Whether you consider yourself an Evolutioneer or not, knowing your most basic purpose for living is essential to ordering your life with meaning and to live a happy and successful life. One draws clarity and power from this fundamental knowledge and focus.
To objectively understand your own basic life purpose as well as humanity's basic purpose it is logical and necessary to understand the pre-existing and larger evolutionary purposes of evolving life within the Cosmos (the universe.) This is because the evolution of your life and the evolution of humanity is completely embedded within the pre-existing evolutionary processes, purposes, and directionality of evolution within the universe.
Knowing the universe's pre-existing purposes for how to optimally evolve life is also important because these purposes have been time-tested and have proven themselves to be optimally successful for sustaining and thriving life in all its forms over billions of years of universe evolution and varying conditions. Based upon this science-grounded rational premise, the most logical, objective, and basic life purposes for the individual and humanity are to:
a.) first align one's own goals, purposes, and actions with the pre-existing and vastly more powerful directionality of progressive evolution within the universe, (the Universe's core purposes and goals,) and then
b.) become an active partner with the Universe in intentionally forwarding the progressive evolution of life, and humanity both here on Earth and eventually out into the stars.
Within the above two core meta-purposes are also contained every worthwhile, meaningful, and life-affirming purpose from every important area of life such as family, politics, economics, society, religion, etc. These greater evolutionary purposes for human life (a and b above,) also, fortunately, do not negate your individual goals and passions for happiness and the comforts of life as long as you align them to the goals and purposes of the universe as expressed in the principles of progressive evolution.
The purposes and directionality of progressive evolution only "ask" you to elevate your current self-chosen goals, purposes, and passions by also aligning them with the pre-existing dominant directionality and purposes of the progressive evolution of life in the universe as a whole. This additional goal alignment action will then ensure that you will be more effective and sustainable over longer and longer periods of time.
The basic life purposes statement above (which is not The Great Commitment found on another page or section of this online booklet,) is an optimized statement of basic life purpose because:
a.) we are completely embedded within and carried along by the far larger and vastly more powerful forces of the massive physical universe and the universe's evolutionary processes. Even though we have some degree of individual and collective control, the most basic evolutionary processes of the universe ultimately do control the directional flow of our own evolution as well as our species' and planet's evolution.
b.) all of the "best success practices" of politics, economics, society, religion, etc. ultimately came from, are contained within, will come from and/or are controlled directly or indirectly by the core action patterns and purposes, intrinsic values, and unstoppable directionality of the universe's progressive evolutionary processes.
If we do not understand, align with and contribute to the meta-dominant flow of the universe's over-controlling evolutionary processes and directionality, how can we ever expect our lives to go well, be sustainable or, be free from unnecessary or avoidable pain and suffering? If we do not align with the pre-existing flow of the progressive evolution of the universe, we will be forever swimming upstream and against an ever-dominant and eventually overwhelming evolutionary current that sooner or later will always and inevitably wear us down and stop us from continuing in our self-chosen but non-evolutionarily aligned purposes, goals, and directions.
The new evolutionary life purpose statement (The Great Commitment,) for both individual and humanity's success flies in the face of decades of "expert" individual life purpose-finding advice that one must "first find their own highest purposes and goals and then achieve these personal self-chosen purposes and goals as your life's first priority!" Yes, there certainly is a relevant and important place for pursuing one's self-related purposes and goals, but only after you have first understood the meta-dominant directionality and purposes of the universe's evolutionary processes and then --- only after you have wisely aligned your personal purposes and goals with them.
What to Expect to Happen After you Make The Great Commitment in Your Life:
"Right relationship to reality is what ultimately matters." Michael Dowd
Right relationship to reality here means that you have aligned your personal purposes and goals to the purposes and goals of evolution. If you see the wisdom of aligning your life with the unstoppable power flow of the progressive evolution of the universe then make the following commitment right now. If you do, you will begin to experience almost immediately an expanded new wonder, beauty, and renewed sense of adventure about the positive possibilities of life. You will also soon begin to experience and vastly improved yet sustainable:
a.) evolutionary fitness,
c.) cooperativeness and,
d.) an improved control of your environment.
Once you make The Great Commitment you will experience a new sense of life "flowing through you" because --- by your new intention and decision you have given evolution permission to more fully use you to forward its wonderful life purposes. Don't be surprised if others see and feel a new clarity and flow you have expanding into your life as the unstoppable power of evolution flows through and with you...
How to Align Your Current Personal Purposes and Goals with the Directionality and Purposes of Evolution within the Universe: (If you have not done this already.)
This is done simply by first:
a.) recognizing and then placing your self-chosen personal purposes and goals appropriately within the far greater controlling context, directionality, and importance of the universe's pre-existing and unstoppable directionality of evolution. And then by,
b.) aligning your personal purposes and goals with the universe's progressive evolution directionality.
How to align your personal purposes and goals with the universe's progressive evolution directionality:
a.) Read about the core directionality, actions, and value interests (purposes,) of progressive evolution now.
b.) Next, take some time to think deeply about the two basic life purpose statements found on the first page or section of this online booklet, and then ask yourself this simple question. "Do you think that your current self-chosen life goals and purposes align with the meta-purposes of evolution?" (The meta-purposes of evolution as described in this progressive evolution link.)
c.) If they don't, you have a unique opportunity to realign your existing life goals and purposes with the meta purposes of progressive evolution. In the bargain of getting this right, you will greatly enhance the ease and success of your attaining your own current self-chosen purposes and goals!
Understanding what progressive evolution is and what its new Universe Principles are will give you all of the needed questions to ask yourself so you can align your life's goals and purposes with the unstoppable power of universe evolution. Conversely, using this information you can check to see if any of your current personal purposes and goals are working against the unstoppable power flow of universe evolution. (If needed, additional links on the last page or section of this online booklet will provide you a tool to discover your own true personal goals and purposes as well.)
How to Prepare to Make The Great Commitment:
Before you make the commitment (below,) really take the time to learn about why making this meta-commitment is truly a valid and wise decision. Think deeply about it before you make it. It is so powerful it will supercharge your personal evolution and development.
This is a decision and commitment that will with your appropriate commitment-filling actions, set you on or accelerate an adventure and journey that you will never regret. Do not make the commitment below before you are honestly ready! It is too important to your and all of our shared futures!
If you honestly feel that you are not yet ready to make The Great Commitment below, we suggest you first do the following experiment. When you are done you should no longer be uncertain.
The Experiment: For 7 days (even if you do not fully understand them yet,) read, embrace and live as best you can each day the Right Actions and the Right Attitudes of the Universe Principles. At the end of 7 days notice both the significant and subtle changes in your world from this important change in your awareness, attitude, and actions. If you did notice a positive change, make The Great Commitment below.
"If you really want to evolve your life for the better (or the world,) evolutionize your decisions and commitments! If you align your life goals with the core goals and purposes of evolution and you commit yourself to forward the evolution of life in the universe as a prime commitment. it will be far easier to take whatever actions are necessary. Additionally, the direction of evolution itself will now help push you along as opposed to it being a headwind to your unaligned dreams. " Lawrence Wollersheim
The Great Commitment of Universe Evolutionary Worldview Practitioners (AKA Evolutioneers):
“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to drawback. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now.” William H Murray
If you are now ready to make The Great Commitment. Do it in a profound way special to yourself. Be sure to also print it out and sign and date it. Keep it somewhere where you can and will review it regularly. It is the most important decision that you will make in your lifetime on the ultimate level of creating the right relationship to reality for progressively evolving your life and evolving in the universe.
From it will flow all sorts of things to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from this meta-decision, raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no one could have dreamed would have ever come their way had they not make this ultimate decision and great commitment.
The Great Commitment and the Great Adventure:
a.) I fully commit myself to align (or re-aligning,) my own goals, purposes, and actions to the pre-existing directionality and purposes of progressive evolution in the universe. And,
b.) I fully commit myself to be an active partner with evolution in intentionally forwarding the progressive evolution of life, humanity, and humanity's children both here on Earth and eventually out into the stars.
When you do make this commitment email us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can add your name to the Evolutioneer honor roll and so that we can personally congratulate you on having made The Great Commitment. If you would also like a free empowerment tool to update your personal goals let us know that as well.
"The evolutionary process itself now appears to have reached the unique developmental state where it "wants to" intentionally and awarely influence its own evolution. And humanity appears to be evolution's current most favored medium for this intentional improvement to its own evolutionary processes. This then creates the two greatest questions of the 21st Century for the individual or humanity as a whole. Will we intentionally align ourselves with the purposes goals and directionality of progressive evolution and intentionally influence our own personal evolution? And, will we partner with progressive evolution in co-creating a new level of evolutionary influence over the future of our planet and eventually even the future of our universe?" Lawrence Wollersheim
