There is another part of you: your non-physical inner being. And that other part of you - that God force within you - adores that which you are. And the sooner you get to that self adoration, the sooner that you will allow the Energy that is really you to flow.
You are extensions of source energy. You have come forth as leading edge creators. You're not here broken, groveling, trying to earn your way back into the grace of something that is complete and finished.
You are the leading edge extensions of that.
You are GOD, embodied in physical bodies, taking thought beyond that which it has been before. But if you are not letting the Source Energy, that you are, flow to you and through you, then you cannot begin to do what you've come here to do.
So you say, "Oh, good, now we're getting to it. Why am I here? What did I come here to do?" And we say, you came here to have exposure to more joyful experience. And you say, "For what?" And we say, for exposure to more joyful experience. And you say, "Yes, but for what? I'm willing to pay any price I need to for that joy."
The only price you can pay for joy is joy. You cannot suffer for joy.
"Well," you say, "maybe I'm not here for joy. Maybe I'm here for growth?" You cannot cease the expansion of the Universe. You cannot stop doing your part in that expansion, because you are consciousness focused. And as you focus upon the variety, new desires are concluded within you, and Life Force is summoned forward -- and you are fulfilling your reason for being. And then, if your objective is joy, it all comes together in the way that you've intended.
You say, "Hmm, joy. The purpose of my life is joy? I'm here to pleasure myself? Surely, no good can come from that! Isn't that about greed and selfishness and all of those things that I've been encouraged not to be?"
And we ask, who encouraged you? Other greedy, selfish people? "Don't serve your desires, serve mine," they say.
Universal Laws are always consistent. And if expansion of the Universe is a good thing, then your expansion is, too. If God is good, then you, as an extension of that, must be, too.
