Our Primary Purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can’t help them, at least don’t hurt them.
Our Primary Purpose – How wonderfully put by the Dalai Lama
This is more of a natural law than a religion. We all grow up with a different set of beliefs and generally we grow up speaking a different language. As we grow up, we question and seek answers outside of what we have been taught.
There is a difference to having been taught something by others telling you, this is how things are compared to researching and learning for yourself. There is much more depth and reward to having grown by your own questioning.
No matter what our upbringing, there are certain things that resonate within each and every one of us. Do you not find it amazing how we can know something as profound as this yet we have grown up completely different from each other?
There are certain things we know without a shadow of a doubt to be true. What the Dalai Lama has said above, about our primary purpose, is just one of these things. There are many more!
In closing, continue to question, continue to learn and trust where you have placed yourself in your life. Treat others as best as you can and ensure that your goodness is not taken advantage of!
