The question about life is nothing new to we humans, the answer to this question has eluded even the brightest mind of ancient time.

Many people have ask questions like what is life?,why do we exist ?, does life have a beginning or not, but these questions has no answer till date.

I remember the story of a hunter, An old sage spoke about;

It goes like this; there was a hunter who went to the forest to hunt animals, unknowingly for him their was another hunter in that same forest who was also trying to hunt for a living, in the process the first hunter shot his arrow at the second hunter, thinking he was aiming at an animal,but unfortunately it was the second hunter that was hit,so the second hunter was in anguished. the first hunter ran away out of fear when he realized what he had done.

A Sufi was passing by the forest and he saw the second hunter on the ground with the arrow in his body, the SUFI asked the second hunter should he help him to remove the arrow, so that the wound can be treated,but the second hunter was not buying the idea,he only insisted on knowing who shot the arrow, this conservation went on and on till the second hunter gave up the ghost.

So the Sufi interpreted the story as,the first hunter represent LIFE, while the Arrow represent CHALLENGES which life shot at us.the second hunter represent we humans. the Sufi said; some of us when we are face with the challenges of life, we keep asking questions about where the challenges is coming from,who was responsible for the challenge, instead of us to just focus on the challenge and look for solution to it.

Life is like a woman who gave birth to a child, but after the delivery she could not find her child, so since then life has been searching for her child. today life may lift you up, and tommorow it may be the other way around, no matter the situation in which life may place us, we should never enter the gate of depression, because Life is a journey that we all must complete, all these challenges that life gives to us is just to test how tough we are and also to build us up for the challenges that we may later face in the future.

To me I see life as a gift that everyone of us should be greatful of, from the birth of a new born child, to rising of the sun in east,to the birth of the stars are all part of what I call life.

Life does not have to do with just living,or being alive, everything in the universe from life to death are serving thier purpose, without the ray of light coming from the sun, the Survival of life won't have been possible, and also without the earth how will the sun know their is a purpose behind it creation. We should all note that, In life purpose is what give meaning to our existence.

Purpose give meaning to life

Life don't not only have to do with eating, Surviving, going to work. it also has to do with how many people we have impacted positively in our journey of life.

life is more than just day to day activities.it has to do with love, compassion, putting smile on people faces,impacting people and so on.

We should all try to discover our purposes In life and why we exist, this will help us alot and give more meaning to our definition of life.

I just approved your article to this community. But please edit your spaces in association with punctuation. This is not correct "...arrow,these,,,", neither is "...earth ,how..." ; it should be "...arrow, these..." and "...earth, how...". There are many such errors, please correct that.

I agree with you, that life is a journey, and not a destination. All of us should continue striving to learn more, to keep on accomplishing our own dreams.

It's a truth, that life is meaningless in a world of today. Each of us have to find out a purpose of life.

Purposeful life brings a meaningful lifestyle. When there is knowledge and understanding, happiness and success has to follow.

This story is a source of inspiration.
