    I don’t post threads, but I am curious as to others’ perspectives:

    Why are we still here?

    ALL IS. There is nothing outside of ALL, so speaking in the case of time is a moot point. However, for the sake of conceptualizing the idea, why are we “still” here? We are everywhere at once. We can interact with the “rest” of our Being through our higher senses that we are no longer proficient at, or feel comfortable, using. But throughout our numerous and multiple “lives” we are still viewing this (false) reality from this one perspective on this lowly plane. While the lowest of the astral planes are without doubt rough places to visit, ours is still lower than they. I mean we are in a state of “reality” where energy vibrates so slowly that it appears to be still solid matter.

    So the question is: out of the infinitesimal lifespan of ALL, Reality, Existence-why are we still currently existing (as per our perspective) on such a low plane?

    It would perhaps be beneficial to explore the possibility that we are trapped within this cell of a body that is trapped yet even further within this false reality in which we only seem to exist. We always tend to gravitate towards the presumption that once our Etheric cords are severed during passing (so-called “death”) we are automatically and naturally initiated into the higher planes and forms of existence. Now, again, we already exist simultaneously on all of these planes, but the perceived existence is a matter of perspective. I would like to consider that once we pass, our perspective changes. But then why do we return and still view life from this perspective on Earth?

    ---A) We are here to learn from a wrong(s) in our relative past so that we can vibrate at higher rates. We HAVE passed on and might very well jump directly back to those higher planes of existence once the experience is rectified. But then why have we been separated from the sole perspective of ALL in the first place?

    ---B) The natural outward stretched spiral of reality has been compressed and reduced to a circle. Our vibrations have similarly been reduced and we can’t seem to get back to The Most High for lack of enlightenment. So we repeat "time" until we can (or maybe we are traveling down the spiral toward its ever increasing wide end instead of involving toward the One point of creation).

    This is yet another reason why we should perhaps strongly consider that this is not reality. We keep coming back here bc we believe that it IS reality and preparation is not needed in order to advance beyond this plane. You need only accept Jesus as… and die. Then you go to heaven :coffee:

    I believe we know the essentials (as they are innate within us), but bc our oppressor does not, we are made to forget. I can imagine one from ancient Egipt arriving here and being in awe. “How do you exist without knowing a,b,c etc?” What kind of world would that look like? This crazy place is what it would look like if we didn’t recall and live by the essential knowledge of life/Reality. Like us asking another how they communicate without cell phones. Or defecate without toilet paper.
    Perhaps what we call living is not really life at all.

    Anyway, why are we still here?
    *Still- remaining in place or at rest; motionless; stationary*

    If we are part of the All and the All has no beginning nor an ending then we have always been and will continue to be. We are never "still". We change. Yet we stay we stay the same. All things work together. Our environment has shown us that all that exists goes through cycles. Like water we are in a constant state of change yet our essence remains the same. Like seeds who we are is already a part of us waiting to reach it's potential. Knowing that all things work together sometimes it is necessary to remain motionless as well as in motion.


    Peace......

    If we are in a constant state of change, and we have always been, then why have we not progressed past this relatively meager perspective of existence?
    Most basically put, why have we-as exemplified by our perspective-not changed any more than we have?

    Just because things are not happening based upon our timetable doesn't mean they are not happening. There are processes that need to be done and undone. There are obstacles and barriers that need to be overcome. During the growth process there are times when we seen to stand still or even times of regression instead of progress. In the end all that is destined to be shall be. nothing on no one can stop that.


    Peace.....
