Subject: “How Precious is your Life?”
Received by Chris.
Teacher Ophelius: “How precious is your life? Do you ever stop to think about the value and meaning of life on earth? Have you ever really stopped all the busy thoughts going through your mind — the distractions of your day, the hurt feelings of your past and the hardships of earning your keep and paying your bills? Let’s put all those thoughts aside for a moment and really sit with this idea of what life really means. Are you with me?
“You are alive — you have life — you have awareness — consciousness, and you are experiencing your life in this material world in time and in space. Your thoughts are your own, and you may choose what thoughts to have and you may direct what experiences in this world you may have as you go about your day. You record your experiences in memory — you learn from them, and you glean wisdom. There are other people in your world, in your life, who are also experiencing life in a similar way — having their own thoughts and their own experiences. They too are recording their experiences in memory and learning different values and seeing the world differently than do you. There are billions of you who live on this planet, all having these unique experiences — all recording them in memory — billions of experiential co-creators who are alive!
“The most important experiences in life are the experiences of relationships — your interaction with others’ consciousness. Why are these so important? It is through these relationships where you first experience love, where you learn truth, where you see beauty, and where you find goodness. These are eternal values and these experiences are committed to memory and saved in the soul-trust for use in the continuing journey as you leave this planet and awaken on the shores of a higher realm where you continue to experience your life — yes, your life continues, my friends, and you retain your identity and personality, for without this continuity of consciousness, the value of your life is diminished and the purpose for which you were created has come to naught. Life in eternity is for your choosing — when you understand your purpose, that choice is easy — ‘Yes, I want to live forever and continue to experience the wonders of all creation and share those experiences with my Creator Father.’
“Do you not see how important your life is to the Creator? You are a co-creative partner with God — you are the ‘experiencers’ who fulfill the Will of the Creator to have ‘all experience’ in all worlds, in all realms of the creation. God requires diversity and that is why you are all different and unique. Through the agency of the Indwelling Spirit, the Thought Adjuster, does the Creator look out through your eyes to see and experience the world around you. You are given the opportunity to direct your life using the gift of free will to assure that no two experiences are alike — like you, they are all unique, all loved, all cherished, all valued, and all have purpose. Think about what stupendous love the Creator has for you that He offers you the gift of eternal life, and all that is required of you is that you think about this and come to the conclusion that ‘I want to live forever and continue my life as a co-creative partner with God!’
“Now, having said that, I want you to start thinking about the quality of your life and experiences — life on earth is but a short stay. Live well, my friends, live well.
“Blessed are you all!
