For stone: life is to become jade.
For flower: life is to give delicious fruit.
For monkey: life is to reproduce healthier monkeys.
For human being: life is to thankfully carry forward an ever-advancing civilization.
A purposeless being is evidently less worthy than a stone.
All creatures reach their goal by instinct, human beings by education: physical, human and divine.
With maturity, through eternal education, human beings will know more about their life, their Creator and their bliss in reunion with God.
In reality, God creates man and He teaches man all things.
New Addition For This Post
All men have been created to carry forward an ever-advancing civilization. The Almighty beareth Me witness: To act like the beasts of the field is unworthy of man. Those virtues that befit his dignity are forbearance, mercy, compassion and loving-kindness towards all the peoples and kindreds of the earth.
(Baha’u’llah, Gleanings from the Writings of Baha’u’llah, p. 214)
