In an odd way this is a big part of free will.

This is true.

I believe that while through possibly many incarnations I have grown in consciousness that I still had not given up the illusion that I held for my purpose for being here: the illusion that I am here to save other people, by changing other people ….naturally, “for their own good” — that somehow I could come up with just the right arguments, the right examples, the right data, the right words that would convince people who are suffering and experiencing all kinds of limitations that there problems will be solved if they just do what I say.

Now, I have surrendered this illusion and let it die. I feel I have fully accepted that my real reason for being here is not really to change anyone but myself — to completely and finally overcome and surrender my illusion that I am here to save other people. I have grown to believe that the way we are intended by our Creator to help other people on the spiritual path is to demonstrate (not preach) to others that there is another way, there are other options of how to react to people, situations, circumstances, etc. which produce better outcomes than what they may have been experiencing and by others witnessing this they at least have the knowledge that the way they have so far reacted is not the only way —they do have an option.

I agree with that.

I suggest you learn to look inside yourself, if you don't already do it. If you do it, then do it more. I believe that's the path: inwards.

Thumbs up

tom...what a great and honest post telling of your journey! Thank you.

...................
Does anyone rem reading about Lahiri Mahasaya in 'The Autobiography of a Yogi?'
Let me relate the story.... he is pulled to go up into the Himalayas...where he bumps into his old Master,
the famous Babaji himself...even in the same abode - a cave...and there sits Lahiri's old place -
bowl and animal skin to meditate on...from a past incarnation!
(Babaji really loves his devotee!)

Babaji proceeds to take him into a freezing rugged area of rocks!
Where instantly Babaji changes all the atoms and turns them into a palace-type of scene --
replete with gold, jewels twinkling, diamond chandeliers,marble floors, servants...he is wide -eyed!
Soon it disappears to the jagged rocks again.

Babaji explains that deep inside him from another life ...he still had this one earthly desire unfulfilled ---
and it was this - riches and resplendent surroundings.

Now that it has happened he could be free from the Wheel of Birth and Death.

Fun story - revealing story.

What I'm asking is:
What do you have a hard time with learning that would
be a reason for you to try again; to overcome or conquer?
And what are you doin' about that? (You really don't have to post it.)

I sure would have my list that I'm diligently using my time left for,
things like
- forgiveness
- realizing my power
- focusing on the positive, esp in people
- showing God's love to others, (when I really don't want to!!! ha!)
- realizing more and more what Reality is

I'm working on 'the me-soul' becoming the person I am destined to become ---a realized soul! HA! (Like all of us.)

It would be nice to advance and move on from 'here', for me.

I am coming back to learn how to live for a very, long time.

I am coming back as a mountain.

This may sound far-fetched...but according to Seth - there are these
very advanced souls, (like him, I guess) that are aware of multiple consciousnesses on other planes/dimensions, even...
When they want to take a 'break', they can
place themselves, say, in an old tree -Hey, I didn't make this up ---talk to Seth.

Reincarnation here— although my time seems already knowing of its end here—- may I travel to another location and be in a firmer desert island than this one atm.
