Are you living your soul purpose?

Time flies when you are having fun (doing what you love). Have you had fun lately? Are you living your soul purpose and are you guided by the Great Spirit – the nameless source of all creation, some people call God? Big questions like these require skillful answers.

Do you remember The Nothing in The Neverending Story? The Wolfgang Petersen movie had a happy ending that is not so far fetched from the truth when you think about it. The main character Bastian was forced to (re)-imagine the world after it had been completely obliterated by the Nothing that stopped at nothing. Since our world is also going to be exactly the way we imagine it (that’s a fact of life), everyone has to be ultra-careful to understand of what’s really going on. And what’s really going on is that we are ALL powerful co-creators. We co-author our story here on the planet at every moment in our interconnected lives. So, let me ask you this: do you imagine the future as a worst case scenario (world war, annihilation, an overheated planet, pestilence, death, total control), or as paradise on Earth? Which of the two scenarios is more likely to unfold if you use your logical thinking and believe the story you’ve been told by the mass media, religious organizations and your immediate environment? And how do you feel deep inside your heart?

Some experiments in consciousness are very interesting. As conscious beings we perceive and create consciousness. Being born gives us the opportunity to question everything and experiment with our bodies and our minds. Questioning and paying attention to where we source information is crucial! Not watching or reading the news and detoxing from social media for a while and doing (crazy) things like gazing at the sunrise and set, spending large parts of our time in nature, hugging trees, traveling and exploring unknown inner and outer territories, running around naked, feeding on herbs, drinking clean water straight from the source, gathering mushrooms and eating wild berries, mindfully meditating, creating art, stretching, walking, swimming, dancing and performing random acts of kindness will make you feel a lot different and certainly more alive than sitting on a couch, mindlessly consuming media, without a worthy perspective to live for – just escaping and wasting precious life time. If life goes to hell and paradise is lost, we might as well drink ourselves to death, right? NOT! Our collective conditioning goes deep and one could come to the irrational conclusion that we are under an evil spell – a sort of mass hypnosis. But it’s not that simple and certainly not evil, because in truth, everything is ONE. What does that actually mean? 

Naturally, we’ve been evolving over millions of years to avoid whatever we interpret to be painful and harmful to us. Even Buddha started investigating life when he saw old age and death beyond the palace walls. He was so earnest about changing the course of his life that he left his riches – his entire kingdom – behind, to find a way out of the misery. Even though he was materially set for life and was given anything he wanted he was spiritually discontent and needed to find out for himself what it means to be free (of suffering).

The good news is, there is nothing real out there, besides love. Love is the master key to liberty, freedom, physical-, emotional-, and spiritual wellbeing, healing and awakening. It’s a fact people care for each other. For every valuable piece of nature being destroyed there are people fighting for the preservation and everyone is looking for love, wants to be loved, and share love. It sounds so simple to wake up lovingly and collectively from the survival story we’ve been telling ourselves. Yes, WE have been limiting ourselves through the acceptance of collectively erroneous world views that are imaginary too! There’s nobody else to blame for our situation, however good and bad we judge it to be – certainly not God, our parents, circumstances, or the government. There are people in the world without arms and legs, without the capacity to move one muscle in their bodies and THEY have created a happy life for themselves. How can that be possible? Because anything is. 

Every moment of our lives counts and an intelligent human being naturally understands when enough is enough. In life, we get what we tolerate! But because the pain of slow suffering in complacency is smaller than the pain of uncertainty, it usually also requires an insurmountable amount of pain to move (most of) us forward. That’s why big figgures, like the Dalai Lama, Krishnamurti, Ammaji, Sadhguru, Gandhi, Jesus, MLK, Joe Dispenza, Tony Robbins, etc. have gone through a lot (of suffering). What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. But how much more (self) deception, clinging to control, tolerating lies, being rejected and locked up does it take to make a move? The raw truth is, it takes your lifetime-investment to spiritually transform yourself (awaken to the living embodied truth). But it helps to join a family of already awakened beings and individuals who have dedicated their lives towards spiritual awakening. It is said that the ordinary (people) learn from suffering and the extraordinary learn from watching others suffer. This is not arroganz. It is also said that the ordinary pray to God (develop the belief and faith) out of fear (usually when very sick or death approaches) and the extraordinary out of love.  

The transformation from fear to love is not only possible, but it is inevitable. It is our soul purpose! All life in all realities and dimensions will eventually bounce back to love. It is the dance of the Nataraja that brings us back to source – a fire so powerful, incorruptible and pure that it burns all impurities. The destroyer of ignorance leaves nothing untouched. Thank God – for that!

One of the greatest joys is living for giving while asking (praying) to receive the divine guidance that are insights and instructions on how to follow the godly will, a loving inspiration in the moment. It is easier to directly connect with the source of all creation when knowing that God is not only found in the sky, but also in the Earth and in space. The nameless formless omnipotent … penetrates every living and nonliving life form and energetic being everywhere. The secret to connecting with that part of yourself is to tune silently, through meditative states, into your heart. When the inside merges with the outside, as above – so below, when reflection ceases to exist and truth (love) remains as pure being, then you know you’ve not only joined the club of awakening beings, but you’ve graduated. Nobody can observe your imaginary world the way your authentic self can when meditating insightfully and momentarily – always here and always now.

With unconditional love & compassion, Omananda
