What Is Everyone's Purpose in Life?
Jose Silva's experiences - and the great success he was guided to achieve despite his humble beginnings - convinced him that he understood what our purpose in life is.
It is not complicated, not difficult to understand. The only question is how you can best carry out your assignment. Even that is not difficult a difficult question to answer:
Just look around you. What problems do you see? Okay, now - pick one, and get to work.
That is all there is to it. You don't have to like it; you don't have to enjoy it; you don't have to get rich doing it; you don't have to impress anybody. All you have to do is: Correct problems.
In this article, Jose Silva explains why he felt so strongly about this.

Because of my experiences, I believe that we were sent here to planet earth to correct problems and to help complete the job that the Creator started.
But not everybody agrees with me.
So why am I convinced that my belief is correct?
It is because of my experiences.
For some reason, I have always been interested in solving problems. Whenever I see that something needs to be done, I want to do it.
That was how our research on the mind began.
I started studying psychology, and applying what I learned.
Before long, I was seeing results.
That's when my neighbors started asking me to work with their children. Eventually they began to ask me to also teach my techniques to them.
Of course, I helped them. I helped everyone who asked for my help.
And I never charged for my help. I never even let them reimburse me for my expenses.
Can you imagine someone working for a year, two years, five years, ten years, or more, without getting anything out of it? Who would do something like that?
Why would I do something like that?
I asked myself those same questions. My research was helping a lot of people, but it was taking me away from my family and my business. It was costing me money, and depriving my children of a full time father.
So why should I keep doing the research?
Actually, I didn't just decide to keep on doing it.
In fact, I quit two times.
Each time, within two hours, something happened to
get me to continue.
The first time I quit it was 2 o'clock in the morning. Shortly after going to bed, I had a dream. There was bright light, and two sets of numbers: 2-3-2 and 2-7-2.
Eventually, late in the day, a friend who was helping me found a lottery ticket with one of those numbers. Of course we purchased it. It paid $10,000.
I felt like this was a message from the other side, from high intelligence, telling me to keep working.
I kept working.
The next time I quit was on a rainy Saturday morning. As I sat there pondering my decision to quit, my son ran in with some rolled up papers in his hand. I noticed something strange about them immediately:
Even though it was raining outside, the papers were dry.
I unrolled the papers. On the top was a picture of the face of Christ.
I felt like He was scolding me for stopping. After all, hadn't I been given $10,000 a few years before, to encourage me to continue my work?
That "personal visit" was the last incentive I ever needed. I kept working, and am still working today, to show people how to actually use more of their minds to help themselves and their loved ones.
So, based on my own personal experience, and of my observations of thousands of other people, I believe that when we are centered, then we are guided by high intelligence on the other side.
They tell us what to do.
They don't speak to us of course; they are spiritual beings, not physical.
They send us ideas, when we are at level.
Our job is to recognize the ideas that come from the other side. We must find a way to distinguish those ideas from our own ideas.
A sure way to tell is by noticing the results that you get.
When you are working on a project, you will probably encounter obstacles.
The first time you encounter an obstacle, notice how long it takes you to deal with it.
Then the next obstacle you encounter, how long does it take to deal with it? If it takes twice as long, this might be a sign from the other side that you are going in the wrong direction.
If it takes half as long to solve the problem, then this could be a sign that you are moving in the right direction.
Keep going. When you encounter another obstacle, does it take more time or less time to deal with it?
If the obstacles continue to become more and more difficult, and take longer to remove, then you are probably going in the wrong direction. If you take two steps backward for every one step forward, you are losing ground.
Enter your level. Analyze the project. Figure out what you must do so that you take two steps forward for every one step backward. That is the way most projects go: you encounter a problem, take a step back and then go forward again.
Then do something different.
When you are on the right track, your efforts will be rewarded. When you are going the wrong way, you will encounter more obstacles.
Take the path of least resistance.
During our research, I did not always know why I was doing certain things, or where it would lead. I just continued to meditate, to work hard, and to take the path of least resistance.
I always like "lucky coincidences." What that means to me is that God is helping without showing His hand. Now, however, we can see it all. We know how to get help from high intelligence, and know that we are getting it.
When good things happened during my research, I did more of what I had been doing. When things did not go well, I tried a different path. It paid off then, and that approach still pays off for me today.
That is not to say that you should be quick to quit. Not at all. We have to prove that we are willing to put forth the effort, that we will accept the responsibility that is given to us.
But we don't batter down doors. After you have made a good effort, over a period of time, to open a new door in your life, and the door still won't open, then back up, take a deep breath, enter your level, and look around to see if there is another door.
When you take that one step backwards, you may find a way to take even more than two steps forward before you encounter another problem that you must solve.
Eventually, when you continue to follow the guidance from the other side, you will find that you do not encounter any more obstacles but go straight to your goal.
It does not take a great deal of wisdom to be successful when you follow this procedure. All that you really have to do is to do what you are guided to do.
There was an old joke many years ago. A man went to his doctor with a complaint. The man raised his arm above his head and told the doctor, "Doctor, it hurts when I do that."
The doctor's solution was very simple: "Then don't do that."
If you are having problems in your life, then "don't do that." Enter your level and figure out what you can change. Then make the change, and evaluate the results.
When you find something that makes your life better, then do it.
We all want to be happy.
My experience has taught me that happiness comes from solving problems. That's what we were sent here to do.
When we do it, we will be well rewarded.
So, enter your level, figure out what you should be doing. Then go do it, and notice the results. If you encounter too many obstacles, and they keep getting bigger and more difficult, then enter your level again and figure out something else to try.
When things are going well, and you are receiving rewards and incentives, and you are happy, then you know that you are doing what you were sent here to do, and that is to make this planet a better place to live.
Take it from me: In my 80 years on this planet, I have found that the people who watch out only for themselves might accumulate a lot of things; but the people who work to solve problems feel a lot better about themselves, and are much happier.
