Discovering Your Life's Purpose

Discovering your life's purpose isn't about realizing what you need to change. It is not a moment where you throw away your past as useless. It is a sudden epiphany where you realize why you needed your past experiences. It is a moment of understanding where you realize what your life has been teaching you. At every point of life, you were aware of your life's purpose. It does not exist as a piece of conscious knowledge, yet we always find ourselves in situations that teach us what we need to know. It is only in hindsight that we realize that we learned something important. Our new understanding changes our life. If you throw away your past then you also disregard all of the wisdom that you gained through your experiences. A new life is created for those who have learned what they needed to learn. They have moved on because life wont allow them to stay in a situation in which they cannot learn something new.
