Purpose is:

Purpose is not a fixed state or something we can attain. Purpose is a process. We are creatures of evolution, and our malleable brains evolved so that we can adapt better to changing conditions. In other words, we are wired to get better through experience, and this process is our purpose. And if we keep doing that happiness comes as a by-product of fulfilling our life purpose of learning and growing.
