As far as we can discern, the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being - Carl Jung
The light of the divine is so much greater than us. Light always gently pulls us to move forward. Have you noticed how you are naturally drawn to light? When life is good, we really do feel happy and light in our whole being. But, when life is tough, we feel heavy, like we're pushing through until we can feel and see that guiding light once again.
Living in harmony with the divine nature of our being makes life flow smoothly in the right direction. The right people and situations come along as if by magic to help us on our spiritual journey.
When we go against the natural way of things, we attract disharmony and problems. Life becomes uneasy.
How do you know if you're off track? Here are some signs:
- Using drugs or relying on too much alcohol.
- Needing a lot of external excitement or stimulation to be happy.
- Eating unhealthy, heavily processed food.
- Idolizing famous people and social status.
- Not caring about how your actions affect others, the enviroment, animal welfare, and the earth.
- Being argumentative, judgmental, and critical of others.
It's okay if some of these sound like you. Our world often leads us away from our inner goodness and light. But at any time, you can turn toward God, ask for guidance, and become so full of the divine light that you can't imagine a life without it.
Life becomes better when you fully trust your divine purpose. Here are some signs that you're starting to change:
- You stop caring about buying lots of things and prefer spending time in nature.
- You lose interest in scary news and TV shows that don't help you grow.
- You make an effort to eat fresh produce, and might even give up alcohol.
- You always want to learn and consume more about spirituality.
- You see meaningful coincidences happening all around you.
- You can no longer engage in meaningless discussions and perhaps no longer feel aligned with the same people as before.
- You feel more love towards all and have begun to transcend judgment.
When you rise in the morning, give thanks for the light, for your life, for your strength. Give thanks for your food and for the joy of living. If you see no reason to give thanks, the fault lies in yourself- Tecumseh
