Thoughts on Purpose of Life

Sharing this not because I agree with the message but because it stimulates thinking.

Richard Dawkins too says (though in a different context): “Universe has no purpose”.

I think it is right to say that life has no purpose (i.e. we are not born with a purpose of our own).

However it is also true that finding a purpose and pursuing it is essential. Giving a meaning to our lives is our own responsibility.

I doubt if a whole life spent without purpose would be better than one spent in pursuit of a purpose. Maybe for a few it is, but definitely the whole mankind cannot go on that path. Especially those who are gifted with some talent which can benefit others…

Imagine if Newton, Edison, Tesla, Einstein, Darwin et al had spent their lives doing nothing, because they had no purpose…
