Are We Born With a Purpose?

Dear Julius,

In the consciousness arena, there are many discussions about finding your purpose and how living your purpose leads to fulfillment in life. Julius, what do you have to say about the idea of everyone having a purpose in this life, and how important is it to discover and live it?

Dearest Master,

It has long been theorized that one’s Soul must have a destiny or a purpose to fulfill when they embark on an experience here on this realm.

Unfortunately, this theory doesn’t support all that God is, nor does it make any sense to the common mind.

We are often criticized for our theory that YOU ARE GOD having a physical experience. This knowing simply doesn’t support that God would have a destiny to fulfill.

All experience simply is…that which is Source. There is no other reason than to simply be on your own thought adventure that leads you to becoming the all.

To become the all, you must experience the all—not just parts or some of it that some deity commands or decides you must do. Especially when most humans have no idea what this thing is.

In order to find total fulfillment in one’s life experience, all you have to do is ANYTHING you want to and find JOY in it.

This will provide the accomplishment your Soul is desiring…to be and do it in JOY!

Getting it Right

It is unfortunate that so many go through life trying to figure out what they are “supposed to do,” missing every aspect of joyous experience because they are so concerned about getting it “right.”

It is all right! All of it, every little tiny aspect and every grand accomplishment, is Source experiencing and expanding itself, and there is nothing more joyous and fulfilling than that.

So go on your way Master, and enjoy finding meaning in every single moment knowing you are on the path of remembering yourself as the all.

For to become the all you must experience the All.

Source finds joy in all things; it is the creator of all things. How could one thing created by God be better than another? When one is able to see things from the all-powerful vantage point that they are Source, then they will know this. For if Source had a preference for you or any other, then Source would have judgment upon itself that one thing about itself is more worthy than the next.

This is man’s process, not God’s. It is man who judges, expects, requires, rewards, and punishes. It is man who has created guilt and remorse for himself when he became separated from his knowing he was the All.

Come back to your knowing, come back to your full magnificence, and judge and be judged no more. Then you can share this joyous knowing with others and let them know that there is never a requirement of even a suggestion from God. Just allowing.

As it will be,

Julius

Sacrifice as a Catalyst for Rebirth and Bliss in Joseph Campbell's Hero's Journey

Sacrifice and Bliss Joseph Campbell's Hero's Journey

Joseph Campbell is one of the most influential writers, philosophers, and professors in history. His work on mythology has taken native stories beyond their face value and deep into the human psyche, where they resonate with the core of who we are. 

Campbell’s life’s work brought countless people across the world in touch with the collective unconscious that underlies our every thought and motivates us to seek happiness. His phrase “follow your bliss” is now a household prompt, thanks to a series of interviews with celebrated journalist Bill Moyers in the early ‘90s. Gaia members can now experience this timeless discussion, listening to episodes discussing “The Hero’s Adventure”, “Sacrifice and Bliss”, and more.

Campbell’s teachings applied the lessons of heroes and metaphors of mythology to our own lives. “A myth is not a lie,” he famously said, despite this commonly misused definition. Rather, a myth is a story meant to turn the mind inward to reflect upon itself and reveal the essential truths of reality and our relationship to the transcendent. 

As Campbell explains in his series of interviews with Moyers, myth is often constructed as a hero’s journey — a pivotal course of events that slowly test the story’s protagonist and push them to the next step of unfoldment — toward transcendence. Each obstacle the hero experiences is a reflection of himself, as he is moved one step closer to sacrifice the egoic sense of self to the greater good, which is total consciousness.

When we study mythology, Campbell taught, we find the theme of sacrifice to be all-important. We must let go in order to receive what is already present. Campbell said, “A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself.” The hero sacrifices his lower nature for his higher nature, and his safety for the one he rescues, or perhaps an object of desire for a noble cause. 

Campbell taught that sacrifice is a theme that runs through all things natural — death (the sacrifice of a living being) gives way to new life in an ever-continuing cycle. But death is often metaphorical and may be the death of a habit, a pattern of thinking, or an attachment to something. Or, he said, “When you make the sacrifice in marriage, you’re sacrificing not to each other but to unity in a relationship.”
