The meaning of life is love & the purpose of my life

I am feeling so happy, blessed and grateful today! My thoughts have been so positive and my heart is so full. I just want to share something powerful I heard recently that I’ve come back to a couple times since then, including today in a conversation where someone told me ‘I hate my boring life. I’m wasting my days doing nothing’. My answer: You gotta love your life because it’s the only one you got. I tell myself this everyday (atleast I try to). I just couldn’t agree more with this. There is no point to waste time feeling sorry for yourself or regretting things or wishing for a different life. God gave you this life. It might be the only one you get. So love it with all your heart.

On another note, I was once asked by someone (a Professor I met in my moms home village in India) to describe the meaning of life with one word. I’ll never forget that day. I always felt that I learned something very deep and powerful that day. At that point I was quite young and not as connected to my thoughts as I am today. I could not for the life of me think of one word that would sum up the entire purpose of life. But as I’ve grown as a person and connected with myself, my thoughts, with God, I have experienced what I was told that day. The meaning of life (in one word) is love ❤

I am grateful for this experience/revelation. And now that I have had this experience, I want to be able to live this purpose (and give further meaning to it for my own life). Before my thoughts brought me here, I was really contemplating my life’s purpose today. I searched the word ‘purpose’ on to read all my past and present posts with this word in it to see if I had previously had any thoughts on my life’s purpose. This is what I put together: My purpose will be defined by who I am, what I want and what I love. I am a guider. I want to help other people. I want to make a difference. I want to spread positivity, peace, love and joy. I love to talk. I love to share myself. I am a loving, caring person who loves to help people in any way that I can.

And what I wrote previously as I was trying to define my ‘purpose’. ‘As I write this and reflect on my past and present, I am realizing that there are many ways to do what I am meant for. In order to give, and I am a giver (deep down), my own cup needs to be full. So that’s what I am going to focus on now and we’ll see where life takes me  Looking forward to the journey’. And I feel the exact same way today as I did when I wrote this originally. I only want to add that I wish to further heal myself by changing my thoughts. I am living through the struggles. I am helping myself through a terrible place. I want to figure things out, help myself and then share what I find to help others. Today, I haven’t found all the answers that I am looking for but the purpose is to keep trying. Live everyday with love and this bigger purpose that healing myself will be able to help me in turn contribute to healing this world. That’s my purpose. Thank you for reading 🙂
