Journey to Jerusalem

“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 experience.”
― Eleanor Roosevelt

“The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.”
― Ralph Waldo Emerso,

“The mystery of human existence lies not in just staying alive, but in finding something to live for.”
― Fyodor Dostoyevsky,

“The human race is a monotonous affair. Most people spend the greatest part of their time working in order to live, and what little freedom remains so fills them with fear that they seek out any and every means to be rid of it.”
― Johann Wolfgang von Goethe,

Life, formed in a woman’s uterus  through the process of intercourse, This is the best time of your unmemorable existence. Being protected , growing  uninterrupted , to be free of the status quo,  free to family titles or  responsibilities,to thrive peacefully in an environment of no struggles whatsoever. Allow me to take you back to your beginning, when you were simply a sperm count that had to fight to exist (Google the struggle of conception), therefore your  being in  this woman’s womb is your silent  victory. Thank God you made it.

The challenge comes when you have to  tear your mothers body to  “live,”  those who walked before you will eagerly anticipate your loud cry as proof of life(this is you trying to catch your breath) congratulations  for  you’re second victory of macrocosm, yet somehow we than God for it and remain indebted to this woman (whose title changes to mother) for your existence.Then comes the  daunting task  to resonate with a supreme being, to fill that endless void that titles nor materialism cannot acquire .This task will take your entire existence in this flawed world to find. Humanity call it purpose.

Finding purpose has been the cause of the rise and fall of civilizations and  the struggle of the same to exist. It has justified the race struggles, social classes, the existence of monarchies and aristocracy moreover, the existence of religious institutions , which has taken the higher ground on the meaning and resolve of purpose. It is evident in the  in Muslim and Christians to the Mecca and Jerusalem, respectively. Finding purpose is every mans unspoken burden , like Paul the apostle would say ‘the thorn in our flesh,”.

Being a christian, I have found myself in this situation one too many times asking myself, what are you doing here? what is the meaning of all of this?(my past present and the unprecedented future) .Like everyone else ,I too was on a quest to discover who i am and why I am here .I read all literature that could quench my query but it was all in vain, the more I read the more  questions arose. Like all vain pursuit I grew weary and left that to the gods. This world is for the chosen few so I thought.

I am certain an that we are all on the same page regarding this.What is fascinating is that all that we are and do is in us to build or destroy, likewise our purpose.  You are the map to the Worlds best kept secret or the solution humanity has long awaited.There is that unique weaving  in you that you have to dig deep to retrieve it.However like all quest there is a twist; connecting will our creator will be an essential element. This will be the beginning of your Journey to Jerusalem, to where Christianity was birthed , where 12 men revolutionized it to a  world faith to a  following of millions today.

In Christ we divulge the meaning of life and purpose.

Joseph Prince-“Your supernatural ability does not come by praying more,fasting more.it comes from looking at Jesus.”

  1. Nice!!
    Been there… I tried looking within myself (like many books advice) to find my purpose but still felt like I wasn’t really getting anywhere. Then, I was reminded that when something is made/created/constructed/manufactured etc, its creator defines its purpose. The item in question doesn’t define its purpose. In other words, our purpose lies with the Lord. When we spend more time with Him, He reveals himself to us together with our purpose.
