Question: Can you help shed some light on why we are here in this life?
Answer: All of our deeper personal experiences eventually come to reveal some lesson that we needed to learn. This process of events that leads us to the discovery of their cause proves both the existence of order and purpose. The outcome of each experience turns out to be for personal growth. Therefore, it is safe to say we are here on earth, in these bodies, to grow in wisdom and the love that is an outgrowth of it.
In this short talk, Guy Finley talks about how the mind’s painful struggle to understand any given moment actually prevents the true understanding of the moment from reaching us.

To see … that we are held in life by what we hold onto as life is the birth of our real life in the light.
To do those works required of us, to act from what we know is right and true — even when we don’t want to — is the first step of giving birth to something in ourselves that gradually gives us, effortlessly, everything that we need to be right and true.
This life of ours is short… and if it seems long to you, it’s because you’ve not learned what your life is for, and not knowing this, you can’t know how to use it as God intended. Being but the brief candle that it is, resolve all over again to love the light that lit it. Nourish your wish to grow in it. Make your sole intention to invite this light to become your whole life . . . “and surely Goodness will follow you the rest of the days of your life, and forever more.”
I wish for all of you one thing — you wish it too — no matter what comes your way along this way, keep your eye on the mountaintop. Nothing has the power to keep you from falling forward. Make it your wish that every day you are increasingly able to see the truth of yourself and of this life. The light is never far away.
