I think there are several ways to look at our purpose here. My perspective is that we are here to fullfill our creative purpose, and that each of us has a different purpose or role, or mission, or spiritual growth to obtain. I am a Christian mystic in the view that I feel that Yeshua comes to fullfill the law, and is the way, the truth, and the life. I also believe and understand that some of us as souls have been here before, and thus we carry a certain soul memory, certain talents, certain natural gifts, gifts that we can perhaps manifest more when we accept this, remember, or are reminded. For me with Astrology, it is like pieces of a puzzle coming together, and a depth of understanding the completes the picture. The personality test I took here, and the reality of my life, coupled with what the various astrological experts or astrologer's in their various feilds of expertise, have given me a missing part of the puzzle. The other part I have found in the ancient texts, and including those in the Bible, and the missing concepts that have been purposely twisted, and hidden from us. I think we are not only to fullfill our creative purpose, but I think we (Christians) are to be a witness and testimony to the greatness, wonder, and awesomeness of the Creator, and the perfect and completed work of Yeshua in his sacrifice for us.
I subscribe to many views, and keep an open mind, but I also know what first hand experience in both magic, and in study, has shown me by witness.
I have seen real spirits, and delt with very real demons, and other's have seen this... even the use of the cybershaman for example, with very real effect, valid manifestation. That may be hard for most to accept, but yet we have a U.S. President that is admittedly involved in an occult order, one which at the very heart is involved in magick, and the mysteries. I am not promoting these arts, but I have a certain crooked wisdom perhaps, if you will, from my dive and journey into it, and through that underworld... (also from my illness previously).
While I believe in reincarnation, I believe in the Creator's Universal law. I also believe in the dark side, and how they are moving for this battle being staged upon the world scene, all focused to a great extent around the Temple Mount and Israel, and the United States of America. Why? Mystery Babylon and Israel are a major part of the prophetic puzzle.
I may be getting off topic, yet these are realities evidence demonstrates already present. I think the answer also lies within, and that your connectedness to your own intuition is important also.
For me, I've been through hell and back, and I just know, I have nothing to sell here in terms of a church, or some specific religion, but I just know that Yeshua and his blood sacrificed for us, and my belief and faith in God, my reaching out for him, has lead me to the knowledge that I have, and perhaps some of the people I have found. I may fail him, but he has yet to fail me. I'll tell you, I would have dreaded to have been Job.
I would think that spiritual growth and evolving, maturing, going through lessons and relations with other souls is part of the purpose too... but while I do believe in an accept reincarnation, I also very much believe in Revelations as I currently interpret it (I am looking into other interpretations, but I have a sense of knowing about my current personal revelation, understanding, and the timing and way in which it was revealed or that I stumbled upon it...) the final judgement before God, the Akashic records, the Karneith records,,, which is a part of the amanita mushroom experience, and the near death experience panoramic life reveiws.
My experience with very real demons, and with witnessing the power of Yeshua's blood and authority over them (see The Fallen Ones at www.truinsight.com for a serious study of this), and my personal faith and trust in God, show me first hand the reality, and power in what Yeshua's completed work for us was about. He gave us authority in him, in his blood, in his completed work on the cross for our sins, and the key to eternal life. I think it's not so much that we choose him, rather, that will he claim and choose to know us. I cannot pretend to know all the mysteries of God, but I do know what I've experienced and seen, and I cannot deny it. The demons HATE Yeshua, who most know as Jesus Christ (name changed as Romans mocked Christians on the way to the Lion's den, chanting YOUR GOD IS WEAK, YOUR GOD IS WEAK). I have witnessed this, it's on the Fallen Ones Spiritual Warfare Course and study. It's a very deep study, and very, very real.
I am no saint, and I make mistakes every day. I just know what I've seen, and what I currently understand, and that's all I can share with you.
I think every person should fullfill there creative purpose, and with astrology, it has given me insight into perhaps more specifically why I am here on one level, and the exposure and awareness of the mechanics of my personality, the universal mind, and the nature of my weaknesses, and strengths.
My case is perhaps a little different, because the pieces match so well. However, it still doesn't make it easy, or that I'm complete, or some kind of guru, or have some special ability. I think it just gives me a greater chance to maximize my time here, and to at least head more toward a certain intended direction, for a long ago planned purpose and reason that I cannot still pretend to *totally* understand, although I have some idea of it, perhaps.
Knowing and manifesting are two different things. It is one thing to know or understand, and another to make it manifest, or to apply that, and use the awareness for a benefit and higher purpose.
I don't know if any of that makes any sense, but that's what came out :)
King Solomon surmised to enjoy your work, enjoy your play, and FEAR AND LOVE GOD. I think this is how the simple view is, adn to fullfill our creative purpose while we are here, as we are made in the image of the creator, and thus, creators ourselves, as children to have the chance to know him. For me that knowing came through Yeshua, and he being The Way, The Truth, and The Life, and that's the conviction and belief, and total knowing that I stand upon. When you see and witness real life demons and how much they totally hate HIM, and US, you'll never be the same, and it does raise more questions than answers, but there is no denying it once you witness it. When you see or hear an authentic thing, you cannot erase it from your mind, and this is simply not able to be reasoned away. Once you experience what I am talking about, it is a little frightening, and it is sobering to the mind and spirit. It is thus that the Fallen Ones course in Spiritual Warfare at www.truinsight.com is very the strong of heart, the children, regardless of who or what you are, or what you do or don't know, as it is truth, and it is witness, it is reality... many exoricisms, recorded, conversation with the demons in the human hosts,,, and again,,, it raises more questions than answers for most. In my case, I see it rather clearly. I've spent a lot of time in study, research and prayer about it, and I know who I am, and where I am going (hopefully) to some extent, and the Why of Why were are here. Most do not believe in hell, but witness the demons cry and scream out in total fear and agony when being commanded and sent their by the power and authority of Our Lord Jesus Christ, who I know as Yeshua. Yeshua comes to fullfill the law, and I believe we are here to know the Father as son's and daughter's through him. I also think I am here to give the glory, praise, witness, and credit for my even being here, and for all that's been revealed to me, to him, the Creator, Adonia, YHVH, God, The Universal Oneness.
Who can pretend to know the all the mysteries of God and creation? Imagine, I magi, visualization, belief, manifestation, creating, little creators we are, in him, reflective of him, in our MINDS, in our SPIRITS,,, even in procreation in the physical...the child, the extension and continuation of ourselves, of the spiritual evolution and progress,,, yet there is a 7th hour, and final judgement, and that which goes on forever, and ever. Amen. To him be the glory, the power, and the praise forever. The Alpha, and the Omega.
