Does Life Have Purpose?
Is there purpose in all the random happenings of our lives, or do we live in a random world without purpose? Many people I have known believe we live in a random world without purpose. They believe life is an accident; fate is a fluke and the future a fling. They believe in coincidence. They believe existence is aimless, haphazard, and unintentional. We live…we die…that’s all there is.
I believe in purpose. I may not see the purpose of each of my actions…but I believe my actions have purpose in this world. I believe we live with intent, be that intent good or bad, conscious or unconscious. I believe our intent in life guides our purpose. Seemingly random acts are not actually random…coincidence does not exist…and life has purpose.
Our purpose in this life is driven by our intent...and our intent by our purpose. It is up to each of us to decide what is our purpose. We must then focus our intent on that purpose. There is a reason why successful people are known as being "focused"...why their actions are called "intentional"...why they are known to have a "purpose".
Decide what you want in life...this is your purpose. Focus on your purpose, understand that this is what you intend. Focusing our intent on our purpose will bring about change in our lives. Do not be hindered by the thought that what you want is too hard. Focus yourself, believe in yourself, and see how change occurs.
I attempt to live with conscious intent. My intent is to spread love and acceptance in our world. I see too many people obsessed with possessions and power…people who mistakenly correlate their worth (and the worth of others) with their station in life. I intend to help people learn that life is not about what we have, but what we give. We all have the power to give; be it love, friendship, a helping hand, or something more tangible such as money.
I believe the more we give, the happier we are. Giving freely without expectations of payback brings a warmth to our lives that we can never achieve through possessions, power or station in life. I believe if you want happiness in life you must live to spread happiness in life. It is in our intentions that we direct our purpose. And, I truly believe that what we intend directs what we receive.
I could give you many examples of how seemingly random
actions actually have purpose. It may take years to see the outcome of random happenings and recognize
purpose. Looking back, over the years, I can see the patterns
that connect various unrelated events in my life.
I can trace the events leading up to my present situation…falling in love with a wonderful man and moving to California…back 6 years at least. Seemingly non-connected actions and happenings, both good and not so good, all worked together to get me where I am today. I look back and trace the path from the past to the present and realize how intent and purpose have connected to bring me happiness.
Quantum mechanics teaches us that all things are interconnected. We can change the outcome of random events through conscious intent. In other words, our conscious intent creates our reality. Our intent and purpose guides how we respond to the world, and how the world responds to us. This is a proven fact in the world of quantum mechanics.
Many people do not believe in the power of conscious intent. They say they do not have the power to change their reality, much less the world. Quantum mechanics proves differently. Quantum mechanics shows we have the power to change our lives…our reality…our world. We only need to focus ourselves. Our consciousness is the guiding force of reality. When we focus on love our reality contains love. When we focus on hate our reality contains hate. We truly get what we think.
Live life with intent. Maintain your purpose. Change your reality. Take time daily to review your purpose and intent in life and focus your thoughts on it. Look at your actions at the end of the day to determine if they have reflected your intent and purpose. Think about how you may have effected the outcomes. Review how changes in your actions may have changed the outcomes. Look for the patterns in your life...are they what you want? If they are not what you want, change your focus...focus on your intent...live with purpose.
