"Your Knowledge is your purpose." [1]

Each of us has been sent into the world for a greater purpose, waiting to be discovered. This greater purpose resides beyond the realm and the reach of the intellect, in Knowledge deep within us.

Blessings and affirmations of meaning in life

"You have come at a great time. You have come to give important things. Congratulations!" [2]

"You have come for a great purpose. Therefore, you need a great preparation. You need great companions. And you need a great heart. This is your gift and your destiny. It is this that you have come to be a part of. And it is a blessing that it is so." [2]

"Be happy that you have a higher purpose in life, for this means that your life is meaningful and not chaotic.... Be grateful, then, that the relationships you reclaim unto yourself you will be able to keep, for once you have recognized another, you cannot forget that person." [3]

Directives

"Do not define your purpose today." [4]

"Do not compare your purpose with the purpose of your ancestors. Do not think that your purpose is the same as someone's a thousand years ago or five hundred years ago or even one hundred years ago. Your purpose is related to the needs of the world and the circumstances of the world." [5]

"Do not be analytical. For this is happening at a deeper and more profound level. Do not shrink from this, for this is your life, your purpose and your calling." [6]

"Never think that your purpose will arise from what you want for yourself." [5]

Purpose in life not self-determined

"Your purpose here is not self-created. It was given to you before you came. It was given to you by your Spiritual Family beyond this world." [7]

"People often wish to remain in speculation and fantasy because it seems they have so many options available to them. They say to themselves, 'Well, any way that I go is just fine! I will end up at my true destination, for all the roads lead to truth!' Do not say these things to yourself, for you are not taking seriously the real opportunities and decisions that you face in life. Roads lead off in all directions. You need to find the right one and stay with it." [8]

Purpose in life not self-evident

"You have come here for a purpose, to remember your True Home while you are in the world. The great purpose that you carry is with you at this moment, and it will arise in stages as you undergo the preparation that we are providing for you." [9]

Purpose in life not self-serving

"God is not calling you to return to your heavenly state, but to enter into the world for the purpose that you have come." [10]

"You have come to serve the world." [11]

"Your calling is great because your purpose is great. Your purpose is great because your nature is great. Your nature is great because your Creator is great. Do not be discouraged, then, but allow yourself to be challenged and challenge yourself. You came here to learn. You came here to accomplish something." [12]

"This is your world. This is why you have come. You did not come to sleep on a beautiful planet, but to help preserve it and protect the human family from decline and from subjugation." [13]

"People... think, 'Well, my purpose? Let's see, what do I want?' as if they were choosing from a great wish list... Purpose has to do with what the world needs from you and what you are able to give to the world, which may or may not conform to you personal goals, plans and ambitions." [5]

The intersection of world's needs with one's own design

"You have come into the world at a time of tremendous change and challenge. It is not an easy time to be in the world, but if contribution is your purpose and intention, it is the right time to be in the world. You have come at a great turning point. ... You have not come here to live a normal life under quiescent circumstances. You have not come here to retire, to go into repose or to live a life of quiet meditation. You have come to serve a world whose needs are immense and pressing and whose time has come for a greater encounter with life beyond its borders." [2]

"You have come to help save the world, to give humanity a future and to give your race a greater opportunity—an opportunity to unite, to develop and to become stronger, wiser and more capable, an opportunity to outgrow its tribal divisiveness, its religious fanaticism, its violence, its selfishness and its self-indulgence." [2]

"You came here to assist in some specific way the world's emergence into the Greater Community because this is the biggest thing that is happening here. This is the most consequential event in human history." [14]

"Ultimately, everyone's purpose serves the reclamation and the preservation of Knowledge in the world. However, what you may end up doing may seem very different from this, if only in appearance. It is the spirit with which you give, the quality of your gift and the quality of your awareness and your relationships that will keep Knowledge alive in the world. Everything else that is accomplished is to help people, to serve people, to heal people, to enable people, to strengthen people and to take care of people." [5]

"It is your purpose to serve the evolution of this world, as it is the world's purpose to serve your evolution." [15]

Purpose in life bestows meaning in life & integrates it

"For a person to respond to God’s Revelation, they must recognize at the outset that they cannot fulfill themselves given the usual habits, diversions and enjoyments that people around them are so deeply invested in. They must realize they have a greater need and a greater responsibility in life. This will be demonstrated at the outset by their suffering and their discouragement with the world around them as they gradually lose interest in the games and hobbies of people around them because they have a deeper need that is now emerging.

If they have satisfied the needs of the body through food, clothing, shelter and security; if they have satisfied the needs of the mind through the availability of education and opportunity, then the greater need will begin to arise within them. This is the need of the soul, which can only be fulfilled by recognizing, accepting and fulfilling your greater purpose for coming here—which is something that resides entirely beyond the realm and the reach of the intellect. You cannot figure it out, but you can and must experience it. And it is waiting to be discovered." [16]

"God knows what is coming over the horizon. God knows why you are here. God has sent you here for a purpose. Your plans and goals rarely account for this. It is something greater. It is something more simple and less grandiose. It is something essential to your Being and to your nature and to your design. It is the most primary relationship you have, the deepest love, the greatest affinity. It unites you with yourself and brings your life into focus." [17]

Confusion regarding purpose in life

"Trying to live without purpose, meaning and direction has given rise to all of the escapes and meaningless pursuits that preoccupy, endanger and damage people all around you. You yourself have experienced this in your own life." [7]

"Wrong decisions in relationships have disabled and disarmed many a promising person in the world. Many have lost their way and many have lost their chance in life as a result of making decisions here without Knowledge." [18]

"Everyone was sent into the world to be in the world at this time, to face these great and emerging circumstances. So to claim it is too much for you is simply to admit your weakness and to not recognize your responsibility to prepare." [19]

"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." [20]

Metaphor

"You are the captain of your ship, and you must manage everything that occurs within it. However, you do not assume to direct your ship, to justify it or to determine its origin or its destiny." [21]

"The world is like a slowly burning ship at this time. People want to get off the ship, but you are sent here to help the ship. If you go back prematurely to your Spiritual Family, and they say, “What are you doing here?” And you say, “Oh, I am so glad to get out of there! It was terrible down there!” And they say, “What? You aren’t due back for twenty years! Did you give them the messages?” And you say, “What messages?” Then you remember. Then you remember all about getting ready to go into the world. Then you remember the whole thing, and you say, “Oh, no! I completely forgot!” [22]
