RADIO PROGRAM No. 177 - Do I Have a Purpose?

QUESTIONER: I think many people, both young and old feel a lack of purpose today. Of course this is an age of technology, and there's often a tendency for an individual to feel that he's in a rut. What can a person do to make his life more meaningful? Does he really have a purpose?

SPEAKER: Yes, indeed. Each one of us has a purpose, and it's certainly comforting to realize that this is so. The one purpose that's common to us all is the expressing of our God-given abilities, divine qualities, to a greater extent.

Every quality that is good and right has its source in God and is possessed by every individual in his true nature as God's likeness.
