Apart from asking ourselves the meaning of life, the next two most asked questions of ourselves are ‘What is my role in life? What am I doing here in this existence, in this time and place?
Here, again the answers vary from one person to the next. For some, their answers will be influenced by their religious belief. But what about the atheists? What do they think?
So, everyone has a different answer, and some don’t care one way or the other. They believe, ‘You life and you die. Period’. Who is right then?
I am afraid these are questions you can argue/debate until Kingdom comes and still no one would be the wiser.
Your role in life, the reason you are here, and the meaning you attach to life; only you will know the answers. No one else can tell you. We are all different, hence our meaning, our role, our reason for being here are all different. So are our answers.
The answers are out there, as well as within you. Seek and you find. While you search out there for answers, don’t forget to take time to look within you for answers too. The answers will not come easy, but they will come - when you are ready, and if you make the effort to look for them.
We are here only for a certain number of years, so, the earlier we start to look for answers, the better. Live your life to the fullest, and live it right. The answers could well be in there. Or the answers could be immaterial then.
Above all else, have faith in yourself, trust in yourself. Trust your intuition, listen to that tiny voice inside you and as you embarked on your journey of self-discovery and exploration, trust that your Higher Self will guide you along the way.
As long as one keeps searching, the answers will come. - Joan Baez
