The Purpose of Life

Reading more in Rachel Remen’s My Grandfather’s Blessings I had this thrown into my path:  “Is it possible that there may be an unknowable purpose to life itself?”  In the list of deep questions, that one may be among the deepest, right next to “What is the meaning of life?” –but still, it seems worth pondering even if it makes my head hurt.  All that comes to mind now is the old Gospel tune:

Farther along we’ll know all about it
Farther along we’ll understand why
Cheer up my brother live in the sunshine
We’ll understand it all by and by…

Remen states it this way: “At the moment there was a great silence around that question.  There is a great question around it still.”
