The Universe is based on energy. That energy aligns and clusters and disperses. Similar to a swarm of bees.
We align and cluster ourselves. Pick a favorite sports team, we align, unite, form a bond, have an agreed upon adversary. Pick a Country. State. City. Political Party.
We cluster and form an energy unit. Aligned on beliefs and values.
Yet some of our cluster mates, may actually be antagonist in another cluster. We may align with USA, but we like the Yankees and you like the Mets. Another cluster may like the Mets, yet they are Republicans and Pro-Choice while you are Democrat and Pro-Union.
We partake in different overlapping clusters and form alliances accordingly so long as the group does not further cluster within the outer cluster.
Try for a minute, to remove all your Clusters. No favorite team, political party, country, religion. What have you.
That's your true self, without the layer upon layer of aligned clusters. Now that you've found the core, you have past memories and experiences that make you unique.
Now remove those. At this point, how much different are you than anybody else?
Do you have a unique signature that defines you specifically, a Universal Global Unique Identifier or U-GUID? If so, does that stay with you after you depart this planet? Has your U-GUID been to other realities in other parts of the Universe? Has it been to this planet prior and will it return, where does it go when it leaves? Are there different levels of U-GUID's as far as Spiritual Growth.
Is the U-GUID your "soul"? An energy field that never dies? Simply transforms dimensions and realities and learns with each new life. If so, how important is that new big screen plasma television or Ferrari, material pleasures or distractions from our true calling?
That's the question on the table. Were we placed here on Earth at this point and time to further our evolutionary growth of Spirit, to experience physical reality in order to learn and grow?
And so it goes~!
