The whole purpose of life is to make God a reality.
-- Hazrat Pir-o-Murshid Inayat Khan
Now life is nothing but God, and God's purpose in the creation is to know God's own Self and
love God's own Self and express God's own Self. This is the supreme purpose and the essence of purpose: it
is the seed of the purpose of every individual entity taking form on any plane.
-- Murshid Samuel L Lewis
