Wisdom on How to Live Life Book 2

The following article is extracted from
the book "Wisdom on Life and Death"
by Dr. Tommy S. W. Wong

Tom: Guru Harry, why do souls incarnate into bodies and come to Earth?

Guru: Okay, let’s go all the way back to the soul before it incarnates into a body.

Tom: Wow, that’s a really long way back.

Guru: Where is the soul before it incarnates into a body?

Tom: You mean Heaven?

Guru: Yes okay, for this discussion, let’s assume there is Heaven.

Tom: Right, Heaven above, Earth below.

Guru: And let’s assume the soul was in Heaven before it came down to Earth.

Tom: Okay, let’s assume all the souls live in Heaven when they are not attached to bodies.

Guru: Is Heaven nice or not?

Tom: Of course it’s nice.

Guru: Then, why did the soul come to Earth and take up a body?

Tom: Hmm yes, intriguing, I’m not sure.

Guru: Especially when there are so many problems on Earth.

Tom: Wa-lah, countless problems.

Guru: Indeed, so why would a soul want to come down to Earth and take up a body?

Tom: It baffles me. I really can’t comprehend why any soul would want to come to Earth when Heaven is so nice.

Guru: Maybe it wants to do something on Earth.

Tom: Uh, like what?

Guru: To help to make the world better.

Tom: You mean to help to solve some of the problems on Earth?

Guru: And to help humans to become better humans.

Tom: Hmm, that’s pretty noble.

Guru: And spiritual.

Tom: Yes, and divine.

Guru: Yes Tom, the soul may want to do something good for the world.

Tom: So, you mean the soul comes to Earth with a purpose?

Guru: Yes, and when the soul incarnates into a physical body, it has a purpose.

Tom: You mean soul’s purpose?

Guru: Yes, as it wants to do something physical on Earth.

Tom: You mean this is why the soul incarnates into a body?

Guru: Sure, so that it can use the physical body to do the physical work.

Tom: You mean the work like helping to make the world better?

Guru: And to solve some of the problems on Earth.

Tom: And to help humans to become better humans.

Guru: That’s it, Tom, the soul comes to Earth in a physical body with a mission.

Tom: You mean the soul has a mission to accomplish on Earth?

Guru: And this mission is its purpose in its physical life with the body.

Tom: I see. So, there is a purpose for the soul to live with the body.

Guru: Yes Tom, when you realize you are a soul, you live with a higher purpose.

Tom: And that is real spiritual living, right?

Guru: Actually, that is also real physical living.

Tom: You mean living with a physical body?

Guru: Yes, when you use your physical body to carry out a mission, it is real physical living.

Tom: And it is much better than using the body just to make a living, right?

Guru: Definitely, in fact this is how humans should live with their bodies.

Tom: Why?

Guru: Because it is more meaningful.

Tom: You mean this is the reason why we are living with our bodies?

Guru: Yes Tom, we are souls and have come to Earth to carry out a mission.

Tom: You mean we are all missionaries?

Guru: But many don’t know it.

Tom: Because they don’t know they are souls and not bodies.

Guru: And when the missions are completed, the souls leave their bodies.

Tom: So sad!

Guru: Actually, the souls don’t feel sad when they leave their bodies.

Tom: Oh, how come?

Guru: Because they know that is the purpose of living in bodies.

Tom: You mean the purpose is to use the bodies to carry out the mission?

Guru: Exactly, so when the mission is accomplished, it is time to go.

Tom: You mean it is time to leave the bodies?

Guru: Yes, and the bodies die.

Tom: Amen.
