Two Big QuestionsWhy am I here? Where is God?
Two of the most important questions in the world have been asked since the beginning of time. People from all walks of life, the most powerful people in the world, and those seeking truth and understanding as well as those struggling for reasons why they are here on this Earth—have wanted to know:
What is the purpose of my life?
What is my relationship with God?
In my book, Time for Truth, I discuss the answers to these two questions in detail, but today I want to share with you a synopsis of these answers, for they are the keys to your living a life filled with harmony and peace of heart, mind and soul. And the answers to these questions are interconnected, for you cannot have one without the other.
You have been taught that you are over here (on the left), God is over there (on the right), and the Church is in the middle between you and God. Many millions have been taught that you cannot have God without the Church being the conduit to God. And without the Church, you cannot have salvation and redemption from God. But this is not true.
The spirit of God is inside of you. You are a part of God and God is a part of you. No person or organization has the right to claim they control that personal relationship between you and God. The reason you are an immortal child of God is because the Lord’s spirit is inside of you and eternally connected to your soul.
And your purpose in life is to become at one with God.
Imagine that there is a pyramid of 1000 steps within you. And at the very top of the pyramid is God and the Christ Consciousness. Your goal in life is to climb those stairs—one at a time—until you reach the top and are at one with God and Christ Consciousness. Each one of you is at a different step, and the higher you climb to the top, the more spiritually evolved you are becoming. But you may only be able to climb a few steps each lifetime. That is why reincarnation is so important.
Remember, you are not human beings who by coincidence have a spirit and a soul. You are spirits with a soul who are having a human experience.
You advance up the stairs of your pyramid by living your life embracing universal compassion and universal love. You move up the stairs by letting others benefit by experiencing your love and compassion. For then all around you, you shall create the same. There is no linear time in the spirit world, and God will wait for you until you reach the top of that pyramid.
Think back when you were a child and you finished the fourth grade. After you rested during the summer, you did not return to school as a junior in high school or a senior in college. You continued where you had left off. The same is true in life, in that after the transition of your soul in any lifetime, you return in your next lifetime to continue from the step you left off in your journey to become at one with God.
From your own observation, you are able to evaluate where a person is in their ascension to becoming at one with God. Living saints would be on the 800th step or above. Those whose lives are influenced by greed, hate, dishonesty, deceitfulness and other undesirable traits would be below the 200th step.
How does one accomplish climbing up the stairs of the pyramid—or essentially evolving to a higher level? It is by living your life consistent with God’s will, embracing universal love, universal compassion and living in truth. So your purpose in life is to live your life in a manner that enables you to ascend and evolve until you are at one with that part of God that is inside of you.
God bless you as you continue on your journey.
