I recently sent this to a friend:
“When the time comes, you will realize you came here because YOU AGREED TO COME HERE. Actually, everyone who is here on this planet right now is under this same auspice. Everyone who came here is bound by a soul contract to fulfill a purpose or task.
NOTHING is for NO REASON!
People might say this all is new age nonsense, that the world is filled with random (and therefore meaningless) coincidence. But NO! Does it make sense that God would send you here to live a meaningless life? Of course not! There is a reason for everything, and there are no coincidences, and everyone’s life has a purpose and a meaning!
Do you know your life purpose? Or at least what it is for the time being? If not, but you do wish to know. Then…
Do you believe in prayer? Knowing what I know about you, I think the answer is Yes. So, in your prayers, you may ask to be shown what your “job” here is.
You may have to ask many times, and perhaps ask for a long time. The reason for this is to prove to God and the angels that you are REALLY SERIOUS about knowing what your life’s purpose is.
When convinced that you are serious, God will let you know. Keep your eyes open for the signals. Sometimes the answer is revealed in bits and pieces so that you will have time to digest each piece. And on the path to this revelation you will be prepared to progressively take on larger pieces and tasks as your “skill” begins to develop.
I tell you what I know for certain: People will not have to wait as long as before, for the world and her people are awakening, and we are building a momentum demanding to know the truth about our human legacy here on earth. Many answers are forthcoming, and coming soon. Just watch. It’s happening.
The horns are being blown and the walls are already crumbling.
Now blow your horn and ask God to tell you what you are doing here. God will hear. God will answer you.”
A relevant passage from a favorite author:
“Anything is one of a million paths. Therefore you must always keep in mind that a path is only a path; if you feel you should not follow it, you must not stay with it under any conditions. To have such clarity you must lead a disciplined life. Only then will you know that any path is only a path and there is no affront, to oneself or to others, in dropping it if that is what your heart tells you to do. But your decision to keep on the path or to leave it must be free of fear or ambition. I warn you. Look at every path closely and deliberately. Try it as many times as you think necessary.
This question is one that only a very old man asks. Does this path have a heart? All paths are the same: they lead nowhere. They are paths going through the bush, or into the bush. In my own life I could say I have traversed long long paths, but I am not anywhere. Does this path have a heart? If it does, the path is good; if it doesn’t, it is of no use. Both paths lead nowhere; but one has a heart, the other doesn’t. One makes for a joyful journey; as long as you follow it, you are one with it. The other will make you curse your life. One makes you strong; the other weakens you.
Before you embark on any path ask the question: Does this path have a heart? If the answer is no, you will know it, and then you must choose another path. The trouble is nobody asks the question; and when a man finally realizes that he has taken a path without a heart, the path is ready to kill him. At that point very few men can stop to deliberate, and leave the path. A path without a heart is never enjoyable. You have to work hard even to take it. On the other hand, a path with heart is easy; it does not make you work at liking it.”
