Most of us who are on the spiritual path, no matter what it is, always ask one single question, ” what is my life’s purpose?”
“The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.” “The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.” Unknown
Now that’s truly a mouthful. I resonate with much of it, not every bit. I believe that our purpose is more common and simplistic than that, yet as complex as any difficult and challenging task can be. And that purpose is to remember.
If you break the word down, ” to re-member” or “put back together” it may sound too simple, too easy to be one’s life’s purpose. But think about it, if we had not collectively forgotten who we really are, and that is star people, souls choosing experiences before we are born, life would be completly different. Most of the challenges we live with would be null and void. If you knew that you were an integral part of the magnificent Universe, you would simply manifest all you desired to experience and avoid all the yucky stuff just to have the fun and luxury we all dream of.
It is really an interesting thought, because many of us are awakening and we have deep down inside, a knowing, that we are more than meets the physical eye. We have been taught that we are Spirits living a human experience and also, I like to add, humans living a human experience, but do we really know for sure, the power we have to shape and reshape our lives?
If we did we would not be struggling with experiences such as lack, hopelessness, war, separation, and segragation. We would be living a life of abundance and peace always and I’m not so sure where that experience would get us. Would we learn and grow, the way we do now, or would what is an Earth school, turn into a playground?
Though we benefit from our self-imposed amnesia, our purpose, among others, is to remember. Remember who we really are so that we can assist in the ascension of this planetary experience. Some of us will remember sooner and more fully than others so that we can help lead the way. Remembering will be traumatic for some and heaven for others. We will all deal with it in our own unique ways.
All the other purposes we have, have to do with our passions, creativities, and various talents, gifts, and interests we have been born with or developed on our journey here. These purposes are important too. I don’t want you to think they aren’t, but so many struggle with their main purpose, and there is no science to prove this and I doubt there will ever be, but I believe that we are on a trek back to remembrance. All of us, in our own way, on our own roads with our own gear in tow.
To re-member ourselves is our sacred purpose and who knows if that can happen in this earth environment, but surely many of us are wiling to find out.
