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.

To love and be loved...unconditionally. And yes it really is the only thing we need to focus on...if we could all master this we'd be living Heaven on Earth :)

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.
