Meaning of Life
I had a crazy conversation the other day with my son who is becoming a man. He was asking me about my beliefs and the big question was asked, “what is the meaning of life?”
I am actually surprised how easy my answer came out.
I realized afterwards that this isn’t mainstream or the general views of society but it is how I feel.
This is not something I was really taught by my family. It is just what I came to believe over the years based on profound experiences throughout my life.
So here it goes, my thoughts on the meaning of life....
We all come to this life with a purpose.
Our souls come with a clear mission and this is to learn lessons.
We are here to learn, give love and be loved.
We don’t always get it right so we are sent back to give it another go and perhaps work on areas that we could improve on.
Yup, I do believe in past lives.
Our bodies are merely just a shell of who we are in this life.
The soul is the real heart of a person. Looking in the eyes of another will give you a glimps into their soul.
The eyes tell a story.
Have you ever met someone and instantly felt like you came home; as if you have known them your entire life.
This is because you have.
This is our soul recognizing another familiar soul.
This is all part of our plan that we actually help create.
Your child in this life could have been your sister in a past life. Your partner could be a best friend or even a parent from a previous life.
We have input into what our life will be like even before we get here.
The highs and even the lows.
This largely depends on what lessons we are trying to learn along the way.
We also decide with whom we want to live out this life with.
What souls will join us and play a role in this journey?
How will they challenge you?
What will you learn from them?
Life can be hard but just think of the lessons that we take from the darkest times in life.
Your soul is continually evolving each and every experience in your life.
I do believe that we come into this life with a plan but we also have free will and can make changes along the way.
These are the pivotal moments in your life. Trust yourself in these times because you will always make the right decision even if it doesn’t seem that way.
Everything happens as it should!
I am not a big believer in a fear based God who wants to punish us for our sins; however, I believe in an ever loving God that loves us all equally.
This love is far more powerful than anything we have experienced on earth.
God’s love is unconditional and without judgment.
We are not perfect and God forgives us.
We are held accountable for how we lived our life but this isn’t a scary thing.
It’s just part of our process and life is full circle.
We must face how we lived our life even when we thought that no one was looking.
Once our body dies, it is time for our soul to make its journey back to the afterlife.
We are greeted by loved ones, past souls, spirit guides and angels who walk us through this process side by side.
We then get to review our life from our very first breath right until our last.
Every single second of it.
The proud moments.
The mistakes and even your deepest darkest regrets must be faced.
We make mistakes and we are flawed but what we learn from imperfection can be incredibly beautiful.
As we watch our life playback like one long movie. We are also able to experience others feelings and pain.
How did we really impact others?
How did we treat people?
What did you give back during your life?
Did you help others rise up?
Did you kick others down?
Did you lie?
Did you cheat?
What type of friend were you?
Did you love fully?
Did you judge those around you?
I think everyone has to face the music one day and there is no hiding from it. What you put out into this world eventually comes back to you in one way or another.
Once this reviewing period is over you evaluate your life.
Time to identify areas that you still need to learn or haven’t got right just yet.
Then when the time is right, you come back and get another chance at life.
