What's the purpose of Life?

Successful parenting is founded on successful relationships between spouses and relatives. We must not neglect our spouse while we focus our attention on grooming our children to become the best they can be. Discuss relationship issues here.

Actually, I guess this is a question we all ponder one time or another. I remember I first thought of this question when I was in primary school, and I thought questions like am i real? why am i here, etc. Is life all about 生老病死?

For me, i found the purpose when I found my creator. For one to know what their purpose in life is, you look for the one who created life. Best selling author, Rick Warren, said this "If I handed you an invention you had never seen before, you wouldn't know its purpose, and the invention itself wouldn't be able to tell you either. Only the creator or the owner's manual could reveal its purpose."

The purpose driven life is one of those books I read over and over it and have been blessed by it. Worth a read if you are questioning about life in general. https://www.amazon.com/Purpose-Driven-L ... 031033750X

The universe did not come with a manual. Yet we are discovering stars and galaxies.
After all, the purpose of life is a journey in itself, not one ah ha moments

Perhaps Rick warren has not see this experiment. We dont always need a teacher, the self taught are the ones who change the world.

Life is a journey
We have no say on our start and our end (am excluding suicide)
We have to continue walking till the end

When I was young, there was more happiness than worries/sorrows
Now it is the reverse
