The Purpose of Life – 2

Darwin described the physical evolution of life. But he left out the more important aspect: the spiritual evolution of life. Without including both, science and religion argue forever. But both are right: each simply sees a part of the puzzle.

Many mystics and sages demonstrate their knowledge of spiritual evolution, the Divine Plan for life. Moreover, many also demonstrate their awareness that spiritual evolution takes a metaphorically-circular path with a descent and ascent. In Jacob’s vision of the evolution of consciousness, the circle becomes a ladder.

“I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world, and go to the Father.” (1)
