Purpose of Life’s Purpose

Start by undoing the underlying assumptions typically inherent in that question. Usually the assumption is that there is One "Life's Purpose." In addition, it is assumed that one's Life Purpose is "out there somewhere." Something predetermined.

How do you figure out your Life’s Purpose?

Start by undoing the underlying assumptions typically inherent in that question. Usually the assumption is that there is One “Life’s Purpose.” In addition, it is assumed that one’s Life Purpose is “out there somewhere.” Something predetermined.

That might be, however, it is certainly also true that we can have more than one Life Purpose. We can have many at a time, and even more importantly, we can CHOOSE what we wish those Life Purposes to be, and how many we would like to have. We can choose to hold onto these as long as it is Appropriate.

Another assumption is that a Life’s Purpose has to last a lifetime. It does not. One might accomplish it and move on to something else, or another one, or any number of options.

The Key to it all is breaking free from Assumption, developing discernment, and then applying this awareness to appropriateness. Using appropriateness as the root concept makes it all simple. Simply do what is appropriate to YOU, and appropriate in ALL Contexts. Appropriate according to what YOU want. A simplicity that will be consuming and fulfilling. Thus answering your other questions as well. Because the Application of this is the implementation of those.

"I admit to being an unusual person." - SS From a comment on his profile pic, since writing one's own bio is so difficult: “Beautiful and astounding. Kind of resembles an amazing character I know. Some call him the Weaver of the Unraveled, the Rekindler of Doused Fires, the Sandman of Endless Beaches, the Friend to the Friendless, the Harmonizer of Unsung Heros. And some even call him Syl.” - Na'Cher From age 10, on the day he literally exploded a light-bulb, Syl Sabastian’s acute life-long love affair with Understanding began. Since then his focus on, and love of Awareness, or more accurately his struggle with non-awareness, has never let-up. An intense reader in his youth, Syl absorbed over a book a day, including the classics read in chronological order, culminating in extensive science-fiction/fantasy/speculative reading. After transitioning to Applying and Living his philosophies, Appropriately, with Attunement the ever-present motivation and catalyst, it all morphed in time to an earnest propensity to write and communicate. Syl and His Heart have owned restaurants, stores, online businesses, and travelled the world, while implementing and enjoying their life-perspectives of which he writes so deeply. As Biella is so fond of saying, "and there's More..." "My life began, from earliest memory, with a peculiar precocious understanding of abstract concepts, a mystery which remains unexplained to any satisfaction. I feel I am traversing a circle back to my origin, except perhaps, now more aware of what I already knew." -  From: The Young Man's Story Syl is a great interview and an even better friend. A Philosopher-Writer focusing on the Application of a comprehensive Practical-Personal-Philosophy. Creator of: The Philosophy of Appropriateness and: An A+ Philosophy. Writings range considerably, from extensive psychological perspectives to fiction. All connecting in one way or another to a unique vision. A consistent coherency permeates Syl Sabastian's extensive variety. “Syl Sabastian is a Contemporary Philosopher and Writer, who exercises a glorious intellectual mind that is most admirable for its profundity and sharpness. Often offering multiple sides of an argument, he provokes self-introspection. His aim is to uncover Appropriateness, Awareness, Attention, Application, Attunement, and more, with a unique, high-level understanding of the profound intricacies that interlace these concepts.” - TJT & PDJ, Owners of the Gateway Gazette, Entrepreneurs, Writers, Moms. "My blog is my best bio." -SS  :) <3 “You fascinate me, you really do. I think of myself as a big deep thinker... your writing, at least what I think I understand it to be about, sounds like the basis for either a belief-system or a wonderful self-help process. Am I anywhere near the mark? I think your writing, even about yourself, is amazing by the way. Quite poetic.” - Andrew Reeves, Author, Screenwriter, Poet, Creator of The Empty World, The Voodoo Doll, Claire, The Dictionary of Stupid, and more.

    Life’s purpose really is dynamic, from time to time it can change or improve. But what’s important is that you strive to live your purpose. When all else seem to fall apart, when you feel unworthy and useless, when you feel like you’ve got nowhere to go and there’s nothing you can do, you should remind your self of the life’s purpose you’ve set, it will serve as your map to your destination no matter how many trials misled you along the way. Many times we feel like we’re not serving our purpose and that’s because we are human beings, distracted by nature. But we are also human being who does not get contented easily, if we feel like we are taking the wrong road and living a purpose which is not in accordance to our hearts’ desire, we will look for something to work on that shall satisfy our desire. What matters is we never lose a purpose, because people who do, suffer with identity crisis. If you run out of purpose today, go back to your woldest dreams when you were young and start working on it

    Everyone has a purpose in this world. It may be different but it all comes to one point; helping others. You can be a speaker for those who can’t tell what they want to, and be the ears of someone who has a lot to tell. Your purpose is important so keep on inspiring others
