Putting the Theory of Purpose into Practice

In order to put the Theory of Purpose into practice we must understand the elements of the theory itself (from "The Alchemy of Purpose"); The Three Elements of Mind, The Three Elements of Purpose, The Two Elements of Meaning, The Six Elements of Life,  and the Four Levels of Purpose.

The Three Elements of Mind

Thought – What we think we create

Belief – What we believe we attract

Imagination – What we imagine we become.

The Three Elements of Purpose

Manifestation - (What we do) – The choices we make and what is created.

Expression - (How we do it) – The expression of our choice. Our actions.

Intention (Why we do it) – The intention of our choice.

The Two Elements of Meaning

Conflict – The external and internal struggle with our purpose.

Resolution – The only way we grow and derive meaning for our existence.

The Six Elements of Life


Career – What we do for a living is an expression of our purpose.

Finance – The income we acquire in order to manifest our purpose.

Health – The depth of love for our self is revealed by how we care for our physical and mental health.

Relationships – The strength of our relationships depends on the relationship we have with our self.

Spirituality – Our connection to a higher power and where we derive our purpose.

Personal Growth – The Change we go through when living our purpose.

The Four Levels of Purpose

These are the Four Levels of Purpose we grow into and work our way through, from the Material level towards our highest calling, the Enlightened Level. 


The Material Purpose – We seek happiness in materialism. We spend our life acquiring sufficient wealth to provide not only financial stability, but the ability to afford the luxuries of life that we derive pleasure from.

The Ego Purpose – This is the level most associate with "purpose" because this level is about "doing what we love" to satisfy the ego, in the traditional thought that if we could only live life following our passion and fulfilling our dreams, we will be happy and content.

The Altruistic Purpose – We find deeper meaning being in service to others. We are no longer concerned with only satisfying our personal need and desire to live life with passion and singular purpose, but connecting more with others and directing it to be in service to them.

The Enlightened Purpose – We seek a connection with God, thus fulfilling our greatest purpose and highest calling. We realize that life isn't about ourselves at all, nor is it just about a connection with others, but rather being in a continual state of connection with everything in the Universe where our self is dissolved into the whole.














Love - Love is the energy behind our purpose and it is what binds all the elements together. This is what allows our purpose to manifest itself in our life. Having all the elements of purpose aligned and doing everything out of love is what transforms our lives.
