I truthfully cannot say why, when, or how we were created; but I can say what the purpose of life is - and that is to simply find our way back home. Rather like the story of the 'Prodigal son', who left home to experience his own desires, and then realized what he was missing.

Peace & Love

Life has the purpose you give it. That is the beauty or curse that is free will.
If you want to become famous than your purpose in live is to become famous. If you want to become filthy rich, than your purpose in life is to become filthy rich.

I have observed... that the answer is held within the parent/child - husband/wife - man(woman)/God relationship. It is not the same for everyone, nor does the answer come from the actual experience. Each of us has purpose, which exists within our weakness not in our strengths. Our purpose grows inside relationships and is forged by our incompleteness .... there by revealing the legacy... each of us has been created for.

Hrmm. I would have thought there would be NO POINT in asking a question you already had your OWN answer to. Unless your only motive was to be able to "enlighten" everyone and their incorrect assumptions, and NOT to really hear what others believed?
Just food for thought.
