We Are But Vessels for Souls to Express Life

October 31, 2016

Imagine there are souls needing vessels to materialize here on earth.

Imagine with each conception a soul is attached to a new vessel. Imagine they couldn’t choose their vessel, but were simply assigned on a first available basis.

Such is the randomness of life from my perspective.

We do not choose the family into which we are born. Knowing though that we are all from the same pool of souls, with no discretion as to the vessel with which we emerge, we must acknowledge the fortune, good bad or otherwise that we find. We must also acknowledge that we are no different from anyone else, save for the vessel and the context into which the vessel emerges.

On that basis, we should be humbled and respect that if not for the randomness of timing, we could be in any vessel anywhere whatsoever. Do not gloat. Do not be jealous. Do not take advantage. Do not dismay. Your soul may one day find itself to yet another vessel when freed from the present.

To mitigate the randomness and hardship faced by many in their vessel, wouldn’t it make sense to make the world a better place for all? Thus, even if not for the sake of others, what if you returned to a vessel and fate less fortunate than your current experience? If not for the sake of others, then contemplate the value in bettering the world for your own fate in the event you should return in another vessel.

I find that it does feel better however, contributing to the betterment of humanity whether or not it serves me in the return of another vessel.

If you needed an excuse though to better the world, you can use that one. If not for others, then for yourself, should you return. Either way, make the world a better place.
