The purpose of your life is for your soul to fulfill itself in wisdom. Everything you have ever done was for the sake of knowing. Whatever judgement or limitation you place upon another, so shall you limit and judge yourself. Everything is an experience that provides wisdom.
This history of your world is understood by you only in reference to what has been understood by those who assign themselves to be the ones deciding for you what history should be. You don’t know your history, you know the metaphors for it, you know the aspects of it, but in fact what you are doing is piercing together a puzzle with many missing pieces and assuming it is whole.
