THE PURPOSE IN LIFE

Is our life purpose to serve our self?  Is the measure of success how much we have or how “happy” we are?  What is “happy” anyway?  We spend our entire life chasing happiness and when we think we have finally found it we discover we still aren’t happy after all.  What if happiness is only found in service to others?  What if success is only possible when others benefit?  If we focus on our own wants, needs and desires is it truly possible to be happy?  Can we find and enjoy happiness at other’s expense or in spite of the condition of other people’s lives?  I don’t know–just asking.  DW 1/2/17.

  1. Happiness and purpose for us human eternal souls…attuned at one with the whole finding one’s role or part in the whole by way of Philippians chapter 2

    being of one mind in christ, having the same love, being united in spirit and purpose, in humility consider others more important than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others.

    As a bonus..believing that the shed blood of Jesus will eventually redeem all..even the demons a la reincarnation..as taught by some early church fathers..SUCH as origen
