    Do you know why you're here?

    Have you determined what you were meant to do and or be in this life? If so, what is it and how do you think it has changed you and your space in the universe; and if you have not determined your purpose, what's holding you back?

    I have read in the Bible that we are here to live a happy life. To take care of the earth and the animals and eachother. God put us here because he wanted intelligent people just enjoy life.

    As an atheist I don't believe in "GOD" like you do. However the purpose in life is to survive as best as you can. By treating people with respect, if deserved, kindness, if shown and the willingness to help others.

    Great question!

    I have recently discovered one of many of my purposes in this life in possibly the most sychronistic and complete way that I have ever discovered anything previous. Never have I encountered something before this, in respect to career, that literally seemed as if it was made for me and I for it.

    For years I have had successful careers but never felt fullfilled with any of them, they had no long term payout, no lasting contribution to the big picture, or purpose in my opinion. This perspective always left me with a nagging quest for something, but for what, I did not know.

    Several years ago by chance I attended a Self Hypnosis course, the foundation of this course was so powerful and long lasting, it began to appear to me to relate to everything in my life, everything I was intersted in. After some time I was finally internally driven to reasearch becoming a certified Hypnotist. I found and took the course and discovered that not only was this the most fascinating and all encompassing subject I had ever come across, as a professional I would be able to utilize every skill and experience I had ever developed over my lifetime (many of which had been put in cold storage for years), and there is a great and lasting benefit to be offered those who you work with. In some strange way what had seemed a very disconnected bunch of events with bits and peices here and there that made up my life up to that point, suddenly all came together like a jigsaw puzzle, everything fit together perfectly, and what once seemed useless now made perfect sense.

    My life has been completely different since I have become and commited myself to being a Hypnotist. I perceive my world in a whole new way, I am more comfortable with myself, I am more comfortable and sure of myself in pretty much everyway, I have even experienced noticiable physical changes.

    All of this tells me, like nothing has ever told me before that I have found my purpose. I was never so sure to commit to anything else before this and have never experienced so many coincidental (not) circumstances that have reinforced that I am indeed exactly where I am supposed to be, doing exactly what I should be doing. 

    I wish everyone will someday, if they have not already, be able to find something that fits every aspect of their being.

    Well, I'm here to practice my expository writing, have some fun, discuss some issues, and maybe make a little money ...

    Oh, wait. You mean why am I on Earth, not why am I on Hub Pages.

    Never mind.

    Personally, I do believe that everyone is born for a purpose.

    What I think of my purpose in life? In search of the way to enlightenment. I believe that I am here to learn and understand human lives while going beyond space.

    What I am saying that I do believe in our Spiritual Soul. If you believe in it, then you will know what I am in search of. If not, then this may not make sense.

    We are living in this earthly plane and if we can transport our soul into the next plane, then you will see yourself as an image in this world. It is like Astra Travel or Soul Travel.

    It is never an easy task as we are being re-born again to learn until the day we succeed in doing so. Then you will totally understand living in this earthly world is all about.

    It is a lesson that we have to go through in life after life till we understand and discover ourselves how to make this as reality.

    We are all here to write books. Some write theirs by making history, others write theirs by just filling the gap and few write theirs in hubpages and other internet blog sites. Lol.

    I believe this will be different answers for everybody as we are all created uniquely. Did I just say created? In that case I am here to share in the purpose of my creator and enjoy all that He put in place for me.

    If I don't know the answer, do you? After all it's your question.
