How Can I Fulfill My Life's Purpose?
When we triumph over life’s challenges, show our love and compassion for others, and become confident that we are eternal beings, we change ourselves so we live in love, peace, and joy. In addition, our body experience becomes healthy, youthful, and vibrant.
As we grow and change the interpretations and view of life and our place in eternity we learned as children, we become a different person. We are changing ourselves at the molecular level. Molecules, like everything else in Earth School, are based in Our Universal Intelligence and are continually changing and being renewed. Our new self is different at the molecular level from instant to instant. Love and compassion permeate our being so we feel more blissful, empathetic, loving, and compassionate as a natural outpouring from our being. We become love.
The high energy and bliss that results from our active display of love and compassion also causes our body experience to become healthy, full of energy, and youthful.
When we change so love and compassion characterize our being, we are aligning ourselves more closely with our Soul, which is always loving and compassionate. We are spending our days in Earth School using the skills and knowledge we learned in our early years to be successful in the Earth School environment, but we are transforming ourselves from that child into the loving, compassionate adult we planned to become before we were born.
Our loving thoughts and deeds affect the lives of people around us and the evolution of humankind. Thoughts and sentiments are energy. When we feel compassion, the energy infuses everything in our life and in the world around us. Each loving thought and deed is another measure of compassion added to the vessel of love that humanity is drinking from. When we are loving and compassionate, others become loving and compassionate, and the environment around us is imbued with the light and energy of love and compassion.
How Can I Change When It Seems the World Is Continually Making Things Happen to Me?
Earth School experiences change continually. They present new opportunities that enable us at various stages of our lives to mature in love and compassion, and they provide the challenges we must face to be able to grow in wisdom and learn the lessons we came to learn. Our job is to face the changes confidently and learn from them, knowing we are guided by loving hands. In the end you will receive an A+.
We did not enroll in Earth School to allow life to happen to us. In Earth School we are the masters of our lives, striving to achieve our goals in the face of daunting challenges. We can change who we are, what we feel, and how we react to these challenges. We can choose to be happy and successful most of the time. We can be loving, compassionate, and other-centered so we have cordial, loving relationships. We just have to cast off the old person we were to grow into the new person we are becoming.
As we go through our daily life in Earth School, circumstances change, confronting us with new experiences. Some are challenging and difficult. Some cause dramatic changes that we react to with fear, grief, and depression. Others are full of joy, fulfillment, and ecstatic feelings of love. The key to becoming successful and happy in all circumstances is learning to persevere through the challenges and tragedies, grounded in knowing who we are in eternity.
Every new challenge, adversity, loss, and misfortune becomes a new problem we set ourselves to solving, knowing we will prevail and return to the happy lives we are intended to live. With each success, we grow in maturity, strength, humility, and love for those who walk with us through the trying times. When we confidently confront the challenges without shrinking from them by withdrawing, imploring others to rescue us, or anesthetizing the emotions with chemicals, work, or other diversions, we move a step higher toward the summit of our lives.
There is no single path every person must follow. No sacred text, religion, guru, or psychotherapist can decide for us how we must navigate through Earth School. We will make decisions every day and adjust our course as the circumstances change. There is no student manual for Earth School.
To grow to have a fulfilled, successful, happy life we must confront and change the sentiments, beliefs, norms, and interpretations of experiences we learned as children. We are in control of our lives.
