Have you ever wondered who you are? I mean really are? I’m not talking about a casual thought here or something you briefly think about over a quick cup of coffee. Rather, it’s the kind of question one might quietly contemplate while walking the beach at sunrise or when sitting on a rock with your feet in a gentle mountain stream. As you begin to spend some time with this question, another one may come to mind.
It is almost as important as the first and the two of them go hand in hand. “What am I doing here on this planet?” A useful starting point is yet a third question that brings us closer to home. And yet few people give it much thought today. “Am I more than my body?” It’s so easy to believe and feel that we are our body because we find ourselves in it all the time. Several times a day it gets hungry, other times it can hurt or feel pleasure. It can even create life and more bodies! Then it gets old and the aches and pains tell us it doesn’t work the same anymore. Eventually it passes on. Our body seems so natural to us because we have over-identified with its physical form and the material world it was made to function in for ages.
We have lived in and discarded many bodies during all the previous lives we have experienced on planet Earth. After repeating the many cycles of life, death and life again, most of us continue to forget who we really are and where we came from. We are lost in a way of life that has dulled our higher senses and taken us away from our God-centeredness.
The time has finally come for us to refocus our attention and leave the ego, the fears and the wheel of life and death they create for us behind. But none of it will happen until we reclaim our rightful cosmic origin and divine heritage. And in order to do so we need to answer the questions raised in the beginning of this page and awaken to our true spiritual nature. Let us journey back in time to a point beyond the distant past when there was no time and no space, as we know it today. It is a place that still exists, but a place we have long forgotten, even though the mystics and the sages have described it for us in their sacred teachings.
The wise ones say that before our physical universe was created there was nothing but the Void, the Absolute, within the incomprehensible mind of All That Is. In the Absolute, God could only know things but was unable to experience or feel them. We can relate to this every time we fantasize within our own minds, but realize that something is missing when it cannot be experienced or felt. Father/Mother God desired to share love in a more meaningful and fulfilling way. As a result, we were created and All That Is had countless children (souls) to love, to care for, and relate to unconditionally for eternity.
In the Void we were all ONE, all a part of God. There was nothing but the most unspeakable joy, bliss, harmony and peace. And yet, two things were still missing: experience and feeling. You see, in the Absolute there is only Oneness, no separation, no comparisons, no judgments and no opposites. All is simply ONE.
And yet, we and God wanted to have experiences and feelings (emotions). But, in order to have them, a place would have to be created in which opposites exist. That is, for hot there would be cold, for joy there would be sadness, for male there would be female, for sickness there would be health, for anger there would be forgiveness and so on. If you think about it, how else could there be experience and feeling unless there was an opposite for it to be compared to?
In one magnificent act of God’s mind, the physical universe as we know it was formed. It was a place of dualities within which we could experience and feel. And we were to be extensions of All That Is within this universe so that God could experience and feel it all through us.
God gave us two incredible gifts to enjoy while in the universe: The free will to do anything we want and the power to create whatever our minds could conceive. We then left the Void as fragments or extensions of God and our spirits entered the physical universe to enjoy and appreciate its countless offerings.
That is your heritage. You are a magnificent creation of God. A Being of Light. You are perfect in every way. You are more powerful than you realize. You are a fragment of All That Is who loves you unconditionally. You have been gifted by your Creator with unlimited potential. You have not been born with sin, but with pure, God-like innocence. And, you are the most remarkable and splendid being that God has ever created.
What are we doing here on planet Earth? Again, we are told that ages and ages ago, while roaming through the universe, our family of souls discovered this planet of exquisite beauty. However, its vibration and our vibration were not the same. Ours was much higher and much faster, while that of this Earth was much slower. In spite of these differences in vibration, we wanted to experience and feel what it would be like to appreciate and enjoy Earth’s many wonders. We also realized that there was a danger in slowing our vibrations down. Doing so would threaten our God-centeredness.
In spite of the risks involved, we felt we could do it for a short period of time. As such, a group of us descended into the Earth’s 3-dimensional energy field. Over time we lost our way and our God-centeredness by over-identifying with the material pleasures this planet had to offer. In the process, we apparently had to split our male-female oneness into two halves as well. And, over the ages, these two halves have been referred to as “twin souls.”
There we were, a group of spirits who became more and more trapped within the Earth’s environment. Other spirits from our same family, who remained untainted in the Spirit world, came to Earth to help us. However, many of them also lost their way as well. Part of the price we paid for separating from God was the life-death reincarnational cycle and the sickness, pain and suffering that comes with 3-dimensional existence. These are not meant to be punishments in any way. Rather, they are there to help us find our way back to who we really are. But we have to do it on our own. God will help if we ask. But the rest is up to us.
Here we are, many ages and countless life-death cycles later. Our goal is to wake up and remember our spiritual nature and heritage. Eventually, we will. When we do we’ll leave this beautiful planet and bless the experience we had, while returning to the spirit form we have long forgotten.
Never forget that you are a magnificent child and creation of God. You are a Being of Light. All you have to do is remember that and live it.
