My brother is a Zen Buddhist. His wife is a Catholic. I believe in the Creator. When the three of us discuss the purpose of life, we have seemingly different ideas. But lately I realized that on a deep level, we share similar understanding of this topic:
- We all have a purpose. We are born to fulfill certain tasks on Earth.
- We may not be consciously aware of our purpose, but at any given moment, we are either serving our life purpose, or not.
- Not being aware of our life purpose doesn’t mean that we are actually not serving it.
- It is important to discover our purpose, otherwise we often get “stuck”, unhappy and disillusioned about life.
