Why Are You Here? Part III

One way to evaluate our lives is to look at the time each day we spend in the ego space as opposed to the God space. The progress of your development (or regression) determines the quality of your life because that tells us how many problems you will have.

Higher Consciousness

When you read a novel, you don’t want to know the plot before you finish it. That works for novels, but it’s not a very good formula for life. But that’s what a lot of us end up doing. We go from problem to problem, without any real grasp of the bigger picture. If you want to make your life better and easier, it helps to understand what’s really going on, and few people do.
