The purpose of life is to acquire qualities and virtues so that we can carry ourselves into the next world as spiritual giants. But this is not the end purpose of life. The end purpose is something far greater.
What is the end purpose of the soul?
Again look at nature and the Writings. Everything that begins an organic life begins with a seed. A tree begins its life with a seed. The same with a child. Look at a tree, it grows and grows then it reaches a point where it fulfils itself when it produces its own seed. It has produced its child. It has reached the purpose of its existence if it produces its fruit, its seed. Our soul is the same thing also. It has to produce a fruit. Remember, it begins at the time of conception, if grows spiritually and acquires virtures and perfections, but it has to eventually produce a fruit. Now we look at the tree again, we notice that the tree cannot produce a fruit by itself. It cannot become pregnant unless there is a relationship with another factor, the male and female factor. The tree is the female, it produces its fruit, but it has to be pollenated from another source. Our soul is the same thing, the soul is female in the same sense. If it has to produce a fruit it has to establish a spiritual, a mystical relationship with another agency. So then our soul becomes fertilized, becomes pregnant. Here again we see in nature this relationship is involuntary, we see the tree is pollenated in a certain way, but with the soul has a free will, it is like a marriage, it has to find a partner, it has to choose. Who will it find. Most people give their souls to this physical, material world. Then the child of that partnership is not worthy, that child is materialism. It is a lower partnership.
We have the choice
Many people come into the world and they die and they have nothing to show for their life but materialism, this is the fruit that their soul has produced. Because the soul has a free will, it has a choice. But let us see what God wants to do, which partner He has chosen for us. Where is the partner for our soul that we can establish a spiritual, a higher relationship. We are told in this day that agency is Baha'u'llah. He is the Manifestation of God for this age. Our soul must give itself to Him, establish a mystical intercourse, a spiritual relationship with the influences of His revelation. So that this may fertilize our souls, then our soul becomes the mother of something very precious, and gives birth to it. Then you look at that child which our soul has given birth to. It is known as the spirit of faith. This is the final purpose of our lives. It comes into being as soon as you say ` I believe' in Baha'u'llah. In the beginning it is very small, just a little flicker of light. This is very precious, you must look after it, help it to grow. Just like a mother who gives birth to a child, it is difficult, and it takes a lot of hard work to bring it up and train it and protect and perserve it and help it grow. This is the most important work.

PROOF OF LIFE AFTER DEATH?
A woman which was blind from birth had a remarkable near death experience. Suddenly she was able to see!
Later after she woke out of her coma she was able to describe visual images ! She was very sad to be alive again and to return back to be blind again.

Where do I come from? (under construction)
The soul comes from the spiritual worlds of God. Therefore it is a stranger when it comes to this world. We are told in the Writings that the soul is created at the time of our conception. At the same time that the first cell is formed in the womb of the mother, at that very instant the soul comes into existence. Our soul did not exist before, in the same way that that cell in the womb did not exist before. The soul, being exaltd above entry or exit, ascent or descent, cannot be physically placed inside a body or have any connection with material things. We are also told that the soul is not in the body, because the soul is a spiritual entity. You cannot explain its spiritual reality into words. But words are all that we have to understand it. They just stimulate our mind. But we must understand that a spiritual thing cannot go into a material thing. Only a material thing can go into another material thing. So that means that our soul does not go into our body, it is only associated with it. `Abdu'l-Baha has given us an example. He says that the relationship of the soul with the body is like the relationship of the light with the mirror. When you look in the mirror you see the light, but the light is not really inside the mirror. If you want to put your hand into the mirror and get the light out you cannot do it, it is only a relationship. If you break the mirror the light is not affected. The light is somewhere else, but it appears in the mirror. This is like our soul.
When a child is born, it brings with it all that it has. All that it has acquired in the womb of the mother it brings with it. It does not leave anything behind. Now when you are born it is the time to start to acquire qualities and virture. The same thing is with the soul.
