Alignment to a Greater Purpose

Another high-level distinction, the word purpose here does not refer to a life mission, quest, or a self-fulfilling prophecy. It refers to one's conscious acceptance of his or her own existence as something other than merely coincidental or insignificant. When one experiences interconnectedness, he or she experiences being a part of a distinctly sensible whole, and that suggests that each part of that whole, each piece, exists the way it does for a certain reason, a certain purpose. If this notion to you seems ridiculous, then consider which personal beliefs it may conflict with.
