What is our purpose?

This is a passage from the book Ultimate Journey by Robert Monroe III that I found to be very inspiring regarding our purpose:


...what it is to become complete. Can you say?

We know this well. It can be said in your words.

There is no beginning, there is no end,
There is only change.


There is no teacher, there is no student,
There is only remembering.
 

There is no good, there is no evil,
There is only expression.
 

There is no union, there is no sharing,
There is only one.
 

There is no joy, there is no sadness,
There is only love.
 

There is no greater, there is no lesser,
There is only balance.
 

There is no stasis, there is no entropy,
There is only motion.
 

There is no wakefulness, there is no sleep,
There is only being.
 

There is no limit, there is no chance,
There is only a plan.


This is as we know it to be.

My interpretation:
We exist and have always existed.  Because we have always existed, we already know.  But we come into this reality through forgetfulness.  We grow and learn as we age by remembering what we already know through learning.
The One became Many out of its expression of love.  The Many seeks to remember its Source so that the Many can return to share their love through experience with the One.
We are all One, coming from the One, being in the One, returning back to the One.
We exist to experience, to express our creative needs, and to share of our selves through creation.
All experience is good.  There is only good because all existence is love.
We exist because we must experience.  Experience creates change.  Change requires motion.
We are always seeking change, to find value fulfillment.
