You are here at this time in this place to carry out a mission – one that you knew about and agreed to do before you even incarnated into this lifetime. The contract you have with your Higher Self, God, I Am presence, the Source (whatever name you prefer) is that you are doing something with your life.
It’s a precious thing to have a life and a body to use on the playground called “life on Planet Earth.” So, in order to get to play here, you have agreed to do something that makes a difference in some way to your own soul’s journey and maybe also to the journey of others’ souls.
This isn’t a random thing. Nothing in the universe is random. It is all interconnected in some way, shape or form. And the mission need not be so lofty as to be in service to others because if you want to make a difference in this place and at this time, you must simply focus on raising your own vibrational level. You can’t bring others up unless you first bring yourself up. So bringing yourself up while bringing others up is the noblest of all ways you can make a difference.
For example, if you are a painter whose paintings are tucked away in an attic or back room somewhere, that‘s okay. As long as you’re painting for the pure joy of painting, you don’t have to show your paintings to people in order to still be serving humankind by using your gift of painting. That’s because when you are in joy, you are resonating at a higher vibrational frequency. Your thoughts are raised up. Just simply bringing this extra high vibration into the planet spreads out in waves, and, through an unseen touch, it affects others’ vibrational frequency. You raise yourself and you raise others.
Exploring your potential, expanding your awareness and using, rather than neglecting, your talents is your life's purpose. This is what you are here to do. So, you can choose to have the direct influence of helping to raise others’ vibrations by the actual work you do with them and or for them. Or you can do it indirectly by just being in joy.
Every second that you spend in a joyful place, bringing joyful energy into the human experience, is one more second that helps to raise the human consciousness in general. Wallace D. Wattles said it well: "The very best thing you can do for the whole world is to make the most of yourself."
