Do I need to define my purpose?

Ideapod – Do I need to define my purpose?

Short answer – yes.
Long answer is much longer and more nuanced.
I have written a lot on the nuanced complexity that seems to be the notion of free will – most recently

It seems we are very complex entities, living in an even more complex reality, and all any of us get to experience is a vastly simplified subconsciously created model of reality, that is our experiential reality.

It seems that we all come with many levels of contextually relevant purposes embodied in our culture and our genetics – both vastly complex beyond any possibility of detailed understanding, and able to be approximated.

It seems we each have the degrees of freedom that we do to choose in life.

Our choices seem to have degrees of influence (as they mix with prior systems and other choices).

Our choices, our purposes, matter, and they aren’t the only things that exist or influence.

We need wisdom, humility, compassion, etc.
