Are We Born With a Purpose?
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?
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,

Ancient Practice Lets You Explore Deep States of Consciousness in Your Sleep
Roughly a third of our life is spent sleeping, or at least attempting to get some rest in order to take advantage of the other two-thirds in wakeful consciousness. Ideally, this state is rejuvenating and accompanied by pleasant dreams, allowing the body to clear out all the toxins and amyloids that build up throughout the day.
But what if you could get some of that time back, or use it more productively, while also getting the regenerative benefits of deep slumber?
Don’t worry, this isn’t some new biohacking regimen with bizarre, intermittent naps, but rather a method referred to as dream yoga. Despite its name, dream yoga isn’t an attempt to perform asanas in reverie, but instead to meditatively explore the myriad levels within our minds.
A number of enlightened, spiritual masters are said to have achieved an interminable state of consciousness during their lifetime, in which they maintained awareness while they allowed their bodies to rest at night. These gurus took advantage of every minute of life to explore their inner sanctums and spelunk the deepest caves of consciousness.
Other contemporary dream state explorers, or oneironauts as they’re sometimes called, have attempted to map out the topography of the mind based on eastern philosophy, namely John C. Lily. Lily’s psychic explorations led to his development of the sensory deprivation isolation tank, in order to cultivate a dissociative state where one could detach from the body and explore the levels of satori-samadhi.
But according to Andrew Holecek, a student of Buddhist philosophy and evangelist for dream yoga, one needn’t be an ascetic or employ an expensive float tank to delve into the depths of the mind on the nightly. Instead, a little discipline and technique can allow a dreamer to travel through cosmic consciousness while still getting a good night’s rest.
Holecek says there are up to nine nocturnal states one can enter in preparation for and during dream yoga. The first of which is called “liminal dreaming,” otherwise known as hypnagogic dreaming; a state in which one is not quite awake nor asleep, but in an in-between state before dozing off.
This state is when things become blurry, but by intentionally maintaining a modicum of awareness, one is able to become active in the dream state — a practice known as lucid dreaming.
