What is the Purpose of Life?

Since the dawn of man, man has wanted to know what it is he is doing here.

What is the purpose of life?


To expand the Universe. 

Q: What was the purpose of my entering Earth's plane at this time?

A: To complete self's finding self. - Edgar Cayce 

Physical beings are the mechanism in which the Universe gets to know itself.

The Universe expands through us by means of our desires.

The Universe wants to know what it is, desire provides it with that knowledge. When we have a desire, the Universe says ah, that's what I am. 

“Through our eyes, the Universe is perceiving itself. Through our ears, the Universe is listening to its harmonies. We are the witnesses through which the Universe becomes conscious of its glory, of its magnificence.” - Alan Watts

You were designed to desire.

Desire summons life force. Having no desires is to put an end to the Universe.

It goes against the reason why you came into physical being. Being alive requires new desires. 

Universal expansion and human growth require desire.

Having desires is the purpose of life. 

Desire does not cause suffering. You suffer when:

  • You believe you can't get what you desire
  • You do not understand that desire will never end

It is in the Universe's best interest for you to get everything you want. The Universe can’t gain expansion unless you get what you want. When you get what you want, you can allow more. That way the Universe becomes more. 

Obtaining your desires is one of the most pleasurable experiences a human being can have. This feeling inevitably leaves us wanting more, which is why those who appear to have it all are never quite satisfied.

There is no having it all, there is no end game. There will always be more to be desired. You never get "there." Once you realize this you can start enjoying the journey from one desire to the next.

Have fun expanding the universe!
