Purpose

It is generally believed that we need to find our purpose in life to be fulfilled. I don't argue that point but wonder whether we have only a single purpose as is often thought for our lifetime.
We are constantly changing according to the circumstances in our life. Events occur that are not in our control, peoples' decisions which we do not control impact us, changing knowledge and experiences change us, we age and see new concepts and interact with new people, and so on.
Perhaps we need to find different purposes at different times in our lives to keep growing. Perhaps we need to reexamine our purpose or purposes throughout our lives to maximize our lives to the best of our ability.
We need to keep ourselves challenged and evolving throughout our lives and perhaps a single unchanging purpose is not sufficient to accomplish that.
Your thoughts?

Each of us has its own purpose-why we exist here on earth. And sad to say, not all are making "that" purpose gear towards the betterment not only of humankind but also to the world as a whole. That's why there are conflicts everywhere...what a sad reality.

Ernie Small said...

i find it interesting that we, as human beings, have come up with the concept of purpose in the first place, and find it to be proof of its inherant value to us. What would be the purpose of deciding on purpose not to lead a life of purpose?

We all have a purpose in life to fulfill which can be either our aim in life or the way we want to see things fulfilled but it doesn't mean that all our wants and needs are our purpose in life. A purpose is somewhat more broader and more stronger the impact of which plays a very crucial role in our lives.
