This is a large question that everyone asks at some point in their lives and of which many have written.
Although this may seem like a very long answer, it is truly only a slight touch upon the many facets of this question, bringing the basics to allow you to have a greater understanding and point of reference to know the answer for yourself.
When we as an individual ask this question, we are usually looking at it from a personal point of view, who exists separate from everyone else. We aren’t usually asking how the answer will affect others outside of our family, friends, co-workers or people in our direct sphere of influence. If we are highly ego driven we may view this question from a strictly personal perspective of how to obtain wealth, power and influence over others, and to understand the ways and means of doing this.
Due to the fact we were all granted the gift of choice by the Creator, each point of view is part of the learning process of our life on Earth. It feels like I should clarify this perspective more fully, before moving forward in sharing about the answer to our question. For this may help you to clarify which perspective you have when you ask the question and what affect that perspective has on your answer.
Creation is constantly in a state of expansion and contraction. We expand creation and life to the point where adjustments are needed in order to unify, realign and rebalance creation. We are in the point of realignment and rebalancing along the creational model.
There are myriads of life forms, known and unknown, upon the earth and in the cosmos. Some life forms have remained aligned to the Divine Will or of the Creator and the vision of a unified and balanced existence of joy, peace, exploration and expansion which benefits all Existence and Life. Some might say they have no freedom of choice, or perhaps they have chosen not to separate, but to continue to receive the Blessings and infinite wisdom of the Creator.
However, at one point in time there were ones who chose to forge a path directed by their personal will to fulfill their own desires and wants. This is a story we have heard about on earth for millennium, and yet we still do not have the total truth of this story, but one day we will. For this writing I simply touch upon the moment when personal choice occurred and the future of life on Earth emerged.
You may wonder why the Creator gave us freedom of choice if staying in Unity with the Creator is so wonderful. This was just one aspect or pathway of expansion of Creation which the Creator envisioned to see how it would come to fruition. Think of it like when a parent sees their child go off to ride their bike alone or go to school. They are concerned because they know that they can be hurt, but they also know that this is part of the process of growth, so they give them advice, and let them go.
In the case of the Creator, ALL LIFE exists within the Creator and is part of the Creator, so the Creator is simply like a parent allowing a part of itself to go forth and explore. Hoping as the parent that the child will make the right choice along the way, not antagonize others so they are hurt, or get lost, but trust they will return home. In this case a hope we will one day choose to seek the guidance, and conscious unity with the Creator and to rebalance and align back to Oneness, Blessings and Peace.
Since we are part of the Creator, and all exists within the Creator, we are part of each other and all that exists. The only separation occurs within our minds. Thus, when we choose to hurt another, we are hurting a part of ourselves and a part of the Creator. The Creator knows every hair on our head for it is a part of the Creator. The Creator knows every rock and animal for they are part of the Creator.
Earth like other planets has a creational matrix. This matrix is a system where every thought and choice we make contributes to the mass memory and consciousness of the planet. This is a large topic that requires so much more for complete understanding than I am able to share in this writing. The main point we need to know is that every choice we make, action we take, or words we speak go into the memory record of earth and affect what manifests to differing degrees the experiences of ALL LIFE.
On Earth we enter life as a soul into a physical body, our vehicle to operate on earth, to experience all we can in this incredible school of learning about how to be part of creation through freedom of choice. The Creator and Beings outside of our Earth matrix are watching to see how far we will take this experiment and finally choose to be free and experience the greater existence, here on earth and in the cosmos.
We created the CHAOS we are experiencing through our choices throughout recorded history. Throughout time ones have chosen ware, famine, hatred, anger, prejudice, abuse, violence and other debilitating experiences and actions over love, peace, compassion and unity. These were all created by EGO choices. When enough people make the same choices, it becomes a prominent part of the matrix of consciousness and a stronger choice for ones to make and with which to identify.
Let’s take this to a more personal point of view to understand. If you have the choice of moving to another location and buying a new home. This choice only affects yourself, your family and people close to you. It most likely has no long term or harmful affects on ones outside your sphere of influence. However, say you are a King, President or other type of ruler and you decide you want to expand your empire. However, you don’t want to purchase the land you want, you are going to send you military to take over the land, force the people off, fight a war or kill them to have what you want so you have more power and influence in the world. This choice has greater ramifications and influence on the collective memory and consciousness on earth. For ones are displaced and harmed by this action and it sets forth a pattern for others with ambitions of power and influence to utilize in their choices.
They are both choices about moving forth and obtaining something different or more that doesn’t belong to you at the moment, but the affects are far different. Had the leader made a different choice, much, pain and sorrow could have been avoided and they would have opened the door for more people to make a greater choice that brings about a better experience and outcome for ALL.
So, with this perspective, let’s focus back to the question.
WHY AM I HERE?
We are here to learn to make better choices, which align with the higher perspective of what is good for ALL LIFE. We are here to learn how our thoughts, words and deeds affect not only ourselves but the entire world. To individualize these choices , the difference is what are the greater affects of our choice.
What do we do?
We need to learn to stop before we make a choice, whether that choice is still only a thought, or is at the point of being spoken or an action taken. We need to realize when we take action upon our choose it will have ramifications.
How do we make a better choice?
It is about taking responsibility for our thoughts, words, deeds and choice on a personal level first. Then we can move towards working together with others for making better choices on expanded levels of cities, countries and the world. When we start making these inspired choices for ourselves, it also adds to the creational matrix of earth to add this to the choices that all humanity has and begins to clear the chaotic input that is there. Then we can begin to work together to create a better world of love, joy, abundance and compassion for everyone. For since we are all part of the Creator, like a parent would for their child, all the Blessings are available to us, and no one has to do without when we all work together in unity.
How to begin?
Begin by stopping before you think, speak and act. Turn your attention inward to the heart. Think about the most loving experience you have had, allow that feeling to expand and then focus upon the question, thought, or action you were contemplating. Ask for guidance and then listen to the intuitive response you hear or sense. The better choice will ultimately benefit all. Once we take responsibility for our personal choices and actions we can begin to ask and seek to clear the choices we have made prior that have had a negative effect upon ourselves and others. We can then work together to create a better world for everyone and to clear from the collective memory choices made on a greater level that have negatively impacted ALL LIFE.
Why am I here?
You are here to learn how to live a life of balance, you, peace, harmony, abundance and good health for yourself and ALL LIFE by making choice based on love and compassion and taking actions which work for the benefit of ALL LIFE. It begins with a choice to live a life of service to make this a better world. There is sufficient abundance of all things for all life. When we move into conscious alignment with our inner light and love we realize there is nothing to fear.
The Creator did not allow us freedom to choose without providing for the redemption, realignment and rebalancing of this choice. There is a redemptive energy available to us. The purpose is to help us to learn to make unified choices. These redemptive energies are focused within our heart. Some refer to these energies as Christ, the Redeemer, the Comforter, Holy Spirit, Universal Consciousness, Mashiach, I am Presence, Higher Self, Maitreya, Saoshyant, Kalki, Li Hong or any other name which your spiritual belief system may use.
Our heart is the point of contact and needs to be opened and expanded to guide the mind into higher perspective and divine choices. It is the doorway at which we need but knock and ask and it shall be opened unto us. Seek the greater wisdom and love for yourself and all life, and share it with others.
THIS IS YOUR PURPOSE. The purpose for all of us.
This is the most important work you can do. It begins with you and your next choice, action or words. STOP, think and go within to your heart. Is it TRUE, HELPFUL, INSPIRING, NICE and KIND? Think. You heart will guide you if your enter it in love.
IT IS TIME – to make a better choice.
