On the purpose of life and living fully
by Sandy Newbigging
Every second of every day offers a new beginning. Right now, the forces of creation are miraculously and magnificently coming together to give birth to a brand new moment bursting with potential and possibilities. What you do with it is ultimately your choice, which is why it is paramount to know your ultimate purpose for being born.
Ever wondered what the purpose of life is? It is a universal question that millions of people have considered at least at some point. Unfortunately, many get stuck finding an answer due to both the magnitude of the question and the fact that they mistakenly think their purpose relates to what they do.
In fact, I know people in their sixties and seventies who are still trying to figure out their purpose. Feeling less-than, lost and confused as to what they are supposed to be doing with their life. All the while, missing their life as the years tick by!
You too could spend years trying to discover it; waiting for your eureka moment – when it all becomes clear and you finally discover the purpose of your life. Or you can opt to keep the answer simple (as the truth always is) and consider the liberating possibility that the purpose of life is to live. If you apply this simple truth to your life, I promise that you will rediscover magic.
