Whether you agree with me or not, there is a world beyond what our physical eyes can see. You ought to agree with me that there are forces that are against you and that there are forces in favour of you. How these forces operate within your life has to do with a lot of things, your background, your orientation to life, your value system, your beliefs, how you relate to your life.
The reason we worship, whether God, Allah, Yahweh, UMUNTU, we realise that our efforts are not enough for us to live this life. Something else, with the power beyond us, has to help us. Some people even go to an extent on calling the Universe to be on their side. Christians are very clear about the fact that the devil, satan, demons is up against them and the solution for Satan is God. Africans tend to talk about ancestors who might not be happy with some of the aspects of their lives, hence they have to attend to certain rituals to appease the ancestors. This article is not about the wrongness or rightness of people’s beliefs more than it is about my encounter with angels.
My experience tells me that we are up against a force (I choose to call it Satan) that is ready to annihilate us at any given opportunity so that we do not become the best that UMU (my revealed name for God) has created us to be. Many of us die without knowing our purpose and not living it because we do not know it. Many of us are constantly in survival mode, so that we die without giving to this world the best of ourselves. Even with the Corona Virus upon us, the decisions made are about their impact on the economy and not their impact on human lives. We are taught to be in survival mode all the time. Many, if not all, of the problems that assail humanity have solutions lying within other human beings. They are either ignorant of the fact that they have a solution or they are to fearful to implement what they know.
I am privileged to know my purpose and it is a beautiful space to be in. My purpose is I AM PEACE. Don’t despair. I was made aware of this purpose last year October and did not register this as my purpose. I discovered this purpose less than two months ago. I have lived what I think was a “successful” life but it is not, without me living my purpose. What is the use of a watch if it does not show people time? What is the use of a chair if nobody can sit on it?
Whatever conspiracy theories are there about the Corona Virus, I align myself with those who believe that the Corona Virus is changing the world for the better. I quote what a friend sent me on WhatsApp:
And the people stayed home. And read books, and listened, and rested, and exercised, and made art, and played games, and learned new ways of being, and were still. And listened more deeply. Some meditated, some prayed, some danced. Some met their shadows. And the people began to think differently. And the people healed. And, in the absence of people living in ignorant, dangerous, mindless, and heartless ways, the earth began to heal. And when the danger passed, and the people joined together again, they grieved their losses, and made new choices, and dreamed new images, and created new ways to live and heal the earth fully, as they had been healed. Kitty O’Meara.
Allow yourself to know your purpose. Once you know it, pursue it with all you have because that is the only reason you are here on earth. Take a day off, take a week off, take a month off and do whatever to find out what your purpose is. Once you do, you will experience the best of life like you have never before. Good luck!
