    The purpose of life is to entertain Mr God.

    Somewhat relevant:

    >If you might be living in a simulation then all else equal you should care less about others, live more for today, make your world look more likely to become rich, expect to and try more to participate in pivotal events, be more entertaining and praiseworthy, and keep the famous people around you happier and more interested in you.

    >In sum, if your descendants might make simulations of lives like yours, then you might be living in a simulation. And while you probably cannot learn much detail about the specific reasons for and nature of the simulation you live in, you can draw general conclusions by making analogies to the types and reasons of simulations today. If you might be living in a simulation then all else equal it seems that you should care less about others, live more for today, make your world look likely to become eventually rich, expect to and try to participate in pivotal events, be entertaining and praiseworthy, and keep the famous people around you happy and interested in you.

    There really isn't any predetermined purpose in life.

    Mr.God sent his word to us for you to read it and come to the conclusion of what he wants from you yourself.

    Find your direction and purpose in life by reading, be it philosophy or religion, just read and come to conclusions by thinking on the things you read. Do what your rational mind tells you is right after reflecting on the things you read.

      This is the problem, the more and more I study religion or read ideology, the less purposeful life seems to be

    I found that trusting the wisdom of who I was as a child, and trying to achieve my childhood dreams has given me a good many things I want to do.
    >How do I know what God wants me to do?
    Ask, and try to sense in your heart what love wants.
    >How do I know my purpose?
    Find what makes you happy, or you think is meaningful to do.

    Your life doesnt need direction. Its a choice. A man chooses a slave obeys.
    Dont feel bad for not conforming. Its alright.

      What about all the people who are born in situations where they have no choice?

      If you look at accounts of people who have NDEs or pre-birth memories/past life memories it's clear life has a purpose because we are all being constantly guided by spirit "mentors" and there is a goal for each life based on karmas and stuff you have to learn.

      Just looking at the way this simulation is designed, it's very clear there is a purpose to it, however exactly what that is I still need to figure out.
      I've been pondering lately where do souls come from, and what is the purpose to create souls. Don't you wonder where all these new souls are coming from? And why we all need to go through this constant reincarnation process? Learning the same things each of us? For what?? It's driving me crazy.

        Maybe some have a definite pourpouse and maybe some don't why are you assuming that having the same circumstances equal justice.

    You don't, but the crisis you're in is the first sign that you're sentient.
    It's difficult to describe, but you're going to go on an adventure of searching/finding/realizing and searching again until you come to the ultimate realization that everything you want is here, nothing was hidden, and the 'price' you pay for having a soul is wondering "why?".
    You win when you no longer wonder why. And at the moment it strikes you that greatest gift you were given is the ability to make your own reason you will burst out in laughter at how perfect it all is/was.
    Anywho -- goodluck on your journey.

    What do you enjoy? What are you good at, love to speak on, or learn about? What would you think you might enjoy, visualize yourself doing it, how does it make you feel? Write a list of all your answers and over time rate the top 5 in order of importance to you, and your purpose or passion for life is revealed in the combination of the top 3-5 things from your answers.

    Are you by chance lonely and poor? The reason might be that you were a monk (or nun) in a past life and made a vow of poverty and chastity to the pretender YHWH, who unfairly uses these vows to hold you down.

    I think God has a plan for everyone. It can be difficult to know what that plan is because many of us don't know how to communicate well with God.

    I think the first step is to establish a relationship with God. Pray to Him and ask him to help you find your purpose. I think you must WANT to be a good person, to be apart of God, and to serve God. You might also try to remain in a silent room and simply listen for half an hour for God's words after you pray. I've heard God communicates in ways that resonate with people. So the messages might not be words in your head, it could be numbers, signs, events, dreams etc. But I believe that the message you will get will be one that you know in your heart and soul is the truth and that you will believe.

    But for all of this to work, you must want to have a relationship, pray, be open to messaging, and to also believe in God and that he loves you and will give you what you want.

    I don't know if this is true but it is what I believe. God bless you, I hope you find God soon, and I hope you find purpose and peace. I pray for the same for everyone in this thread also.

    Amen.

    Find what you love, and then don't do that. Instead go to trade school for a vocation in demand. Get trained, get good, get paid. And stop worrying about gay things like "What is my purpose?"

    Unironically, learn to relax your body and love the present moment. Release all your ideas of who you think you are and fall in love with life. That is your purpose. However, you won't ever achieve this because you'll just be a typical LULZ edgelord homosexual and be like, "Loves not real, cuck!" Anyway, the answer to life is love. It's been there the whole time, you just have yet to open your heart yet and see the synchronicities of the universe.

    If you notice something that should or must be done, then do it. it can be an everyday random occurrence, such as you notice someone dropping their wallet and you returning it to them, or something long standing that pretty much no one has done anything about, such as the homeless guy on the corner that everyone ignores, handing him 20 bucks will help him. if you see a piece of litter on the ground, picking it up and throwing it in the garbage can. it doesn't matter what it is that you do to help. you can attempt to move mountains, or you can attempt to move ant hills, just so long as when you notice something that should or must be done, you heed the call. do not think to yourself "somebody else's problem" or "someone else already has that covered". there is no greater purpose than making the world a better place. it doesn't matter how small your actions are, because in the end, they are all adding towards achieving that goal of a better tomorrow.

    Study NDEs anon, there you will find all the answers, I promise.

    Of course, nothing, and I do mean NOTHING, gets normies and NPCs more uncomfortable and/or riled up than the idea that near-death experiences are ACTUALLY real, and that there is good reason to think that they are and that we should take them seriously.

    Here is an extremely persuasive argument for why near-death experiences (NDEs) are real:

    It makes a huge deal about the fact that near-death experiencers (NDErs) are representative of the population as a whole, and that when people go deep into the NDE, they all become convinced. As this article points out:

    https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/mysteries-consciousness/202204/does-afterlife-obviously-exist

    >"Statistics collected ... show that the "deeper" the NDE ... the greater the percentage of those who come away certain of the existence of the afterlife. Among those with the deepest experiences ... 100 percent came away agreeing with the statement, "An afterlife definitely exists"."

    Since NDErs are representative of the population as a whole, and they are all convinced, then 100% of the population become convinced that there is an afterlife when they have a sufficiently deep NDE themselves. And so would you, me, or anyone, including the most dogmatic atheists and skeptics, because it is VASTLY more self-evidently real than this puny little experience of life on Earth we have now. When you dream and wake up, you immediately realize that life is more real than your dream. When you have an NDE, the same thing is happening, but on a higher level, as you immediately realize that life is the deep, deep dream and the NDE world is the real world.

    Needless to say, even physicians, neuroscientists, and psychiatrists are convinced by their NDEs.

      Read near-death experience (NDE) accounts and basically all you can about NDEs. Books, YouTube-videos, articles, everything. They will make you realize that there is an afterlife, that there is meaning to life, and that near-death experiencers (NDErs) say that the primary purpose here is to learn to love everyone and everything, no matter what. That it does not matter so much what kind of things we do, but whether we do them with no strings attached, and summon that kindness, love, and compassion on the inside of our own minds as we do it. So the meaning of life then, according to NDErs, is the small things. Whether it is helping someone with their homework, cooking dinner for our family, cleaning the bathroom, or picking up trash from the ground. Whatever it is, if we do it with love, then that is so huge on the other side, it is amazingly huge. So life is like a game where the goal is to summon as much kindness, love, compassion, and generosity as we possibly can squeeze out of our intentions. Which admittedly is definitely easier said than done!

      You are playing life on a higher difficulty anon. We are here to learn to shine with love and kindness _in a world where it is undeniably hard to do so_! So are you up for the challenge? You can do it anon. Show us you can do it.

      So sure, suicide shoots you directly to heaven and infinite bliss. But at the same time, you were there when choosing to come here. Suicide is therefore like turning off the Silent Hill video game and going out in the sun and playing with your friends. Which is totally fine! But it's not beating and 100%-ing the game, which is to live until death takes you, and being kind and loving all the time along the way.
