When I’m trying to figure out something about life, the Universe and everything, I often get flashes of information, hints at a bigger picture, which I write down on a sticky note for future reference.
For a while I’ve been wondering about the real purpose of our personalities, in the Universal scheme of things. First, why are our personalities seemingly “designed” to be so disconnected from our Divinity? And, second, why do we tend to believe that we are not worthy of that Divinity?
When I start to ponder like this, when I want to know more, it’s as if I send invisible thought bubbles right up through the ethers. This desire seems to spark a magnetic call and response between me and Above.
This is what I had been musing about:
Is Personality just an innocent bystander in creation?
This is what eventually flashed in:
Purposeful mechanism for growth.
Aha! My working hypothesis now is that Personality is key to our spiritual quest. As we choose to learn and grow, through the thick and thin of everyday living, WE initiate the process and discover our worth by degrees. Personality, I wager, is the mechanism of evolution. Its inner alchemy is what calls out to Soul and allows the Divine to unveil itself within us.
To my fellow hitchhikers…
Don’t panic when the ride gets bumpy. And remember to bring a clean towel!
