Short Poems on the Purpose of Life

Poems and Quotes on the meaning of life:

 

I did not come into the world
To prove anything.
I came into the world
To love everyone
And everything.

Sri Chinmoy (1)

The sole purpose of my life
Is to go back once more
To my peace-home-heart.

Life is given to each human being
For a very special purpose.
This secret each human being
Must discover for himself.

Sri Chinmoy (3)

The glowing purpose of your life
Is to run fast, faster, fastest
Towards the farthest and brightest Goal.

Sri Chinmoy (4)

My whole purpose in life
Is to be of service to mankind.
This I can do only
By offering inspiration
On the strength of my oneness.

If you think that
Life has a higher purpose,
Then you are fully ready
For the spiritual life.

Sri Chinmoy (6)

~~~

"The purpose of the animal life is the quest for individuality and separativity. The purpose of human life is the quest for unity, and not a sense of separativity. The purpose of divine life is the quest for perfection in the inner world, perfection in the outer world, perfection in God's entire creation. The purpose of the Supreme's Life is the quest for satisfaction, the satisfaction that nourishes the body-reality of His creation and the soul-reality of His ever-transcending Vision."
