This is the final video of a 3-part series called “Finding Myself” – The fundamentals of enlightenment.

In the attempt to come to know who I really am (self-realization), it is necessary to answer three questions:  1) What is my essence?  2) What is my position? – meaning where do I fit in the big picture, and 3) What is my natural function?

Everyone wonders if they have some higher purpose. The answer is yes and the quest to discover it takes us on an amazing journey. A significant part of our seeking self-realization, is to find an answer to the question “what is the natural and eternal function of the soul itself?”

The answer is tied to the need we all have to both love and to be loved.  This need arises from our deeper self and is a spiritual need. It cannot be completely and unlimitedly fulfilled through the material world or material relationships. It is after all completely spiritual.

The awakening of spiritual love is our higher purpose and is the ultimate spiritual experience.
