Search for enlightenment

QUESTION: Masters, I feel very lost in life and have no idea of my life purpose. I feel very strongly that there is so much more to our universe and believe there is a higher power. I have no past experiences and limited knowledge on this topic and was hoping you could lead me in the right direction to start my spiritual journey. I hope to achieve clarity, fulfillment, higher consciousness, inner peace, love and a greater understanding of our universe and higher power. I want to find my purpose here on earth. ~David, Australia

ANSWER:  Your purpose here on Earth is to find all about your inner essence – that part of you which is eternal and originated from the Source of all existence. Your journey began in earnest when you acknowledged that the physical world was but a small part of the domain in which you may interact.

There is no one path. Let your intuition and feelings draw you to the things you need to experience. There are thousands of people who have recorded how they have achieved a sense of knowledge, understanding, and enlightenment – as we call the intellectual connection between the physical body and the spiritual, energetic, nonphysical self.

Learning to quiet the constantly moving thinking brain, so that you may hear the nonphysical energies that are around to assist you on this journey, is the first vital step. This quieting of the physical affords you clarity in understanding your present situation, and provides a gateway to love, inner peace, and your higher consciousness.

As you begin this trek, evaluate all the contacts you have with people and events. Don’t let anyone tell you what to believe or feel. Accept, and make a part of your daily life, only what feels to be in resonance with your energy. Society has been trying to tell you what to do your whole life. It is time to use your freedom of choice to determine your own destination. Take responsibility for your life.

You are a magnificent soul, just like all others with you. They are no better than you, so you have as much latent knowledge as anyone to take you where you want to go. This is all driven by your intuition – go where you feel you want to.
