Our Purpose in Life

"as God's purpose is to glorify the individual man (or soul) in the earth, so the highest purpose of an individual soul or entity is to glorify the Creative Energy or God in the earth." Cayce (338-3)

"Thus the purpose of each experience is that the entity may magnify and glorify that which is good. For, good is of the one source, God, and is eternal. Then as an individual entity magnifies that which is good, and minimizes that which is false, it grows in grace, in knowledge, in understanding." Cayce (2599-1)

"That is the purpose for which each entity - yea, this entity - enters the material experience; that the glory of the Lord, as manifested in the entity itself, may be magnified in the earth." Cayce (3459-1)



"The purpose in life, then, is not the gratifying of appetites nor of any selfish desires, but it is that the entity, the soul, may make the earth, where the entity finds its consciousness, a better place in which to live." Cayce (4047-2)

"Know that whatever experience ye have in the material sojourns for a purpose. Know that it is not by chance that ye are in a material or earthly consciousness in the present. For know that all activities of the mind, of the body, must be based upon SPIRITUAL things." Cayce (1754-1)

"For this entity should comprehend and know, and never forget, that life and its experiences are only what one puts into same! And unless the activities, the thoughts are continuously constructive, and the experience well-balanced, the entity cannot, will not fulfill the purpose for which it came into the present experience." Cayce (1537-1)

"For, the experience or sojourn in the earth is not by chance, but the natural spiritual and soul evolution of the entity; that it may be aware of its relationships to God - through its relationships to its fellow men; recognizing in each soul, as well as in self, those possibilities, those opportunities, those duties, those obligations that are a portion of each soul-entity's manifesting in a material plane." Cayce (2271-1)

"Each soul . . . has a definite job to do. But ye alone may find and do that job!" Cayce (2823-1)

"In giving the interpretation of these records, the intent and purpose should be for the entity to approach same with the idea, with the ideal of using that which may be helpful in making for soul development.

"For only fame or fortune, position or renown, is material; and they that look only for material benefits, or for an easy way, or for an excuse, become as stumbling blocks for themselves.

"The purpose of the entrance of each soul is that it may develop towards being as one with, being a companion with Creative Forces or - as commonly called - God." Cayce (1221-1)

"The spirit is the life. Then each phase of the experience of the entity must be of the spiritual import in its very nature, if it is to live, to be the fulfilling of its purpose - to bring peace and harmony, for which purpose it IS in existence! It must be constructive in the very nature and the very desires, without thought of self being the one glorified in or by same! Rather the GLORY is to the influence or force that PROMPTS same!" Cayce (1579-1)

"There is today, every day, set before thee good and evil, life and death - choose thou. For only self can separate you from the love of the Father. For it should be manifested to thee that thou art conscious in a living world, aware of suffering, of sorrow, of joy, of pleasure. These, to be sure, are the price one pays for having will, knowledge. But let that knowledge be spent in a way and manner to help others. For as ye do to thy fellow man ye do to thy Maker." Cayce (3581-1)

"Each soul's entrance into material consciousness should represent to the entity the awareness that a universal consciousness, God, is aware of the entity's purposes, the entity's aims. And this consciousness represents an opportunity for the entity, in the material experience, to become a channel to glorify that purpose, that cause." Cayce (2622-1)

"Do not make haste other than slowly in gaining the perfect understanding of the purpose of life in this mundane sphere; for while it should be the ideal of every individual to succeed ... fame and fortune often take wings unless same are the result and not the end of a life spent in understanding what life's all about!" Cayce (5616-1)

"What, then, is the purpose of the entity's activity in the consciousness of mind, matter, spirit in the present? That it, the entity, may know itself to be itself and part of the Whole; not the Whole but one with the Whole; and thus retaining its individuality, knowing itself to be itself, yet one with the purposes of the First Cause that called it, the entity, into being, into the awareness, into the consciousness of itself. That is the purpose, that is the cause of being.

"In what manner, in what way may I apply myself as an entity, as an individual, to fill that purpose whereunto the First Cause has its influence, its way, its purpose with me?

"For thy physical self may only see the reflection of good, while thy spiritual self may be that good in the activities of thy fellow man in such measures that ye bring - what?

"Ever, ever, the fruits of the Spirit in their awareness; long-suffering, brotherly love, patience, kindness, gentleness, hope and faith!

"Then so live, so act, so think that others seeing thy good works, thy hopes that ye bring, thy faith that ye manifest, thy patience that ye show, may also glorify Him." Cayce (826-11)

"Then what is the purpose of each soul entering a material manifestation? That it may be a witness-bearer for and unto the glory of the Father which has been manifested through the Son, even Jesus; in making then those activities in which such may be the purpose, the desire of the individual entity.

"It is not then that there may be the satisfying of the mental or material body, or mind. It is not to the indulgence of, nor to the glory of self alone, but that - through the very activities of the body and mind - the fruits of the spirit of truth may be manifested in the material experience.

"These truths, these experiences, only find expression in relationships with others. Just as He hath given, "Inasmuch as ye have done it unto the least of these, thy brethren, ye have done it unto me - inasmuch as ye did not these things unto thy brethren, ye did them not unto me."

"Hence in the relationships, the meetings with others in whatever form or manner, such are not coincidental but are rather as purposeful experiences.

"Then there must be the filling of the purpose, if there will be the glorifying of His love, His truths, His presence, by that done to and through the activities with the fellow man - whoever, wherever such may be; in such a way and manner that His glory is made manifest in thy dealings with thy fellow man.

"Look then into thine own heart, thine own mind. See thyself, as it were, pass by. What is thy desire? What is thy purpose? What - and who - is thy ideal?

"What gave He as the whole law? To love thy God with all thy mind, thy body, thy purpose; and thy neighbor as thyself! This is the whole law.

"These are the principles, these are the basic truths upon which joy, peace and understanding may be thine; and thy life, thy activities, thy associations with others will ever be beautiful, peaceful, harmonious." Cayce (1722-1)

"An experience, then, is not only a happening, but what is the reaction in your own mind? What does it do to you to make your life, your habits, your relationships to others of a more helpful nature, with a more hopeful attitude?

"These are the criterions for every individual's experience - sincerity of purpose, of desire; putting the whole law into effect in the activities - which is to love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, thy mind, thy body, and thy neighbor as thyself.

"This is the whole law. All the other things given or written are only the interpreting of same.

"Then what does such a proclaiming preclude? From what basis is the reasoning drawn? What is the purpose of an individual experience of an entity or soul into the earth at any given period?

"These answered then give a background for the interpreting of why." Cayce (1567-2)

"Look within. For thy body is indeed the temple of the living God. Thy purpose in life, in the experience in the earth, is to magnify that glory which may be thine when ye have attained to same." Cayce (3457-1)

"Hence as has been given, know thyself, in whom thou believest! Not of earthly, not of material things, but mental and spiritual - and why! And by keeping a record of self - not as a diary, but thy purposes, what you have thought, what you have desired, the good that you have done - we will find this will bring physical and mental reactions that will be in keeping with the purposes for which each soul enters a material manifestation." Cayce (830-3)

"Know that the purpose for which each soul enters a material experience is that it may be as a light unto others; not as one boastful of self or of self's abilities in any phase of the experience, whether mental or material, but living, being in spirit that which is ideal and not idealistic alone, nor the unattainable.

"For, as He hath given - if ye would know the Spirit, or God, search for Him; for happy ye will find Him.

"Thus - in that consciousness of daily living and being that which is in keeping with the ideal - life and its problems becomes not a burden, but opportunities - for the greater expressions and expansions of self in knowing that as ye sow daily the fruit of the spirit, ye need not worry nor fret thyself as to its growth. God giveth the increase. Hence be not weary in well-doing." Cayce (641-6)

"Know that the purpose for which each soul enters a material experience is that it may be as a light unto others; not as one boastful of self or of self's abilities in any phase of the experience, whether mental or material, but living, being in spirit that which is ideal and not idealistic alone, nor the unattainable." Cayce (641-6)

"Know that it is not all just to live - not all just to be good, but good for something; that ye may fulfill that purpose for which ye have entered this experience." Cayce (2030-1)

"For the very fact that ye find yourself conscious of being alive, of being capable of suffering disappointments, capable of being aware of missing something within thine own experience in the present - disappointed in people, disillusioned with your own family - should make you aware that God is mindful of thee and that thou hast forgotten God. Then in thy spiritual life, in thy spiritual purpose lies the answer in thy problems, physical, mental, material, spiritual. For when ye have set thine own house in order, regardless of what others may say, begin to read first the 19th of Exodus and the 5th verse, and see in whom ye may trust, where thy mind and thy soul may find rest. Consider what spirit, what purpose, what desire must occupy thy mind." Cayce (3506-1)

"Each soul's entrance into material consciousness should represent to the entity the awareness that a universal consciousness, God, is aware of the entity's purposes, the entity's aims. And this consciousness represents an opportunity for the entity, in the material experience, to become a channel to glorify that purpose, that cause." Cayce (2622-1)

". . . unless each soul entity . . . makes the world better, that corner or place of the world a little better, a little bit more hopeful, a little bit more patient, showing a little more of brotherly love, a little more of kindness, a little more of longsuffering - by the very words and deeds of the entity, the life is a failure; especially so far as growth is concerned. Though you gain the whole world, how little ye must think of thyself if ye lose the purpose for which the soul entered this particular sojourn!" Cayce (3420-1)

"Know that ye are going through a period of testing. Remain true to all that has been committed to thee, and know that each day is an opportunity, and an experience. Speak a word for thy ideal. Not as to force an issue but ever constructive. Sow the seed of truth, the seed of the spirit. God will give the increase." Cayce (3245-1)
