Life Meaning Vs Life Purpose


Posted on July 3, 2020


Life Meaning Vs Life Purpose

Life meaning is something you create, Life purpose is something you fulfill

Life meaning is of the mind – it’s a philosophy, idea or belief we ascribe to our lives. It’s subjective. It’s something you create.

Life purpose is innate –  it’s “programmed” into everything at a core level. It’s objective. It’s something you fulfill.

Again, to clarify:

Meaning is subjective. It comes from the mind. It is dependent on your personal tastes, desires, goals, and dreams.

Purpose, on the other hand, is from Spirit. It is programmed into us. It is within our very cells. It is written into each and every destiny.

So … what is the meaning of life? To put it simply, meaning itself is very personal and varied. It’s something that emerges from your soul as a deep calling.

For one person, their meaning in life may be to raise kids, for another, their meaning may be to create a charity, breed horses, become a world-renown artist, live off the grid, write a book, teach others, meditate deeply, travel the world, and so on.

Your meaning can be fixed or it can change.

Ultimately, your core essence (your heart and soul) will know your true meaning in life.

In order to find your meaning, you’ll need to do some soul-searching. You’ll need to understand yourself, your gifts and weaknesses, your passions, and your interests.

 This is an exciting process that can also be frustrating and disheartening if the voice of your soul is getting drowned out by the stress of daily life.

As I mentioned above, the purpose of life is more objective.

In other words, it’s not something we have to create or find. Instead, it’s something we realize or tune into.

Because it’s already there, because it’s already intrinsic and innate to who you are, there’s no need to go chasing anything.

Personally, I believe that our purpose in life is to mature on ALL levels: the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. 
The spiritual awakening process is an expression of that maturation process: our souls are expanding and growing just like the galaxies. And like pregnancy or childbirth, this growth can be a painful process. But it’s part of life’s purpose.

As professor of cultural anthropology and religious studies, Bonnie Glass-Coffin wrote,

As I have come to realize through my life’s journey, the purpose of our human embodiment is, actually, to grow a soul. Like the making of a body during nine months of gestation, soul-making is also a process. For, although we are born with it, our soul continues to develop with every life experience. Our sufferings are simply the secretions that add to its luster—like a pearl inside an oyster. Making soul is the process of a lifetime, or several lifetimes. Mystics, saints, and shamans of ages past and of today, from places far and near, refer to this eternal sojourn in many ways, yet whatever terms are used implies a conscious engagement with our true potential as divine partners in creation. This is what it means to “grow a soul.” This is what it means to commune with our essential nature.

On a metaphysical level, the question can be asked, “What are we maturing toward?” What is the point of all this hassle?

This is a complex topic, but in a nutshell, our metaphysical purpose is to unite with Life/Spirit, to become one with the Divine. Ancient spiritual traditions all throughout the world have agreed and referred to this by many names: Enlightenment, Illumination, Self-Realization, Heaven, Oneness, Nirvana, Bliss, Wholeness, Moksha, non-dual awareness, Buddhahood, and so on. 

How do we get there?

There’s  a multitude of spiritual and religious paths that will suit you based on your mental/emotional/spiritual level of maturity. 

Meditation is a common and recommended path. Inner work is another powerful practice .
It is a non-dogmatic practice that can be integrated into any belief system. The healing and inner transformation they produce is quite amazing.


To find your meaning in life, you need to learn you need to learn how to find yourself.
