You think of yourselves as humans searching for a spiritual awakening, when in fact you are spiritual beings attempting to cope with a human awakening. Seeing yourselves from the perspective of the spirit within will help you to remember why you came here and what you came here to do.
You do have a purpose... there is a reason why you are here. Even if you don't understand it, or even feel it, the fact remains, you have a purpose. You are here for a reason, at this place in time. You are important in the overall plan, with a niche to fill that fits only you. Your spirit worked on this plan before you arrived and everything that takes place in your lifetime is pointing you in that direction.
That being said, not many people have any idea why they are here, where they are going, and/or what it's all about. Whether you are aware or not, you will still fulfill your destiny.
You may be here as a dire warning to the people around you, or perhaps to love someone and change the direction of their life.
You come into this world perfect and within a very short time, life started 'beating you up' and filling your head with 'buttons'... endless rules, requirements, laws, protocol and other such nonsense. These 'buttons' form your reactions to different situations. This IS the 'school of hard knocks', and you are here because you can handle it.
Any problems you encounter in your life are self-inflicted. You are simply reacting to the 'buttons' that have been installed. And the only one that can change your destiny is you. You are in charge, running the show. You are a spirit in human form, and very powerful. So..... take some time, get quiet and try connecting to your inner spirit, so you can remember who you are.
