Pain Demands Purpose…

When I think about God deciding to create people, I can’t imagine that this universe is what he had in mind. I would assume that he created other beings with the desire for companionship… 

I really think that at the core purpose of our existence is to be happy, be filled with love, have meaningful relationships, share ideas, etc… be a society that you would want to live an eternity with… that there is no super deep purpose to our existence in a way… not that those aren’t excellent reasons… but some philosopher’s in a way may describe that as a meaningless life in a way… not one designed with some grand purpose in mind… that we have some specific job to do or accomplish… (Helping God and each other fight boredom is very important though, why would we want to exist if all we ever wanted to do was kill ourselves out of boredom or loneliness? Existence is a gift but could certainly be a curse as evident by many lives lived here on Earth. But I will talk about that later) 

We always talk about finding purpose… many people would find it hard to live not helping people or something of that nature… many don’t think happiness is meaningful enough…  

But I think we come to feel that way here, because pain demands a higher level of purpose… 

To feel pain, we want a good explanation why… Why be brought into a world to feel pain? Why must others experience pain? This world is pain. We feel pain in one way or another basically every day of our lives, some obviously more than others. It is at such a level that many people come to feel guilty when they feel well, because why should they feel happy when other people are suffering? 

The pain of this Universe demands such a higher level of purpose… which I think I have provided that purpose, if you read my post, “Why do bad things happen to good people?” You can find purpose, meaning, and contentment with your existence and the pain you experience here… you can be a hero in the history books of heaven… You will see a bigger picture that extends beyond the borders of this universe, a purpose that connects this world to the next… It will be easier to find a higher calling on earth… You will feel like you have enrolled in God’s Army… To exist here is to already have great purpose, you can then attain higher and higher levels of it, to find ways to help other people’s suffering… 

The feelings make it worth believing… to believe it for a month, you would never want to believe anything else… 

I always challenge people to give me a fair shot at believing, believe it for a week or a month… if it doesn’t change your life, you can always go back to what you previously believed… there is nothing to be lost by trying a thought on for size for a while… 

I didn’t know where this post was going to go… I just thought it was an interesting thought and perspective how Pain Demands Purpose… then I just started writing and let it fly.
