    There isn't a purpose to life because the future/past don't exist, the only thing that exists is the right now

    Re: The Purpose of life?

    I suggest readding some of the posts that are replies to a qestion on this board "Why do I exist?" Manhy insightful anwsers that might help you. BIG suggestion, look at your relationships. Who is your friend/friends? One good friend is like GOLD. Also "Who do you believe is your creator?" That might be interesting to explore.

    Life is what you make of it. Also know that, regardless of what you have, it can be taken away in a flash. Don't hang on to 'things'. Things come and go.

    You can either make your life count for something or you can just live it to the fullest for your own pleasure. I have done neither. I'm 42 and regret every wasted moment.

    Don't spend your life trying to figure out the purpose of life. The only purpose in life is to live it.

    Do what makes you happy. Be fearless. Be bold. Don't hurt others. Those are the regrets that you can't undo. There are no mulligans in life. Start living while you are still young enough to change course in mid stride without breaking a hip. ;-)

    Re: The Purpose of life?

    I have thought about this question many times. Why are we here? I figured it out last year [after all this time]. . . . we are here for each other -- no matter if we are strangers, neighbors, friends, siblings, etc. Random kindness goes a long way, even if it is a small thing like holding a door open for someone or letting someone scoot in front of you in a lane of traffic. Humans need someone as well as feeling needed and we have that -- each other. Tread lightly though - some people out there still don't get it. Have an AWESOME rest of your life by making the MOST of it.

    Life is life long process of discovery, triumph, joy, pain, miseries-in other words it is rollercoaster, life is. Nonetheless, all of these are part of growing and developing yourself to a better person. You just have to live the day as it is and enjoy it while you still can.Life is too short.

    Re: The Purpose of life?

    Hi, I find myself wondering this same thing ..."whats the purpose of life" ..... Although I have never found out my purpose yet . I have came to a conclusion that we (human) will never find out what our purpose is until we are almost about to die. The reason I say this is because I've heard people say everyone has a purpose for being here , and once you find that purpose you accomplish it and your time is up on Earth. I believe we live our passion but there is 1 special purpose we must accomplish . I myself don't even understand life , I never have. I've always felt as if something was missing in my life and can never quite put my finger on what it is. My advice to you is just live. You are still really young and can accomplish a whole lot. Don't stress yourself out trying to find your purpose , your purpose will come to you , I truly believe we cant go searching for our purpose . Whatever it is meant for you to do , most likely you will accomplish before you leave earth. You can search for things you enjoy doing , get involve with fun activities,find a career you're interested in,do things that make you laugh and feel happy. In the mean time focus on what makes you happy and as long as its not hurting you or anyone else its safe . I'd also think the purpose of life is to help others, be kind, and work for God so when we leave the earth we can be in a place (heaven) where we earned peace, real friends, love , and everything we would want and need surrounded by happiness everyday all day with no pain or tears . Life is hard dear , just live safe. good luck and I hope you find things you enjoy doing!

    I don't know what type of your question ,let me know about this . Is you are talking by religion manners ? If not then I think purpose of life is only to make people happy near us .

    Re: The Purpose of life?

    For me its to make a change. when i think about how vast life is, history, the universe...i don't want to be insignificant in the bigger picture (if that makes sense). so i want to leave a lasting impact on the world - be it changing those lives around me through my friendship and kindness, or winning a Nobel prize for a novel discovery. A bit ambitious maybe but it gives me comfort to know that I can mean something.

    Well i could not say anything about your feelings. Even i could not feel it. But i will suggest you that what ever you are doing. Try to fully concentrate on it and leave the unconscious thought which comes in your mind. Make a target of your life and run for it.

    The purpose of life is to live it to the fullest and best of your ability so that you can spend eternity somewhere full of light and love-heaven.

    The purpose of life is a life of purpose. ~Robert Byrne
