It's not something given to us, but rather something we give the world.
It's not something revealed to us; it's something revealed by us and through us.
No cell in the body is intended to exist on its own.
Every cell is created to be part of a collaborative matrix, in which it is naturally guided to work with other cells to foster the health of the organ they're part of.
And of course that is a diseased condition, whether in the body or in a civilization.
not to look to ourselves to find ourselves, because that's not where we are.
I don't think of purpose as something we "find," I think of it as something we "are." Language is a limitation here, tempting us to think that our purpose is something separate from, somehow outside our being.
