This is the purpose of the moment

Can’t we just live? Is it important to disconnect ourselves from moments just because they’re over?

Much of what humans do apart from engaging in a path that gets them material sustainability is inevitably figuring out the purpose of their own existence. Why are we here? And what are we here for? Humans have almost never figured out the purpose in life when it’s much easier than one ideates. We find it an instinctual responsibility in ourselves to be better than nature because we can think, express, comprehend and put stuff into action, but the truth is that nature is everywhere and it’s hardwired in a process that gets the purpose in life even though their definition is relatively less flexible than ours. It’s frustratingly ironic that the “more” we strive to become by mocking what nature can’t do, we’re getting more and more unnatural and artless in our daily lives. There are moments when we feel depressed and moments when we feel free, untroubled and compassionate at the same time, but those moments are so easily forgotten. Why? Because humans are exceptionally smart or at least that’s what they’re meant to be. Just because we know we have 24 hours in a day to accomplish different things and be productive, we’re driving ourselves mad while finding the purpose of life of the moment. The environment we live in is transparent enough for us to possess the purpose of life. We’re so overwhelmed by our realities that we’re forgetting that in our purest sense of self, we’re a part of nature, just like those tall trees that are being cut down every day, just like those butterflies trotting from flower to flower sucking in that sully air, and just like all those small and huge pieces of nature that we have left behind. And we should derive the way nature lives as the purpose of life because the purpose of life is to just live in the moment, wherever you are.

Just like the ocean, we have a profound connection with our roots, even though they’re sunk in complete darkness and isolation. Just like the plant that grows by oneself to become big and strong that it happens to contribute to the Earth, we have to also become and keep moving forward in life and leave behind a meaningful mark on this beautiful world. Nature has a system and that system illustrates what one needs to do to be healthy, survive and grow. The slightest bit of ungratefulness can damage us, which is why we need to let nature spread its wings over our heads and teach us a few meaningful lessons.
