To enjoy life and search for the purpose of life

Yesterday I was at the panel discussion with prof. Jan Rak about quantum physics and one of the auditorium question was: “what is the purpose of life?”. His answer was elegant :). He said: “ to enjoy life and search for the purpose of life”. That second part is something I have realized over the years. We all are ever changing process therefore thinking that we will arrive one day and say, “yes, I have found it, I am done” is just an illusion. I was not the same person yesterday as I am now. And I wont be the same person tomorrow. So lets stop looking for some holy grail grand arrival that will make you happy for the eternity and beyond and rather enjoy the process of never ending discovery.

    Exactly. This rang the bell for me as well. All my life I have felt this urge to discover the meaning of life, the purpose of all of this. And at the same time, also the frustration of not getting the answers.
    Once you realize you will not get the answers in this life, nor is it the reason you are here, you can calm yourself and enjoy whatever you are doing more.
    I guess being dumb and uninformed is just an integral part of our lives :).

      It is simply about the discovery process. Internally we just continuously force ourselves to arrive, but arriving is an illusion. It is so refreshing to realize that.
