Part 1 - True Purpose
“Your significance will remain forever obscure to you, but you may assume that you are fulfilling your purpose if you apply yourself to converting all your experience to the highest advantage of others.” ~ Dr. Richard Buckminster Fuller, Critical Path
When we drop a stone in the water, we observe a circular wave moving outwardly from the point where the stone impacted the water. This outwardly expanding circular wave is generated at ninety degrees to the line of travel of the stone.
These right angle effects are precessional effects. Precession is the effect of bodies in motion on other bodies in motion. The Sun and Earth are both in motion. Despite the gravitational pull of the Sun upon the Earth, precession makes Earth orbit around the sun - at ninety degrees to the direction of the gravitational pull.
Similarly, as bees enter flower blossoms in the pursuit of collecting nectar to make honey, it's bumbling entry-exit of one flower blossom, then another; triggers-off cross-pollination at ninety degrees to the bees' operational axis. This precessional effect sustains the successful regeneration of life growth on our Planet Earth.
Just as bees are honey bees, humans are money-bees! In the pursuit of completing the required daily tasks to make money, do you not think that humans too are causing precessional effects at ninety degrees to the axis of their money-making pursuits?
For the bee, the purpose of collecting nectar is to make honey. Nonetheless, for Planet Earth, the bees' TRUE PURPOSE is the successful regeneration of life growth. So too for humans. As far as humans are concerned, our evident purpose is to collect money to sustain our living. Our TRUE PURPOSE is the successful regeneration of life growth on our Planet Earth.
In its daily bumbling honey-making pursuit, is the bee aware of its True Purpose? Similarly, in the human's busy-ness of money-making is he fully aware of his True Purpose? No.
If our True Purpose will remain forever obscure, how do we fulfill our True Purpose?
"Precession is the effect of bodies in motion on other bodies in motion". So, remain in motion. Keep going, keep doing that which contributes to the successful regeneration of life growth on our Planet Earth. In your life's experiences, you have accumulated much knowledge and skills. Use these to ADD VALUE to this world; then you may assume that you are fulfilling your life purpose.
