Do you think that living life in the moment is the purpose of life or is it to forget the purpose of life?
Survey to anyone - What is your purpose in life (apart from family)? Do you think that life can be lived without finding some meaning to our activities? Do you think that living life in the moment is the purpose of life or is it to forget the purpose of life?
Added after comment from Colleen - Religion is usually a way for people to find the purpose of their life or meaning in life. Essentially all religions aim to direct their followers towards doing something purposeful and meaningful and I have lived my life without religion and found that I could not be happy. Even if I did not follow my religion well or know much about it, certain aspects of religion were important. But problem with using religion to give meaning to life is that religion can be highly misleading too!! And sometimes it is dangerous. And for purpose of making the conversation relevant to all who want to participate I am not sure if discussing religion would be a good idea.
But as suggested in one comment - spiritual practices can be the nomenclature used instead of religion and without specifying which religion u r following.
I thank the commentators on their intelligent conversations and suggestions.
