One great question underlies our experience, whether we think about it or not: what is the purpose of life? From the moment of birth, every human being wants happiness and does not want suffering.

Therefore, it is important to discover what will bring about the greatest degree of happiness. ~Dalai Lama

Your inner purpose is to awaken. It is as simple as that. You share that purpose with every other person on the planet – because it is the purpose of humanity. ~Eckhart Tolle

Many people who are going through the early stages of the awakening process are no longer certain what their outer purpose is. What drives the world no longer drives them. Seeing the madness of our civilization so clearly, they feel somewhat alienated from the culture around them. Some feel that they inhabit a no-man’s-land between two worlds. They are no longer run by the ego. Yet, the arising awareness has not become fully integrated into their lives. Inner and outer purpose have not merged. ~Eckhart Tolle

Some people are called upon to do great things externally in this world by creating some new structure that reflects their awakening consciousness. Other people are not called to go out into the world and create great big things externally. Their purpose is to let consciousness flow into whatever they do – to do everything in a sacred manner. ~Eckhart Tolle

The primary purpose of life is in being in the NOW. ~Eckhart Tolle

To awaken within the dream is our purpose now. When we are awake within the dream, the ego-created earth-drama comes to an end, and a more benign and wondrous dream arises. ~Eckhart Tolle

At the intersection where your gifts, talents, and abilities meet a human need; therein you will discover your purpose.~Aristotle
