    Have you known your purpose in life? How?

    Most individuals seem to be lost in the search for their purpose in life.
    I wonder if there are people out there who really identify their purpose here on Earth.

    After being out of teaching for ten years, I got back into it as a sub.  From the minute I walked into the school, I knew I was meant to be there.  Teaching brings me joy.  It took being away from it and back again to have no doubt it is my purpose.  A great book on finding your purpose is Finding Your Own North Star by Martha Beck.

    That's pretty cool g-girl!
    I'm gonna take your recommendation and read Martha Beck's book.
    I've found my purpose through meditation and philosophical inquiry, I know I'm meant to inspire the questioning of the limits of our perception, and that creation is my main purpose. I discovered my truth only by working on what I love, practicing and persevering to become the person I wish to be.
    I still feel  I don't have all the pieces of the puzzle, but In my soul I fully trust my purpose.

      Taking time to reflect seems to be a good way of determining what you want in life. I do hope that you'll soon be sure of your purpose. Thanks for the response!

    The purpose of life is the work you do and be most satisfied with. I enjoy writing and earlier used to do painting as well. But now for a long time I am not into painting. But these means of creativity is for me is the ultimate purpose as  I feel so satisfied after every little thing i write now.
    So for me its any form of creativity which gives me ultimate pleasure is the purpose of life.
    Good question.
