The whole purpose of life is to make God a reality.

Bowl of Saki, October 9, by Hazrat Inayat Khan

Commentary by Hazrat Inayat Khan:

As to the religion and the moral of the mystic, the mystic has one moral
and that is love. And he has one aim in his religion and that is to make a
God a reality. Therefore, his God becomes a greater God than the God of
millions of people who only imagine that there is a God somewhere. To him
God is a reality.

The work of the inner life is to make God a reality, so that He is no more
an imagination; that this relationship that man has with God may seem more
real than any other relationship in the world; and when this happens, then
all relationships, however near and dear, become less binding. But at the
same time, a person does not thus become cold; he becomes more loving. It
is the godless man who is cold, impressed by the selfishness and
lovelessness of the world, because he partakes of those conditions in which
he lives. But the one who is in love with God, the one who has established
his relationship with God, his love becomes living …

Why is it that among simple and illiterate people a belief in God is to be
found, and among the most intellectual, there seems to be a lack of that
belief? The answer is that the intellectual ones have their reason. They
will not believe in what they do not see… But the process that the wise
consider best for the seeker after truth to adopt is the process of first
idealizing God and then realizing God.

Among millions of believers in God, there is hardly one who makes God a
reality, to so many He is an imagination, to many He is in a mosque, a
church, or a temple. Many wonder if God is really. Many others think God is
goodness, He is a personality separate from us, He is most high, most pure,
most beautiful, but He is separate and difficult to reach. Many think that
as it takes so long to reach this planet or that, God must be further away
still. The purpose of one’s whole life is to make God a reality.
