Why Men Don’t Listen and Women Can’t Read Maps is not only a famous book it’s also a great joke, yet when it comes to taking control of our lives and knowing where we want to go and what we want to do it isn’t only women who can’t read the map – most of us can’t even find it.
In popular spiritual thinking we all come here with a life’s purpose to fulfil and specific lessons we want to learn. That sounds very logical but where is the logic of forgetting that information part way down the birth canal? What is the point of having a specific purpose and not having the faintest clue what it is? Logically there is no point, which clearly undermines current spiritual thinking. Unless you wonder whether we’re taking everything too literally?
My answer to the questions “Who am I? Where am I? What is this place?” and “What on earth am I doing here?” is fairly straightforward. You are spirit. You live on a corporeal, material world but it is a spirit world. You’re here to do something, anything.
