What is the purpose of life- Is It Predefined?

What is the Purpose of Life?

We keep finding the purpose of our lives and think that there must be a reason as to why God has sent us on this earth and almost a major part of our lives is spent thinking about that reason. We think to ourselves what is the purpose of life-Is it Predefined?

Then, we start creating false assumptions about what our life’s purpose is. Sometimes we think that the main purpose of life is “to be happy”. But,the major question is how to find that happiness? There are various ways through which we think we can be happy like:

1. Hanging out with friends.

2. Partying every weekend.

3. Buying expensive things.

4. Going on a date.

5. Going on a solo trip.

6. Etc.

Happiness vs illusion of happiness?

But does any of this really make us happy or do they just create an illusion of happiness?

Well, it’s not necessary that God has sent everyone with a purpose.And,oh,just by the way, some people’s life purpose is to find the existence of God itself. So, then what is the purpose of life and is it really predefined?

Predefined purpose of life.

Can you create your own purpose?

So,now what to do? You might be wondering if one doesn’t have any predefined purpose, then what is even the point of our existence?

Well, let me make it easier for you. We may not have any predefined purpose but we definitely can create our own purpose and that purpose can be anything. It can be as simple as helping a needy, fighting for injustice, helping someone get out of depression, giving shelter to the needy to name a few.

Often,we become so busy in finding the purpose of our life that we often forget to live. One must remember that we can’t find our purpose by brainstorming or by overthinking. One should try and be in the present and make that present situation the major purpose of our lives at that point in time.

That is quite well written. Currently, even I am feeling the same, as my life is at a critical juncture.

I’m not sure why but this blog is loading very slow for me. Is anyone else having this issue or is it a problem on my end? I’ll check back later and see if the problem still exists.|

True. Happiness is hard to define and hard to find. We always want more

True, most of the time we get so engrossed with life and worry about why we are here instead of truly living. Well as for me, I try my best to worry about things within my control and worry less about things beyond my control. This is very well thought, thanks for sharing

    Yes, you put it out so well. “To worry more about the things within our control and less about the things we can’t control”. Thank you so much.

A lot of my old activities were definitely just an illusion of happiness for me.
I think I’m getting back to a path of true happiness though. A lot of it really is just stopping to truly appreciate the moment.

Thank you for sharing!

Hi Tobby this was lovely to read and this is exactly the question I’ve been battling with searching for my purpose to a point that I forget to be grateful and live in the moment. I feel like this was better explained . Making the major situations the purpose of our lives can make us do things excellently and find joy in them. Our hearts are always looking ahead not that it’s a bad thing but to a point that we lose focus to the present moment. Thank you for unveiling this important matter of making the present moments our purpose see you around cheers.

Very good article. I absolutely appreciate this website. Stick with it!|

I agree! I think it’s your own responsibility to figure out what your purpose is – or even to create a purpose. People derive meaning from different things and activities, you just need to figure out what that is for you.
