Can you think of just one word to sum up life's Purpose?


As in my last question, I will start, bearing in mind that we are all unique and that there may be many different ways of looking at this. So let's take Balance, for example. Not eating too much or too little; sleeping too much or two little; working too much or two little. Caught you! I meant the inner Balance, Harmony, Equilibrium, Equipoise ... the same things in esoteric language we would call Light or Love or Peace. My Favourite is Love. Your turn.

    My word too, Oztinato. Such an unutterable, yet utterable word. Unspoken yet spoken. An experience through Life and yes, for me life itself. My Favourite.

    Yes, my Friend, Consciousness. Nice one. The Western equivalent is Spirit with a capital 'S.' As to increasing Consciousness, my spiritual mentor spoke of this constantly in His 1600 books. He calls it Self-Transcendence. Happy Easter!

    Yes, LoliHey. I almost went for that one myself. I touch lightly on it when I use the word' Manifestation.' Actually, I've deliberately opened this up, and I'm still waiting for my favourite. You can have another go. They're all valid. Thank you.

    Another great answer. Actually Sri Chinmoy teaches that the Soul is not satisfied even after God-realisation. The Soul returns to manifest God in Creation and within this Manifestation, lies Satisfaction. Om Shanti!

    Yes, you've answered like a God-Lover, and this is not to dissimilar to LoliHey's. Attunement with Grace would impel you sweetly, to walk this Path of which you speak. It is so beautiful!! Praise, adoration ... glory in the imitation of Christ ...

    Miz, like Chitrangada, I like you too. A step higher than hers for me, but still feels like a business. You end well, as you seem to be talking about calling. Something quite different to me.Thank you for the input.

    Agreed! We r on a "mission" which should be: "reconciliation" to the CREATOR!

    Therefore, it's our duty to "Study" (II Tim 2:15) HIS WORD & adhere to IT for "reconciliation" unto HIM!

    Norine, like Chitrangada, 'Mission,' 'Duty' has led Christians to kill the Saints. 21st Century reconcilation is like making up after an argument; of coming to terms with. To reconcile with God is awesome though, for righteousness sake. Thank you.

    Yes, nice answer. I feel it leads to the goal or purpose. Destiny is sometimes unspent like fate. So, for instance, we may have to carry on in another life. Still, a wonderful answer. Thank you, Marc
