Who Decides our Purpose of Existence ?

Who decides the purpose of our existence? You might say, “I decide my purpose of existence”. Let us take an example of a pen. What is the true purpose of a pen? The true purpose of a pen is to write. Who decided the true purpose of the pen – the user or the manufacturer? The answer is: the person who first manufactured it. Although, a user may use the pen to scratch his back, we would never conclude that the pen was manufactured for scratching backs. It is the inventor or the manufacturer who decides the true purpose.

Similarly, we as human beings may come out with our own reasons for our existence in this world, but this in no way will become the true purpose of our existence. We can get to know the true purpose of our existence only from our creator.
