We are not meant to leave this world, we are meant to change it. We are meant to change the universe. This is greater than ourselves, yet it requires awareness of the self. We need to know and understand the extraordinary and unique role the self plays as part of the collective consciousness. We are meant to change this world and by doing so, change it’s role in the universe. We were a gift, given to the self. Reciprocity is demonstrated in gratitude for the gift.
