A Person’s Purpose

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: How is it possible to discover and know our purpose?

Answer: Anyone can learn his destiny through the higher program of nature that governs our world.

When the person learns and explores this program, he gradually begins to feel his spiritual uniqueness: what his personal task is in the present incarnation, the fate of his previous one, his inner characteristics, nature, motivations, and drives, why he was created this way and developed under the influence of the environment precisely in a manner like this and not another.

And then he understands how to be integrated in this system and manage it. He explores everything through his inner personal characteristics. That is the way he enters into the “control center” with his desires and intentions.

Question: For example, I have a desire to enjoy food.

Answer: That is physical life. We are talking about what is found above it. Everything that is found in the framework of our lives—food, sex, family, wealth, power, and knowledge—is relevant to our world.

And there are motives and desires that are directed above physical substance: attaining the meaning of life, the meaning of existence, the upper world, Ein Sof (Infinity), and not merely entering into the higher management system, but also controlling it, seeing its eternal flow.
From the Daily Kabbalah Lesson 9/20/15

  1. Very Perfect. Thank you. Personally I would say “understanding” that higher system and its purpose, which we all hope exists, would be more important and interesting than controlling it. Thanks again.
