Consider: And is this the part of our character to manifest, to reach out to others and to continue the work of our fore fathers? And does these attributes help to define our true essence?

I was discussing an issue based upon our ancestors with some friends, and I was inspired to ask this question.

This is not a duplicate question.

Vee you have asked four different questions here, what are you really asking? Would you like all four answered in this as in four part answers?

Good question, and very profound, Vee!>>>>>>>>>>>>

Vee, please do not ask multiple questions in one question. I've asked you many times not to do this and have referred you to the FAQ: . Embedding multiple questions within one is bad for the site. This is now your final warning regarding this matter. If you continue to do this, your questions will be closed.

@Wade C and Barry Allen: It is all to do with interpretation, and it is like writing an essay, with the topic sentence, and the four topic points that you are addressing, and to alert you, we all construct our questions based upon our thought pattern, and our thinking power. This is how I was inspired to ask this question to give more meaning to it, and I do not know how I will be inspired to ask my next question. I am sorry if I offended you Wade, or is there another reason for your question?

@Wade C and Barry Allen Thank you both for the feedback and to Barry Allen feel free to close any of my questions that you do not approve of. I guess this is how we learn from each other thank you. You can minus the one point if it helps.

The true essence of our being is to survive, then thrive, in happiness. We are wired for pleasure; we are wired to learn. It is not any of our duty at all to continue what our forefathers may have done. Instead, we are to do our own work in our own way. These are some of the things that help teach us our "essence" as we grow up. Learning, achieving goals, and loving seem to all be very high on the happiness scale. We feel most alive when all of those qualities are hummin' along in our souls.

A wonderful lady, a brain scientist named Jill Bolte Taylor had a stroke, and had the rare opportunity to experience the total loss of her left brain, our usual side for cognitive experience. Watch this video, and find out that we contain Nirvana in our right brain...She sheds light on some profound and new ideas about how we perceive the world, and what we need to do to experience God.

I feel my purpose is to figure out what God's Will is for me, and to do it Wholeheartedly. In doing this, I have found the essence of my soul, and Nirvana, too.

Blessings, Jai

Interesting answer, thank you.

it maybe:
that spark of the All is the immortal part of our character or its essence,
as it descends from spirit to matter it gathers 'coats of skin'.
in its material form its personality evolves and develops into an individuality,
until it realizes again the true essence of its inseparateness or universality with all life.
