Reason for your existence


What is the reason of your existence if someone asked you that question, then what would be you answer? I have watched one video in which host was asking everybody at the level of university that “WHY ARE YOU HERE OR WHAT IS THE REASON OF YOUR EXISTENCE”, I see them mumbling up and they were answering like, ‘just for the sake of degree, some answered that following parent’s wish, some said, don’t have any idea, some made fun and said was out of my mind, some said because it’s necessary to study, some stayed silent because found no reason, that’s not the mistake of minorities, but majorities, because people have no idea what they actually are doing and why. What’s the purpose behind, what they will achieve, for saying they are career oriented but when it comes to orientation they don’t keep up their minds with a strong hold.

If someone asked you for one wish and said that whatever you will tell I will give you that or granted you with that, what do you imagine you would want out of life that you haven’t gotten yet? For many people, it would be self-improvement and knowledge, ultimate reason for your existence actually for those existence who believe to be the one great known person without an introduction. Newcounter knowledge is the backbone of society’s progress. Great thinkers such as Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Edison, Benjamin Franklin, Albert Einstein, and others’ quests for knowledge have led society to many of the marvels we enjoy today. Your quest for knowledge doesn’t have to be as Earth-changing as Einstein’s, but it can be an important part of your life, leading to a new job, better pay, a new hobby, or simply knowledge for knowledge’s sake, whatever is important to you as an end goal.

Every day life is littered with experiences and opportunities to learn from others, whether in a book we read, or a movie we watch, or even just a conversation with a friend. In these instances we spend the majority of our time discussing the history, appearance, or performance of the people who delivered the idea to us, and how they made us feel, which is the “gatekeeper” for how we absorb, if at all, what ideas they teach. We spend the majority of our time talking gossip about the messenger, and much less time about what we can learn from the messages, try to learn something new everyday, and try finding your purpose of existing.

We all have of course self awareness, a feeling of 'self', of being aware of ourselves and our surroundings, and the only clear view that we can have of the world is, naturally, our own. We see the world as a sequence of events that happen to us and around us. We of course, from our own perspective, are very much central to all these events. It is not therefore surprising that we each consider our own existence to be important, regardless as to the actual reality of the situation. Logic would dictate that if one of us was to cease to exist the world would carry on pretty much as it always has, apart from being missed by friends and family of course. But logic can be ignored when it suits us and the vast majority of us consider ourselves to be important to ' the great scheme of things' to some degree or other. Our egos are not keen to accept that in reality we may not be of any consequence to the vast universe in which we exist, or indeed to humanity as a whole. Our importance to family and friends is, naturally, accepted.

Throughout history there have been great people that have made sacrifices for the benefit of others, they had a cause and made it the reason for their existence, even sacrificing their lives for the sake of their cause. Perhaps they died content knowing that they had made a significant contribution to the advancement of mankind. Some would have believed that this was the only reason they were born, to do this great deed. They were sure they knew what was required of them by whichever God they happened to worship. They may be right, but what would have actually been achieved? A better life for those remaining, yes, for which all are grateful, but in 'the great scheme of things' merely a more comfortable existence for those that were going to exist anyway, (according to the 'plan') not a real change in the 'plan' itself, life goes on regardless, but towards what we do not know. Even the belief that we are 'heading somewhere' is entirely without substance, unless you believe in a 'plan' for reasons of faith.

I completely believe that there is a reason for our existence. Everyone on this planet has a purpose to be accomplished. Every one of us is here for a reason, for a purpose, for a new future. Without any reason for existence, no one would have ever survived. Our personal life ,our goals, our wishes, everything is for our existence. The day we lose the reason for our existence we would lose our life because there is no life without a reason. The reason for our existence is going to be different for each person. For me, the reason is so that we can make the world a better place for the young children that are now born into this world. We exist to make a positive impact in their lives so that they can enjoy a great future.
