Some of us live lives where we constantly are taking from others, leeching off the very essence of the good that flows from the hearts of those who give freely to those around them, while some live their lives in constant need; the need to have….the need to give…the need to feel needed…Some of our lives are mere extensions of other peoples dreams and aspirations, be it our will or not.
Many of us struggle and clamor about to find what out purpose is in life. Many try to define themselves in ways that best suit their current understanding of what purpose is…Be it to give freely to all those that come into our lives, Or to be the takers of the world, be it to be those that swindle and steal…the fact is, our purpose, or our so called reason for being is purely a reflection of our current mental state and is directly related to how we have been molded by our upbringing and environment.
Our purpose is what we make it to be. We choose our own reason for being, we define our own existence. Our actions, life experience and views of what we call life, all play into our own man made equation of purpose….each event adding its own variable in the formula that is set to give us the answer to what we constantly strive for. Ironically, no two answers will be the same due to the fact that no two people share the same mindset, beliefs or upbringing. We all have our own idea and interpretation of what our purpose should be. So remember, that each day we live, each breath we take is giving yield to the answer we seek….
Which is to live, just live. This is the purpose of our existence…to live our lives, experience what it has to give and go onto the next plane of existence when our time on this one is over.

|I expressed my view of the purpose of life in a poem here:
I believe everyone has precisely the same purpose of life - the fundamental thing life on this whirling space pebble should accomplish.
We look at a fact, derive meaning, assess value, determine mission, and realize purpose, IN THAT ORDER, if we want to get it right.
I shall discuss all of those in a future article.
Feel free to respond.

|I like this-- it really makes you think. The last stanza says it all--"just live" Thanks for sharing it.

|To live, just live. To experience experiences which have never been, nor ever will be duplicated. As no one can experience what Dullani's writings have done to enhance my perspective of life. He will reap the benefits of my life's experiences when I share them with him in the next stage of our evolution. An eternal one at that.|

|There will come the time, that our pathways end, and it's then we will understand.
We all have purpose..some just get lost in the crowds.
Thought provoking piece.
