The goal of the human spirit is to attain to spiritual perfection. This entails the development of all the abilities it carries within in an undeveloped form. This he can do through experiencing Creation. He has to pass through all the realms of Creation below him and come to know how the laws operate in all these realms. The resulting experiences gradually awaken him to the consciousness of self. He is then able to return to Paradise as a fully conscious human spirit, perfect in every way, ready to contribute eternally in the further development of Creation. The attainment of spiritual perfection is actually the purpose of our lives.
