The Purpose of Earth
« on: August 02, 2012, 10:39:36 AM »
Planet earth, a place of natural beauty where everything must kill in order to survive. A place where people have come to accept the constant carnage as a "beautiful circle of life." Never has our planet known a day of peace. Every day millions die and suffer. If we are to believe that we existed before we were born here then the question has to be asked why are we here? If we truly are Spirit, and I make no assumptions that we are, then why would we choose to come here? What lessons might we learn, what benefits might we gain from coming to a place like this?

I would argue that no "Spiritually awake" person would ever choose to come here. If a person has a choice between Heaven with all of it's alleged perfections, or earth, then it makes no sense that one would choose earth. The most that can be said is that occasionally one might wake up here, but not that one with a sane mind would ever choose earth over Heaven. As Buddha once said "All life on earth is suffering. The way out of suffering is by returning to Spirit." (paraphrased)

It is possible that our existence here is completely random and arbitrary. It is possible that the atheist, evolutionists have it right, and the whole notion of God and an afterlife is nothing but wishful thinking. But this is a spiritual forum, and I for one believe that we are Spirit, so the question of why we are here requires a better answer. The lack of purpose does not constitute a purpose.

If we have chosen to come here then it is for a reason. The reason why we are here is because in some way, shape, or form we are unprepared to experience Heaven. It could be that we have forgotten what we are. It could be that we are asleep in Heaven and don't know it. It could be that we were cast out of Heaven. It could be that we have yet to find Heaven. There could be any number of reasons why we do not experience Heaven right here and now, but whatever the reason this earthly experience, for the time being anyway, remains our perceived reality. Earth is the only thing we know for sure.

So, what can we say that we know for sure about earth. We know that there is plenty of evil and corruption in this place. Everywhere we look there is another victim of somebody's evil intentions. We know that nature itself inflicts much evil on us. Yes, it sustains us ... but then it kills us. In fact, we even entertain ourselves with evil. We go to work and do something that we hate all day long to be able to spend our hard earned money watching movies that glorify just how bad we can be to each other. In this way we can indulge in our evil addiction without going to prison for it. From the evidence one could say that we are here because we are unable to experience Heaven due to our desire for evil. Earth accommodates this desire perfectly. Here we are free to be as evil as we like to one another. In fact, there is damn good money to be made from it. The oil industry comes to mind.

It's clear that there is certainly many forms of evil in this world, so what about love? We know that the word "love" is misused and minimized constantly i.e. "I love to hurt people." etc. In fact, is there even such a thing as love in this place? Hopefully we can find it in our parents, but that is not a guarantee. When a couple falls in love is it love or lust? Most of the time such "love" leads to failed relationships so it's value is limited. Perhaps it's useful for procreation. I have a cat that I love, but I don't see that sort of love as leading to much spiritual enlightenment.

I would argue that the greatest examples of love in this world come from the spiritual masters whose love encompasses all people. Mother Teresa was one such example. She gave up this world to love and help everybody regardless of who they were, what they had done, or what they believed. She loved people period. When asked in an interview why she ministered to people of all religions and even criminals she replied "They are all Jesus in disguise." Not very Catholic is it?

So what can we gather from all this?

1. We are here because we are incapable of experiencing Heaven.

2. There is much evil in this world and much desire for it.

3. There is far less love.

4. The so called "Spiritual Masters" all share one thing in common, a love that is so strong it excludes nobody on the face of this earth.

So, what is the purpose of planet earth? To teach us how to overcome our desire for evil and cultivate a love strong enough to experience Heaven. If one can love his/her enemies, if one can love like Mother Teresa, if one can love so unconditionally and all inclusively as to see nothing but light and love in everybody regardless of circumstances, then this is what is required for us to enter Heaven. If we look upon earth in this way then we can be grateful for all the horror, because without it we would never develop our love to the degree necessary to enter Heaven. Earth is the perfect classroom to learn that evil is not the way and that love is. As addicted as we are our capacity for evil is limited while our capacity for love is limitless.

"Teach only love for that is what you are."

ACIM

"Only those who give over all desire to reject can know that their own rejection is impossible."

ACIM   

The healing of God's Son is all the world is for. That is the only purpose the Holy Spirit sees in it and thus the only one it has.

ACIM

How lovely is the world whose purpose is forgiveness of God's Son! How free from fear, how filled with blessing and with happiness!

ACIM

I'm familiar with "A Course In Miracles." Sitting on my desk right now is the audio book, "The Disappearance of the Universe," by Gary R. Renard. "Straight talk about illusions, Past Lives, Religion, Sex, Politics, and the Miracles of Forgiveness."

It was OK, couldn't really get pass the part of, (1) the author(s) believing that JC, or as they referred to him, "J" actually existed, when you have all those mythical characters before "J" .. Mithra, Dionysis, Krisna, and several others, and (2) ACIM reads like a religion in and of itself but the authors write about it as if it is set in stone when it really amounts to the opinion of a few, if that.

It was entertaining nonetheless.

I know you doubt that Jesus ever existed and you're welcome to your opinion, but that opinion has been pretty well refuted by professional historians. You're confusing the story with the person. Just because the Romans chose to superimpose an old story onto a real life person, does not mean that person never existed. Jesus' message at the time was entirely incompatible with Roman ambitions.

The Disappearance of the Universe along with ACIM reflect Jesus' teachings before they were changed for political reasons. That much is of course my opinion, but there are some early Christian works that managed to survive the Romans that talk about very similar concepts. For example many of the 1st century Christians were Universalists. It has also been established that reincarnation was a popular belief among the early founding fathers.

Peace and life
Earth is a school planet(esfere, not really plane)  or some prefer call it a prison planet, we come to pay and learn, liberate ourselves from the wheel of fate. The divine ones incarnate in planets like earth, as when we go to school to teach or to prison to help people know truths of the universe.

As to sum up in few words what you, kind reader, have to do in these existences on Earth, independent of belief or race. The celestial law has taken charge of sending diverse messengers in all the times of the human race to relocate in the correct road, happens that after the guide or teacher leaves , humanity distort the messages misleading the coming ones. For that reason we affirm that all the religions, doctrines etc., they have truths. We remind (since it is not the first time that are said to you, in other lives they have already been said) that you come to earth to:
1) Acquire science or wisdom and to return WITH SCIENCE (consciousness) to the absolute one.

That absolute many have called him  I AM (YO GA), great presence, real being, internal Christ, internal Krishna, interior Buddha. This is what they have called:
ILLUMINATION

Now then, how is this achieved? Here the humanity's great part has an idea because the teachers have left a lot of wisdom of how to BE ILLUMINATED. But there is a disinformation with regard to some key points as:
a) The human being has three instances:
Matter, Energy and Soul.

These three factors should be in balance, the brothers of the infinite call it psychosomatic structuring in fluency or balanced structure. This balance is important if anyone aspires to flow or communicate with beings of the super dimensions. For that reason their first messages have always been guided to restructure ourselves, since 99% of the humanity has disorder in some of the three levels. For them the central one, that is to say, the Energy , is fundamental for any type of spiritual evolution, this is why they guided us to
heighten or elevate the creative energy.

This point is the great weakness of many doctrines and religions, without energy theres no advance, is like a car without fuel (it can be new but wont move without fuel, almost impossible if your aiming up, of course going down its easy). The human being's creative energy is in their genital, in the seminal liquid of the male and the woman's fluids. This is the energy that feeds all the chakras and develops them, that which increases our vibration level coming nearer to the absolute one.
All the spiritual true Teachers have practiced Kriya yoga, tantra, alchemy,

as many calls this, with the purpose of elevate their vibration level and become purified , being perfected, developing the sacred virtues. Since the creative energy feeds as much the matter as the soul. For that reason the years can pass practicing any religion but if they don't heighten the energy the advance is little or null.

To finish this synthesis I make clear that
either to be realized spiritually or to be evacuated in the event of the purification that comes to Earth. It is required you to be restructured psychosomatically.

This is not overnight; therefore begin your spiritual work once and for all.
NO church or religion will do it for you ,  each one will save himself with its spiritual internal works (not external)
That the source of Universal life guides you and the Christic light covers you.

      As a spirit I have knowledge of all things, it was given to me by the Creator. My only problem is that I have no experience to go with that knowledge. Wouldn't it be nice to have a place to go and  live life and find out for myself threw experience what does not work, so that when I return home to heavenly realms I will not want. A world with a grace period.
     
     Coming to a world with my memory striped away. To have the thrill of seeing threw all of the illusions, and still being able to find who I really am. Being able to learn to follow my heart threw all of the darkness and still return to authentic self.
   
     Having my best friend on the other side come down here to be my enemy on this Earth so that I can test my knowing my own true nature. So that I can learn more about myself.

     My pain and suffering is my resistance to my own personal truth. Learn to love the AFGE (another friggen growth experience) and you might be on your way.

     Love; well lets just say that it can only be experienced, not described or defined, an energy and an experience that has no opposite. And Earth is a place to learn threw experience what Love is not.

This is actually an easy topic to explain. At the end of my life, I have completed my tasks. Everything we need to know is before us. Our obstacle is ourselves. The science and history of humanity explains everything, but there is little purpose for truth other than truth itself. The human purpose is related to what lies under this science. It serves an idealic service.

Study history to examine how humanity responds to the science. This is the evidence you need to understand. You will need some help, but unless you are selected by an angel, you will not get it. Everything has been written in one of my freeEbooks, but 99% of you will fail to understand. That is the science.

It is all about vibration, positive/negative charge, and the resulting ego. All from magnetism as we choose vibration in this self-fulfilling science. And the very few who actually get it in their life will get help once the "bad guys": have singled them out...because if you do figure out life you will be singled out. History displays everything in bright detail...yet we fail to see at all.

The history channel runs shows that show how the USA is the culprit all along over and over. My life shows that fact as well. Yet, we will instead deny truth and if we are lucky, replace it with a nice lie. Most lies are not nice. The truth is so ugly that we refuse it.

I propose that if a qualified lifeform provided all of the answers to all of the questions on the prescribed day that not one person would know. The very simple facts are growing on the ground each day in front of us and we are so full of ourselves that we cannot even find the starting place. And if anyone ever notices the obvious, it gets ten times worse. This is who we choose to be. I have seen it, I have studied it, on and before the prescribed day.

One plus one equals ...what?

I am currently considering solving all of mankind's problems in simple fashion...my favorite technique. I have begun the very initial steps at another site just now, and might start more in the next couple of days, or if no one qualifies or cares, I may find some other life form to study.

Feel free to let me know how you feel. It is not often a legitimate solution is provided to lifeforms. I am not often changing my mind or rotting (my favorite human word...it so well describes being human) on the vine, but I am willing to do some rotting before I die.

I have rather enjoyed life lately as i have learned so much in sucking status. Once i chose the pathetic condition from the menu, I started learning all the time. Suffering, I already know, is a requirement to not rot on the human vine, but I just so much enjoyed rotting. I found so many friends there! You guys rock!
