I have been looking at my life purpose for some time now and what I wanted to do with the rest of my life. So it’s not surprising that Spirit opened my eyes to my life purpose through a dream I had this morning so I could ‘see’ clearly. When we commune with Spirit, we realize that there is a greater Life happening in the midst of our own. Spirit uses multiple ways to guide us including dreams and books falling off shelves and people that come along. It’s not something mysterious. In this place of oneness with Spirit, we are all free to be exactly who we are consciously. We are spiritual beings have an amazing physical experience. Life sometimes makes us forget that until we get reminded again and Spirit is constantly reminding us.
So this morning, Saturday, April 2, 2016 I had a dream. I was in a businessman’s office when his wife called on the phone to tell him something. He immediately said something back to her and then hung up on her. I could see he was angry, upset and a number of other emotions flashed across his face as he tried to center himself again, pushing down the grievance he felt and not dealing with it until it would pop up again in the future.
I can see that this is something we all do numerous times a day. In the dream I began to coach him on being aware of what just happened, of how he was feeling about it, the grievance he was feeling. A Course in Miracles says “Love holds no grievances” and “My grievances hide the Light of the world in me.” It came to me part of my purpose is to use the principles of A Course In Miracles to help release the grievances we have been pushing down, to ‘see’ and be aware of the suffering we experience when we hold on to grievances.
We can find the common denominator in all of it: everyone we meet is either giving love or asking for love. Recognizing a call for love in the midst of someone acting out takes real awareness on our part, real attunement to Spirit. We are being given the opportunity to pause instead of creating a grievance and choose another way – to see their call for love and answer it with love instead of anger. In my dream I shared with him that this was the kind of coaching I did that would change his whole life in every way, physically, emotionally mentally and spiritually. It would help stop the suffering that was going on inside of him. Another man came in drawn by the energy of what was going on in the room. Curious and wanting to be part of it, he sat on the couch in the office and looked at us and at that point I woke up.
I realized I had just received more clarity from Spirit about my life purpose: to continue my spiritual and emotional growth as a spiritual mentor by offering emotional and spiritual strength to others, reminding us of our spiritual roots, of Who we really are, while we simultaneously stay attuned to Spirit. The second principle in my interfaith seminary program is “We affirm our belief that seeking attunement to Spirit is the highest goal of conscious living.” Attunement to Spirit brings everything out into the light so grievances we hold can be healed as we remember the Truth of our Being, that we are all One. There is no ‘other’ because there is only Spirit/Source/Creator/Universe shining through the eyes of everyone we see. Even if it has been forgotten for a while, we get to choose to ‘see’ it every day no matter what is showing up.
