Competition is the contrast to enlightenment, without it how would truly know what enlightenment is. There must be contrast in all things, each must have its opposite for us to gravitate to our truest desires.
Names are more than the labels we have to identify us and objects. The names given to objects are defined or categorized by us. This makes it easier for our minds to grasp the purpose of the object. The names we have are chosen by us, our souls. Times our parents don't hear us when we spiritually speak to them, telling them what we desire our name to be. On a small level this can create an identity problem, but seldom does. There is power in the names we speak. This power comes from the strength of the soul with the name.
When most of us think of temples, we think of a gathering place of worship, a place to pay homage to God or "God Like Figure". The true temple is the light in us. The place where we go within to pray and receive answers to the prayers prayed. When we meditate or pray, we sit in our temple to commune with the Divine Source. We sit in the sanctum of oneness to voice our intentions. Our intentions are carried on light waves to be heard and shared with the Divine Source.
Each individual experience is an incremental part of a lesson or challenge. These experiences add up to the total life lesson. Each individual of the collective life lesson is different, yet similar. As previously spoken, our true purpose is enjoyment, but we have to learn to experience our personal joy. As young children we learned to experience joy effortlessly. We were detached from the world and all that mattered was our joy.
When we think of Soul Mates, we usually think of the one person/soul that is meant for us to spend the rest of our life with. We search endlessly for this one soul, and when we find a soul matching our vibration, we feel and know they are "the one".
This ten year journey of gratitude has taught me many perspectives of this beautiful energy we allow, once recognized in the daily life. This journey, like many started out with the feeling of being lost and experiencing multiple life changing events.
The validation of progress is a measurement of our life's path. During the course of our over arching life we venture on many life paths, all connecting to the singular path of purpose. The life path chosen is one of personal destiny, one of where many lessons are learned, one where joy is found in the outcome and revelations. How do we measure our progress?
Natural orders are the order in which life moments or events occur and flow effortlessly. When we struggle willfully in our routines, making choices, and all the like, we are not in our natural flow or order. Though we have free will to choose what is desired, there is a process to be followed, hence the natural order. For example, we have come to know it is natural for a baby to grow up and mature, to us this make the most logical sense. The natural order at most times makes the most logical sense.
Grounding self is becoming set in the life purpose intentions. In order to ground self, we first must clear away any debris. The debris we carry is emotional and can cloud our thoughts, actions, and block any newness coming in to our life. We have been conditioned to hold our emotions in, to repress our true feelings to a point where we are weighted down or at times emotionally explode. Yet when do finally clear our self, there is so much residual emotional stuff, a lot is left behind.
