November/December 2010 This I Believe
Two Most Important Questions
by Nick Bunick
The two most important questions in the world have been asked by people from all walks of life:
- What is the purpose of my life?
- What is my relationship with God?
The answers to these questions are interconnected because you can’t have one without the other.
Many people have been taught that you can’t have God without the church being the conduit to God. And without the church, you can’t have salvation and redemption from God.
But the spirit of God is inside of you. You are a part of God and God is a part of you. Your purpose in life is to become at one with God.
Visualize inside of you a pyramid with 1,000 steps. And at the top of the pyramid is God and the Christ consciousness. And your goal in life is to climb those stairs, one at a time, until you reach the top, and become at one with God and the Christ consciousness. Each person is at a different step, and the higher you climb to the top, the more spiritually evolved you become.
But you may only be able to climb a few steps each lifetime. After the transition of your soul in any lifetime, you return in your next lifetime to continue from the step you left off in your journey to become at one with God.
How do you evolve to a higher level? Live your life consistent with God’s will, embrace universal love and compassion, and live in truth. God will wait for you until you reach the top.
