We all have something to give the world. Each of us can contribute to humanity’s progress.
The question is are we willing to step up and do our part to help humanity move forward on the evolutionary scale of consciousness? To do this, we have to look deep within ourselves and listen to what each of our souls has to say. Most of us excel at listening to what our mind has to say, but when it comes to what our heart has to say, many of us claim ignorance because “ignorance is bliss”. At least, this is what we have been told.
But ignorance of Self is not bliss – it is torture. Ignorance of your true Self and what you came here to accomplish is why so many people feel a void or a hollowness when they look at their lives. People who have everything they could need or want feel a vacuum, a dark hole that gnaws away at them. The reason for this feeling and its resolution are quite simple.
People feel a void when they have deserted or ignored their true Self and calls from the Universe to do something meaningful to help humanity. The way each person helps will be different. Some will be out in the thick of things making things happen. Others will make a difference by sitting quietly in their homes. Whichever way, they can all have a positive impact on society and humanity.
Resolution of this hollow feeling involves nothing more than listening to your true Self. You don’t have to change your life to make a difference. You just have to open the lines of communication between your rational mind and your true Self. Learn to hear and follow your heart. In this instance, “heart” means your soul and not your emotions. Following your emotions will get you into trouble, but following your heart will bring you nothing but joy and pleasure. Don’t try to control or change anything – just be aware and listen.
The process of moving to a higher state of consciousness is not difficult or complex. It is all a matter of living your experience – your life – to its fullest expression. In this case, “fullest expression” means understanding and appreciating life and what it means to be alive. Many of you walk around in a semi-comatose state, not seeing or really comprehending what is happening around you. Many of you have no appreciation for life, which means you take it for granted.
Life is a wondrous state of being. Being alive is a state of consciousness – nothing more and nothing less. Being alive is not just a physical state, but also a mental and spiritual one.
You are here to experience thoughts and emotions in a tangible way. You are here to experience pain and suffering, as well as joy and bliss. This does not mean that the purpose of life is to suffer. On the contrary, the purpose of life is to rise above pain and suffering by seeing reality as it is and understanding that all emotions are false. While you may feel them strongly, they do not really exist on the physical plane. Rather, they exist on the mental plane and as such, have no bearing on or relation to your physical world.
Emotions will always lead you in the wrong direction. You should always follow your heart, which is quite different from following your emotions. Emotions are false, but your heart connects you to the source of all that is – Universal Consciousness. If you follow your heart, you will move forward and evolve to a higher state of consciousness. But it doesn’t end here.
Once you have mastered the experiences on this plane, you will be ready to move on to the next, and the next, and the next….
