Our Human Purpose

The purpose of humans on Earth is a complex and philosophical question that has been contemplated throughout history. Different perspectives offer different interpretations of human purpose. I feel we could all recognize that those below, feel familiar and might be accepted by many:

Fulfillment and Happiness

Some believe that the purpose of humans is to seek personal fulfillment and happiness, cultivating meaningful relationships, pursuing passions, and experiencing joy in life.

Spiritual Growth and Connection

Others emphasize spiritual growth, suggesting that humans are here to develop a deeper connection with a higher power or to explore their spiritual nature.

Contribution and Service

Many believe that the purpose of humans is to contribute positively to society and make a difference in the lives of others through acts of kindness, service, and compassion.

Self-Actualization and Potential

Some argue that humans are meant to strive for self-actualization, to reach their highest potential, and to continuously learn, grow, and evolve as individuals.

Stewardship of the Earth

Another perspective is that humans have a responsibility to protect and care for the planet, serving as stewards of the environment and ensuring its preservation for future generations.

Ultimately, the purpose of humans on Earth may vary depending on personal beliefs, cultural backgrounds, and individual journeys. It is a profound and deeply personal question that each person must explore and define for themselves.

I personally feel that we could embody all of these aspects and become our ultimate selves on this planet, growing and creating beauty all around us, in peace and connection with ourselves and our neighbors, and with love and gratitude towards the earth. Wouldn't that be a magnificent world?
