Q: When I try to tune into what is my purpose, I get conflicting voices that each tell me something else. How do I discern my true Soul Purpose?
A: As we have discussed in the Purpose Workshop, there are several orders of purpose. You have to penetrate to the core, where you can ascertain your Soul’s genuine purpose. We recommend that you take this workshop, which you can purchase from our Public Webinars page on our website, to help you tease out what is the Soul’s purpose from the other levels that each play a “purposive role” in the expression and concretization of your Soul’s Great Work.
As an example of some of these perspectives of purpose, let us consider what purpose looks like from several different vantage points.
- Ego – From the standpoint of the ego, purpose looks like survival of the body and fulfillment of desires and needs
- Self – From the viewpoint of the Self, purpose appears to be the creation and completion of goals that promote career success, personal fulfillment and growth. For individuals who take the Third Planetary Initiation, this purpose changes, and takes the form of carrying out the directives of the Higher Self.
- Life (Expressed Soul Purpose) – Life is seen in this view as the expression of the Soul’s gifts, its love, and its wisdom in everyday living—in relationships, in career, and as its active ministry and service to others.
- Spiritual Destiny (Intrinsic Soul Purpose) – This is the track of the Soul’s development plan, which comes into view in the higher unconscious behind the Soul. It aims for completion of spiritual evolution, with the actualization of all spiritual and personal potentials.
- Mastery – This takes the form of service to other living beings from a universal platform: to uplift their awareness into the state of enlightenment and Realization, initiate them into spiritual practices, empower them to use their abilities and gifts, guide them on the inner Planes, teach them about their spiritual laws and the content of the Path, counsel them, heal them, purify them with the Divine Light, and actively transform their Souls along their track of spiritual evolution.
You discover your expressed Soul Purpose through dialog with your Soul. You discover your spiritual destiny through meditating on the higher unconscious behind your Soul to discern the track your Soul must travel, and the nodes of ministry and mastery that are embedded on that Path—the thrones, stars, crowns, wheels, and forms that become visible as the Soul transmutes and integrates the karmic accretions that veil them.
Those who complete one of our intermediate meditation classes, the in person Mudrashram® Master Course in Meditation and the by-mail and online Accelerated Meditation Program are eligible to take the Mudrashram® Advanced Course in Meditation, where we guide you along the track of your Soul’s spiritual destiny, and show you that pathway behind each higher octave of being and point out its stage of culmination—the state of Liberation.
Those who have difficulties visualizing the content of their higher unconscious may opt to obtain a Soul Purpose Reading from us. In this reading, we can give you the details on the discrete stations on the Path ahead of you where the Soul has been given a form of service, and reveal to you where they are on the Path ahead of you.
