What do I do?

QUESTION: Masters, my professional life is very important to me, but I have a boyfriend and he is going to move to another city. We don’t want to break up, but relationship in distance is very difficult to keep. So, he asks me if I want to go with him, to live together. I don’t know if going with him is right because if I go, it would be a big change in my life and plans for my life… But I love him so much, I don’t know what to do. But my heart says that follow him isn’t the better choice, that I have to follow my own plans… Please give me a way. My heart hurts when I think about it because if I don’t choose to follow him it will seem that I don’t want to be with him, and it isn’t true, I love him so much. ~Bianca, Brasil

ANSWER: A soul comes to Earth to learn lessons. They involve examining all the situations that you have chosen to attract to yourself and, then, using your freedom of choice, deciding which will allow you to learn the most in the shortest amount of time. A soul does not come into the plane with any other souls – but by itself. The spiritual journey is a singular thing, with the only way to learn being by making all the decisions and accepting all the responsibilities for what happens while here.

There are many aspects to a human life. There are things that can be experienced only within the human body – sexual functions being one of them. There is no time limit on any of the tests you have set up for yourself, nor only one way in which to accomplish them.

Somewhere in your planning for this life, you envisioned the exact situation in which you find yourself today. What is of greatest importance to you? Is it the completion of the passions you feel drawing you, the professional life you have spent so much time creating? Or is physical sensation of utmost importance at this very moment in your life? Only you can answer these questions.

It also matters whether you find spiritual growth and enlightenment necessary for you now, or feel that that can come later, if at all. You are not aware of what difficulties might face you in another location and whether you will find a position that satisfies you. Moving will satisfy your boyfriend’s needs in all respects but provide only for your relationship aspects. The choice is yours.
