Answering the question about our purpose is a fundamental one for Human Beings who understand there is a Right Way to do anything. You get the understanding that this is true when you obtain True Knowledge of Self. Your Life Purpose is a neutral result when you study True Knowledge of Self. As do everything else in life, your life purpose is unveiled by degrees; degrees of your understanding of True Knowledge of Self.
Mine is "to make my maximum contribution to the Total Uplift of Afrikan people: 'Those at home as well as those abroad.'"
Knowledge of self unveiled the fact that my race is under oppression in a government that was founded and is governed with an ideology called White Supremacy. Once this fact is seen and accepted, I wanted to change our condition from a state of oppression to that of a Free, self determined people. In looking for a way to bring about the change i found the path that will never fail: That is a Right Path: Hence "there is a right way to do anything." The Path is a Spiritual Path.
It also unveiled the fact that i have certain skills that can be utilized to free Black people from the oppression by sharing the degrees of understanding of the knowledge i have - the understanding gives me the wisdom of how to use my knowledge of self to fulfill my purpose..
I prayed and meditated on a desire to live my life; earn my living by serving Black people. I have written and published 15 books; i have "published" approximately 600 others and dedicated self to securing Reparations "to begin the healing process" that will finally free Black people [i.e. - in example].
Thank you for the question. I am sure my answer begged many more. Time limitations will not be practical to give more in the forum. However, i have a new book that will be released on April 29, 2010 called "THE ACQUISITION AND PROPER USE OF POWER...." It addresssed my methodology in more detail....................Khalifah
