42. Purpose Of The Soul
Here we will explore the purpose of life from a higher perspective.
Although the topic of purpose of life have been explored many times, often it is helpful to approach the same questions from different angles. This will help one to gain just that more piece to complete that mysterious puzzle which is life.
Here we will approach the purpose of life from a spiritual perspective. Here we will explore the way in which the mind and the world works to find the clues to divine intention behind their designs.
Hi I am Jonny John,
Welcome to the Spiritual Journey series.
In the past, I have create videos on how to transform the suffering states of the mind to create greater happiness. I did not want to talk much about the spiritual aspect so that one can focus on the practice rather than the story.
But this time, the self-transformative techniques will be taught with a spiritual backdrop, to understand how our existence, how our suffering states of the mind relates to the journey of the soul....
So this time, I will introduce concepts such as reincarnation, spiritual planning, to give you a bigger picture of where you are, and I believe this can motivate one even more to realize the importance of transforming the mind.
Much will be taught from my own experience, and I will be guiding you towards discovering yourself, rather than telling you who you are.
So in this video I will go deeper into the purpose of life.
To take you to see the clues of the blueprint of Creation.
So let's begin
On my journey of self-discovery, I realized that although we may all go in different paths, we all share the same universal destination.
So today I want to talk about that destination. TO talk about the purpose of life in a deeper sense, not about what jobs we can do, what kind of people we should be with....these are just the choices you can make in life.
Today I want to talk about the purpose of life in a deeper sense - from the spiritual perspective. To talk about why we were created to experience the reality that we are experiencing now...so that you may find the clues to the blue print of creation.
To find our destination as divinely intended.
Before I begin, I just want to let you know that my goal is not for you to believe what I say. But rather for you to use my experiences as clues to help you find your own truth, your own path So let's begin.
I want to reads something that I have written which I think is helpful to open your mind.
Through studying Creation.
One can learn about the Creator.
As Creation will always reflect the nature of the Creator.
Like studying a piece of music.
The intention of the composer can be heard.
Like studying a piece of rock.
The nature of the mountain is known.
Thus if we wish to learn about the Creator,
We can study the nature of our minds.
So basically that's my approach to understanding the mysteries of the Universe.
To know the Creator through studying its Creations
For instance, we can study why is it that our minds are designed in such a way that it is now. With its abilities to perceive emotions to think, to experience
It is by studying the nature of these inner mechanisms, that can bring us closer to see the Creator's intention in its designs.
So let us study the mechanism of the mind that we have at the moment, to find the clues for that blueprint of Creation.
And we can do this first, is by asking ourselves the question
"What do we desire in life?
We will no doubt all reach the same answer, which is for the experience of happiness, of greater happiness.
This is the same question as
what are we designed to desire for in life?
(It is) For greater happiness!
The blueprint for Creation seems hidden.
But it was there inside....all along..
That is why the desire for happiness resonates deep within the mind, body and spirit.
But some of us may overlook it,
Because it's so obvious,
That we can end up over thinking the answer.
So there are many answers to the mysteries of the universe that can be discovered within
If we look inwards, and tune into our feelings and intuition.
So realize that greater happiness is the destination.
And realign your path and choices in life to reach there.
Not to live towards what others expect of you.
But towards what makes you happy.
For you are the creator of your life.
That's how you reach greater fulfillment
But we have just brushed upon the surface.
And peeked at just a little bit of that blueprint of Creation.
To reveal more of it behind the darkness,
One would have to explore the question of
What is happiness?
So let's talk about what is happiness
If we study what happiness is, we can find many types of happiness
Temporary happiness, excitement, addiction and so forth.
The seeker who wishes to know more about the blueprint of creation.
Will thus have to explore what happiness is
To see how it's made, how it can be achieved, and the purpose of the design.
So let us talk about what types of happiness there are in life
So what is happiness?
To study happiness, we can study what happiness is not.
Which is ..unhappiness.
We then can explore that whole spectrum of the state of mind which is unhappiness.
These will include all the negatives states of the mind, emotions, and the body, such as anger, as impatience, as our fears, discomfort and the list goes on.
We can then ask ourselves, what is the cause for these negative states of the mind?
What we will discover that whenever we are in a negative state of mind, we are in a state of Rejection.
For instance, anger is a state of rejection towards others, or ourselves.
Fear is a state of rejection towards a situation or possibility of an outcome.
Impatience is the rejection of the present moment.
Basically, Unhappiness is essentially the state of Rejection.
And from the state of Rejection comes many different forms of unhappiness.
So to know what the experience of Happiness really is.
We can simply look at what is the polar opposite of the state off Rejection.
And that is the state of Acceptance.
Happiness is the state of Acceptance.
When we are in the state of Acceptance, we are in the state of happiness and in that spectrum of happiness we will find the states of compassion, love, courage wisdom and so forth.
Now let us ask the question
How can we produce this state of Self-Acceptance?
There are many ways to be happy
Whether it is buying nice clothes, a new gadget, eating delicious food, watching an interesting movie.
But realize that the state of happiness produced by external triggers will always be temporary because the happiness created in such a way will last for as long as the experience gives us.
So a more serious seeker would then ask,
How can I develop greater happiness which is beyond temporary happiness.
How can I develop everlasting happiness?
Happiness that comes naturally within, Happiness that does not require an external trigger for it to be experienced.
And that will only leave us with one way
Which is the journey of transforming the Suffering states of the mind.
For instance, to address our fears, anger, impatience...basically to transform the state of Rejection into the state of Acceptance.
This is the bigger picture
This is the bigger work.
The journey of becoming ever more Self-Knowing, ever more Self-Accepting
This is The Soul Journey
So if you wish to reach inner fulfilment , Hold the intent to accept all there is, and let that intent be a guiding light to take you through the darkness and towards your destination, towards Self-Transformation, towards Enlightenment.
Now some people may be content and settle with temporary happiness.
But there may be some people who wish for something more.
So If what is said here resonates deep with you, then that's great.
Now that the destination is known.
The serious seeker would then ask the question
What is the way to this destination?
How do I transform Unhappiness into Happiness?
Or more accurately
How do I transform the states of Self-Rejection into the states of Self-Acceptance?
And the answer is through the spiritual lessons that we have brought into this life time.
Which I will talk about more in detail later.
But first we need to understand more about the soul journey.
So that we can better understand what these spiritual lessons actually are.
So let us direct our attention to the question
If the blueprint for creation is for us to reach for greater happiness.
What is the purpose for that purpose?
Why is it that our purpose is designed to transform the states of Rejection into Acceptance?
For what purpose does this achieve?
It's by exploring the possible answers to this question that more clues to the blueprint of Creation can be revealed.
So that we can understand deeper about the soul journey.
So today we have talked about the purpose of life.
And later we will talk about the purpose of the soul journey.

Path Of Creator
The Soul Journey In Relation To The Path Of Creator
What is the purpose of the soul?
When we approach a question in which we cannot prove without a doubt, for instance with measurements and science, the only way is to tune into our hearts and see how it answers that question.
And that answer will change the more we Know ourselves. Because the more we know ourselves, the more we will become more in tune with what the heart wishes to commmnicate with us.
So at the end of the day, what creates progress in life is not to dwell in stories, but to do the greater work - to develop Self-Knowing so that the truths to the stories can become ever refined, to develop Self-Transformation so that we can experience greater happiness.
