    What is the most valuable purpose in life?

    Many a times I wonder about what and why of life. We perform multitude of activities in our lives for decades together and at times we realize the futility of most of the activities which occupied our mind so intensely. Some one said that love is the mainstay of life and appears to be quite true. But sadly love takes a back seat in out daily fights for so called achievement.

    As for me, I believe the most valuable purpose in life is to do whatever that is going to make someone completely happy in this life  but never at another person's expense.

    Beautiful question - thank you for this opportunity. Love is the utlimate goal and all paths lead to the ultimate goal of loving others as ourselves. The traumas of life, from hurt to hunger get in the way of loving each other. All of the traumas of the world could be solved with the focus that "love is the way". It is a simple saying, not trite but meaningful - if you ponder the many options and obstacles life presents to us each day.

    The first question is "Have you discovered your purpose?"  Your purpose is the most valuable for you; my purpose is the most valuable for me.  Our purposes include the exchange of mutual love with our mates, relatives and friends who are ultimately part of our purpose.  It takes time and effort to figure it out, and arrange it to make sense; but our individual purposes make room for us to enjoy the journey of life.  Enjoyment may not be every single minute, but there is definitely room for it.

    not sure I understand the question.... as a Christian- the answer is to live for Christ.
    if you're not a Christian.... well that's a tough question to answer, as eternal matters don't carry much weight.... there are only so many toys (i.e. cars, homes, gadgets) or money one can collect.
    and another observation... you lamented the lack of love in daily fights for "achievement"- we have to carve out time in our lives for what we deem is important.

    Live your life to whatever degree you can muster.  Have experiences not beliefs.  Flow as much as you can so that your life is not just one of existing but Living.

    Purpose can be overrated.  Interestingly when you achieve a purpose you have done it and then look for another.  Life is not just about a purpose.  You living is the purpose.

    agree totally with Jewel- in answer to the question "what is the purpose of life?"my gurujee once answered "the purpose of life is life itself" and so if the purpose of life is life we ought to live it to the fullest- however we  define it.

    There can be a purpose, or no purpose, for living. It all depends on the self. My purpose could be scoring all distinctions in physics, earning a lot of income, or devote my time to humanitarian causes. Everyone is different, and everyone ought to live differently.

    My most valuable purpose in life to to find out my purpose of existance. Why am I here on earth? How do I relate to other fellow human beings and the environment around me.
    Find my purpose gives me responsibilty to see other fellow human beings and other beings as equal in value and from a single source called the Master, God, One, Whole or Universe.
