Or are you seeking out one? How does one know if they found it. I grew up believing(and still do) that everyones sole purpose on why they are here on earth is to find everlasting happiness. Does that make sense to anyone. I see why it is the most important thing. It is very hard toobtain, but once you have it, you lack for nothing. Any thoughts anybody wants to throw out there...???

I definately believe we all are here for a special purpose to fulfill, everyday are lives are effected by those around us whether it be good or bad. It is like the ripple effect each life touches another.

yes i will always be in that feeling.in this universe every creatures birth has one particular purpose ,what ever its may be for good thing or bad thing ,for good purpose or a bad purpose.birth is a god gift it must be satisfied by every creature .even ann animal has a purpose for its birth.remember one thing every creature will do even one good yhing in its life in direct or indirect way.and every creature in this universe will also do some bad things also in direct or indirect way. the main point our life is a god gift we have to satisfy that life .every birth has its own purpose we have notice that and we have to live our life as a never forgottable life .every greatman in this world will also same thing ,i may not be a greatman but i want to be a greatman thats why i an thinking in this way . if you want to think in the same manner of me try to live your life in your own way all the best for your life

I think everyone is here for a different reason, a different purpose. Every baby born has a destiny in life. My son has already healed my family after we lost a lot of family members. I know he has a lot more to do in life too.

Deep down inside, I do believe I have a purpose in life. However, I've had problems pinning down what that purpose is. I suppose that's part of life's journey though; we're all going through this, learning and growing along the way. I understand what you mean by our purpose being to find everlasting happiness; that truly makes sense. I guess all the learning and growing and ups and downs we experience lead to happiness? It would be nice, anyway.

Yes i believe that i have a purpose in my life and my purpose is ...let it be secret but i think all human being should get some purpose in his/her life and that is most important in his/her point of view towards life. Once a human being have some purposes in his/her life he/she will see a huge difference in the progress of life.

I think everyone will find their purpose when the moment comes.Happiness is not so hard to obtain once you figure out how to be more efficient and start to act,in my experience anyway. One purpose of mine was too defeat lazness and that has definitely brought happiness to my life.
