I thought and I thought, and I arrived upon an amazing conclusion- I have no idea. And more importantly, I don't think it is necessary to have a larger purpose in life always. Was talking to a colleague yesterday on this. He very apologetically told me that unlike everyone around us, he really does not have a larger dream or passion driving him. He just wants to enjoy his life while it lasts, and while he can. So he could be cutting promos for a channel(like he is currently doing) or simply leading the life of a wastrel, high on dope, living on his dad's money. Guess he has a point. Too often, we take life a bit too seriously, and get too tensed up about a 'higher purpose', 'THE GOAL' or other esoteric philosophies. But in all this, we totally neglect our present life. Our basic duty being making ourselves happy, every moment, every day, seems like a good enough philosophy to a 'humble farmer' like me!
I don't know about my 'purpose', but there's surely a lot of stuff that I want to do before the celestial tax man cometh to collect me! Make a movie, write a book, enter politics, teach, act in a play... but is any of this my 'true calling'- I have no clue! We'll cross the bridge when we reach it!
I totally agree with you on this!Live Today, Plan for Tomorow & Party Tonight!
