To Every Thing There Is A Purpose

oh yeah? do you guys think this is true?

and while I'm at it: how do you find yours?! Do you KNOW it when you have?

and even if it all went wrong
I'll stand before the lord of song
with nothing on my lips but hallelujah"

I think on a grand scale it must be true. But if I could figure out what my purpose is, I'd be really grateful. Right now I feel stuck in a moment that I can't get out of.

Good question, Carrie. I've been trying to figure that out forever.

Right now, my thoughts are everything that happens can be made to have a purpose.

Yeah, foray, I think along the same lines. It's hard sometimes to think in terms of "pre-determined" purpose to things -- I can't believe in it that way. I do believe, however, that EVERYTHING feeds the soil from which we grow our lives. And that sometimes, there is a meaning -- like a signal, a tap on the shoulder -- in small or unpleasant experiences that will reveal itself later. I'm a firm believer in intuition, too, or "the language of the universe" as Paolo Coelho put it in a great little grown-up fairy tale called The Alchemist. When the world tugs on our hearts -- a passion for music, a face we can't forget, an unexpected indignation -- I think that's God's purpose whispering (or shouting) to us. I've also learned the wisdom behind "Lead [your life] with your heart, manage with your mind." Many folks try to do it backwards, and live far away from their purpose and their joy (usually the same thing)...

(((((huuug)))) Think about the Grammys!

Yes,I am a firm believer in evrything having a purpose. Life is quirky like that. Of course, I'm an existentialist Christian (yea, it doesn't really make sense, but I like it), so it's inherent that I think there's a purpose. I don't think we can EVER figure out our purpose, not until we die.

Wow! That Alchemist is probably my favourite ever story, or fable. I probably read it once every year or two - i would highly recommend it.
