I'm not sure how this fits in but, I've always heard discussions about the "Purpose of Life," with most saying we are to live to be happy. Now I understand happiness is something that is sought out and pursued by many a people, but what do you think about this opinion? Personally I believe we live for purpose; happy or unhappy doesn't directly matter.
We live because we are alive.
That aliveness is not due to the body but rather the body is due to aliveness.
Therein alone does happiness ever-shine.
Purpose only comes into play with thoughts and misidentifications. Then we can say our purpose is to know ourselves as that joyful aliveness, which is Consciousness itself.
Beyond that, I regard this world as a sandbox. Play and be kind, help and enjoy, but don’t take it too seriously. Sooner or later, you’ll have to leave it all behind.
