Try, try again
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on.
--~Franklin D. Roosevelt
Last night a friend and I were talking about why we're here, you know, here, in a body, on this beautiful planet. I think often about my soul's purpose, which (according to my spirit guides) I'm lucky to have access to. They tell me that most people don't have any idea what their soul is up to, and furthermore, they don't have to know consciously in order to further their soul's work. Hmm. It's interesting to think about.
I believe that in this form, in our human bodies, we are capable of working through so much stuff, furthering our soul's purpose (whether we know what it is or not) in ways we could never do outside of corporeal existence.
Of course no one knows for sure, including me, but my theory at least is that in corporeal form, we clear karma for ourselves and our families, clans and such. I think we also create karma for ourselves and our families, by undoing, redoing, regluing, unscrewing, unwinding, rewinding the energy and events of our life stories. Goodness, we are very busy while alive. Everything we do contributes to the soul's purpose, according to my cosmology, from scrubbing the kitchen floor to laughing out loud, in our relationships or lack thereof, good deeds as well as the things we do that we regret after the fact. Even our suffering seems to be a part of how we clear and create, at least it looks that way to me.
Besides creating/clearing according to the soul's purpose, during incarnation, we serve the life force. I perceive life force as a mighty oversoul in this realm. It is so powerful! We hang on, hang in, push through, as hard as we can, don't we? All I can say is: wow.
