Michael Cupo: Life’s Purpose


Life has its own intentions and purpose and when the mind is quiet one is in alignment with it, not to satisfy a self created made up purpose, but strictly for the betterment of the Universe.

You do what you do because the Conditioned Mind tells you what to do. You wake up in the morning and the day begins. You do whatever it is that you do and around sixteen hours later it’s time to go to sleep so you can do it again tomorrow. We say tomorrow, but the reality of life is it’s one continuous journey, there aren’t really any breaks in it. Time, days, years, decades, centuries, are all man made concepts. They’re needed to the extent of establishing some structure in life, but we hold on to them as if they are an end to a means, we allow them to control our life. This is like how we allow our vices to control us and if this sounds like you, fret not for you can take the next step to recovery and regain control.

I’m not saying nothing matters, but does anyone living really know the purpose of life and what it’s truly all about ? Life’s purpose is relatively unknown, sure we can make things up and as a species we’re actually very good at it, we can make up a purpose about helping others, or loving others, raising a family, being kind, awakening to a made up life purpose, working as this or that, or whatever it is that we use to justify our existence, but the bottom line is one day just like that and without permission, POW our existence ends. In the blink of an eye it’s over and whatever it is that we were making our purpose, is let go of it.

For me, life is meaningless only to the point where I make up a purpose so it’s the way I think it should be. Look at all the so called unfortunate people in the world, I need to help them. Who am I doing this for, them or to satisfy my purpose? If we all lived in a state of abundance and there was no one less unfortunate than me (in my mind anyway) what would my life’s purpose be then. I’m not saying don’t help others, but does it need to be made into a purpose or can it just be something to do without adding a label to it?

I guess life has purpose, but whatever that is, it isn’t what one makes it out to be. It doesn’t really matter what that is because it would only be made up to fulfill some inner lack. Life has its own intentions and purpose, and when the mind is quiet there can be alignment with it, but when there’s living for a self created purpose, one is in alignment with something the Conditioned Mind makes up, not life. Only when it’s realized to be mindful of the present moment is life’s true purpose fulfilled because in the moment there’s no time, days, years, decades, centuries, or whatever else the Conditioned Mind uses to block the Universe from using a person for its betterment. The only thing needed for this to occur is to be still, and once there’s stillness one can be used as the Universe sees fit for its betterment, not for a created purpose to fulfill the Conditioned Mind.


~I am the author of the book: “It’s Monday: Only in Your Mind: You Are Not Your Thoughts.” The book has led to numerous speaking appearences, newspaper articles, being a keynote speaker at the high school I graduated from, a Superior Merit Award, radio interviews, along withe being a presenter at the Women’s Network Support Group For New Jersey’s Largest Public Utlility PSE&G., where I have worked for twenty eight years. It’s Monday Only in Your Mind: You Are Not Your Thoughts led to a Facebook page, named after my book, where thousands gather daily to read inspirational writings. I share with people, that there is an option to suffering and it doesn’t have to be. My journey is one where I never felt good enough as a child and by late teens and well into adulthood, I found myself addicted to drugs, alcohol, gambling, and many other things – my behavior was killing me and harming those I loved. In my inspiration book, I share my passage of inner discoveries, filled with valuable tools in order to live in a state of surrender, acceptance, grace and personal peace. I write an article everyday about how to cope with daily life occurennces in a way that allows one to live life to the fullest. The articles links are posted on my website.
