In meditation today I was contemplating the purpose of life in the human form. The concept has been understood to be that we take human form to develop our emotional body, but I sense there is more to it than that. When we are spirit, though we have an emotional body, one that can transform our spirit and allow it to grow, we do not have the capability to create as we do here on earth.
In a human form, we can create things that are solid, things that inspire others through our writings, words, actions, and voice. We can manifest incredible beauty that will affect others beyond our capacity to see. It is important that we do not loose sight of how we are inspiring others and the effect we can and do have on the world. Perhaps as the new year dawns, you might want to take a moment or two to reflect on how you have made a difference in this world, because we all do.
As I look back upon the last ten years, I recall how I have brought beauty into the world by remodeling four homes and their gardens. Granted I am no longer with two of these homes, but their beauty endures as do their gardens which continue to grow. Every person who walks by the land or enters the home has the opportunity to enjoy the love I placed there with my energy and creativity. Although it is up to the people who now live there to maintain what was originally created, I got the ball rolling, and even if the location deteriorates it does not diminish the love that has been anchored there.
When you look back at what you have accomplished do not get stuck in how those people, things, or locations are today. Recall your objective at the time and know your good intentions have anchored love onto this planet. And isn’t that what it is all about?
