Purpose

There are three categories of people traveling through the procession of life: time-oriented, goal-oriented and purpose-oriented…The third category of people is composed of those few individuals who are purpose-oriented: whatever they think, speak, and do is in accordance with their purpose in life…What label one attaches to this purpose -happiness, perfection, health, a state of tranquility, nirvana, samadhi, Godhead – is immaterial. The people of this last category are rare, but they are healthy in all respects.~Swami Rama, Himalayan Institute
