Why?

The biggest question of all: WHY?
WHY I was born?
WHY I’m here?
What is the purpose of my life?

Some people, like Beethoven, haven’t any problem with that.
But for most of us is not so easy to figure out WHY.

Some people don’t care. They spent their lives day by day existing – not knowing WHY.

I think we are all born for some reason. We have some mission to accomplish in this life.

I found this quote in “Man’s search for meaning” by V.E.Frankl:
Everyone has his mission in life; everyone must carry out a concrete assignment that demands fulfillment. Therein he can not be replaced, nor can his life be repeated. Thus, every ones task is unique as is his specific opportunity to implement it.

And I think that we all have a talent, a gift from God which we should use to make a difference – for better…

This what Richelle E.Goodrich say about it:
You are here to make a difference, to either improve the world or worsen it. And whether or not you consciously choose to, you will accomplish one or the other.

So we just have to figure out what is our purpose and try to accomplish our mission.

And this is from “The Rumi collection”:
It would be as if king sent you to a village on a specific mission. If you went and performed a hundred other tasks, but neglected to accomplish the task for which you were sent, it would be as though you have done nothing.

Shortly speaking ( Deborah Day ):
Your purpose is your WHY.

And if you know WHY, you will find HOW.

Thanks for visiting.

  1. Ha! I was just standing here in my kitchen asking myself the existential “why” question, when I turned on my tablet, clicked on my WordPress reader, and read this post. Excellent answer! And you quoted from Man’s Search for Meaning, one of my favorites!

  2. The “WHY” because of PARENTS,
    and,also, OF BEFORES
    The “TASK” UNKNOWN, until “THE END”
    all else just time “filling” chores.
    “WE” may have help in “INKLING”
    by that HOW “gift” of “PLACE”
    though much IS by OUR “NOTICES”
    “LANE’S” CHOICE “IN” HUMAN “RACE”.

  3. Why is the greatest question of all time. You are so right in saying that if you know your why you will find your how! Simon Sineks book, “Start with Why” has some great insight on this.

  4. I love this post! I believe it too, there is a purpose….Although this quote may not be completely related to “the purpose of life”, I thought I would share it anyway šŸ™‚
    There is a quote I love by Ralph Waldo Emerson: “To laugh often and much; To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; To earn the approbation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; To appreciate beauty; To find the best in others; To give of one’s self; To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; To have played and laughed with enthusiasm and sung with exultation; To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived ā€” This is to have succeeded”

  5. Love this. Rumi, as ever, captures it beautifully. Only we can do the task we are sent here to do. It can take time to find it out, but we find out all sorts of useful stuff to help us with our task as we take our wrong turns. It is this learning that will help us succeed in our one true task when we figure it out šŸ™‚
