Life: What Is Its Purpose?

Updated on April 16, 2017

The Purpose of Life

What is the genuine meaning of life? Why are we all here? Speaking scientifically, life is the time period between the birth and death of a being or the biological condition that distinguishes animals and plants from inorganic matter. The meaning of life socially accepted has been derived from philosophical and religious contemplation. Yet, mankind has no been able to contrive the purpose of life. Some religious scholars claim that the purpose of life is to search for God, others say it's to live and die for others. But the actual theory is quite unique, it is to make PEACE with your inner being.

Often, during the harsh journey of life we find yourselves in a state of war with our inner being. We force ourselves to accept things merely because they're socially accepted, we force our inner being to do things just because our parents or teachers wants us to, not because we truly from the inside want to. Wait a second! What is this 'inner being'? The inner being is our conscience, which is also the seat of our intelligence. It is what instructs us what to do and when.

The purpose of life lies in the truth that life is not a war to be won not even a game to be played. It is an exceptional opportunity to experience eternal bliss. This 'eternal bliss' can be acquired by not forcing our inner being to come in terms with the illogical theories of society but by giving it freedom of thoughts to express, exhibit and convey itself to other inner beings, letting it wander freely without curtailments, by simply letting it feel the happiness and not merely be happy. There's a thin line of difference between these two and one needs to understand it to attain the true purpose of life.

      All Religions (philosophies) come to this:

      Oneness of God (society for atheists),

      Oneness of Religion (ritual behavior).

      Oneness of Man

      Equality of men and women spiritually (morally),

      and Harmony of science and religion.

      Our purpose is to work to bring these about through education and discussion.

      Life's purpose cannot be defined but to find your purpose of life, which is different for every individual... You gotta believe in your existence and follow your heart, no matter what comes in the way and that's what this article says. But if family or friends are the reason for you not able to find ur purpose, then it's up to you how to make them understand your way and that's what a person can at least do to achieve

      It’s hard to say I agree or disagree with your article. I feel that your purpose is an individual thing. Something someone else can’t tell you it must come from within. If you feel your work is the most important thing then that I your purpose. If family and friends are the most important to you then they are your purpose. A purpose can be good or bad and can change over time. Someone may have a different purpose in their twenties then they will have in their forties. The key is to focus on what is important to you and why it is important. A person who thinks work is their purpose may have family as the purpose with work making family life easier. My point is that a person should do their best at whatever they are doing.
