What is the Purpose of Life?

Every one of us has pondered the purpose of life; why we are born, why we struggle, and what happens after we die. If we fail to dig deeper, life will not make sense, it will have no meaning. Are we just tiny meaningless entities in the universe who die and then are recycled into the earth without leaving a trace?

I believe that there is a greater plan for everything that has or will ever exist. As in many other instances of analysis we must always look at the bigger picture. Over time I have taken aspects of others’ theories and put them together. Now I will share my perspective and paint that picture for you.

The concepts I share have been supported by a wide variety of credible sources, more than I could begin to cite in this article. I have been enlightened by the opinions of others, but I do not give credence to their theories simply because they have affirmed their beliefs. I give credence to their theories because, after much contemplation, they make sense to me.

Many people have had glimpses into the after-life, but ultimately the purpose of life is a mystery that cannot be fully comprehended until we pass from this earth and experience what comes next for us.

I believe that we are the physical manifestation of evolving souls—spiritual beings living a human experience. Our souls progress through what we experience while in our physical bodies. Those progressions take us through a series of spiritual growth levels—the ultimate goal being convergence with the infinite light.

In its search for growth every soul incarnates at least one time to experience life. Some souls choose to repeatedly come back to earth school.

Before incarnating we outline the lessons our souls need to experience for their ongoing spiritual evolutions. We contract with other souls to share cooperative physical journeys; they assist us and we assist them in our learning processes.

Our soul’s primary focus is the facilitation of its spiritual growth. We come here to work things out; to grow through challenges and rise above adversity.

The more difficult the challenges faced in the physical world are and the more hurdles are jumped, the more rapid one’s spiritual growth will be. Though adversity involves suffering and hardship and is certainly undesirable, it is only a catalyst put before us to help us grow.

There is no suffering or adversity in the blissful, spiritual realm, the home where we spend most of eternity. Because we make the decision to face adversity while existing in a place of serenity and cannot remember how incredibly difficult life as a human may be, our souls may sometimes take on extremely difficult challenges.

Though the goal is to rise above our challenges, sometimes they are humanly insurmountable, but the effort put forth to overcome them is never wasted.

    You sound like every religion.
    Eat shit and like it.
    Are our souls so stupid that we have to suffer over and over and over?!?
    Can’t they SEE what other souls have experienced.
    Are they that selfish not to care how we feel.
    Sound’s to me like we are nothing more than gienny pigs for the soul.

    “Nothing contributes so much to tranquilize the mind as a steady purpose — a point on which the soul may fix its intellectual eye.” ~Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley, Frankenstein, 1818

    Sounds like you’re in the wrong forum. The disgruntled humans forum is elsewhere. Not here. Peace and Love Mr. GrouchFest.

    I personally dig Manly P. Hall’s lecture on the meaning of life.

    Human’s purpose of life on planet earth is for us to overcome sin and choose to live in righteousness. The New Testament Bible tells us Christ was sent to the earth to help humans in this purpose.

    Okayeee ! So we decide to be reborn, we decide what lessons we want to learn or conditions we want to experience . Our aim is to make it into the light and become part of the Universal Energy. Is that right. ? What for ? Why ? and To what end. ?….. are we still an individual with likes and dislikes and thought even when we meld into the Universal Energy. hmmmm dunno.
