Who am I? Why am I here?

Mostly, I'm just curious to see people's answers. Whatever your belief system/religion, how do you view the "big picture"? Why do we exist? Why do you, personally, exist here on earth?

  • I think that we were always ment to love God and have fellowship with Him while taking care of all of His creation but due to sin we now also have to make a choice of whether we will do that or not. I believe that I am a child of God and that everyone has a purpose and God has a blessed plan for everyone but not everyone gets to fulfill their purpose or enjoy God's plan for their lives. I am here to learn and help others by teaching them what I've learned. I am here to dance for Him and to be His servant and messenger. I am here to fight for people and help them servive. I am here to be a wife and mother and take care of my family. And I know that there is more that God has planned for me.

  • I really feel like everyone is here for a purpose. Everyone has a gift God gives them to share with the world. I have discovered that my gift, is a huge compassion for the elderly in specific. Although I am not clear yet as to what I am supposed to do with that love and compassion, I am sure that in some way, I have touched a life or 2. And if I have, that feels like a purpose to me.

  • I have absolutely no clue. However, I figure if I live a good life, treat people and the earth with kindness and respect; then regardless of what happens and what the answer is to those questions it really won't matter.

  • I don't have all the answers, but I feel that God put me here to do something. To teach someone, to learn something, to be someone until the time comes for Him to take me to Heaven. Do I know what all those "somethings" are? Not a clue. But I am searching for the answers, and that's all I need.

  • I'm here because my parents had sex and the condom broke resulting in biological reproduction. My purpose is whatever I make it My parents raised me to be a strong, successful, independent woman and that's what I am. I made it my purpose to raise my children in the same manner and raise them to be important contributors to society.

  • I cannot remember where or what I was before choosing to be born into the physical world. I am here to use my gifts to the best of my ability to learn the lessons I came to learn and to the benefit of the larger community-the web we are all a part of-and the Earth that provides life, and to enjoy the gift of life in the physical world - part of it is simply to enjoy this marvelous gift.
