We are one with God when we are born and remain so until we leave this material world. The only thing truly special that can happen while we’re here is if we wake up to these truths and directly experience the love and light of God which is within all of us. Sometimes we wake up to this bliss and beauty, but more often we don’t.
But, if we don’t wake up, that’s OK, too. Because, we are each manifestations of the universe (God) being aware of itself, whether that awareness is good or bad. “The rain falls on the unjust well as the just” and everything that means.
And, more importantly, we are that universal awareness whether we are aware of that awareness or not.
Life can’t be love and bliss exclusively for the same reason everything can’t be up and day. The world requires down and night, too.
Both the physical and the metaphysical require the positive AND the negative. Likewise, the world requires the unaware as well as the aware.
Unfortunately, for our egos, we can’t ALL be angels or “enlightened.” If that were to happen, there wouldn’t be anything to keep the universe in motion! Just like an electric motor won’t spin if it doesn’t receive both positive and negative currents.
I suppose the world needs spiritual ditch diggers, too. I have a strong back, so I’m cool with that.
