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,
Do You Have a Question for Julius?

What is the Hero's Journey?
When I was in my early 20s and my father was dying, a friend gave me a painting. It depicted a river wending its way through soft mountains, with a small sailboat in the distance floating down the river. It struck me at the time as a metaphor for my life. And I was left with the sense that our life is like the journey in a fairy tale, a small vessel following the currents, passing through different terrains, in search of what’s around the next corner. The river knows where it’s going, but we on the boat do not.
On this life journey, we are each discovering the geography of our own inner world. And yet, when we take a step back and look at it from a larger perspective, that geography, and our life journey, is not so different from the basic story that humankind has been playing out since the beginning. Birth. Separation. Initiation.
Return. This shows up in our own lifecycle, and then in the countless ways that we are called to leave what is familiar to us and venture into the unfamiliar. Each of us slaying inner dragons and facing outer obstacles, to be reborn in a new version of ourselves, more true to who we are.
This death and rebirth motif shows up in stories and myths all over the world; is at the heart of some of our great religions; and animates our most powerful films.
George Lucas, struggling for years to create a film his heart had been calling him to write, was able to finish the Star Wars story while reading Joseph Campbell’s The Hero with a 1000 Faces, which lays out the basic bones of the human story. Just as the heroes and heroines in that saga overcome fear and attachment to the familiar and rise up to be of real service to the Universe, we are each doing the same thing in our own universe.
Each of us is rising above our self-imposed limitations and outer challenges to expand our sense of self and walk our path of destiny. Joseph Campbell and the Hero’s Journey gave us a map to guide us, and signposts along the way, as we take our journey.
