What is the purpose of life?

To have fun!! From an Atheist's perspective..Life is just a fortunate/unfortunate accident, but not that it has happened one should try to make the most out of it. And when I say most out of it, I mean having maximum fun and being most successful and all the scams. Success is a scam that rich people potray so that poor can work their life off for them and they can get more richer. I mean satisfaction of life, it can be with family or friends or something else. Personally, I work 8-10 hours for good money which I can spend to have fun!! I have no foolish ambitions of working 14 hours a day to become a CEO of some company and die. Because then I'll be remembered after I die but I technically I won't live😅.. And the reason I mentioned Atheist at the start is because I don't waste my valuable time and money after an imaginary man on the cloud so that my after life goes well. For me, there was nothing before life and there will be nothing after it, whatever it is, this is it Sounds very pessimistic and probably misleading to many, but that's what the purpose of life is for me😇


Indeed everything happened by chance. Sorry, but all evidence currently suggest it was all by chance. I do realize that most people want to believe a power behind every event as that sounds less scary and that's all God does for humanity, it is something on whom we can blame the unknown. Heck,when you got conceived in your mother's womb, the chance of exactly you being born was 1 in million which does sounds like a chance to me😅✌️

What most of us are after is: Work - Earn - Save throughout our life and then when it's time to enjoy, your body won't support you. What you earn should not be judged by others on basis of experience, field and skills. What matters is you should be happy with how much you're spending on the right things. You can have a fat seven digit income a month with almost no time or even your family to spend with, What's the point then?? Every now and then one must revisit the purpose of his life, are you really happy with what you're doing? We tend to move to big cities, go abroad and leave alone our old parents behind. How much are you spending on things that is not related to work or skill development? If your sole aim is to achieve a big fat pay package, showoff materialistic things, become rich? If so, you already don't have an AIM in life


Very sentimental S1. Which one of these is your purpose? Taking care of parents? Anything else?

Being wealthy not rich!


Rich dad poor dad will teach you how to make money.


Try some activities which gets your adrenaline pumping. Rock climbing, Kart racing, competitive sports, cheating on your partner, paintballs, getting chased by someone (most probably your partner) and so on. That's when you may start enjoying and having fun and not think about anything else. Cheers!


Wait, was that a typo?

OP right now... PURPOSELESSNESS ⚔️

Find the balance! Follow your heart while you also manage to keep your mind at peace. Travel, explore cultures, cuisine, music, landscapes! Keep the ones you love happy, sing it out, shake a leg, stay goofy. Most importantly, be kind to everyone you meet and spread light!


Shake a leg means to dance


To exist and live in the moment. We are similar to other animals. Our agenda is same as any other organism. Survive , Reproduce, Die. Try and dominate other organisms if you can.


Yup. Now it's not overt. We unknowingly do it.

It's something which when you will figure out ,you will be the happiest man on earth. It will give you inner peace, and the way of achieving that is through meditation.


Hence, the question...
