To live. And go from there.

But we already live, whether you want or not.

There's no aim.

If one has not an aim, then psychological patient.

I believe it to be a truism that every person regardless of faith can support.

There is no external objective aim to life, the universe can't give us an answer here.
But there is an internal subjective aim, it's about learning who you are and what it is you want in life.

Each person determines their own aim in life according to their fundamental beliefs and values.

If a person has no fundamental beliefs or values, their life will have no aim.

The answer is simple.

Your aim is what you make it.

To not be miserable, to be content, but trying for happiness. To try and enjoy the ride.

To I have to be instructed on what is a saint? Or rather a realistic labelling or popular opinion of what a saint is defined as? As per the TOPIC.....Co-existence is the answer, its already 'here'.

The aim of life is reproduction and the continuation of the species. That is the natural instinct of a human and all other organisms. That's what our brains have evolved to do. It is also instinctive to try and enjoy life, provide food, shelter and. enjoyment to your family and try to prolong life as long as possible. It's quite simple really.

Life is a self-sustaining complicated chemical reaction. As suchm life has no particular aim. However living things - especially intelligent, conscious living things - can invent their own aim and goals, and the choice of goals is unlimited.

I am not sure that humanity has any goals today. I think perhaps once we did, when we sent men to the moon and believed that tomorrow was going to be better than today. Not now. When I was a boy people walked on the moon and I could cross the Atlantic at mach 2. Can't do either today, and it seems people expect tomorrow to be worse than today - and they are probably right.

That is probably the objective aim, all other aims are subjective.

We all must obtain a default wisdom that entails a person being incapable of possessing the vanity of thinking they are better than God. All of us must take this "sub standard" spiritual journey. It's the necessary step to gain , through actual experience and "feeling", a wisdom that being equal with God is perfectly acceptable to God but thinking you are better than God comes with chaos, destruction, suffering, etc. Basically, all the things this world has become as a result of human reasoning is the lesson we will take with us to the afterlife. Or maybe the aim in life is to discover some really killer weed to smoke. I'm up for anyone's opinion as long as it doesn't include convincing everyone that we should all be obese, especially women. I just hate that......btw, I just fell asleep while typing this so I'm not even sure I had correct spelling.....

The aim of life for each person is to be happy.
If one deals with what likes, he is happy.
