The Age of the Soul & The Purpose of You
By Michelle L. Casto
A Course in Miracles teaches that welfare of the world depends on you learning. Learning what you might ask? Learning to live a higher life and learning to actualize your humanity and mature into your divinity. The time for spiritual education is here. We can no longer cast a blind eye to the ills, wrongs, and general ignorance of our current reality. It is time for an end of the ego and the rise of the Soul.
Many prophecies about the Shift of Consciousness that is occurring between now and 2012 have emerged from ancient traditions of the Mayans, Hopi, Zulu. With this ending of a cycle comes a sense of loss and the opportunity for massive expansion.
A new consciousness is being birthed on the planet, I call it the Age of the Soul, because inner lights are being awakened and activated, causing humanity to grow its angel wings. We are blessed with the very real opportunity to ascend higher up the evolutionary scale, where we can experience our own version of heaven on earth.
You have everything you need to be a pioneer in this new age of practical spirituality. The good news is that the divine you is not something you need to create. God already did that. The divine you is the light and love that you are. Your job is to clear the blockages so you can shine bright.
The New energy arriving on planet Earth requires a new and upgraded human being, one in sync with their soul's purpose and strong in loving presence, a divine human. Now more than ever we are called to trust our inner knowing and make spiritually smart life decisions.
We live in an era that is inspiring souls to awaken and take action. Let everyone get in their destined place. It's time to for us to unite and create a bright new reality. This work requires the heart, hands, and intentions of as many people as possible. We will need to create new solutions to modern-day problems, and be called upon to work together collaboratively. First let us understand what the soul is. As C.S. Lewis so eloquently puts it:
Your answer to this question may reveal how ready you are to show up and shine:
- Reclaim your divine inheritance
- Accept that you are anointed and appointed to do great things.
- Take action on your desires and dreams.
- Shine your bright light.
In this great awakening, Truth will be revealed and most especially masks will be removed. Games and manipulations will be seen for what they are and the reign of the ego will end.
Socrates said that the purpose of life is the enlightenment of the soul vs the pursuit of materialism that leads to darkness. Since much of our history has been about the accumulation of things, it seems natural that in this Age of Soul, for a deep change to occur in where and how we find our happiness.
I hold the belief that the curriculum for our enlightenment has been set by our soul and that LIFE gives us the opportunities to collect the keys to our eternal wisdom. In life, we experience 3 major challenges:
Love---expressing and receiving love
Intellect---developing our mind and creating things.
Key 1: Conscious Learning
Learning is the connection for your soul's evolution. Knowing yourself is understanding both your personality and your divinity and creating a life that harmonizes with both aspects of your Self. Along the way, you may learn lessons, however, the main thing is to learn to be a conscious creator and masterfully apply the skills of cognition and choice to manifest a reality that you adore.
Key 2: Soul Purpose
To discover and live one's soul purpose is essential to your well being. Look within at your desires, dreams, aspirations, and longings that you carry in your heart of hearts.
Ask not, "Can I do it?" but "Will I enjoy it?" Ask not, "What can I get." Ask, "What Can I give?"
Fulfilling your purpose means creating a pathway to your soul's highest happiness and inner fulfillment, which can be expressed in 3 ways - universal purpose, personal purpose, and professional purpose.
Key 3: Conscious Creation
Understanding the idea that thoughts are things is the first step to re-creating your reality. Harnessing the laws of the universe such as law of attraction, law of action, law of reciprocity, law of intention, etc. will make this effortless.
The first and most important step is to make the decision to be happy and successful. Keep in mind, the brain does not make the human, the human makes the brain by what he thinks about, focuses on, and what he allows to influence his thinking. A classic explanation of all this comes from the book, As a Man Thinketh by James Allen:
Light energy from heaven guides my path and from here my genius shines brightly.
