Your life is about to change irreversibly. Of course, you do have the option of taking the coward’s way out, right now! Yes, life is about choices. So, pause for a moment and reflect, because there is no turning back from what is about to be revealed to you.
Our future on Earth appears to be destined for disaster. Depending on your background or religious beliefs, you may even regard this as an undeniable fact. It is sensible to be somewhat uneasy about our future, but there is no need to be exceedingly concerned. How can this be? Well, a simple decision has been made by many of us. Many of us have faced this choice. And now it is your turn.
You can continue chasing your own tail in the world economic circus to earn more, possess more, control more, fear more, or destroy more. You can drown yourself in information overload or opt to lounge around in La-La Land – drugs, sex, television, dogmatic religion. You can continue to hop from one relationship to another, change careers, move from country to country, or adopt several different religions. These are all very worthwhile pursuits, even if they don’t bring you any lasting peace or fulfillment.
And those who are in the know also realize that we have the Divine duty to change our ways for the better, as well as the world we live in. If you know this, you will also know that the solution is simple. Each of us has a job to do, a duty to ourselves and to others and to the planet.
It is not about making money, having children or chaining ourselves to endangered trees (although you are most welcome to keep up that good work). If we want to have even the slightest chance of making our lives on this planet worthwhile and our future more meaningful, we have to develop ourselves spiritually.
There, I said it. The "S" word!
Spirituality should become the main purpose of your life, if it is not already. Should you decide to accept your spiritual path, you will have the power to change far more than just yourself, your community or your nation. You have the potential to permanently transform our species.
Now, to become more spiritual in this insane asylum we used to call Mother Earth is easier said than done. Many of us simply have no idea how to go about this. And if we do, what is the point? This is what I hope to reveal to you in this new blog: the true meaning of your life and how to finally grab hold of it and make that difference.
