Your physical presence as a human being, inhabiting this planet, allows you to have a certain unique way of experiencing life. Your body is the vehicle through which you experience and interpret life. As the universal consciousness, you are also experiencing life through many other forms like vegetation, animals, birds, insects and other living organisms.
Each form allows for a different experience of life because of the way it perceives and interprets life, for example a dog has completely different perspective on reality than a human, simply because the sensors that a dog possesses is quite different from the sensors humans have (dogs can smell thousand times better than a human, and hear sounds that humans can’t), and the brain capacity (intelligence) of a dog is totally different from the brain capacity of a human. Every form of physicality allows for different perspectives, interpretations and thus different experiences, which is the very purpose why consciousness takes these forms – to experience itself in a unique way, and to know itself through it.
Consciousness as a pure energy is non-physical and the only way it can ever see itself is indirectly, through a physical manifestation. The physical manifestation is the mirror through which the non-physical consciousness can get to know itself. The physical manifestation is not a purposeless play of life, it has a unique purpose in that it allow the non-physical to experience itself, know itself and appreciate itself. You are the non-physical consciousness experiencing life through the vehicle of this body, and unless you know this true “identity” of yours, you will not be able to fully appreciate the gift of physicality.
Every experience is welcome from the absolute perspective
From the absolute perspective all experiences have a unique value because every experience is a like a flavor and adds to the taste of life, and since the very purpose of the non-physical, in taking a physical form, was to taste different experiences it does not see one experience as being better or more profound than another experience. The human brain labels experiences, calling it good or bad, it labels circumstances calling it positive or negative, but in the end all of this allows for a unique experience of life. You cannot enjoy the positive without having a taste of the negative, it’s can been seen logically that you cannot appreciate joy unless you’ve had a taste of what suffering is, and you cannot appreciate abundance until you’ve had a taste of lack.
When paradise is all you live in, how will you know what paradise is? It’s only when you step out of paradise for a while, and come back again, that you know what paradise really is. Unless you see some contrast you cannot appreciate your original, natural vibration. The only way the non-physical can know its natural vibration to be love, joy and peace is when it gets a taste of the lower vibrations of fear, hatred and restlessness. The “mind” is the tool through which consciousness can get a taste of the lower vibrations. So when people ask, “if God is so loving why should there be suffering at all?”, they are looking at God as being some entity separate from them and hence they don’t get the perspective of the value each experience has in appreciating the true nature of who we are. Only when you get it that God is who you are all along, that what you look at as God is eventually just the one being that everything is, you finally understand the reason for physicality and value of having the experiences you are having.
Physicality is the best it gets for life
A lot of people believe that being born as a physical form is the lowest experience, and that after dying they will have a better/divine experience of life. Nothing can be far from truth, as far as life is concerned, physicality is the best it gets – physical forms are the leading edge of experience, and it’s the physical existence that gives all the value and juice for life. When you die and become non-physical again, you will be aligned with your natural vibration of joy and hence there is will be no “experience” because experiences are created through contrast. To be permanently aligned with joy is akin to being “dead” because there is no experience, and hence the non-physical keeps taking new forms to “experience” life through physicality.
Even as a human we would rather have contrasts than have the same feeling all the time, anyone who claims that they would rather just be blissed out all the time have no idea what they are asking for. Its like saying I want to eat only sweets for the rest of my life, you might enjoy it for a few days (may be a few hours) before you get sick of it and crave something salty, spicy or bitter. Whatever be the flavor of experience you are having right now, just allow yourself to fully live it out, instead of pushing away from it and waiting for something better to come by. Life will keep changing and something new will keep coming up, but the point is how fully are you living life, are you just constantly waiting for the next moment or are you really living out this moment fully.
Of course, you don’t have to be stuck in feelings that don’t feel good, or realities that don’t align with your desired life, but unless you stop hating your reality it’s not possible for you to be free of it. Your hate for your present reality is usually what keeps you stuck in it, because you are giving so much attention to it. Once you allow “what is” to be, and take it in as a flavor of life, you will see how easily life keeps changing into the new. Every experience can be had peacefully from the depth of your being, and you don’t have the judge or hate on it. When this is your state of being, life keeps moving swiftly and you will have a dynamic and adventurous experience of life.
