-Presence: complete alignment with the Now, leading to satisfaction, gratitude, and the end of suffering

What do you think of it?

that's a very deep going thread about who we are,what we want,what we wanna become...
i believe in personal growth and motivation,creating willpower within ourself,and certainly establishing self esteem through our determination,we must set goals=of what's important or un important,for some it's pleasure,for others it's avoiding pain,for others it's emotions,spirituality,finding out what's wrong within ourselves=the why's,why not's,wherefore,the how's,discovering our surroundings and how we react to it,and why and how we react..we should all follow our gut feeling and go for it,it's the life within ourselves,be it mental,bodily,spiritual...but it remains our personal life and nobody can take it away from us if we got the spirit to say==it's my life and i live it like I want to live it..if you love the life you live,you will live a life of love life is growing ==growth means==truth=we should see reality,and not go into false beliefs,because then we enter a labyrinth of worries..it can also mean love==like falling in love with someone,exploring each other,growing and feel good about it,not so easy and very often leading to questions like doubt,jealousy,suspicion,being faithful etc...i think a deeper sincere connection will withstand any pressure..it's the power of creating our own desires,lust,libido,dopamine and build on our motivations and disciplines in life,very often we are unable to make a strong decision which means we have to really go for what we ourselves believe in,we must sail our ship with the oars we got,it involves taking important decisions,courage and determination will lead us towards inner strenght,and i think finally our intelligence will determine our purpose of life

I recently did an online test about life's optimism,pessimism and realist attitudes..
i turned out to be be rather optimistic,but i think that's a false belief...when i enter a pensive state of mind i am thinking both ways,and in that state of mind i often find that it can be healthier to be a pessimist then an optimist,
because optimists put the ladder of life often too high==they expect too much of the good,and the world is a mixture,a counterbalance..of positive/negative influences..so..the purpose of life like the OP states here is investigating our own self,compare it to others,reflect on it...and then we will notice that no one can be 100% optimistic,pessimistic,realistic..i found out that optimism without a certain degree of pessimism or vice versa is a recipe to dissapointment in lfe,therefore i will never condemn any pessimist or optimist about the way they behave or see life...we are all unique in a way...and all of us strive for contentment,for some the way is harder,longer then for others..a good dose of pessimism may be important in overcoming psychological obstacles and achieving personal goals,but so is optimism a way to overcome obstacles...it's different for all of us and can be very personal according to our past,today or expectations for the future...

i am thinking about what is said in this video...life is a constant discovery of who we are,what we wanna become,
or what we never can?or will become due to circumstances?
that's why i think that the OP put a very good question here==the purpose of life...oh yes..
