|“The goal of life is to make your heartbeat match the beat of the universe, to match your nature with Nature." ~ Joseph Campbell|
I believe that everything and everyone emanates from a single Divine Source, and our purpose is to realize this in all that we are and everything we do. It takes many lifetimes to do this, as it is no small task! Each lifetime is part of the path to realizing our true nature, and the lessons we need to learn in our lives vary greatly from person to person. I also believe that this Divine Source, which is our true nature, is all Good and that evil and suffering is the result of a perceived disconnect from the Divine Source. So what I feel is my purpose in life is to live virtuously and learn the lessons I came here in this lifetime to learn. I only hope I'm doing an okay job of it!
|'Abdu'l-Bahá (son of Baha'u'llah (the prophet of the baha'i faith) gave the wonderful example of the relation of this life to the next life being like the child in the womb; it develops eyes, ears, hands, feet, a tongue, and yet it has nothing to see or hear, it cannot walk or grasp things or speak; all these faculties it is developing for this world. If you tried to explain to an embryo what this world is like could never understand- but it understands when it is born, and its faculties can be used. So we cannot picture our state in the next world.|
