Through the gift of freewill this allows ourselves to use discernment to our advantage. If someone told you to drive across a burning bridge would you do it anyways? I hope not. That is why we are given the choice to blindly follow if that is what you so choose. But it also gives you the choice to say no.
Think about it this way. If before you stand two doors which one will you pick? Will you pick the one glowing in a brilliant light or the ordinary looking door. What made you decide to pick either door, does one stand out more? Why would one pick one door over the other, what is behind each one? Maybe one stands out more because whatever is behind it wants you to pick it based on a malevolent ideology. Have you even thought maybe the one that isn't standing out wants you to use your discernment to earn what's behind it? Everything isn't so simple as it sounds, you have to earn your way into heaven. No one said it was going to be easy.

To me - in the simplest term: Home is the place you knowingly create to live. When you've reached the spiritual/energy evolution that you can choose what truly makes you happy.
Let's face it - - not every soul is gonna want to live in a quiet peaceful setting with family. Some are gonna want to do Extreme Sports.
Maybe Home for you is to come back to Earth - - a lower density - - and help more souls evolve.
What if once one creates this...they are still not content....finding that something is missing.
What purpose would there be....in a many being infinite? Will not all of those 'many' one day see that they are all but acorns of a larger something, the oak tree...and then will that oak tree not see that it is part of a larger something, the Sun/Earth/Wind/Water....and then will each of those not realize that they are all a part of the same energy that emanated into them all?
Will this knowing create its own blossom from the bud, from the seed....of 'awaking' to what it truly is?

But what if...you only see the ways you see...because you see only for the desires you have...as a self, and are not ready to let go of the "I" in you?
What if all that you 'download' is limited, do to the fact that you are not ready to see the wholeness for what it is?
What if in seeking desires for yourself....you are missing a mark in what you truly are? Which is not a self at all, as in separate from others.
You will only resonate with what others say...that are also seeking the path of 'self'.

I appreciate your concern, but trying to separate me from my own inner truth and knowlege will never work, and that is one thing that another should never put down in someone. Their knowing, their memories, feelings and the daily miracles they've recieved and what draws them on their journey. For its very wrong to do that. Without our inner knowing we would be trapped for ages until someone extends a helping hand to rescue us, which our Family does by the way.
Though this isn't a worry in my case, for I have much faith and the only times I've been harmed or taken hits is when I went against my own knowing and let myself down.
edit on 23-10-2010 by Unity_99 because: (no reason given)
--There are always consequences to actions, the best thing a person can do is look forward and
try to improve themselves making their weaknesses become strengths - forgiving themselves and
everyone and especially forgetting about the past. Make amends with everyone around you and find
peace in your soul TODAY in the here and now (PRESENT.)
--Stay in the day prepared to face/meet all things on a spiritual level. Make amends with those around
you on a daily basis and maintain your 'soul' inside as you maintain your physical body outside in
cleanliness/showering on a daily basis. Clean out the inside spiritually and let go of any
anger/hate/prejudices/grudges of any kind that you may have. Learn more patience, endurance,
forgiveness and integrity. Charity is necessary, find desire in yourself to help others in need or the less
fortunate not those who have less materialistically necessarily but those struggling spiritually. (Both are
desires one can strive to achieve but it's never a requirement but don't you truly want to help someone
out in need? Work on being a better person all around and there's always a positive outcome but why do
it for yourself and not for others. The bonus and happiness comes in bringing a smile and happiness to
another persons face. It must be sincere and your true desire/intent is what love genuinely is all about.
Graduation is around the corner for those who GROW UP and figure this out! ....
--Don't allow people around you to get
the best of you and upset you. Turn the other cheek should be taken in the right context/way. It doesn't
mean offer a person another cheek to take advantage of you or smite you but it means 'walk away' and
'let it go' and avoid such confrontations. The wise and merciful person is willing to take a punch
allowing the other person the victory and win. Walk away and do not allow those punches to get the
best of you and turn you into something that you should never become. That is part of your test.
ANGER and HATE takes over when someone is harmed/taken advantage of and the natural feelings
are to seek revenge and that turns a person into something they should avoid to become at all cost. Do
not fall for the earthly traps, you need to overcome them if you plan on moving upwards off this planet
and permanently graduating. ...
Do not let anyone get
the best of you. Don't allow a person to affect you even if you KNOW you are right. Give the other
person what they want and apologize anyway trying to rectify the situation at all cost (FOR the sake of
the other person) become the ADULT amongst the many who are still (unknowingly) children and don't
even realize it. Age on this planet means nothing, sometimes the elderly are younger than the children.
Be the Light Of the World and let your LOVE and LIGHT shine amongst everyone, that includes the
good and the evil. Unconditional love has no limitations and was meant for all. ...
--It's always the INTENT of a person that counts. It's the thoughts/actions/reactions and how a person handles their life situations they are faced with that is the main key factor of moving upwards and progressing out of this difficult mortal/duality existence.
There are many TRAPS set in place that must be avoided and overcome but if one can stick to the basics and focus on that which is truly important being eternal and of spirit they can avoid the materialistic traps of this world setup/designed to hold back students from moving onwards/upwards/forward.
