If not, I’m willing to take risks and do things I haven’t done. I was usually the shy goody two shoes who was too scared to get into trouble because of the consequences and what my family would say. But if the only purpose of life is just to live it, well... I might aswell just... live it. PEEEEAACEEE
Purpose is an artificial construct. I'm assuming that you are trying to figure out what purpose you have without religion. It doesn't matter. You are powerful. You are linked to the the entire universe in incredible ways that we are just beginning to understand and it isn't magical but it is wonderful. You are made of energy that cannot be destroyed only changed. You are made of the stuff that was formed in the crucible of a giant star that exploded with such force that it blew out its center thousands of light years away. You are a random chance on a random planet but you are also a way for the universe to be able to understand itself. You are special and yet should be in awe of your insignificance because the universe is incomprehensibly large, strange and complex.
Live your life. Make your own purpose. Give others your light and shine brighter together.
I think you are on to something, you have realized that you need to live your life...not everyones else's expectations of how you should live it. cathartic?
“It is only those who do nothing who makes no mistake.” ...I can't believe that i got to quote Kropotkin
"Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country," President John F. Kennedy said in his Inaugural speech. His words hit me right in the center of my 10-year-old chest.
I got a Master of Public Administration degree because I get the greatest reward from doing work that helps other people.
Since 2006, I have volunteered as a college mentor, helping low income, minority high school seniors write essays to apply for college and scholarships. It thrills me to send these kids to college.
With three young women I mentored, I hiked Icicle Gorge trail in June 2018 for four miles. From the left, Elisabeth and Tammy plan to become medical doctors. Teresa is studying to become an accountant. All are first-generation students.
These are remarkable young women. It was great to see them!
Elisabeth just graduated from Gonzaga University, WA. She graduated without any loans. Renewable scholarships, financial aid and work-study covered tuition, books and lodging for her bachelor degree.
While in college, Elisabeth volunteered as a mentor and tutor for elementary school students for three years. She is taking a year off before applying to medical school. In Oregon, Elisabeth will be a Jesuit volunteer, helping dying people in hospice, as well as their families.
"I love kids," Elisabeth said. She plans to became a pediatrician or family doctor.
This question of the meaning of life.ln literature humanities can fill an entire library. There is only one true creator in my opinion. You can actually truly see the creator. All you have to do is look in a mirror. For myself it is to create more life and to better everything within my influence. Unfortunately for some it is to ruin and take life.
