My Purpose?

I recently polled a few of my readers on the topic of purpose.  The question asked: What is your number one purpose on earth? I received answers regarding Self-discovery, Happiness, Religion, Service, Family, and Environmental.  The interesting part was the large number of emails I received with these responses:

  1. I just don’t know.
  2. After thinking about my first response, I need to change my answer.
  3. I’m not sure if this is really my purpose, but it seems like a good one.

I wonder why we struggle with questions involving our purpose?  Do we need a purpose?  Do we need a reason for our existence?

If we determine that we do in fact need a purpose, let’s hope we pick one we really want.

It is not enough to be busy; so are the ants. The question is: what are we busy about? ~ Henry David Thoreau
