Our Purpose Here on Earth.

A response to a soul seeking answers.

"I am very depressed. I am lonely and can't find my/a purpose. I have a wonderful husband and a home so I feel guilty that I can't get my act together. Our 19 year old son moved in with his girlfriend and spends his days smoking pot.  The charities that I used to pour myself into seem out of my reach now. Our social life is spottly unless I initiate something no one asks us to join them.  I just started seeing a counselor so maybe that will help, but I feel I have so much to offer and have no idea how to find that outlet.  My brother died almost two years ago, my mother is in the last stages of alzheimer's, my wonderful husband has health problems and tires easily although he has a brilliant career.  I just never actualized my potential.  Please pray that I can find my reason for being.  God bless you and thanks for the prayers."

A response:

I feel for you dear sister. I call you sister because we are all children of our Heavenly Father. God has clearly been taking well care of you - providing for your needs here on earth. There comes a time, however, when we awake from our sleep walking and start to look around. We start to ask questions. Is this all that there is? What have I done with my life? Why am I not happy? I should feel fulfilled but I do not. The things that made me once happy do not any longer. How do I get out of this depression, this merry-go-round that keeps repeating itself? I have asked myself these same questions and I have found some answers through prayer. I'm not perfect and I'm not always happy and on top of my game. But I can honestly say that true happiness comes from developing our relationship with God.

Speaking from personal experience, I have been very blessed. I have a Ph.D., been interviewed on the NBC nightly news, gave scientific talks all over the world. I have a wonderful family with a wife and three children. I have a wonderful job working on the end of a pier in Hawaii. I have so much to be thankful for and to be happy about. And while all these things has brought me some happiness, I have never been as happy when God touches my heart with His Love - when I pray to receive God's Divine Love into my soul.

For example, I was driving home from work one day praying to God for His Love to enter my soul. As I was praying I was feeling a warmth in my soul and my vision or perspective changed. I was noticing the incredible beauty all around me. It was so beautiful, like I was seeing it for the very first time. Happiness was welling up inside me and tears started to flow from my face. My happiness continued to increase. I grew happier and happier as I praised God for this glorious planet that He has provided for us. Tears were streaming down my face and I had a huge smile. Happiness like that only comes from God. He wants us to be happy, to be fulfilled, to find our purpose here on earth.

So what is our purpose? Well, the basic purpose of every individual here on earth is to become individualized by taking on a physical and spiritual body. Once we have incarnated our primary purpose has been fulfilled. Higher purposes come later and we may not discover our true purpose here on earth for many years later. In addition, we may not discover the spiritual gifts that God has given us for many years. Many people are born and die without discovering their higher purpose and their spiritual gifts. It takes courage to ask the questions. It takes courage to seek the Truth.

You are beginning to ask the right questions. You will receive answers. Ask God for clarity of Truth and to show you the way. Ask to know your higher purpose here on earth and for help in achieving that purpose. You have a spirit band - a group of loving spirits who have volunteered to assist you in during your life on earth. Ask them for help. Ask for their loving influence and protection from lower spirits who do not have your best interest at hand. One of the greatest gifts that God has given us is free will. The angels and our guides are limited in their ability to help us because of our free will. But we can use our free will to ask and allow them to help us.

You are special, you are loved, you are gifted, you are a light in a world of darkness. Come to know yourself and your relationship with God. Your gifts and your purpose will be revealed as you surrender your will to God and allow His Love to enter into your soul.

I have included the prayer for Divine Love below. If you are ready to know the Truth of God and your relationship with Him, pray this prayer three times daily for at least 2 weeks. Try to pray with earnestness and sincerity, not simply from your mind. You must mean it and actively desire God's Divine Love to flow into your soul. You must be ready to let go and allow God to come into your life.

God bless you. I will pray that our Heavenly Father sends His angels to your side to guide and protect you. I will pray that He sends His Divine Love into your soul in great abundance. I will pray that you find your gifts and that your higher purpose be revealed.

Feel free to contact me anytime with questions. My higher purpose is to help souls come to know our Father through the Truth of His Love.

Rev. Michael

Our Father, who art in heaven, we recognize:

That Thou art--art all holy and loving and merciful, and that we are the children of Thy care, and not the subservient, sinful and depraved creatures that our false teachers would have us believe.

That we are the greatest of Thy creations and the most wonderful of all Thy handiwork's, and that we are the objects of Thy great Soul's love and tenderest care.

That Thy will is that we become at one with Thee and partake of Thy great love which Thou hast bestowed upon us through Thy mercy and desire that we become, in truth, Thy children--and not through the sacrifice and death of any one of Thy creatures, even though the world thinks that one Thy equal and a part of Thy godhead.

That Thou will open up our souls to the inflowing of Thy love, and that then will come Thy Holy Spirit to bring into our souls, this, Thy love in great abundance until our souls may be transformed into the very essence of Thyself; and that there may come to us faith--such faith as will cause us to realize that we are truly Thy children and that we are one with Thee in very substance and not in image only.

Let us have such faith as will cause us to know that Thou art our Father and the bestower of every good and perfect gift, and that only we, ourselves, can prevent Thy love changing us from the mortal to the immortal.

Let us never cease to realize that Thy love is waiting for each and all of us, and that when we come to Thee with faith and earnest aspirations, Thy love will never be withholden from us.

Keep us in the shadow of Thy love every hour and moment of our lives, and help us to overcome all temptations of the flesh and the influence of the powers of the evil ones who so constantly surround us and endeavor to turn our thoughts away from Thee to the pleasures and allurements of this world.

We thank Thee for Thy love and for the possibility of receiving it, and believe that Thou art our Father--the loving Father Who smiles upon us in our weakness, and is always ready to help us and take us to Thy arms of love.

We pray thus with all the earnestness and longings of our soul, and trusting in Thy love give Thee all the glory and honor and love that our finite souls can give.
