What's the purpose of life for you?

Hello everyone, I was just thinking, what's the purpose of life for you? For me it's about finding answers for everything I want to know and leaving something meaningful for future generations, like something that would make your life easier or save you time.

I believe, that in the future it might be my children if I ever have some.

Is It Normal?

  • I believe the purpose of life is to develop

    We have neurons which form clusters which help us interact with our daily environments with increasing success

    It may not be exactly as written by Jung, but his concept of the collective unconscious is most definitely a valid theory to work with. It outlines a sense of the world in a uniquely human way, with archetypes and memes (actual psychosocial thing)

    We all have a subconscious, what some may also call a conscience, that guides us and gives us divine truth if we listen

    All of us have these characteristics and more in common, so at a base level it's everyone's predestination to develop

    And like you said, leaving behind something better than what you were born into is something else I think we also all acknowledge as a virtuous trait. There's this concept called global consciousness, basically the average of every person's mindset on the planet. There's a story that goes along with it about Atlantis, but another human trait I think exists is the idea to promote intelligence and logic so that we all become better people. It's also like the opposite of arguing and fighting, which paints it in a very positive light even without the spirituality aspect

    I believe in the real world application of karma and the golden rule and even people looking out for negativity in a communal way, so naturally I also think it's our duty as people to be morally, ethically good, be like a fountain of positive energy for ourselves and others

    And this may be something personal and not a standard, but I also want to be satisfied with my life when I die. I want to think about everything and shut my eyes in peace. That's why I'm so invested in self improvement and practicing perfecting in everything I do

  • haha you sound like my best friend. her life long goal is to leave something behind for future generations. she says she's scared of being forgotten. she doesn't want to feel like she never existed. on the other hand, i just wanna be happy everyday, buy what i want, go where i want. when i die, i don't think i want to be remembered.

  • I know it sounds like a 'pat' answer, but I want to experience life with God.

  • Cheers. Just like everyone else, what you leave behind will be less than satisfactory.

    Get over it.

    All you can do is to make yourself content. Your level of morality will change the “goodness”.

  • Help as many things as I can, I guess. I am vegan and I am studying to be a doctor so that kinda sounds right

  • Take in a breth, open eyes, get out of bed (unless there's is reason for staying in it), drink coffee, eat something, wander around for about 16 hours, go to bed, and repeat. Forgot; read obituaries to make sure I'm not in it.

  • The purpose of life that I want to follow is constant pleasure. However, if a person refuses to get to know, love and serve God, they go to Hell. I can't bear the thought of being separated from my loved ones for an eternity. Therefore, I must follow the Catholic catechism to avoid the horrible fire.
