Our life is dictated by what we have and where we need to be – we are perpetually chasing a dream that is potentially not even ours to begin with!
Our Soul’s purpose is to exhaust its karma from its previous birth and then, to find completion in this lifetime, that it is free from the cycle of samkara – of birth, death and rebirth.
Unless we lay full claim of relinquishing what we have endured from before, we will continue to replay the same patterns of toxicity until we completely learn the lessons therein.
In our exclusive curriculum called life, we are merely actors acting out the dramas of our lives, engineered by our own Soul. The agenda is a simple one… to fulfil previous dramas so that it makes space for new ones. How then will we know whether our Soul has completely exhausted its karma to be free from the cycle of samsara?
The Soul is deemed free from the cycle of birth, death and rebirth when all that remains is absolute-ness – the realm in which pure bliss exists with no needs, no desires and a withdrawal of the senses.
When you think you’ve had enough of the external world, of the wants and the desires, of the need to be something others require you to be, retreat into yourself – withdraw from your senses and listen to your breath!
Turn off the lights and shut off all forms of distractions and sounds, sit in the darkness and allow yourself to be… become the witness of your own Being!
