But if a person has had the sense of the Call — the feeling that there’s an adventure for him — and if he doesn’t follow that, but remains in the society because it’s safe and secure, then life dries up. And then he comes to that condition in late middle age: he’s gotten to the top of the ladder, and found that it’s against the wrong wall.
Purpose is like breathing. You don’t have to try to live in it. You merely spend time discovering it. And the more you discover it, the more you realize every moment of your day is something beyond special.
I was browsing some blogs the other day and, to quote in their words exactly, i found questions on purpose posed. The following quote is from the blog “The Writer’s Bay”..The entry was called “Imperfect Circle:”
“So I think a more apt question would be, what is the meaning of your life? Well, lets take it back, break it down to its roots. Meaning. What does it mean to have meaning? How do you know something has meaning? So many people spend their entire lives trying make their lives have meaning. Perhaps the reason that so many people never find it is because they don’t know what hat meaning is. Perhaps we can pinpoint what the meaning of a thing is, if we first determine what it isn’t.”
