You have been contemplating lately about “purpose” as your Earth undergoes tremendous changes. Some are saying that what is happening in parts of the world can be compared to the ravages of war. All the disasters are causing stress on your planet, rearranging parts of her, destroying what was and leaving behind barrenness in some places. You weep for the Mother. You cry out for those no longer there and collectively you ask why. Be assured, dear ones, this is not a punishment dealt out in response to mankind’s actions. When you encounter stressful situations in your individual life, you sometimes think of it as punishment, do you not? You use words like “karma” to try to make sense of why such a thing would happen to you. You are looking at it as if it is an outside force doing something against you for some reason and your human mind goes to work to explain it. Many teachers have tried to help you understand Oneness; yet, you continue to see yourselves as individual, as disconnected from the whole. In this solitude you imagine you have to continually defend yourself against the outside forces. You compare, criticize and judge others around you. You lose sight of your purpose for being here having this human experience. Just as you see Mother Earth being ravaged and question why it is happening to her, you see vulnerability in yourself and when something happens you immediately question why it is happening to you. Look at any situation you are experiencing in your human lifetime with your spiritual eyes instead of your human ego eyesight. When you take everything personally as though it is an attack on you, you lose sight of who you are and you stay in defense mode. You are a spiritual being. This human body you are inhabiting is only for a short duration. Open up to what your purpose is for being here at this particular time. Get your mind off the perceived attacks and focus on how you can help be part of the solution for the collective whole. Tap into that connection of Oneness. It is there in that place that you will find the peace you are seeking and your purpose will be clear.
