I want you to think about your life’s purpose for a second.
Have you found one?
Or have you made one up?
And if you made one up what was it in relation to?
Were you inspired, moved to take action?
I currently have no life’s purpose because I don’t want to take responsibility for one.
When it comes to taking responsibility I worry about ‘What if I do the wrong thing?’ so I think ‘Better play safe’ and ultimately I do nothing at all.
“Discover your true passion Mark” they tell me.
I actually don’t want to be responsible for one.
It appears to be the case that there is no inherent meaning in life, unless I make one up.
A life changing challenge?
But what if I pick the wrong one and ruin it?
My life that is.
So what do I do now?
Ultimately I am the most irresponsible person on the planet.
Because I refuse to be responsible for choosing not to be responsible!
I want it all to be someone else’s call, never to be my fault.
Over the next month or so I will be looking at becoming responsible for creating the meaning in life.
If there is any meaning to life at all, then you and I are creating the meaning for it.
I have learned that playing the WHAT’S THE F***ING POINT card leaves me miserable and upset, seeking an answer, a reason for feeling lost and alone.
I have learned that playing the I DO NOT KNOW WHAT THE POINT IS card leaves me wondering at the complexity of the Universe and that moment by moment there is nothing to look for because even if I found it I would not know what it was.
I have learned I am not the body or mind and in that discover I at least an interested experiencer and observer of its habitual patterns, the habitual ‘me’ a ghost in the machine.
So what of your life’s purpose?
What is it?
How did you find it?
