“Short Story “Purpose Of Life

The purpose of life

A long time ago, there was an Emperor who told his horseman that if he could ride on his horse

and cover as much land area as he likes, then the Emperor would give him the area of land he has


Sure enough, the horseman quickly jumped onto his horse and rode as fast as possible to cover as

much land area as he could. He kept on riding and riding, whipping the horse to go as fast as

possible. When he was hungry or tired, he did not stop because he wanted to cover as much area

as possible

Came to a point when he had covered a substantial area and he was exhausted and was dying
Then he asked himself, “Why did I push myself so hard to cover so much land area? Now I am

dying and I only need a very small area to bury myself

The above story is similar with the journey of our Life. We push very hard everyday to make

more money, to gain power and recognition. We neglect our health , time with our family and to

appreciate the surrounding beauty and the hobbies we love

One day when we look back , we will realize that we don’t really need that much, but then we

cannot turn back time for what we have missed

Life is not about making money, acquiring power or recognition . Life is definitely not about

work! Work is only necessary to keep us living so as to enjoy the beauty and pleasures of life

Life is a balance of Work and Play, Family and Personal time. You have to decide how you want

to balance your Life. Define your priorities, realize what you are able to compromise but always

let some of your decisions be based on your instincts. Happiness is the meaning and the purpose

of Life, the whole aim of human existence. But happiness has a lot of meaning. Which kind of definition would you choose? Which kind of happiness would satisfy your high-flyer soul
