Many people ask what the purpose of life is here on earth. It seems to be one of the eternal questions that is thought provoking and emotive, depending on your view of life, death, and why we come here.
Firstly, we choose to come to earth to have experiences and feel life through our five senses. Being on earth in earth school is a chance to really connect with the magic of human life and Mother Nature.
Secondly, we choose to come here to develop and grow. We decide upon some areas that we need to learn about, and then we come here to work through the lessons. These can be anger, love, forgiveness, sadness, joy, jealousy, cruelty, narcisicism, bigotry or any other lessons that we have chosen to learn. As we learn the lessons that we agreed to, we pass on the information to others and this way we help humanity to grow.
Thirdly, we come to develop spiritual awareness. We learn about the two states of being – either love or fear– and we learn to choose to live from the heart instead of the mind.
The fourth reason we come here is to be of service to others. We learn that material possessions are no replacement for the joy of being in service and we find ways to assist mankind and the planet. This can come in many forms- whether or not you are a teacher, a dinner lady, a librarian, a doctor or nurse, a writer, a taxi driver, or a street cleaner- you can be helping others in many ways and all of them are being of service.
The fifth reason we come to earth is to experience pure joy. If we are able to attain this wonderful feeling, we help to raise the frequency on earth. There are many ways on earth that we can simulate this feeling, but the essence of pure joy is to be found when we are truly at peace with ourselves and the universe. This happens very infrequently in this world, but when it does, it helps to raise the frequency of the planet for everyone.
Whatever your beliefs are, these are five of the reasons that we come to earth. It is evident that there are many more. However you would answer this question yourself, it is a fact that we are here, and we need to make the best use of our time on this planet for future generations.
No matter why we choose to come to earth, we are here and we need to be conscious and act with integrity and authenticity. Be the best version of yourself that you possibly can so that you really make good use of your short time here.
