We all look for purpose in our everyday lives. What job should I pursue? Should I pursue a job at all? What bag of potato chips should I go with? Never the sour-cream and onion; They make my breathe smell bad.
Anyways, back to purpose. Before asking what purpose you could possibly have, given our obvious lack of presence/influence in this universe, ask why you’re asking about your purpose at all. Who are you asking?? Purpose is so often attributed to a ‘lost soul’ suddenly having a life altering experience in which they have been shown their purpose.
This is the wrong way to depict purpose in my view. Purpose in my opinion is simply discovering what you want in life. It doesn’t have to be given to you in a book. And it doesn’t have to be shown to you through way of a horrible experience (although that may often be the case).
The only purpose you have, is the purpose you give to yourself. If you want to help people, then you can make that be your purpose. It doesn’t have to be given to you, and you don’t have to sit on your ass waiting for a sign to tell you what you want.
Purpose, it’s yours for the making.
