If you have “why” translated as “for what purpose”, then I have to disappoint.We have no purpose. We’re just there. Make a goal in your life for yourself, after all, you die only once.
If you “why” translated as “for what reason”, then coincidence plays a role.We are just a confluence of circumstances. Evolution ensured that we can ask that question because our brains are specialised and we are able to think abstract. And because we can, we quickly think that we are here on earth with a reason and that there is a goal associated with it. But think of all those other living organisms, which also have a “why” but they probably cannot think about it. Now get your biggest empathic power up and move in their head (compare with your first days of life). Then you will notice that you are “just”. And now try to get back from that head, because with this you lost the intellectual abilities to return to your own head (Boutade, but still stand still):-).
That’s luckily easy to answer, because I’ve learned this in school.
What are we on Earth?
We are on Earth to serve God and be happy here and in the hereafter.
But when I was a year or 16, I lost my (Catholic) faith.Does not give anything, it becomes:
We are on Earth to be happy here and in the afterlife.So far so good.
But yes, I did not even believe in the afterlife.Even easier:
We are on Earth to be happy here.
What is essential is the personal pronoun: ‘ we ‘, not: I am on earth to be happy here, but we.I can live well with that. The intent of my existence is to allow others and myself to live a good life. All the rest is elaboration and side-matter. Other people have other or no intention with their lives. Also fine, if that makes them happy.
But if they are unhappy, they do something not quite right, at least according to my old and simplified catechism.
Because the earth has brought you to Earth.The biblical allegory is so crazy yet that man is made of the Earth on the field.
His: Unity, unconditional love, forgiveness, general interest
I: Individual, self-interest, needy, selfishness, desire,
Pain, hurt, shame, anger, hatred, revenge, violence.
Unconscious, imbied, cleft, ignorant.
The deeds, feelings, thoughts, words come back to the owner, the perpetrator.
It is important to try to know the position and interests of others so that in a possible dispute the interests of both parties can be respected.
Mighty Masters Commit terror against the weak slaves.
The mighty abuse their supremacy at the service of self-interest, selfishness.
The authorizing tones are misbehaving, looking down at the faint they see as inferior.
The mighty still deny their cruel crimes against the weak.
The authorizing must still heal their blind spots.Once they have to face the naked truth, admit their crimes and acknowledge their genocides.
The way forward for the unconscious, imperfect man is to raise awareness of his feelings and innerness, ask forgiveness, give forgiveness and forgive himself.
The path is growing in self-knowledge, knowledge of great Spirit (Intelligent energy that bears the universe) and relaxing in joy.
The dance between me and his, a consciousness path whereby I can integrate and express each time more being.
The one/are in me.
The encounter and interaction between the vulnerable hours awakens the ‘ hurt child/Unconscious man ‘, brings cracks in the mask.
Gives the authentic self-opportunity to be freed from the dungeon.
In Our adult life, the other is a mirror, a teacher.The scholarly lesson brings more are in the I.
Life is a psychodrama school.The actual harvest of a life is truth, wisdom, honesty, capacity to unconditional love, to empathy, to see the other as someone with the same rights and interests as yourself. More light, a greater proportion of being able to integrate through awareness into the I, is also the valuable thing that man can take to the next less physical (spiritual) worlds.
Man is a consciousness with about 7 bodies.At death, man leaves the physical and energetic body behind and continues to live in another less physical world with the other bodies: the feelings, the thought, the ‘ unconditional love ‘, the ‘ will of the creator ‘, ‘ The miracle ‘. With each body there is a corresponding world of coarse material to fine material.
An angel is a creature without a physical body that has purified his emotional and mind body and lives in a less physical world.In each dimension the ‘ consciousness-being ‘ probably has a different name.
The coarse world is a classroom, a field of work where the nature of the lower three-part bodies in the fire of the experience is refined, so that the spiritual light and love can shine through.This awareness process continues through the cycle through the two next, less physical worlds, that of feelings and thought. This “consciousness-being” continues to reincarnate in the physical world again and again until the objective is reached, the purification of the feelings and the thought, so that it can come to full expression.
We are a chemical process, and what the implications of being there is easy to underestimate.But when we look around at our peers, other things that happen, and the complexity of ‘ living ‘ compare to the fall of a stone, then it is not so strange that we believe that we are something different. But what exactly is there to be? With our existence we have been given the order to happen, only we use other verbs for ‘ doing ‘ than for ‘ being ‘. Not that I think we are only checked from the outside: maybe there are several things that can be from the result at any time. And I do not know if it is so bad that we are not more than we are. After it has happened it is also about.
