Between Super Bowl XLVIII and the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics, Americans are finding great opportunity to satisfy their hunger for dramatic athletic competition. Why is it such a great thrill? Is it seeing the successful execution of a well-laid plan? Is it the experience of your tribe defeating its enemies? I say it is the closest many people get to an experience of their greater purpose, the reason for which they came into this world.
Step 71 “I am here to serve a greater purpose” of Steps to Knowledge declares “You are here to serve a greater purpose, beyond mere survival and the gratification of things you may think you want.” In my life, I have seen many athletes reach the highest pinnacles of their sport. Out of those many occasions, I have never heard an athlete say “I came into the world to win this game.” Out of those many occasions, I have never heard an athlete say “It is my purpose in life to run faster than others, or jump higher than others, or demonstrate more strength than others.” Out of those many occasions, I have never heard an athlete say “It was for this that I was born”
I do know someone reported to have said “It was for this that I was born.” I have written multiple times about St. Joan of Arc in this space, as someone who demonstrated the hallmarks of Knowledge: profound intuition, great insight, inexplicable knowing, wise perception in the present and in the future, and wise understanding of the past.
As Joan of Arc was leaving Vaucouleurs to begin her mission to save France she was asked by a woman: “How can you make such a journey when on all sides are soldiers?” to which Joan responded: “I do not fear the soldiers, for my road is made open to me; and if the soldiers come, I have God, my Lord, who will know how to clear the route that leads to messire the Dauphin. It was for this that I was born!”
I make no claim at this point to be able to speak of something and say “It was for this that I was born!” I do claim to aspire and to work to reach that day.
