there is no purpose in life...
the one that was set by God, for you to uncover...
one that if not followed, will doom you.
God is not that harsh and masochistic.
the purpose of life is to find your Joy.
to follow your Bliss.
this will lead you to what you need to do in life.
if your Joy changes,
then a new Purpose in life has awakened.
in summary, the Purpose and Meaning of Life ultimately relies on you.
the above premise was discussed by Neale Donald Walshe, author of A Conversation with God. (also discussed in the film, The Secret)
for a person who has sought the Purpose and Meaning of Life for so long,
i can now rest and end my search.
