What is our Soul Purpose?
Moods change from day to day, hour to hour and moment to moment. Science tells us that diet, environment, chemicals, lifestyle, etc. affect our moods. This is called biochemistry. Acting from negative moods or vices rather than acting from virtues compromises the health of the body-mind. When the body-mind is compromised the door is open to disease.
There are many variations of our moods, but the most destructive is fear for it brings with it stress, worry, impatience, distrust and doubt.
These moods compromise the integrity of the body-mind and thus cut us off from our soul. However, awareness of the energy of the moods and implementing conscious change presents the opportunity to know the nature of our Tikkum (the kabalistic word for “corrections”) also known as our karma. Only through conscious awareness of how we separate ourselves can we set about to make changes towards integrating the whole. When we begin to replace the vices with the virtues we begin to change our karma. Through the content of our lives, we have the opportunity to discover both the corrections and the qualities that ultimately allow the individual to experience heaven on earth; better known as happiness.
Developing virtues is the soul purpose of our existence here on earth. Therefore practice compassion, patience, courage, integrity, honor, strength, steadfastness, love, discipline, peace, creativity and devotion, and in this you will discover wisdom.
