In the most basic sense, the purpose of life is being - as opposed to not being.
In your system of three-dimensional reality you are learning about mental energy (also called thought energy or psychic energy) and how to use it.
Knowledge about mental energy and its use is learned by constantly transforming your thoughts and emotions into physical form (your physical reality) and by then perceiving and dealing with the matter and events that are formed.
Doing this, you are supposed to get a clear picture of your inner development as it is reflected by the exterior environment.
You participate in physical reality so that you can operate and experience within this dimension. Here, you can develop your abilities, learn, create, solve problems and help others.
Matter is the shape that basic experience takes when it comes into your three-dimensional system.
Your dreams, thoughts, expectations, beliefs and emotions are literally transformed into physical matter.
HOW DOES THIS WORK?
Every nerve and fiber within the body has an unseen inner purpose.
Nerve impulses travel outward from the body, along invisible pathways, in much the same manner that they travel within the body.
These pathways are carriers of telepathic thoughts, impulses, and desires containing all the codified data necessary for translating any thought or image into physical actuality, altering seemingly objective events.
This telepathy operates constantly at an "automatic" or subconscious level, providing communication to back up sensory data. Telepathy is the glue that holds the physical universe in position, so that you can agree on the existence and properties of objects. In one respect, your body and all physical objects go flying out in all directions from the inner core of the whole self.
The physical environment is, therefore, as much a part of you as your own body.
What seems to be a perception, an objective concrete event independent from you, is instead the materialization of your own emotions, energy and mental environment. Events and objects are actually focal points where highly charged psychic impulses are transformed into something that can be physically perceived: a breakthrough into matter.
The intensity of a thought or image largely determines the immediacy of the physical materialization. All such images or thoughts are not completely materialized, in your perception, as their intensity may be too weak.
There is an inner ego, an inner self which organizes "unconscious" material.
As the outer ego manipulates within the physical environment, so the inner ego or self organizes and manipulates within inner reality.
It is this inner self, out of massive knowledge and the unlimited scope of its consciousness, that forms the physical world and provides the stimuli to keep the outer ego at the job of awareness. The inner self organizes, initiates, projects and controls the transformation of psychic energy into matter and objects.
The energy of this inner self is used by it to form a material counterpart (you). You then deal with the physical reality that is made and work out your own creative role.
In my view, conscious awareness is about closing the gap between who I believe I am and what I truly am. The gap between limiting beliefs and genuine truth; the gap between believing I am only a physical body and true infinite power within. We are creators of illusion playing the ultimate game in forgetfulness, until we choose to remember.
very interesting and thoughtfull, clearly coming from an intelligent person. i could comment for an hour on every point. let me start by saying that human beings have a physical part and a spiritual/mental part. to me our mind is divided in consciousness and unconsciousness, being the latest the one that occupies almost 95% of our mind and works in the background for or against us, depending on our attitude (positive or negative). do not believe that you rest in your dreams, 'couse your unconscious mind is working a lot more at night. the purpose of our existence is learning, and learning some more and when we believe we have learnt it all, then we have to learn much, much more, starting from modesty. every day is a lesson and lessons will repeat until we learn then. it is only when you have learnt to be patient with the traffic that we would stop running into tedious, annoying traffic jams. more later :)
