Praying, meditation, spells, psychedelic drugs, etc are all ways to communicate with a greater truth. A myriad of different spiritual paths and a slew of clues left around the planet and universe to send us on the great treasure hunt.
We bounce from one discovery to another. We create one belief after the other. We continue to put all of the puzzle pieces together. Each piece leaving an imprint on our own soul's evolution. All of this giving the physical experience meaning and purpose. Igniting our wide range of emotions and desires.
All of this helps us define what we want, what we like and who we are. It all helps us steer through the contrasts and challenges designed to help us evolve.
Its kind of like the old ping ball machine from the old days. The ball bounces all over the place sometimes hitting the same places over and over until it gets where it is going. The score and bonuses all growing along the way.
Take a moment and think back over the stages you have gone through so far to discover the deeper meanings of life and how you want to live here. What faiths have you experienced? What humbling experiences have led you to where you are now? What have you discovered about yourself? How do you connect to the great universe?
