I don't usually reply to comments because I have bad social anxiety, please forgive me!


Interests

I was looking through some essays on existentialism and found an interesting one about human purpose. this is just a quote from it, but the whole thing was here: www.youareyourpath.com/di_purp…

"Your individual purpose is your choice. It doesn't have to be forever. It can be from day to day. One intention will lead to another; intention builds on itself. It can be helpful to forget for the time being what your purpose is here on earth in the larger sense and ask yourself when you wake up in the morning, what's my purpose here on earth today? Keep it simple. Practice setting intention in your day to day activities and it will become simpler to manifest larger intentions, year to year... or lifetime to lifetime.

The word purpose is an interesting one. Experiment for a moment with shifting your consciousness from the phrase "I have purpose" to "I am purpose." Everything in the universe is essentially purposeful. Even what is called accident, randomness, chaos, in the universe is part of a net of action and interaction. Whatever is given birth to in a given moment is intimately connected to what has previously come into being and passed away, and what will come into being. Everything in the universe is energetically connected to everything else. There is a pattern of relatedness, of meaning, in the forms of the human life. That's why people can read signs of one kind of another, cards, shells, bones. The patterns speak.

Affirm, "I am a part of a whole, I am not alone, I am related to everything that is." Go out into the forest. Notice the configurations of clouds, leaves, branches, rocks. Feel yourself a part of the configuration, just another part, no more, no less. Be there, silent, listening. Don't ask for an answer. Later, as you are in motion, walking home, try asking yourself, what's my intention for this human life? What do I want more than anything from this life? And what do I want to do for this life, to honor it, to show my love for it? See what arises. The next morning when you wake up, ask yourself, what can I do today to manifest my intention?"

reading these helps me understand there is no "end goal" in life, and that a lot of suffering can come out of searching for one. there's always more to learn, and more room for improvement, even when you believe yourself to be in a perfect position.

and as always, discussion is welcome!

Sorry to bother, but I have opened up point commissions to help raise some money for a huge dental bill. I would appreciate if you could stop by and read it. Thank you, foxpens.
