The Purpose Derived Life

by Kenneth P. Langer

(sample available below)


The important questions of life can haunt us–especially if we try to avoid them–but working to answer them provides richness and meaning in our lives. It is possible to live a life with purpose, a life aligned with nature and all living beings, a life that benefits ourselves and those we love, and it is possible to do all these things regardless of spiritual tradition or practice. Religion, relationships, information, and insights are all tools to be used but, ultimately, you are the builder of your life. No one will live it but you and no one else will be ultimately responsible for the decisions you make.

A purposeful life combines your values, abilities, and interests with your intention, commitment, and action. Learn how to find meaning and direction for all the roles in your life.
