Quick Definition: The purposes of one’s life of an average of 73 years (in the US) and what we accomplish with it.
According to Eckhart Tolle we have 2 major purposes in life:
- Inner Purpose – this is the spiritual journey to realize that happiness is now and that peace is attainable by all. Being at peace with the Source, and being present in the moment.
- Outer Purpose – making money, achieving a huge goal, building something great – all of these are external goals, which are important, but only come into perspective once it is aligned with our inner goals.
Egos and suffering can also create and destroy one’s outer purpose.
Usage: Have you figured out your life purpose?
