"To find the answer to the
question you pose, I ask myself, as I ask you and all else, what is the purpose
The purpose of whose
existence, is being wondered about, questioned?
Should that not be
the a priori question, before we get into whether there is a purpose at all, to
or what purpose does life have?
How would you define
the term "purpose"?
The reason, why
something is, in order to fulfill a "goal", an "objective"?
"goal", "objective" has to perforce be beyond
"that" which is to reach the goal?
What is beyond Life,
.............which can be the goal of Life?
When I am all that
there IS, ...........what can I become, which thus can become a goal for I?
Now this question is not what
purpose does life have to individuals, but what purpose does life have
concerning life, no more, no less?"
For Life to have a
purpose, there has to be something which is not-Life, to serve as a goal and
thus define the purpose.
Afraid there ain't
any, as the ice cream man said to the kid.
A suggestion for
consideration,........ Life has no purpose, no meaning.
There is no
"higher" purpose, or "exalted" goal, ........which it serves
to reach or attain.
Or to put it in
another way, ........Life as living in the moment, ........that is its very
meaning, .......for that moment.
Only what is not in
completion,...... can have a meaning, a purpose.
................AS IT IS, in the moment , ...........is in completion.
to moment to moment.
