Tonight's question is : What is my purpose?

HA! Well a better question would be: What is the purpose of the previous question? That isn't a joke either, we are so obsessed with validating our lives that we have managed to convince ourselves that we have a purpose and must figure it out. Why though? Let's say, for the sake of argument, that we do each have a purpose, why bother asking what it is? You cannot change what it is, and there is little point to living your life to the fullest if you know you only have one thing to do in life. I don't think we each have an individual purpose in life, why? Because the idea just seems silly to me, why do we feel this constant need to prove we exist by having a goal we do not know or how to achieve it? "Why are we here?" Does it matter? No, not really as you can't do anything about it anyways.

"What about God? He gives me purpose." Well that's all fine and good, but even if God is in the picture I fail to see how that gives us purpose as individuals, even if he does "know my name and every thought" If your purpose is to serve God and tell the world about him, then are you really any different than a slave? Sure, you might be happy doing it but it seems like a bad deal to me...You can't change your future as God can see knows all, so if you are DESTINED to become a christian, and that is your purpose, do you believe out of choice? Or is it just an elaborate plan to make you think you do. I'd rather avoid all that to be honest as the thought isn't too pleasant. I don't think we should bother with it and live our lives how we want, and if by CHOICE you decide to live your life for Christ, then good for you, but I wouldn't call it destiny and be happy with it...

if there was one thing about life I could agree on is from a quote by Nietzsche:

- Art is the proper task of life

Well it's late and I hope I haven't offended anybody XD my mind is tired but it's definitely interesting to just write out thoughts...

My First Attempt

Well, I never though I'd come to this. I never really understood why having a blog was so popular but nonetheless am going to try and write out some of my thoughts without sounding like an idiot.

This will serve as a place for me to write down my thoughts regarding several topics in hope of finding answers, and maybe getting others to ask themselves questions as well. I find most people are able to somehow manage getting through life without really stopping and thinking, and by thinking I mean more than whether or not "some guy or girl likes me" or what they plan to do with their lives. Heck, I also don't mean something as shallow as the people who spend all their time wondering what their "purpose" is or wondering about the existence of God. Such questions are easily answered surprisingly, the problem is that people don't often want to hear the answers. Mostly because the answer can simply be broken down into an opinion, and as we all know, an opinion holds little to no validity at all right? Well I suppose that's true and I certainly don't think I know all the answers, but I have strong opinions, and if you have an argument against mine then I ask you to please tell me about it! I am not looking for debates, but for dialect, a way for people to discuss where the goal isn't to convince everybody that you're either right or wrong but so we can all come to our own conclusions with as much information as possible...

So you see, I love to write, but never really knew how to go about it, this seems like an interesting way and am excited to see what will become of it. In my next post I'll probably be ranting about the questions regarding ones purpose since they've come up in my life time and time again recently it seems. I hope I haven't bored you or I've failed already :P I'll begin writing the next one immediately!
