Elianah - I think you should check out the Jewish Renewal Movement if you haven't already. Hypenated Jews are welcome e.g. Buddhist-Jew, New Age- Jew, Kabbalah-Jew, etc.
Your take on our purpose is very Luria/Seth like. I share a similar view - God seeks to know itself. That's the macro view. The micro view is that we seek to know ourselves as well through our experience.
I sure hope you can inject these learnings into the Jewish community - it could sure use it.
Simple ain't easy.
