The purpose of existence is not in seeking divine or become supernatural. In materialistic existence you are to seek, in spiritual you are to experience and realize in totality, but with alertness, awareness, watchfulness and as a witness. Living with both existences makes you complete to enjoy in awareness and this should be our purpose.
We are a part of life and God, not separate. We normally exist in separation, more with our “me, mine and myself’. Our purpose should be to live in totality, from one moment to next, in mindfulness, to be aware and alive. Existence cannot be separate, as we are all interconnected, interdependent and inter-related as one whole. My breath goes into someone else and others into mine. Birth and death are merely entry and exit points, where during that period your indulgence should be to enjoy both worlds; material and the spiritual that of duality and the divine.
Purpose should not be the aim; seek, aim or desires are all in the future. Truth, love, divine and life are all in the present; in the now. mind, through external perceptual thinking is designed only for the past and future, you are to spiritually experience in order to be in the now. Connecting all these three into one is the journey of life in totality.
Only Religion, for its own purpose preaches or implies that we are here for a greater or divine purpose. Since this has been embedded or conditioned into our mind for generations, many from the West come to India or seek from Spiritualism, what this enlightenment is all about.
Very soon, when they do not attain what they seek, they feel dejected and go back disappointed. The purpose, aim or intention in life is not in seeking or desire enlightenment; like Buddha never knew he was enlightened.

Salvation, enlightenment or evolution is all experiences to be realized and not to seek. Reality says I am in the now; I exist in the now to be experienced in whatever form I may be. I am the absolute, changing from dust to life and back into dust. Therefore, salvation or evolution is not to seek in the future, it is in the present. It is to experience in totality, moment to moment in alertness, observance and awareness, where godliness and goodness flows naturally not with any purpose but out of the presence of your being in awareness.
The message of religion should be to be joyous every moment in totality and not to separate one from another to believe in separate gods. Religion today gives you a separate identity, where you lose connection, communication and compassion with one another. That is how, it tells you to escape from reality in making you seek for salvation in afterlife and seeking enlightenment of a divine, who is nowhere but within yourself.
Your journey in life should be first to know and love yourself, live in totality with alertness, watchfulness and observance and just be the way you are, with all your senses open and alive.
Always remember purpose or a goal is not what life has in store for you. If it was a goal, even if you win this rat race, you will still remain a rat.
