What’s it all about?

The distinguished philosopher, Hugh Moorhead, once wrote to two hundred and fifty well-known philosophers, scientists, writers and intellectuals and asked for their comments on what is the purpose of life. Some of them offered their best guesses, some said they had invented a purpose in life, and some admitted they had no idea. Carl Jung, one of the fathers of modern psychiatry said: “I don’t know the meaning and purpose of life, but it looks as if something were meant by it.” Whereas Isaac Asimov wrote: “As far as I can see, there is no purpose.”
Well, this is all rather tragic because a life without purpose is a life that’s not worth living. It’s time for us to remember again that timeless wisdom of St Augustine who, referring to God, said: “Our hearts will be forever restless until they find their rest in thee.”
