    What is your purpose in life?

    Do you have a purpose in life? Do you even want a purpose in life? Why do you wake up in the morning? What do you hope to accomplish?

    My purpose is under consideration..
    I want there to be no real purpose and it just be an experience but I don't much like being a human, being alive and all that confusion. I think it's a sick game being played on me or that I accidentally came here or someone left me behind, that's it! That's my purpose, it's to get back home..
    I wake up in the morning because of hormomes, sleep is constantly inviting, I have to remind myself of nature, the sun and beautiful music which outrank sleep. I get out of bed because I should, always!
    I hope to accomplish a better state of mind, to develop the discipline and knowledge to sustain a healthy body and mind and thus helping to eradicate so much darkness and let in more light.. (sorry you caught me at weak moment)

    okay forcing myself to shake it out.... Right..

    I hope to accomplish my aspirations as a writer, I want to find that space in the world to be my home, I want to belong, I want to share a great love. My purpose is to find happyness and peace within myself and to contribute to the world something of myself that will be of some importance or significance no matter how small. And be accepted for who I am. That is my purpose, I'm afraid it's all about me (I desperatley want peace and happyness for all but got over thinking that was in the slighlest way possible a long time ago. It's so out of my control. But I do try and warm people up with love and laughter as often as I can but it's not my purpose.)

    My purpose is to get as close to the truth as I possibly can.

    Hmmm, interesting feelings you have there. Good luck with the writing and great love!

    I have always felt I am supposed to save someones life. Not lives as in a firefighter or surgeon. Just a life, sometime. Have already jerked a little kid of the street (broke his arm) as a big truck thundered by, but that is not the one.
    *shrug*
    That and figuring everything out, but that isn't a purpose just a function.

    Yer well said, I have lots of functions but purpose is tricky no? Saving someone is a fascinating purpose, you are very intriguing I don't know that feeling but feel strongly that there is something I MUST do, something important, but it may not be important conventionly (don't think that is the right word..) but I'm sure you know what I mean.

    Yes. This overwhelming, constant MUST I feel. It has been with me for years and I know myself well enough to say it has nothing to do with work, or love. I mean yeah, looking for that magical love of course, but it is most definitely not my focus. I abhor the lies of politics so it isn't that. My creative projects are mine and frankly don't care if this book is never finished. My paintings and drawings are for me, throw half of them out anyways.

    I just get the feeling that sometime, somewhere I'm going to be doing my thing as usual and I will be presented with an opportunity to act when no one else does. It is a very strong feeling.

    This question is very N. I have never asked myself what my purpose is in life. I just go on living day by day. I don't have a purpose, but I am very interested in finding something meaningful to do. But my perspective is more pragmatic and less philosophical.

    eat as much as I can, live as long as i can and fuck as much as I can.

    maybe make a posative difference in between.
