I am so thankful that my life did not work out the way I wanted it to, the way I had envisioned it, the way I had prayed for it, the way I had intended. Thank God that my life didn’t bend to meet me in my limited lens of perception.
Mark Twain said famously:
"The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why."
The day I figured out why I was born, interestingly enough, was New Year’s Eve 2002/2003. On that day, I had a direct experience with the Divine. I experienced God, The Divine, The Beloved, as an infinite ocean of love. No judgement, no criticism, no forgiveness - just love in its purest form. Since that day, I have been no longer able to deny why I am here. I was shown very clearly that we are all connected to this love, every single one of us.
