Purpose of your life is whatever the heck you want it to be. Life is amoral. Life in itself is purposeless.
If the whole earth gets wiped out, the universe is still gonna be there. The universe is not going to care if you ever existed. So relax. Seriously! Just relax.
The whole beauty of life is that it just happened. You are breathing. What more do you need? Happiness is “breathing in & breathing out” and our purpose is just a story that we tell ourselves about why we are breathing. Mind plays games with us. Mind needs a story that it can tell itself and to others. So, in the veil of finding a purpose, we just keep finding justifications on why we should be alive. We don’t need any justifications or reasons to be alive. Life just “is”. Smile, relax, and play around. Don’t spoil all the fun by wasting your remaining time in trivial questions like “What is the purpose of my life?”.
Like we are stamped by the people of this world as hindu, christian, muslim while we are born, same way the stories that are considered good, ethical and moral by people close to us are stamped on us.
Then, we are forced to find our purpose within these stories. Everything is false. Wake up. Snap out of it.
Being a good doctor, engineer, entrepreneur, boss is a utility that pays well and satisfies our desires but being any of these things isn’t a purpose in itself.
Create your own story. Even better, create one story a day, one new purpose whenever you feel like it.
Life is just like a blank canvas of paper. Put any paint on it. If red paint makes you feel more alive and makes your juices flow in a way that you feel connected, contended and happy with life then paint with red color else use some other color.
We don’t choose to be born, we don’t choose to die, we don’t choose when we breathe & when we don’t but we certainly can choose to give any story/purpose to our lives any-day. We can take life as a game and play with our own rules. We are already life, in our living all purposes are fulfilled. Don’t create a new matrix of false stories and don’t limit yourself.
Our body is overflowing with juices (You may call them hormones, life, cosmic energy etc..) and they are getting used no matter what we do. So, why not do things that make these juices sing and dance with joy. Don’t become a utility for the world. Realize now that you are your own story.
There’s an animated movie called “Rango”. Watch it. Even Rango gets it in the end when he says “Who am I? I could be anyone”. Give yourself a new story right now. Become that new story. Then change that story and completely re-write your purpose. Use this special power that you have, it’s inexhaustible. No cheat codes required. Game of life could be your best adventure if you play it well.
Life in itself is purposeless. It just happened. We are born, we will die. We might as well as enjoy it. So if you really are searching for the meaning in it and the the purpose of your life then you just might stop right now.
You could be anyone. Cause the purpose of your life is whatever the heck you want it to be.
