I recently went to see the newest Hobbit movie in 3D at the IMAX theatre. This experience was more like being inside the movie rather than watching a movie. During the show I had the most amazing revelation. It was something I had considered intellectually for decades, but this time it became a visceral reality. I finally understood the true purpose of my life. I was raised to save the world!
Sure, at eleven years old I was going door to door to raise money for the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) in their campaign to stop the burnings and hangings of African Americans. Yes, in the 60s it was still done for fun here, in public, and attended by children too. But the idea of not saving the world has never quite become a reality for me – it was still just an attachment.

I don’t know why the experience at the IMAX was the last straw that broke the camel’s back and shifted my perspective, but it was. The movie showed war, loyalties, betrayal, despicable characters, liars, heroes, journeys, retreats. And then it finally hit me – this is Earth! Our planet is the playground for Spirit to learn things through experiences that simply cannot be accessed in other dimensions or domains.
We are here to expand as a Spirit, as an energy force. That means that by the time we leave Earth, we will have experienced everything and been everything through several lifetimes: victim, perpetrator, lonely, popular, male, female, successful, loser, violent, peaceful, leader, follower, stalwart, traitor. I remember many of these past lives myself – each one contributing to deep understandings of all the players in every situation and event.
Changing the world? Sometimes we are down here to do just that. And sometimes we are here to be fabulously rich, beautiful or famous and simply enjoy all that the physical world has to offer. We cannot judge a person’s life. It is only one of many and the person is learning something, and that something is often times none of our business.
We also do not have to be a victim. If I meet a tiger, I understand it is a tiger and I do not treat it like a poodle. That would be foolish. There are laws of the physical world in effect here. And, yes, some of us are here to bend those laws and reveal the laws of Spirit and Quantum Mysticism to other people. But unless you are one of those, do not treat a tiger like a poodle, unless you like your lessons to come in hard and fast.
There is no chance, no destiny, no fate that can circumvent or hinder or control the firm resolve of a determined soul ~ Ella Wheeler Wilcox
We participate in this movie we call life to evolve; not to “get” somewhere, but to fully experience, learn and grow. In The Matrix Reloaded the Oracle reminds Neo: “We are not here to make choices, we are here to understand why we made the choices.” We chose our life, completely and fully, with the help of Guides, Guardians, Angels, and Elder Council members, before we incarnate. Now our task is to understand and accept what we came here to learn, so the learning can change our Soul Spirit.
Acceptance does not mean give up. Acceptance means to realize what is so, rather than wishing it were different, and go after what you signed up to do. That is a full-time journey.
Often we forget our Higher Purpose, or it gets corrupted by the influences that can occur once in body: ego, desires, fear of pain, greed, cultural and family pressures. Trust that if you are meant to help someone, save the planet or the whales, pick up a gun to defend the undefended, and so forth, you will be put on that path.
Many people choose a path of “helper” or being on a “mission” as a way to feel good about themselves, and avoid confronting their own challenging journey. Make sure you are truly on your journey, and not using other issues or other people to dodge your own work. If you are uncertain about your life path, get a Life Path Reading, or do a Life Between Lives session. Find out what your Higher Soul Self set out to do in this life.
