What is the purpose of life?

Good Question? (3)

Posted by Me Jul 30th, 2013 at 8:16PM

I like to answer again and again this most difficult question for people of all times. Each individual in each generation must try to answer this question for himself. Because, only human beings are created with the power of understanding to make investigation about known and unknown realities.
By intervals of about one thousand years, God is giving, through His Manifestation, a new purpose of life for man. The purpose for the individual today is to observe justice and for the human race is to establish a globally physical and spiritual civilization.
Luckily, people today can easily google wors such as “civilization, justice, Manifestation of God….” for more details.
Wishing you good luck.

Baha’u’llah says:

 “Know ye not that the Hand of God is over your hands, that His Decree transcendeth all your devices, that He is supreme over His servants, that He is equal to His Purpose, that He doth what He wisheth, that He shall not be asked of whatever He willeth, that He ordaineth what He pleaseth, that He is the Most Powerful, the Almighty? If ye believe this to be the truth, wherefore, then, will ye not cease from troubling and be at peace with yourselves?”

What is life for you?

Life is an unfathomable mystery for eternal discovery.

For me, I think that life is learning for discovery.

Learning to know what should be learned.

Any learning shows me how to live decently happy, I will continue with it. If it is really good for me, I try to apply more strictly. I see that this education gives happiness even to my children and grandchildren. It turns all my past suffering into complete bliss. Because it is inner and personal experience, so nobody can rob it from me. Now, with more experience of a septenarian, I want to share it to other people.

I have written a lot up here about this, not as life lessons, but merely as thought provoking opinions.

I think that a person without self-education cannot live truly as a human being. Learning opportunities are today available for all people.

Baha’u’llah says:

 “O ye learned of the world! Ye failed to seek Our presence, that ye might hearken unto the sweet melodies of the Spirit and perceive that which God in His bounty hath pleased to bestow upon Me. Verily, this grace hath now escaped you, did ye but know. Had ye sought Our presence, We would have imparted unto you a knowledge that would have rendered you independent of all else.”

Neither.

Today, we have the new job of “head hunter” searching talented people for private companies. Both hunter and prey are usually happy.

I think about human beings as of a higher station: noble children of the One TrueGod, regardless of all wordly qualifications. Each soul is a greater universe that loves and serves God. Nothing on earth is goal for hunting. All treasures on the Internet, in the world of creation, are only means for spiritual progress to the world of revelation.

This is the Day with thousands of new jobs to serve the sole purpose of attaining the good pleasure of God.

Baha’u’llah says:

 “The world will pass away, and so will all the things whereat your hearts rejoice, or wherein ye pride yourselves before men. Cleanse the mirrors of your hearts from the dross of the world and all that is therein, that they may reflect the resplendent light of God. This, indeed, shall enable you to dispense with all save God, and to attain unto the good pleasure of your Lord, the Most Bountiful, the All-Knowing, the All-Wise.”

The good pleasure of God.

Wealth cannot satisfy my spending to buy the moon.

Power cannot satisfy my conquering human hearts.

Fame cannot satisfy my desire for true love.

Entertainment cannot satisfy my wild imagination.

The universe cannot satisfy my journey into timeless and spaceless immensity….

Yes, nothing except the good pleasure of God.

He sends down His Messengers to tell Me clearly what I should do to please Him. When I do one time, He blesses me one thousand times.

Right here, you may see my moments of tremendous happiness.

Baha’u’llah says:

 “43. O MY FRIENDS! Walk ye in the ways of the good pleasure of the Friend, and know that His pleasure is in the pleasure of His creatures. That is: no man should enter the house of his friend save at his friend’s pleasure, nor lay hands upon his treasures nor prefer his own will to his friend’s, and in no wise seek an advantage over him. Ponder this, ye that have insight!”

Should women be leaders or should they leave the job to men?

Not men or women, but institutions.

Individual leadership was immature way of the past.

Today, in the Age of human maturity, we can learn to work together through

institutions, with new principles of administration and harmonious decision making by consultation.

The systematic functioning of three main elements of our world will create a spiritual civilization. The individual supports the institution, the institution guides the community, the community develops into the craddle for safety and happiness of the individual.

People who want to get a clear picture of this ideal society can watch the occurrences of 114 Baha’i Youth Conferences all over the world right now.

Youth and Pre-youth are learning to serve the world through institutions, and not through individual leaders.

Abdul-Baha says:

“He (Baha’u’llah) pronounced prejudice, whether religious, racial, patriotic, political, the destroyer of the body-politic. He said that man must recognize the oneness of humanity, for all in origin belong to the same household and all are servants of the same God. Therefore mankind must continue in the state of fellowship and love, emulating the institutions of God and turning away from satanic promptings, for the divine bestowals bring forth unity and agreement whereas satanic leadings induce hatred and war.”

Society does not manipulate. It serves us efficiently or inefficiently.

Some immature people among us manipulate and some others are manipulated.

Mature people are always independent.

This is the Age of human maturity. The more we take the journey on the Internet, with a new world vision, the clearer we will see our human society with its high glory.

It is exceptionally miraculous that we invent the Internet. Thanks to it we can see the map of our immense society with verities, varieties, discoveries that our ancestors could not imagine.

With good training and development of each individual mind, we will turn our society into a paradise far greater than those being told in the books of former writers.

Our paradise is a completely new and marvelous paradise.

Baha’u’llah says:

“Although God hath throughout His Book and in His holy and immortal Tablet warned them that deny and repudiate the revealed verses, and hath announced His grace unto them that accept them, yet behold the unnumbered cavils they raised against those verses which have been sent down from the new heaven of God’s eternal holiness! This, notwithstanding the fact that no eye hath beheld so great an outpouring of bounty, nor hath any ear heard of such a revelation of loving kindness.”

Me personally I don’t think so because when its time for them to go out into the world and live for themselves they will not make it cause they been sheltered their whole life

Parents should teach their children to conduct their lives independently. This may be achieved by the age of fifteen, when the child is spiritually mature. The children need to know the purpose of their lives and live according to their own thinking. Parents can continue to give assistance to those who develop themselves somewhat slowly, but the goal is to guide them to independence.

The most important thing is to teach them about the love and guidance of God.

They can stick only to this truth and take their own responsibilties before Him. Children may make mistakes, but we can rely on the protecting power of the Compassionate God.

My chidren are now giving this education and training to my grandchildren. At present they are all happy. I think that they will be happier to master their own lives.

Fortunately, this education is now avilable on the Internet for all people to study and apply.
