What is the purpose of Life ?
    #572955 - 03/07/02 09:27 PM (22 years, 1 month ago)


To decide and to declare, to create and to express,
to experience and to fulfill, Who You Really Are.
To re-create yourself anew in every moment in the grandest
version of the greatest vision ever you had about Who You Really Are.

I've always had this phrase stuck in my mind, I'm not sure if I made it myself or "borrowed" it from elsewhere.
"To live, to learn, to love"
I believe that in total sums up our total purpose for existance.

To live, liquid on the breeze, exquisite in every detail as imperfect as it might seem.

please don't hold this against me, the drugs made me do it. :wink:
That seems to have been on my screen for too long now and I've almost slid out of my chair.

I don't know.... but for me it does need meaning, if people want to be happy with their live they have to make sense of their lives.. be conscious of what they want in live and dare acting on it, otherwise they would be unhappy.

I want my life to mean something. What that something is is for everyone to find out themselves. I think that sharing and living your life like this and share with others who live with the same intention (not necessarely expressed in the same way) can be and comforting and supporting.

"... at this point in history, the most radical, pervasive, and earth-shaking transformation would occur simply if everybody truly evolved to a mature, rational, and responsible ego, capable of freely participating in the open exchange of mutual self-esteem.
There is the 'edge of history.' There would be a real New Age."

maybe life's purpose is to find purpose, to make order from chaos and to find meaning in something that is essentially meaningless?

I think everyone has a different purpose to life, because everyone has different goals/tastes/personality etc. We're all unique, so I think our purpose/meaning should be as well. I also think that through your life your purpose changes. Variety being the spice of life and all.

Personally, my purpose as I understand it so far is to a) have a good time without infringing on other people doing the same in whatever form having a good time is, b) help coerce other people into thinking about themselves and their relationship to the world so that they can find their own truths. I don't pretend to have all (or any) of the answers, and I might never have any of the answers. I don't even know if there are answers. However, through my cosmic adventure through this mortal coil, I've learned a lot about myself, and I'd like to help other people do the same. I think a large part of the human experience should be shared with other humans, because even if we don't agree, we're all in this together, one way or another.

I think everyone's purpose in life is to gain wisdom through experience. You experience something, you learn something from it. You don't learn from it, you will experience it again in a different or more intense form. You learn from something and you will still probably experience it again... that just life's way of testing if you really learned.

However, this may be everyone's purpose in life, but everyone goes about it in different ways. We are all on different paths of evolution towards the same goal. We all learn the same things, but at different times, and different paces, and in different ways.

The final product of this wisdom will be seen at the end of our lives, when we look back at what we learned, and then add our wisdom to the Universal Mind for all to benefit from. Creation takes another step in evolution. Repeat if neccessary.

I agree with cynical to a certain degree, but I must also conside the existential part of me that reminds me that whatever purpose or meaning we find, WE find it. Every event or happening that we ascribe meaning to, we give it meaning in our life. I admit, life can be really funny, absurd even, and really fucking coincidental. What does it all mean? Shit, I don't have a clue. But as soon as you start putting meanings on things, you move away from pure experience and into the world of logic and words, which does no justice to the former. So, while I am quite tempted to think that my individual abilities are here for a purpose and my friends are here for a reason and that everything happens for a reason, I think that that simplifies and confines things too much and things just need to be let be. If you aren't looking for a reason or a purpose, then things can be just as magnificent, if not more, and you won't feed your ego in the process. Just my two cents.

all aboard
