Purpose of life

I was just reading some advice: “relax and enjoy … when did you last have any fun? “I gazed out the window at a very still, grey day where the mist is slowly dissipating and thought yes, I can answer that question. It was last Sunday in the woods.
It was good to reminded of that time, the thought of which soon led to other reminiscences. But then came another thought; that I believe I’m on this earth for a purpose.
Well that thought carries with it a yearning to do something worthwhile.
No doubt we need that yearning in order to motivate us into doing whatever we are here to do but, how easily does it take over and hijack us into striving for all sorts of goals and ambitions of our own contriving that are nothing to do with our inherent purpose?
.

Maybe the relaxation and fun act as a kind of filter to help us sift the worthwhile purpose of life from the totally unnecessary worry and stress?

    Absolutely. Once we let go of the worry and stress, it becomes much easier to just “be.” When we’re in that state, all good happens and the purpose of our life just “is.”
