Wanting a teacher to guide me

QUESTION: Masters I think I spiritually awakened about 2 years ago and then I’ve been wondering what on Earth is happening here. It is difficult to find my purpose here on Earth. I feel myself as outsider, like I don’t belong here. I have not had any physical guide on Earth (parents or friends or teachers) who would really care and tell how to do things. All have left too soon. I have been in many relationships and they all have been very difficult, why? I feel difficult to fit anywhere. How I will find my purpose here. I’m ready to do anything to find it out. ~Arttu, Finland

ANSWER: All souls are outsiders to the Earth. We are spiritual beings who have chosen to come to the planet to learn about ourselves in the duality of humanhood. Every soul’s purpose for coming is to see if they can understand who they are as a soul, not as a human, and to use their inherent essential powers and abilities to make “heaven on Earth.”

Each soul is on a solo journey, and the purpose of guides is advising only. No one, from the spiritual perspective, will ever tell you what to do. They are not around to show the way or to take your hand and lead you. Many “guides” have been in your path but were available only to give you possibilities and to show you things that had worked for them but might not be appropriate for you. They did not stick around too long because you have a tendency to become dependent easily.

Part of the human journey is to exercise your freedom of choice and to take responsibility for the resulting consequences. You found your relationships to be difficult because you did not share with your partners but wanted them to make all the decisions. And learning the lessons that you chose was not intended to be an easy task. It is only when faced with a negative incident that you have the ability to analyze it and decide to continue or turn it into a positive (i.e., learn your lesson).

Look inward for your direction, not outward for someone else to tell you what to do. You, as a soul, have all the answers inside if you take the time to dig them out. Stop feeling sorry for yourself and commit to doing the necessary work.
