Why Are We Here?

Audio Version, click on the link above (speakers on!)

As a minister, I am often asked: “why am I here”?  “What’s my purpose?” This question suggests that we are all on “a mission from God” as Jake and Elwood Blues used to say.  Many people like to believe that each of us has a special role to play in this thing called life.

I believe that they are right but not necessarily in the way they may intend.  Yes, we have a vital purpose here on Earth as part of our never ending eternal journey of the soul.. a purpose no being can fulfill but us!

Jesus taught us that God is a spirit….do not look for Him here, there, or up there.  He is everywhere present all at the same time, in fact God is all that exists!  Once you accept that basic fact then our purpose becomes clearer.  Spirits may observe but not participate, rather like the characters in the great movie “City of Angels”.

Spirits cannot operate in a physical realm, they will never know the glory of an orgasm, the luscious sweet joy of the first bite of a peach, the feel of your little girl’s arms around your neck as she runs to greet you or the smile of your son when he catches the ball you tossed.

God loves us so much that he makes humanity out of the very substance of Itself. We really do live and move and have our being within the body of God.  We swim in God every moment of our lives as a fish swims in the sea.

Our mission on this Earth is to allow the Creator to experience the physical world of His/Her Creations.  We are physical expressions of God, the very creator of all that is.  You want purpose, that is a purpose beyond our imagination.

Remember, God is all there is so God never has a bad day!  It’s all good to the Life Force that creates all.   Our job is to be the best expression of God we can be, to  show the Creator a good time and at the same time live a useful, productive and joy filled life.  Whatever your heart and talent leads you to in life, do it to the best of your ability.  You really are on a mission from God and that mission is one of experiencing the very best life can offer.

I was born 3 days after the end of WW2. with Cerebral Palsy. I was scheduled for institutionalization but by the age of 3 the power of affirmative prayer, taught to my Mother by Dr. Ernest Holmes, the founder of Religious Science and the Science of Mind had healed me to the point that I was walking and even running. Today I am 95% normal (whatever that is!) and have led a rich and full life to this point. A native Angelino (Los Angeles) I grew up in the San Fernando Valley, attended Cal State Northridge and after graduate work taught in the LA schools for almost 20 years. After teaching I went into non-profit management, working with the Boy Scouts of America, The Hugh O'Brien Youth Foundation and the Science of Mind Foundation as a Development Officer. Today I teach Religious Science to people all over the world by the medium of the internet and YouTube. I am a licensed Religious Science Minister and have taught New Thought and metaphysics for over 26 years.
