Posted February 17, 2016 from United States

Hello my dear friends. I have a few thought-provoking and soul-searching questions for you today? First of all do you remember the man in the picture below? Do you know that as human beings there are two greatest days in our lives-the day you were born and the day you knew why you were born? Do you know why you were born-in other words have you figured out your purpose in life? In a nutshell,what is in your hands?

Can you please share with us what you think your purpose in life is? You may be helping someone to figure out theirs so please fire on and share.

Dear Marie!

Again a mind boggling question from your side. Iam sure if people would halt for a while and think over what you asked, they will be perplexed in the kind of answers the mind and heart says.

To Understand the basic concept of birth and the reason of our birth,we need to broaden our vision beyond the limits of geographical borders, castes,creed, nations , gender and above all religion.

For me, Life is a divine gift bestowed upon us to evolve ourselves as human beings and to spread the word of love amongst one and all. To embrace each individual equally without discriminating or any apprehension and accept individuality as the nature. On larger terms, I stand on earth to speak of love and peace, to bring smile on everyone's face around me,whether family,friends, co workers, or anyone, to infuse in them enthusiasm of living with joy and most importantly humbly express myself to the world through my thoughts in form of writings. This is the gratitude I owe towards the creator, due to whom Im here, trying to work towards the goal of being born here.

Thanks

I do not remember much about the day I was born. But I am sure that it was the happiest day of my father's life; as he wanted a daughter. And he got one.

When I was 3-4 years old since then I strated asking this question to myself.

I had two question: Why I am here? What is my purpose of God to send me on this earth?

I am 37 years old & now I realized that I am here to live my life. Do positive & god deeds & spread a wave of positivity.

I now that pain, sufferings & poverty is prevalent on this earth, almost from the beginning of this world. But I will give my best to change & impact this world & humanity as much as I can.

No one & Nobody can stop me from it.

At least not now.

I am born with free will, heartful with the love of humanity & animals.

I cannot surrender or give up my all this. As it is my life & brings joy as well as happiness in my life & around me.

Who wants to live a miserable ?

Do you?

NO! No one!

Then why should I live in the miserability by giving up my utmost goal; just because few people things that I am abnormal.

I am recognizing the man in ths picture but can not recall his name?

Was he Socrates or some other philosopher or one of the ex-president of USA?

Can you unfold the mystery?

Hi Sahiba.

The man in the picture above is called Moses in the Bible story of Exodus. The staff  he is holding is called the Rod of God which Moses used in the name of Jesus to perform many miracles such as produce water from a rock, was transformed into a snake and back, and was used at the parting of the Red Sea.

However, the staff of God is just to show us that we all have something special in our hands to impact the whole.Moses was a simple sherpard boy with a staff he use in tendering his sheep but there was so much more that God wanted him to know about himself.Reason all the miracles were made using that staff.

In the same way,if we avail ourselves to God He can show us our purpose so that we can use it for the grreater good of all human kind.

If you will love to know more about this story read the Bible book of Exodus.

Thank you so much.

Hello Stella. I love the word "refining".It means you have discovered your purpose already.Bravo and of course that is a great milestone, for it is usually said that there are two greatest days in our lives.The day we were born and the day we knew why we were born. You are right on track. Thanks for sharing. Kuja

From a young age when I first began to realise that discrimination toward women and girls was so deeply engrained, I began to understand my purpose in life as being here to change this situation. I continue this many years later, ever deepening my understanding of how important it is for us to do this while we have the chance to be on earth together. I continue to focus my life on finding ways to end violence against women and girls, on supporting others to be brave and to believe in themselves, and to continue to be as courageous, outspoken and visionary as possible for the sake of the lives of girls and women both now and in the future,  for the sake of humanity, for the sake of our beautiful Earth, and toward a world with no war, no violence at all. I am aware of the short time that we have, and this makes me all the more determined. I am aware of how strong our collective voices are now, and this empowers me all the more to never give up, and to not accept only partial success. We are here to do this together. I know that I am here to do this, and am so thankful for all who know the same.

Thank you for this lovely post.

I will never forget Mike Murdock's book "The assignment" where he talks about the fact that we all have an assignment here on earth and our responsibility is to discover it and start working on it quickly.

He then goes on to give a few cues to help discover your purpose/ assignment and one of the things I recall is how necessary it is to pay attention to the things that make us very angry or sometimes even move us to tears. 

Its amazing but if something can move your emotions then it means that you care and if you care then maybe you are just the right person to do something about it because that may be were your heart and passion is.

Over the years, I have observed and seen several people make a difference and when you hear their story, it often times comes from a desire to change something. I am no different as I get really uncomfortable when I see young people and women/mothers who are complacent and lack the right information to get them to the next level. This may be in their career, business or personal life.

I am very passionate about helping people achieve their dreams and push forward in life. I pray that God keeps putting me in a position to help others in whatever way I can.

Accept warm greetings dear wemothers. Thanks a lot for this brilliant comment. I absolutely agree with Mike's book.We all have assignments in the form of great gifts and talents. But it is our responsibility to dig deeper and deeper into our gold mines and use what we have for the good of human kind. I hope God will guide and lead you through your purpose. Thanks again dear.
