Three Themes of Purpose

Incidents in our lives will be the test of who we are and of our purpose.

You may choose to call them circumstances or by any other name. We have, directly or indirectly shaped by the events and incidents in our lives. Some of them have been good, some bad – and some, unfortunately – ugly. Yet, if you are alive and reading this – you have surpassed each one of them; whatever their nature.

We have to determine our purpose through sanctity and define our methods strategically, and implement them with tact.

But we have to know what we fight for. That is the purpose and that will determine your strategy. Your enemy may provide a sense of purpose – but that can never be yours, that is borrowed – and then – you are fighting for what they have decided. It is a retaliation. You don’t own the rules.

Purpose and methods, however, should never mix.

This really is about you; your character. It will show in shining colours. Shining bright or shining dark – it does not matter. Because, when a purpose is defined and held strong the means and the methods have to cease to matter. Stick to your purpose – losing is as noble a purpose as winning. But only if you know why.

When the game is played – all rules and no rules are in play.

Enjoy the game.

  1. I liked how you differentiated b/w the purpose & the methods. But doesn’t separating them can lead to negative & disastrous course of action. Where only purpose assumes the leading role & actions matter not like extremism. I think the purpose might be separate but should be taken with the choice of method used to achieve it.

    • Hello Praveen, welcome to Gaizabonts. Interesting argument – the clarity of purpose – I assume – will guide the method. There is of course a whole lot of other factors like a value system and such which will also come into play. My thought here – was to stress that clarity of purpose is foremost.
