How can someone figure out their purpose in life? #happiness #quora

I grappled with this question for years. Of course the answer is as simple as it’s difficult. And it’s only recently that I actually felt it. Below is an extract from Jack Kornfield’s book titled ‘After The Ecstasy, The Laundry’ that I mentioned last week. It’s a Zen story (koan) on what the purpose of life is.

Got it? There is no purpose, just life and you live it the best you can – doing good, helping people, nurturing your spirituality, just living. So yeah, this is it, just go do what the moment demands (and non doing is as valid as doing), whatever your heart/ soul call you to do and do it in the most awakened, conscious way with as much love as possible. This is what I think.
