I wonder

I wonder What is the purpose of life? We are born in this world, then we enter into childhood, into teens, into your youth, get married, work, then become parents, work throughout your life, enjoy your success, get down by failures, enter old age and die...this cycle continues.

Everyone follows this same cycle. If else, Do we know what is our purpose? If at all is there a purpose? Or are we leading a pointless, directionless life?

I wonder....

If at all there is a purpose - is something very difficult to answer and that is what many are trying to find out....

Let us look this way......Assume there is no purpose in life; but we are all born and have to live..so instead of searching the purpose of life, if we decide to live happily helping others along the way, I think we will never wonder what the purpose of life is...

Believe me. there is no purpose to life other than reproduction. See dogs. see monkeys. man is just another animal, gifted with an extra organ (brain) which helps him make his own life more comfortable. but for that, he is just reproducing and dying. philosophy is all theory. nobody has seen life after death. Spiritual quest is only a quest to realize your own mind power. the question you have posed now is the chief topic of all religions. but nobody has a decisive answer. that is why so many religions are there in the world today. Net: if at all there is a purpose to man's life, man has failed to find it.
