We rise from the same light we must return to. Each lifetime we spend is a mission. We have to complete each mission successfully in order to reunite with the light source. During our lifetime, we face many challenges: relationships, career, and finances. We spend a lot of time trying to overcome these challenges. We also spend a lot of emotion. Most of the time we win. But when we don’t, we feel as if we have failed. We feel there is no point going on. We lose our sense of stability, our grounding. Sometimes we may physically hurt ourselves or may even take our lives. Of course, this is sad for the people around us but we may not care. What point is it to go on when we feel so depressed? There seems to be no way forward, no end to our misery. This line of thinking doesn’t serve our highest good.
It is important to detach our minds from the material world’s problems for a few moments and realize at the soul level that this is just a challenge, a temporary situation. This is something that won’t last forever, for come what may, at the end of our lives we will reunite with the light! Then why worry so much? We are still connected to the Source at the soul level.
Great masters will talk about the need to ground oneself when working with spirituality or the spirit world. While that is true, it is also true that one must spiritually align oneself when living in the physical world. We must remember where we came from, what we are connected with, and where we will return after this life.
If we take a step back and look at the big picture, whether we succeed or fail doesn’t matter: we reunite with the Source in the end.
Why must we, then, agonize over the problems of daily life? They exist; they will be met. If we don’t have a solution now, we will have one later. Not everything may be, but some things are under our control—the ultimate truth that life is only an illusion.
