Why Am I Alive — Finding Purpose in Life

                       Finding Your Life’s Purpose


We all ask “Why am I alive?” Some of us near obsess over the question. “Why am I alive?” How do I find purpose in life? What’s it all about?”

Questions do not provide answers. Yes, it’s one of life’s fun little quirks, the fact that asking questions will never provide answers. Asking questions simply provides more questions. Why am I alive? So I can be happy. But what’s the point in being happy? Cause it’s fun. Well, yes, but what’s the point in… .  Oh, shut up! Jeez. 

Asking the question won’t get you the answer. But there is one very powerful technique that will enable you to discover your purpose in life. In this article we’ll share the all powerful technique that will allow you to discover why you are alive and what your purpose in life is.



Stop questioning everything


Let us not question. Let us stop asking “Why am I alive.” Instead, let us look for the reason why we are alive. Let’s look logically at our request. Why am I alive? Well, if there is an all encompassing reason why we are alive, it logically must have been there since day one.  Now then, with this logical understanding I am able to deduce that, because your reason for being has always existed inside. You just need to see it.

In order to truly enjoy anything in life we need to be able to focus on it and give our full attention. That means ending the questions, and the only way to end the questions is to see the purpose in life, the reason why we are alive, so that we can understand our existence and enjoy it to the fullest.  You are alive right now and so long as you are alive your reason for being alive is still with you. When you cut away every single superfluous part of your life, you’ll be left with purpose.

Like a sculptor, you must chisel away every part of yourself that is not vital to living in order to see the inner most part of you.Thankfully, you don’t have to literally destroy or get rid of those unessential parts of your life, you just have to learn to let go of them for a moment so you can see the deepest part of you. And this, of course, happens to be exactly what meditation does for us.  By meditating we sculpt away all the fat of life. We come to our very blood and find the pulse that keeps us ticking.




To discover your life purpose right now. . .



To answer the question “Why Am I Alive” right now, simply do the following.

–          Get into a comfortable position lying, sitting or standing

–          Focus on your breath.

–          Coninue to focus on your breath and every time any thought arises simply allow the thought to fall silent and return to focussing on your breath.

–          Notice how your perception of yourself changes as you continue to meditate. Notice how certain wrong perceptions leave you (for instance, you  realise you are not a job, a relationship, a personality, you are essentially just energy).

–          Once you are completely relaxed (which may take anywhere from ten minutes to a few hours depending on how regularly you meditate and how relaxed you naturally are) allow yourself to voice a question silently “Why am I alive.”

–          Continue to focus on your breath whilst that question stirs inside you. Welcome any ideas that arise, be appreciative of them but continue to return your focus to your breath.

–          Your answer will arise. It may not come the first time you do this exercise. It might take many many times, but once you are able to silence all those thought and questions, you will come to see why you are alive.

Doing this exercise, you will no longer have to ask “why am I alive?” The answer to “why am I alive” will come to you.
