Understanding life’s purpose

Understanding life’s purpose

 One of the most important driving force in Human life is the word “Purpose”.

Your life purpose consists of the central motivating aims of your life, the reasons you get up in the morning. Purpose guides life decisions, influence our  behavior, shape our goals, offer us a sense of direction, and create meaning to our existence. For some people, purpose is connected to their vocation and gives meaningful and fulfilment to their work.

I would define purpose as the inner (intent) drive of a person that enable one see the bigger picture from the starting point of existence. In other words, purpose is the original meaning (intent) that runs every human being, be it honesty or deception.

Purpose therefore when applied, in regards to life brings harmony, peaceful coexistence which is the key to a successful life. From an evolutionary perspective, the purpose of human life is to survive long enough to reproduce and ensure the multiplication of the specie.

A capitalist, for example, might seek to generate as much wealth as possible, while a selfless person may hide their true intend tell you their purpose is to help others. In all of the above, bring to mind the question, “What is your Purpose?”.

This is the most asked question in the world today as far as human existence is concerned. We are so preoccupied  with survival, world crisis, global economic changes etc, that we fail to realize that life is something beyond survival and earthly activities.  We fail to realize that we can not live out our Purpose or our potentials by deviating from the original concept and plan of the Creator of life itself, God.

Man as a living soul or specie craves for freedom and creating fiction to satisfy motive, dominance, authority and power to safeguard his territory which is a major destruction of purpose and coexistence between the original concept and plan of the Creator, God.

Purpose or a man is  survival, reproduction, Authority, dominance, governance, which are not actually far from the Creators own Agenda for mankind which are cultivation, reproduction, dominion and subduing earth.

Our world is plagued with so many distractions and selfish aim of mankind that living out purpose now depends on who calls the shot and with whom your loyalty lies. And this is traceable to benefits and satisfying  our unlimited wants as individuals. However one of the most destructive blow to purpose is “Religion”, which I would describe as a major catalyst to God’s original plan for Humanity. It could be traced back to man wanting to dominate and rule over another man or territory thereby leading to man worship and an aggressive quest for supernatural authority as a way of dominance, something that has changed or lead us all to this point of fear, lack, want, depression, suicides, false theories and so on. However, it is important to know your purpose as from the original aim of the creator of life itself, God.

Knowing your purpose in life helps you live life with integrity. People who know their purpose in life know who they are, what they are, and why they are the way they are. When you know yourself, it becomes easier to live a life that’s true to your core values, which is a major leap to fulfilment and self worth in thie cold and cruel world filled with hate and destruction.

Purpose is your door to happiness, and happiness is free as long as you live right, Every man ought to discover and  serve his purpose within the time allotted to it’s fulfillment. This is the secret of a life well lived.
