It is infinitely easier to get lost in the ebb and flow of life and forget who you are and what your purpose is. There are thousands of distractions that can easily push you along on different paths and ways of life. Amidst of all the confusion and mystery, the most important question that haunts an individual is what is his purpose?
Who are you? Why are you they way you are? Are you doing what you love and enjoy it? Have you found your life’s purpose and meaning? Are you happy and contented with who you are? These are some of the most important questions an individual has to ask himself.
Being you is not only a choice but an absolute necessity if you have to find that inner sanctum of your life where you can live in peace and certainty. Finding your true identity relieves you of all the unnecessary strife and struggle that you go through on a daily basis.
There is nothing more painful than going through life without a sense of purpose and meaning. Life is an unimaginably long and painful journey for the one who still has not figured out what he wants to do. Every moment is a painful reminder of his unknown identity; he is haunted by the strangeness of his daily experiences that are taking him nowhere.
The first and the most important question an individual has to ask himself is; who am I and what is my purpose here? Some of us might resist such grandeur questions that don’t give any immediate solutions to our problems. Only the one who has gone through life without asking these questions realizes the tremendous importance of getting to the core of your being and living from there.
Life is neither good nor bad, neither beautiful nor ugly, neither this nor that. Everything here is just the way it’s supposed to be. The only trouble is very few people are interested in life. They are interested in money, recognition, comfort, success but very rarely do they explore the fundamental of living.
Being you is a forceful assertion of your individuality. You are the unique signature that is imprinted on all your experiences. The more you know who you are, the easier it will be to understand all that is happening around you. A continuous and relentless pursuit of your purpose is what makes life a grand adventure. Succeeding or failing is simply a matter of statistics and opinion but living is much grander than all this.
Question, seek, argue, fight, understand, love, care, explore; the ultimate purpose of life is a quest for your grander self. Let people laugh at your ideals and question your ways. They have no understanding of the real you. Everything they know about you is just a point of view. Express yourself from the core of your being, let your individuality shine out amidst the darkness of mediocrity and ignorance. Don’t let that fire of uniqueness within you die. Your greatest gift is you and there is no experience grander than being you.
