    What is the purpose of living?

    Why should we set goals, aim to achieve success and happiness, compete and look forward to another day when at the end we'll die(we don't even know when) and never be heard of again?

    Life and Living is bound together by a single purpose.
    So therefore the purpose for Life is for LIving and the purpose for Living is for Life.

    When the two are separated, they are applied unto different purposes.
    It then stand to reason, that whatsoever purpose they are applied, it will appear vain and nonsensical without any worthwhile goal.

    This is so because Life and Living can only be separated by death, and this Death is seen by worthlessness of any other applied purpose.
    The ultimate face of death is  unjustified hate.
    To live a life unto a vain purpose, gives birth to and foster the growth of hatefulness.

    So the key to rejoin Life and Living, is to live with a singleness of purpose,
    Which is realised in Love, So loving your neighbor restore Life and Living.

    This is the why the Only and eternal commandment still rings true, in every stage of Living. For it alone can restore Life and LIving to Purpose, which is unto themselves.

    Love your neighbor as yourself.

      That's a good argument

    Because living life without such things make its pretty dull and boring.  Most people hope to leave some mark on the planet, and many do achieve success and are remembered long after they are gone.

    Life is what you make of it....it can be heaven or hell.  Your choice.
