things with a golf-ball sized consciousness. We are meant to expand this circle of ours, to understand more, to take in more, to be more conscious.
The purpose of life is to EXPERIENCE Who You Really Are. I would reccommend reading Conversations with God if this topic intrigues you.
What comes. Waiting to be lived
I believe the meaning of life is something simple, so simple it’s over analyzed. I look at the beginning of man-kind and see a pattern. Love.
I agree with Kirk on this one- I think that the purpose of life is to simply enjoy what is fortunately given to us and that is just too simple for many people to understand so they overanalyze it. But I also do think that the biggest part about finding ‘truth’ is to find your own.
