Consider: And is everyone’s purpose different, but is equally important to their unique function as a part of the whole?

Vee, developing your consciouness may be signature specific, but the end goal is the same for all- universal awareness.

I do not view it as a paradox. I absolutely agree that we're all here for the same reason. Though our purposes may differ they're nevertheless equally important. Think of the yin/yang concept.

Thank you, namaste

I don't view it as a paradox either. I think we are all part of that one Universal Consciousness and are here to grow and expand and allow that one consciousness to experience itself through our individuality.

I came across a quote in one of Deepak Chopra's books a while ago ( Not sure if it was his quote or he attributed it to someone else ), but it has stuck with me since.

  • " We are the totality of the Universe expressing itself through a human nervous system"

You're welcome Vee :)

I think it is totally plausible that there is no REASON why we are here.

The more I try to learn objectivity the more I want to say..

It just is :)

I can totally see that as well. The meaning or the reason is whatever we say it is, that's why I choose fun 8-D

(11 Feb '11, 08:43) Eddie

Yes 8-D a very fine choice :)

@ Jim: “No reason,” well, could it be we are not here at all! Thank you.

I see it like in Fred's comment above. Or In my words - remembering ourself, who we really are.

And most importantly the reason is for having as much fun as possible. After all, we're not separate from Consciousness and Consciousness invented the Universe; brought it forth from nothing. and filled it with Itself, us, to play around in, to have fun in and have a laugh in. So let's lighten up people and rise up to the next level of the game of life and have fun on the way, why not?

And if for whatever reason you personally need it to be some other reason, then simply make one up; one that resonates with you and go with that, believe that, have fun with that :)

@ Eddie: Another Great answer, fun it is! Thank you.

I would tend to agree with Michael that we are not here for any purpose but only to have the experience of being in the physical body.

durham, then what do you do with it, let it wither away with your bones or take another step in your evolution. in some respects we are all in the boat, though holding tight our individualty at different intrevals unless afraid to grow

(12 Feb '11, 01:41) fred

@ Drham: Interesting observation, but Fred has made a very valid point. Thank you.
