The Four Purposes of Life

  • Sep 12, 2011

Most of us tend to focus our energy in one or maybe two avenues. We see things in a very either/or way. Either we make family a priority or we build a successful career. Either we make money or we follow our calling. Balancing what we have is difficult enough so doing it all seems rather unrealistic.

The Four Purposes of Life tells us that not only is having it all possible but having a balance between all the parts of our lives is crucial. The book looks at the four purposes and is taught in stages or levels. For instance, in the first stage, we learn all the basics such as self- discipline, well-being, money, intuition, feeling, courage, love, knowing yourself, etc. From here, the other three purposes are more about finding your calling and providing service.

I'm thinking that the average person would be lucky to gain even a foundational understanding of half of the basics. Mastering these would probably take more than a single lifetime. I guess it's a journey not a destination.
