“Each of us has a unique part to play in the healing of the world.”
Yes, I believe we are beings with unique parts to play. I think there are many basic reasons for our being here that are common to all of us. I also believe that there is a reason for each of us that is a paramount purpose, something that is ours alone to accomplish.
I think we are here to love and be loved, to work, contribute, and serve to make the world a safe, healthy, peaceful home for all. How we do this is determined by our skills and abilities, education and beliefs, dreams and aspirations. Some may do many things and others may have few accomplishments. Some may make big important discoveries or inventions and others may live quiet unassuming lives that seem small in comparison. But all of us are needed in some way.
As for our paramount purpose, it may be of major importance for all the people of the world or for just one person. Some may know what their purpose is and some may not. Some might know the what and when and where and who of their purpose, however, I believe most do not know. What we know or don’t know doesn’t matter. We could accomplish our assigned task early in life or on the last day of our life. I doubt anyone leaves this earth without fulfilling their purpose.
I know what my basic responsibilities are,
but do I know what my principal purpose is?
Nope, haven’t a clue!
Do you know yours?

I love what you had to say here, and I agree with you. Maybe we don’t need to know which is the moment where we make the difference. Maybe some do every day, maybe some do just once in their lifetime, or maybe it is their child that will, or someone they have touched or a life they’ve saved that will go on to do more good things. I know it is a chain reaction, and I know we are all a part of the chain. And I know the things you share make a difference in my life! This was a great quote to share with us!
Thank you for your kind and always encouraging words, Josie. I wonder if in Heaven we get to know how we accomplished our purpose?
Nice post Patricia. Do I know my purpose? Nope, but I keep trying.
I am not sure we are supposed to know. Like you, I keep trying.
