The body has animal needs of survival and security that must be met, and then the human personality needs to establish its identity as an individual and within society, and build relationships and family life. Furthermore, the human spirit exists with the purpose of experiencing and learning from life, and of expressing itself creatively. Spirit is Love, our essential nature, an integrating force toward community and oneness.
Life has a purpose to grow, and at the highest level this manifests in our experience and expression of Love - reaching out to new places and responsibilities, seeking joy, beauty and fulfillment and overcoming the challenges that occur along the way. We are then creating our life guided by Love, and moving toward a transpersonal experience of oneness with the whole of life.
Personal growth and spiritual evolution leads to union with Spirit, realizing truth and applying that learning by co-creating a better world.
