disappointed by your life, love them by allowing them to be that way. InLoving GratitudeShane Younker I believe that it is for the purpose of becoming an individualexpression of God. Not the same as God, but an expression. We are givenindividuality within the manifested, so there must be significance to it.Ravi MarajYes, its immediate purpose is to raise all creatures to a higher state of awareness. Quite correct Brother Shane.Shane Younker Nothing can be added or taken from Infinity, so it cannot befor adding unto God. To me there must be significance to the individualexpression. The maya is put before us so that we do not readily accept or perceive God for what He truly is. Also maya is a part of cause and effect.Otherwise our own free-will will be affected as to whether or not we willchose God. Through our own free will, we live our individual paths until weare ready to pursue and perceive God.Ravi MarajBrother, I want to quickly exit this discussion cuz I don't think everyone is ready to hear certain truths as yet on this topic.
