    Each one of us here on Earth is an Individualized Manifestation of the Very Source of All That Is!
    God is nothing but the Very Consciousness that pervades the entire Universe!!

    Your soul script or what all you will go through and what you will become is more or less decided before you are born, though many things are flexible and can be changed to a considerable extent based on the choices you make and the choices that others around you will make in your current life.

    Your soul script for the current life is decided by the sum total of experiences that you have had in your previous lives and the new lessons that your soul would want to go through in order to achieve a state of balance.

    The Real Purpose of Our Lives is to Have Blissful, Fulfilling, Enriching and Transformative Experiences. Our Soul Spirit needs these experiences and we keep reincarnating again and again until we have learnt all our lessons across the entire spectrum of experiences.

    As long as we don’t learn our lessons and keep repeating the same mistakes, we will keep going through the same experiences.

    Then, once the state of contentment is achieved, the soul spirit will have a choice of either achieving Nirvana (Dis-individualization and merging back with Source/Universal Godhead) or to take Greater responsibility and move on to newer experiences in higher realms / dimensions / universes.

    Thus, everyday, Learn to Live it King Size, stop living it pint size as it comes. Develop a Zest for Life and start creating opportunities for yourself.

    Take ownership and stop blaming God, rather be thankful to God for granting you this infinite Gift of Human Life.

    It doesn’t matter in what context you are born, in what family and settings you have grown up, know that this is how it was intended to be to enable you to have the required experience that your Soul seeks.

    In the process, different souls choose different paths, some choose dark/ service to self/ left hand path while other choose light/ service to others/ right hand path. There is no need to feel guilty about your past or present no matter what your background is because all will eventually merge and become One.

    How do you define yourself ?
    You are not a body with a soul within. You are an Immortal Soul having a Human Experience in your current physical body.

    We all come to this dimension in a state of forgetfulness. The Soul seeks to ‘re-member’ is true nature through the human experiences we have over a period of multiple sequential or simultaneous life times (Yes, Souls can have multiple simultaneous incarnations) across the entire spectrum of consciousness including Light/Dark/ Masculine(Solar)/Feminine(Lunar)/ Left Path/Right Path/ Collective/Individual/ Material & Spiritual perspectives.

    There is no judgement over the choices we make, if you make the right choice, you move on to the next set of Lessons with more advanced/complex experiences. If you repeat the same mistakes/keep making the same choices, you will keep coming across the same repetitive lessons again in your current or future lives.

    Always remember that the potential for the Greatest Good and the Greatest God is Already present in each one of Us, All we need to do is to unravel ourselves to the inner most core to uncover the true nature of our own reality that has the Highest Purity, the Greatest and the Mightiest Power of God within it.

    Once the Realization of God is Achieved Within, It is the Actualization of the Internal Christ. All past Karma can get instantly transmuted.

    Realize that each of our lives is invaluable and highly coveted, know that extra-terrestrials from far off stars desperately seek a human incarnation on Earth because this is where lessons are learnt. It is our planet that offers an environment for super fast learning and expedited evolution unlike anywhere else in the entire galaxy.

    The real evolution is that of the spirit and not the flesh, as our souls learn their lessons, the next birth may be in a more advanced body form in a different dimension commensurate with the settings needed for inculcating the next set of lessons on the souls incredible journey back to Godhead.

    The absolute truth is that the One Godhead (Paramatma) divided itself into infinite souls (Jeevatmas) so it could have infinite different experiences in infinite different ways.

    Life in this Universe is an endless pursuit of SAT-CHID-ANANDA. Sat (TRUTH) – Chid (KNOWLEDGE/WISDOM) and Ananda (BLISS/JOY/HAPPINESS).

    Everything is Science, Everything is Energy, Everything is God. There is no contradiction !

    What matters is to imbibe the Truth and accept your current state objectively and in a balanced manner. This way, we will be able to further advance the real purpose of our lives by contributing to the greater cause in whichever way we can and thus also serve the group consciousness (our soul families) in the most efficient manner.

    I searched for God everywhere, I only found myself !
    I searched for myself in everyone, I only found God !!

    The Source of Creation (Creator) Expresses itself, Observes itself and Understands itself further only through its Creation (Us the Created).

    The Moment the Creator reaches a state of Contentment with its understanding of itself, this Creation will wind up.

    What?

    Is there an actual argument hiding in there, or  just a bunch of  claims based on Hindu beliefs?

    The impression I get is that you are trying ever so hard to sound profound. Hasn’t worked.

    OR are you just a troll?

    Dang did it again, now you see now you don’t, but i perceive a pattern ;-),

    Meanwhile, back at the el rancho;

    If you were around in the 80’s, there is a good chance you have heard of Campbell. …

    There is a lot I could go in to here, but one of his central tenets answered a question for me that I have been working on for a long, long time. The question is, how do I know if something that I feel is right, is coming from my heart or from somewhere more base? Put another way, is it just a physical desire, or something my subconscious senses as a valuable course of action. In religious terms, is it God or the Devil speaking to me?

    … I felt I knew how to discern my inner voices, until a guy, who happened to be a raging alcoholic, someone who was very good at following his baser instincts, asked me to describe how I would know. It was more of a challenge really than a question. I couldn’t answer him. Now I could.

    Joseph Campbell calls it following your bliss. …

    I’m one of those who got hit by Campbell’s thinking fairly early, so his ideas of bliss and the heroes journey certainly influenced how my days wound up unfolding.  For me the bliss thing was about being brutal honesty with oneself – to know myself*, and that thing that drives me, as well as possible and beyond that doing the best you can with what you have.  Finding the calling life hand to you and embracing it.  Stuff like that.

     

    *As opposed to constantly conforming myself to other’s dogmatic beliefs, and worshipping a picture on the wall.

    Joe Campbell knew the power of Myth, the power of a good narrative, the power of a good story.  (As did Tyrion Lannister in the final episode of GoT. Sorry if no-one gets that reference who is not a GoT nut.)

    “The laws of physics as we understand them make
    it eminently plausible that our universe arose from nothing –
    – no space, no time, no particles, nothing that we now know of.”
    / Lawrence Krauss /

    Krauss contradicts some other things you’ve said socrat, so not sure what point you’re trying to make here

    Virtual particles ( -E=Mc^2 ) exist in the Universe of ”Nothing”,
    in the Dirac’s ”vacuum sea”
    It means, the Nature of reality exists in two worlds: Material and ”Nothingness”

    Normally at this point, I would say, “read a book”. But it seems you can find books and you might even be reading them. I’m not sure how well you are absorbing them, but that’s okay.

    Socrat, I be funny, but I appreciate that you seemed to try to elaborate on your point about reality being material and also nothing.  But I don’t think you have arrived at an elucidation of your point that is meaningful or useful to most readers.

    It does occur to me that “nothing” gives boundaries and thus definition to “something (aka matter).  Without “nothing” wouldn’t matter just be one big blob of (for all intents and purposes) nothing?  And what would “nothing” be without something? Double nothing?

    Perhaps Billy Preston should have said “you gotta have somethin’ AND nothin’, if you wanna be with me”.
