You are here to serve a greater purpose, beyond mere survival and the gratification of the things you may think you want. This is true because you have a spiritual nature. You have a spiritual origin and a spiritual destiny. Your failure in this life is the failure to respond to your spiritual nature, which has been distorted and maligned by the religions of your world, which has been neglected and denied by the science of your world. You have a spiritual nature. You have a greater purpose to serve. When you trust your inclination for this purpose, you will be able to come closer to it. When you feel confident that it represents a genuine source of love, then you will begin to open yourself to it, and this will be a great homecoming for you.
When discussing spiritual matters, a friend once told me, “Isn’t there just a guidebook on the purpose of life?”
It was a reasonable question, it seemed to me. Then my friend said, “I don’t have time to read everything. Can’t someone just tell me what to do so that I feel connected and I feel like I am living the life I am supposed to live?”
I sympathized. But my friend’s desire for a “purpose guidebook” contains in it the seeds of it’s own disuse. You see, if a person does not really KNOW their purpose by feeling it deep inside, they won’t believe what they are told.
Too often, a person will prefer their own plans for a life’s purpose which they conjured from their imagination. People prefer what they want rather than what they need.
Fortunately for my friend, there is a new book that briefly speaks to this dilemma of wanting fast answers to deep questions. It is called, “Secrets of Heaven” and it gives some of the most inspiring and brief answers to humanity’s most difficult questions.
Here’s one quote:
“People want purpose, but not Knowledge. Do you see? They just say, ‘Tell me what to do so I’ll feel better.'”
You are here to serve. You are here to give. You are here because you are rich with Knowledge. Regardless of your circumstance in life, your own sense of poverty will be banished forever as Knowledge arises within you, for there can be no sense of deprivation when Knowledge is being experienced and expressed. This is the promise of this program of preparation. This is the promise of your life. This is your destiny and your mission here.
From this, your specific calling in the world will be given to you. It will be quite specific to your activities and behavior. Before this can happen, your mind must be cultivated, and your life must be rearranged and brought into genuine balance so that it may reflect your Knowledge and not your fears and wishes only. A greater life must come from a Greater Source within you. A greater life is made possible for you now. You are here to serve, but to serve you must receive.”
Relationships and important partnerships like marriage are the proving ground for expressing and developing our life purpose.
Without these relationships of purpose, we are stuck in our heads. But how do we find these relationships of purpose?
You want relationships desperately, but you do not know what to do with them. You are like a person who has an appetite, but does not know how to eat. So you thirst and hunger for the great feast, but when you sit at the table you cannot eat. This is your dilemma.
Many people ask,“How can I find true partnership?” That is not a good question. Find what is true and partnership will find you.
Purpose emanates from your Knowledge. You have had experiences
of Knowledge already. It is this that requires cultivation. There is great
assistance to help you do this. Then relationship will come to you. That is
the way. Learn to eat. Do not seek food. Learn to eat. Or you will sit at
the table and realize you cannot fulfill yourself. You will not be satisfied.
You are here for a greater purpose than you have imagined, for your imagination does not contain the meaning of your purpose in life. In life there is only purpose and all the things that are substitutes for this purpose, which are born of fearful imagination.
You are here to live a greater life than you have yet realized, and this greatness is what you carry within you. It may be expressed in the simplest of lifestyles and in the simplest of activities. Activities are great because of the essence that they convey, not because of the stimulation that they may arouse in other people.
You are beginning, perhaps in the very slightest way, your return to your Source, your return to the greater purpose that has brought you into the world, which has been unaccounted for in your previous efforts and associations. You do not know what this is, for you have not reached the place where you can see it clearly. For you are in the stage of undoing, the stage of dismantling what you have created that is not true, that is not authentic, that does not represent your heart and soul.
You built these things out of convenience or expediency or pressured by the expectations of others or the belief you could only be happy and have meaningful relationships if you acquired such things and such status.
Now the clouds have gathered around your dreams, your hopes and your fantasies, and you find yourself in a state of despair, a state of frustration and anxiety.
Perhaps you think you are failing in life, but Heaven looks upon this as a great and hopeful sign.
Perhaps now there is a chance, a distant chance, but a real chance that this individual may turn this corner and continue to bring real honesty to their endeavors and have the courage to release those things that are untrue or inappropriate.
We are meant to be a portal from heaven. For that is where we came from and that is where we will return to.
You are a portal from Heaven
For you to experience your relationship with God, you must realize that you have come from a place of reality to establish that reality in a place where it has been forgotten and denied. This is your purpose. God has given you Knowledge, your spiritual power, to accomplish this task. To say it in a different way, you have come from your Ancient Home to a place where you are away from Home in order to establish your Ancient Home here.
Is this to mean, then, that you are to establish Heaven on Earth? Only partially. The Earth cannot be Heaven. Yet you can experience Heaven while you are in the world.
You experience God through discovering and carrying out your purpose for being here. If you are not serving the purpose for which you have come, you will be in profound confusion concerning your relationship with yourself, with others, with the world and with God.
You have come into the world because you knew that you had to do this. God knew you had to do this because the world is a place where work has to be undertaken. Your real reason for coming into the world is to re-establish your experience of your Ancient Home here and to give specific gifts that you were sent to contribute.
