At the end of the day, each one of us needs to ask himself/herself, "What is the end goal for me? Why am I involved in all these? What is the purpose of life?"
The end goal should be to become perfect as our Father in heaven is perfect. This is the ultimate driving force. On a daily basis, we should see ourselves as pilgrims on a journey to Paradise.
There should be a motivation within us to build a real, lively and productive personal relationship with our Heavenly, Paradise Father. And this is possible through relationship with his spirit within us, the still small voice. This can be an amazing reality through constant conversation with the Voice Within, "God the Father in you"! And such a beautiful relationship produces love and service to others!
If you do not focus on the end goal, you are bound to suffer confusion and be crippled by vanities. Real fulfillment will become elusive. Lasting values and deep joy may wonder away from you.
