“Ultimately, higher purpose is spiritual evolution. The new home, the finished project, is not the goal of growth. The process by which you create these things and the growth it gives you — the new skills you acquire, the insights, the opening of your heart when you love, the new appreciation for beauty your garden gives you when flowers or crops come up, the feelings you have when you finish a project, the focus and concentration when you work — this is higher purpose, this is evolution.”
