Purpose to live - Nishan Karki

"The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experiences." Ralph Waldo Emerson

One should have a purpose in life. Purpose makes our lives better and more reasonable. It helps us to focus on our goals.

A boy loved to climb trees. He often used to climb trees. He climbed trees for fun and also cut grass for his cattle. Whenever he climbed trees just for fun, something happened to him. When he climbed trees to cut grass for his cattle, nothing happened to him. He could not understand what was happening to him. Gradually, he came to know that when he climbed trees purposelessly and just for fun, he got harmed. He could not be satisfied with his work. But when he climbed trees to cut grass for his cattle, i.e., with some purpose, he was able to fulfil his work. Nothing happened to him. He did his work with ease.
From this story, we can conclude that life without a purpose is meaningless. We should have a purpose in life and live to fulfill it. In fact, the purpose of life is to live a life of purpose, as correctly said by a great thinker.
