Sums up what you need to make the most of life rather nicely in my book as well. But that doesn't make it the purpose of life to have them, does it?
That'd be like saying to get the most out of something, you need soandso, so the purpose of that something is to gain soandso.
And then I tend to see it like this: Once I'm dead I have once again my full access to the knowledge that now lies hidden beyond the shroud of illusion that comes with physical life and the rules of the game. So I don't need to go hunting for truth down here, cause I'll know truth automatically once the shroud has been lifted.
I'll be once more that totally whole, knowing, perfect soul or energy entity I was before I choose to become wrapped up in a body on the physical plane. So how can the purpose of life be a hunt for truth, love and strength? That'd be like looking for what you have already on another plane right now.
If there's a purpose to life in the old-fashioned sense then to me it must be something that can only be achieved or done on the physical plane. So if you'd ask me right now what my purpose in being born was, I'd say it was to come to grips with being in a body and on a physical plane and all the challenges that come along with that, and to express what my soul loves and longs for on this plane, and thus adding to it in a creative way.
