Why leave unconditional love?

QUESTION: Masters working as much as I can and trying to be good. Husband also but our luck just doesn’t seem to help our finances. What do we change about ourselves? So tired that life just seems like a pointless exercise. If we chose to take birth to understand and reach unconditional love, why would we when we were already in unconditional love. We have been humiliated in front of mean cruel family also for finances. What’s the learning? I’m just learning shutting down and accepting getting hit as trying and working hasn’t helped. ~L., India

ANSWER: Choosing to reincarnate is not done for the purpose of finding unconditional love as you have stated. It is done because the soul wishes to understand what powers and abilities it possesses as a piece of Source energy. This can only be accomplished by testing oneself through making decisions concerning negative and positive choices – in other words, by going through a series of life lessons.

As you have imagined, one of the lessons chosen by you and your husband deals with prosperity. You also must learn about self-worth and self-love, accepting who you are and why no one is any more important than you, and no one knows more about your journey than you.

You are being subjected to the judgment of your family and it can be handled in many different ways. They think they know what is best for you or what they think you should be doing in this life. Their opinions can affect you only if you allow them to do so. If you believe that only they know what is right for you, then your life will continue as it has. But if you examine your life and see that you are making the decisions you are because it is what feels right to you, you are working on your lessons and can complete them and move on to understanding.

You have no spiritual obligation to any other soul sharing this time frame with you. You owe your relatives nothing. Work on the fears and doubts that pop up in your world and you will find the place where you can increase your prosperity.

To most of society prosperity is determined by financial status only. It is much more than that. It is also a sense of things learned, accomplishments completed, and understanding directions presented. Be content with yourself and share this with your husband as you reach toward creating that which you desire. Push any negative thinking aside because that will only hold your progress back.
