Is it possible, just possible that life has no purpose, and the only thing to do is just have the experience?
Then after asking be aware of the reactions and the justifications as to how that is not possible, could never be possible and how dare you even suggest it!
It is only now I have come to realize that we are defending the amount of money, time and effort we have invested in coming up with an answer to the simple question of what is my life about? Then when we think we have the answer we defend it with all we have, even to the point of defending it when we really know that our current life is not working for us, we are not really happy but hey, it’s what we know and our current situations are just probably a test of our resolve, even if its lasted for years!
My question is, and it’s one I invite you to consider, who came up with the idea that there had to be a purpose to life? I mean apart for all those who profit from giving the answers, or formulas etc, who actually said you have to have a purpose to your life, otherwise you will disappear in a puff a smoke and never be heard from again. Or worse still meander through life never making anything of it and at the end go, what a bloody great waste of time that was!
Now at this stage you may start to think I’m against life purpose, to be and achieve, to make the most out of myself and be a success, and I will tell you I’m neither for or against it. As I personally have experienced if you’re honest with yourself it does not make any difference. You see a real Truth does not require you to believe in it or not,it just IS. Take gravity for example, you can jump off a 100ft cliff and protest all you like about how you don’ believe it exists on the way down, but my guess is the end result will be the same.
The same goes for Life Purpose, is it the journey, is it the destination or does it actually matter?
It has been my experience that the minute I gave up looking for a life purpose, and started purposefully living, I started to experience my life.
I realized that I did not have to spend my life doing, nor did I have to spend my life being. All I had to do was show up and be prepared to engage in the life that was presented to me. Again in me experience there are no secret formulas or maps to be found or bought, programs to do, goals or visions to be set, I am already who I need to be to live the life I came here experience. I don’t need a purpose to life to justify why I am here or why I do what I do.
So you may ask if this is really what’s its about, if this is a truth of life, why is it that very few are promoting its existence and joyful results? My only answer to that is how would you charge people hundreds or even thousands of dollars to show them that they are searching for nothing, it does not exist, you have no purpose and really no path to find it! You are already all you need to be, or will ever be for that matter, and its only your fear that this may be true, that is holding you back from experiencing it?
If you take the time to become aware of life, it shows you the journey, the signs and the path.
In my experience through all that I have done and experienced, the courses, programs and such, the one thing that I have found is that they were signs on my path for a unique experience of life. My only issue was that I thought they were the answer in themselves, and I have great appreciating for all the teachers and masters I have found along the way, for they were the ones who have pointed me to the experience I am having today.
My suggestion is that there is no journey without a destination, and no destination without a journey so really the question is mute. Just as long as you keep looking at the moon, rather than the finger pointing at it, and turn up every day and engage in the experience then you could even call that a worthy purpose if you need one.
Currently on our travels we enjoy both the journey, the destination and really appreciate the signs along they way. So what’s the purpose you might ask, and the answer for me would have to be I don’t know, so then why did we do it?
Because we can and it’s an experience.
