A Philosophical Question From a Busker

Below is a photograph of a piece of paper with one of the most interesting philosophical question ever given to me. I was walking around Cardiff city centre when a very friendly busker gave me this. I no longer believe in a deity, but this got me thinking. I did not ask myself whether I am good enough for heaven. If there really is a god, then god will decide for me.

What I asked myself is whether I am doing a good job in life. Am I serving my purpose? Am I doing my part to help others become better people? Am I doing enough? Are my methods correct? What am I doing for myself?

It offered me a chance to reflect on my life- my actions, my decisions and my future plans.
