Purpose and Meaning

We live in a society that thrives on the promotion of the idea that we all have a purpose in life; this concept is instilled into our heads at a early age via t.v show, books, games, movies as well as the people around us. It is presented in a manner that makes it seem like there is this special little nook just waiting or even seeking us; that somehow some mysterious person is going to follow us and at some point say something like "You passed our test..you have been chosen..." or something along that line.

We have basically been trained from childhood that we are supposed to spend our lives searching for this mystical purpose that will somehow make our entire lives make sense and that from that point onward we are just going to be this awesome hero or something.

But..that doesn't work, does it? I mean it sounds very encouraging and nice but the sad fact is that millions of us, including myself, have fallen into that psychological trap. To be short, I do not think we have any purpose whatsoever rather we end up fulfilling many daily purposes. For example I used to work for an elderly neighbor, I was there for the "purpose" of doing things she couldn't do for herself such as laundry, cooking, cleaning, shopping and other tasks.  My "purpose" for that time, was to do specified tasks. Then I go home and I have other tasks to do. For example, if I am the only one home at the time, my "purpose" is to do a few things that might be needed.

What I am trying to convey is that the very idea of "purpose" is rather transitory and temporary. Purpose is not something grand or life-long but merely tasks that need to be done and if you happen to be around or, in many cases, hired to do that then -for that parcel of time- your "purpose" is to do whatever it is that needs to be done. In fact we have many "purposes" daily including parenting, yard work, pet care, student studies, etc.

I wasted much time being seduced by this erroneous lie that as I went along doing what I had to do that I would somehow discover or stumble upon something that told me "This is your destiny. This is the purpose for which you were personally born for". This is not to ever say that what you do is pointless, not at all, I am just saying that whatever you do is to fulfill a task, obligation or promise. If you happen to be around to do those things then that is what your "purpose" for the time being is, to do whatever you were told to do. Once that has been accomplished then you go on to other things that you need or wish to do.

This what I think kids should be taught in school, that the concept of "purpose" is nothing special or mystical, it simply means there are things to do and if you are willing, qualified and able to do them then go ahead and do them.  Forget the mysticism and fantasy, that is for movies and games, if you have that "to-do" list then your purpose for the day or at least the time being is to try to complete that list.

In short, purpose is a personal invention, a concept we attach to objects as well as to ourselves. It is not something that is waiting us or bestowed on us by some fairy or other-worldy thing, it is something we undertake and when that is done we go on to other things.

This is not to imply that what we do is unimportant, it just means we all do similar things, there are millions of people right now working in cubicles or behind desks, there are millions who are shuffling documents or giving shots to pets or serving meals in a cafe.....if you happen to be there and you are asked/told to do it then that is your purpose for the time being.

That's all there is to it. That is my view, nothing more.

You got most of it down by questioning? Some claims as losses will be true clue and path later.

Some give up despair is good, your prayers and cries are heard in heaven my skeptic believer.

But do you until you does back and the one who follows behind is you, i often walk there? Or walk and talk with the one you follow not good now but we grow. And true you patiently waits.

I tell that to the shadow.

I cant speak to you you or you to me me yet. We are same.

So milord "via t.v show, books, games, movies as well as the people around us. It is presented in a manner that makes it seem like there is this special little nook just waiting or even seeking us; that somehow some mysterious person is going to follow us and at some point say something like "You passed our test..you have been chosen..." or something along that line."

Keep writing, write your show game movie and word of mouth? Fiction you find now reality is because you write fiction not reality.

So write fiction? Be hero, then make me hero or villian who learns, praise saru and mods, and few believers you care for, and see your path shine.

Be a skeptic of skepticism and self

Lag of the sim explained

It is lag drink a tea or hum, smoke or sigh and kick back and see the ceiling and more.......more on see out later. No judgment just see. For all out here is you yourself. And all in you is what you toss out, pollution or bless, may i learn this for i know buy what is the step from here to there?

Meh i will jump up and down for fun skip steps? Use rails, or just on all fours climb crawl like a lazy child.

....

First part of your post is illusion, with greater knowldge problems seem greater, yet by seeing we improve more, as knowledge is a key and gift and others will be gifted, like love, faith, hope, so look for blessings too, i know i know, evolution first said danger danger death deaprair oh my,

calmate bro, use the head and others too, bless those and say yes some have hope and faith, we neee that, i will be given or i chose to bypass and let them have, i need em now so what i got and whay they got will get her done, so mu prophecy is personal now? Via art. Make your own or sing along.

ADAM AND THE AMETHYTS

Be a witch yo and dress in black. Fly in sky. You do this alrady dont you know. Outsider in gloom you fly all over see me and see them, i am same, with art and word do the craft as pure art.

ON THE SIM AGAIN AND HOW TO INCREASE PERFORMANCE TO REDUCE LAG

Then go wow I found one control of the hidden settings to the sim...

2nd part of quote above

You did your part so well so small with the elder. Do it again here. And hope one day we grow and turn to you as i and orhers feel the same, but us we head on face up to most social numbinbg routine and pretend to balm? They do balm their bond.

Do as you can when you can for self and those you can. The true work is belief alone, change your belief by tweak, reduce lag, and let the works come together as we do same as groups and fellows in the struggle.

SOS◇sisters of the struggle

oh vey

We we look to much.

You got it right and hope i learn your lesson. Let it be. Let it go. We hold on so hard to what we do think we have, afraid to fall far below, it hurts to hold on the bar, meh i let go, what land was one foot beloe, haha i can walk now, let go let go, see lost boys the movie lol...

 

Thank you.

Truth based in scripture too lol but from you and your heart.

I want this so bad, i know you are right and speak truth? 

My mantra again: lead me from unreality into reality

I do all i can i want to do more on the most optimal and efficent way, show me a few hacks or settings to the sim, who else will do it if not me and you?

And now we releaee reality 2.0 by Skeptic Ryu the Acceptor 

Like we are staging through gried in reverse from dead to alive

I am unsure what you are trying to say "I Hide Behind Words".  It is certainly not my meaning to imply that I have it all figured out because I don't. I simply have my own take on how I see life and the imaginary concepts that were set before us by our predecessors.

Life is life and it doesn't really need the sugar coatings of the self proclaimed "gurus" who act as if they hold the monopoly on "truth" and it is they who are the only ones qualified to dictate to you how to live live in order to be considered "right" or enlightened".

I don't know, maybe a little delusion is needed at times in order to help make this "cogs and gears" type life bearable...or perhaps not. Life is fleeting and ephemeral; it keeps going regardless of who lives and dies. We just try to find a way to make it somehow tolerable.
