purpose driven life
there a purpose of life? What does it mean when men of wisdom say there is always
a purpose in life? If there is life's purpose then why do most people while away
their life without ever finding a purpose in life? What use living a purpose driven
life without a defined purpose?
The answer to
all the above queries on finding a purpose in life is the most crucial
part of life for a human being. The purpose driven life is meant
to be lived by living forms which have not yet evolved to the level
of human beings. Why?
they are devoid of discriminatory powers to choose a goal in life!
The insects, the plants and animals always live a purpose driven
life. They simply have no goal in life. They are as they are. They
simply have their existence and have to abide by the rules of evolution
as defined by Charles Darwin in his theory of evolution.
Only when the living form reaches the level of a human being does one realize
that human life is the highest manifest stage in the cosmic system. The moment
a human being realizes that life has a purpose... one seeks the purpose of his
life. Without a goal in life, Life seems to be incomplete!
the child grows... one comes to learn that every human being has the potential
of becoming a man god like Mahavira,
Christ and Prophet
Mohammed. Is that the crux of life! Is gaining salvation the end purpose
be so... are we required to have a purpose in life linked to salvation as the
present goal of life or is it that we can postpone traveling the spiritual path
for the next manifestation.
The goal and the purpose of life for every human being are gaining enlightenment
and finally salvation in the end. That may or may not be the purpose of life in
the present manifestation. The purpose of life in the present phase can be best
known by hearing the sweet small voice of our soul atman within our heart.
The purpose of
life in every manifestation is driven by our soul atman within. It is our soul
atman that has taken the body and not vice versa. The purpose of life is indirectly
dictated by our soul atman within. If our deeds of the present life are not in
consonance with the directives of our soul atman within... then heartburning,
tensions and stresses become part of daily life.
act provides us complete relief... doing which we find extreme pleasure... something
that we enjoy doing must form our goal of life. It is this goal of life pursuing
which the purpose of our present life would be fulfilled.
It is surprising that almost above 95% people living on Mother Earth pass their
life without ever having a purpose in life. It is almost like taking the routine
path. If we are to ever curtail our cosmic journey... we need to find the purpose
of our present manifestation. And this goal of life shall be prompted to us by
our soul atman within.
being truthful in life we can always hear the sweet small inner voice coming from
our heart. This voice of our soul atman within always guides us on the right path.
Knowing the exact purpose of this life... half the life's journey is complete.
(Franklin Delano Roosevelt) had a fixed purpose in life and that made him one
of the most successful presidents USA ever had in spite of his severe handicaps.
(FDR lost both of his legs).
Madame Curie spent her entire life searching for radium in pitchblende. She was
successful in the end but her success was written all over her body. Her body
had dismally decayed by the powerful rays of radioactivity which led to her death.
She knew what the outcome would be. Her purpose of life was helping the mankind.
She had a very noble purpose in life. She succeeded finally!
Gates... the architect of the Microsoft Corporation and the developer of famous
Windows program also had a fixed purpose in life. His teachers found him academically
weak! Fearing he would bring a bad name to the institution... they turned him
out of the so called place of wisdom!
willed otherwise! Bill Gates pursued a goal of life dear to his heart. He fiddled
with typewriters and gadgets which ultimately led him to develop computer skills
which are unparalleled in the history of mankind. His famous Windows program now
runs almost every computer in the world.
Every success in life demands a neatly defined purpose of life. And this purpose
of life must be fixed in the earlier stages of life.
my own personal case I distinctly remember when I was 11 years of age I had a
deep urge to find and reach God in the present life. By 13 years of age my determination
had been fixed. I had decided come whatever may I shall find God within the present
leads to my leaving the house... leaving my family forever... detaching all bonds
of affiliations with near and dear ones... going to the far away jungles (confines
of the forests) I shall do that! Whatever the obstacle... I shall overcome it
by all means! And finally after meditating on God for 25 years... at the age of
37 I finally came face-to-face with God Almighty.
I had reached the end goal of cosmic life. I had reached the Mount Everest of
my spiritual pursuit. I had in fact transcended all the boundaries of earthly
domain. I had become a living Ramakrishna Paramahamsa. I had ultimately realized
God within this life. I had reached the 8.4 millionth manifestation.
was to be my last life... I can only attain salvation as the end of this manifested
life! Looking back I find that the purpose in life I had fixed early in life was
the starting point. Most people keep on postponing fixing the purpose of their
life. And when comes the time to depart... they only drop a tear or two in anguish.
For none knows what our next manifestation would be!
as a human being must be lived to the hilt. That decision is to be made by us
alone. Our parents, teachers and well wishers can only act as guides in the journey
of life. The purpose of our life is to be fixed by us alone. We just cannot leave
things to chance. The time for that may never come.
Everything in the cosmos is justly ordered. If Stephen Hawking in his book, "a
brief history of time" has expressed that the system of God is disordered
at some stage... he is mysteriously wrong. This poor scientist fails to recognize
that spirituality starts from the point where science ends. To measure spirituality
from the yardstick of science has never been possible and shall never be.
the absolute truth that everything in the cosmos is justly ordered... why not
bring order to our life. We definitely must fix a goal in life and never let ourselves
fall into the rut of purpose driven life.
god bless us!
