The approximate “age” of a soul is oftentimes indicated by the very nature of the questions asked in the life. For example, when one asks of themselves “What is the purpose of my life, and why am I here? “ Well, rest assured we are considering an older soul here, rather than a younger one. The purpose of this article is to challenge its readers to expand their physical and non-physical minds beyond currently held ideas.
Souls who are much “younger in age” will have no need to be concerned with the nature of this article’s subject matter. For these souls, “other concerns” are of primary importance. However, for an “older soul,” the nature of this article’s subject matter is indeed of “prime importance” in the life.
Know that it is never “too late” to bring about desired changes into the life; even up to the moment of the last physical breath taken, the human soul can change. The life being lived currently is no accident. It is that which the individual them self has created, even if they are simply not aware of it. In fact, the very conditions of one’s present life are actually “where the magic is,” in terms of the resources available to transform the life more “in-line” with one’s true purpose in life.
All that has come before in the life is “necessary” in developing the individual to a point where they may begin to ask questions of themselves similar to that of this article. There is no definite pattern here, for every life is quite individual and unique; one has only to look around to observe the truth of this. Still, there are indeed “similarities” or “commonalities” which we all share as the spiritual human beings that we are, and it is upon this level here that this article will focus upon.
The “older soul” does not come here to have a life of no difficulty, challenge, or obstacles to overcome. Quite the contrary, the “older soul” comes here to grow beyond all these concerns by transcending the self-imposed limitations accepted out of ignorance and lack of understanding. When done successfully, the life is lived in such a way as to not only benefit the individual, but also the lives of all those others who surround them as well.
While human beings are raised in a certain manner most definitely, they use the resulting “programming” to grow and develop as far as possible, but only to a “certain point.” It is from this point in the life that there is something within the nature of the person, which will begin to ask the question “What is the purpose of my life; why am I here?”
Of course, each individual will experience this in his or her own way. For some, it will be more of a “feeling” than a “thinking” thing. Realize that this is a direct communication from the eternal part of one’s own very “essence” trying to “remind them of why they came here to be born.” The ways and means in which one may manifest the “working out” of this matter is possible in as many ways as there are human beings present upon our planet.
By striving for a life of excellence through the art of becoming, the very life itself is transformed in-line with the nature of the life’s purpose. This very definitely means, “growing up, confronting, and transcending one’s fears” to take them beyond the “programming” of the earlier part of the life; there is simply no other way. To experience a life of self-realized greatness, the individual human soul has to create this process by their self-directed efforts. This is the art of self-actualization.
The greatest guidance and support needed and desired will come from within the individual, if they will trust in their creativity to show them the way to a life of greatness. It is in knowing that the individual becomes greater with age, which enables this to occur. The best part of one’s life is still yet to come; only “old programming issues” will tell one this is a lie.
As one begins to question the ideas, they hold within them, they are serving notice to a deeper part of themselves that they are ready to begin or continue on this path. It is almost beyond verbalization to try to explain the joys and rewards of this process, however, know that they will indeed manifest in the life.
As others observe from the “outside looking in,” they will regard them as simply being “lucky” to have the life they are experiencing; but the older soul knows different. For they are aware that living a life of greatness is accomplished through the art of one’s personal excellence; because they chose to face their fears and overcome old programming issues which would try to hold them back from becoming all that they came to be.
The successful living of one’s life is the greatest lesson, which can be taught to others, both the positive and negative ones. By being the best at what one can become, they automatically help others. Being true to them self, they are actually able to support and encourage others in their lives, for they are not threatened or jealous of anyone’s accomplishments.
The sheer and absolute power of love, and its triumph over fear, is why the older soul comes to be here. The joys and rewards this will bring into the life are beyond measure. For In the end, the responsibility and accountability for the life belongs to the individual living that life, as they are the one who must walk their path when they die.
Once again, what is the purpose of your life, and why are you here? If you can find a way to transcend your fears, you will find that life has something quite wonderful to teach you…
