How Do I Define My Purpose in Life?

How Do I Define My Purpose in Life? Take the Steps to KnowledgeHow do I define my purpose in life, because I know I am here for a very good reason.

I can feel my purpose when I look into the eye of a child. I can feel this purpose when I am experiencing the beauty of nature. I feel this purpose when I am engrossed in a good book or looking at amazing art.

But how do I define my purpose in life? What is my role? I’m not getting any younger and I’m tired of waiting for a life purpose to come hit me in the face!

I work all day, take care of family on the weekends and yet, where is my purpose? Is my purpose just to have a family? I love my family, but is that it? Am I just a human reproductive machine?

I certainly hope not, so hurry up heavenly father, God, higher power or whatever you call yourself: how do I define my purpose in life? I really want to know!

Well, the joke is on me. My purpose is there. It has always been there. I could never see it. I had lost it. I had lost myself. My mind wanted to control my purpose, define it, shape it and make it look pretty to the World.

Steps to Knowledge brought me back to my true self, back to my real life, back to my higher purpose. By taking the reins of my life from my mind, I am now able to experience my purpose rather than defining it for myself:

You do not need to define your purpose when in time your purpose will merely arise and be known by you. Do not live by definitions. Live by experience and understanding. You do not need to define your purpose, and if you attempt to do so, always remember that it is only a temporary expedient. Do not give it great credibility. In this way, the world cannot anger you, for what can the world do to you but undermine your definition of yourself? If you are not living upon your definitions, the world cannot harm you, for it cannot touch the place of Knowledge that is within you.

I am the God of my Universe

Share Button

It is very lonely to be a little god of your own universe. If you think, “I am the God of my Universe,” then you need to defend it against all others who are also little gods. Sometimes people agree that another person is the god of their universe, in their private life or in politics. What is the sense of that?

I am the God of my Universe

“I am the God of my Universe” is very misguided thinking

You have been created by God for a purpose. Your traits and innermost character have been made for a special purpose. As long as you are not moving forward towards this purpose you see these traits as a hindrance or a nuisance. You are in constant inner war. The New God can end this war. There is no war in God’s stillness or in God’s movement.

People wish to control their lives. They want to make separation work. They want to make it. But can you really be the god of your universe when there actually is a real God of the Universe out there and inside you?

Do you have any idea that this universal new God has a plan for your life? And trust me, this plan is not about you making it and beating everyone in the competition of life and dying rich and famous, or for you to be as a master consumer or a person who has consumed other people’s labor.

It does not matter how smart you are. It does not matter how strong you are. The world will always be stronger. You will die. Then what? What was all that about: the whole thing about living in this world? Did you leave the world a better place or did you leave it suffering more after your effect on it? This is what matters, when you are dead.

Do I have only this one life? How cruel would this be if you consider that some die very young. What would be the point of that? What kind of God would make this kind of nasty system?

“I am the God of my Universe” – What Purpose Would that Serve?

There cannot be a purpose for someone who claims, “I am the god of my own universe.” In this kind of illusion no purpose can exist. But since the universal God exists, also purpose exists for those who give up the illusions.

Your purpose spans many lifetimes and many relationships. It is magnificent in that sense. But how to find it? A pathway has been given by Marshall Vian Summers, a Messenger of God in our time through the Steps to Knowledge. This is a pathway of meaningful work, yes work. Not bliss or pleasure. Everyone is in this world to work, and those who understand it are the happiest.

“You may pray to God to save you, but God has sent you here to save the world, to play your small but essential part in this.”

– quote fromThe New God”

Serve a Greater Purpose

I Am Here To Serve A Greater Purpose

Serve a Greater PurposeYou 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.

Guidebook Purpose

Share Button

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?”

Guidebook purposeI 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 Have Come to the World with Purpose

Share Button

World with PurposeYou 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.”

“He who lacks courage to pursue his purpose will lack the passion to ravish your soul.”

Ravish Your SoulThis may seem corny, but there is truth to this notion that if a person cannot find the strength or motivation to seek out their true purpose, what else are they missing in life?

Purpose and Importance of Partnership

Share Button

Purpose and Importance of Partnership bookRelationships 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 can’t imagine purpose

Share Button

imagine purposeYou 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.

Return to your Source

Share Button

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.

return to your sourceYou 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.
