ANTHONY MARR’S PERSONAL MISSION STATEMENT
“Why am I here?” so ask us all.
The answer lies first in whether you’re a theist or an atheist.
If you’re an atheist, you do not believe in the existence of God or the soul. To you, you’re just another creature who somehow was born, live for a while, and will die. And when you die, it is game over. That’s it. So, to an atheist, the highest aim is to live life to the fullest, at work or at play, be it an adventure or a mission. If life is an adventure, and if you have the drive and ambition, you’d want to be an Indiana Jones. If life is a mission, it would depend on your field and discipline. If you are a scientist, then you would want to be a Darwin or an Einstein. It is not true to think that an atheist disbelieves in immortality. To an atheist, immortality can be attained by devoting your life to making a significant change in the world or in humanity that will last far into the future.
I am like an atheist in many ways, and I do not believe in any kind of God as defined by any religion that I have known, but, I do believe in the existence of the soul.
If you believe in the existence of the soul, you will have to believe in either Heaven-and-Hell or Reincarnation, but not both.
If you believe in Heaven-and-Hell, your purpose in life would be relatively straight forward – to live your one life on Earth as sinlessly and as charitably as possible with the aim of entering Heaven upon your death. This may keep you in the straight and narrow, and in socially acceptable sheep-like behavior, but, as the Inquisition in the Middle Ages or, more aptly, the Dark Ages, more than amply attested, it could backfire and backfire hideously. In the final analysis, the ultimate goal to get your own soul into Heaven forever, and to hell with the physical world you will leave behind, constitutes the ultimate of selfishness, to which I do not abide.
If you believe in Reincarnation, as do I, your life’s purpose could be as high as you dare to make it, and its creativity is limited only by your imagination. And the questions are legion. Who am I? What am I? How did I get here? Where am I going? WHY am I here? Why am I HERE?
As for me, I believe that I chose to be here, this one planet out of the billions of planets in this galaxy, out of the billions of galaxies in this Universe, at the exact time when it needs my help the most. I believe that every planet with life and civilization would have undergone or will undergo its own planetary crisis, and this is the time for the crisis of the planet Earth of the Milky Way Galaxy.
What of the past and future? My belief is that I, “my soul” speaking, have lived many lives in the millions of years that have gone before, and will live many lives far into the future. My past and future lives do not have to be on this planet, and I do not have to be a human being, except in this life on this Earth. I could have been a grey “Alien” or a six-limbed “Centaur” and still be able to fulfill my purpose, maybe even more effectively.
So, what is the purpose in this life of mine on this planet of ours? It is the same as my purpose on any planet in any past life: to contribute towards saving the planet to the best of my ability. I do not have to do all by myself, but if I have to, I will.
What does it take to save a planet?
The first and most important task is to infuse love and compassion into the species I have chosen to enter, in the present case the species Homo Sapiens, both among its own members, and between it and other species of the planet, to change cruelty into kindness, killing into nurturing, malevolence into benevolence. Thus, I have founded the Global Anti-Hunting Coalition (GAHC), to defeat the most immoral of all human evils – deriving pleasure out of another sentient being’s suffering.
Further, I will contribute intellectually to guide the human species towards healing the planet Earth which has been severely damaged by prior and current human activities. Thus, I have founded Heal Our Planet Earth (HOPE), and have published a book as well as a blog series both titled [Homo Sapiens SAVE YOUR EARTH].
Finally, I have chosen to be a human in this life time not only to help humanity through the crisis from within, but to lead it by mean of a new philosophical system of my own conception, known as the Omniscientific Cosmology, on to a higher level of civilization, there to fulfill its highest destiny. To this end, I have written my magnum opus [OMNI-SCIENCE and the Human Destiny].
For those who are special in my life, I hope to see you from time to time, from lifetime to lifetime, in whatever biological guise we might choose to don, on whatever planet in whatever galaxy we might choose to save. Meanwhile, with undaunted resolution, I will fulfill my sacred promise to myself, all sentient beings of this planet, and the planet Earth itself.
