What is the Purpose of Life?

There is no ultimate purpose to life. Your purpose is self-directed.


No afterlife

If we reject the notion of afterlife, or a “life after death” or the notion of an ‘immortal soul’ … then what?

What is the Purpose of Life?

What I dictate as my own purpose in life

To me it is simple: art and philosophy. Maybe entrepreneurship too.

De-program yourself

De-program from how you were raised. Challenge your beliefs and thinking. Challenge the tenants of your religion, challenge how your parents raised you, and the ideologies of your society, schools and teachers.

Stare directly at your pre-conceived notions and beliefs , and ask:

Do I really want to believe in this? Yes or no.

The first step.
