yours. And your life experience will reflect choice you make. This much is certain. The planet, and people on it, are evolving because call for Love has been heard by enough awakened souls. The vibration of Love is highest vibration in existence. For every willing soul ready to walk in peace on planet, heaven adds a million rays of light. All solid matter is shifting to make more room for light. Here are some things you might try to balance your energy now: SELF REIKI Dedicate a half an hour each day to Self Reiki. Self Reiki at bedtime is very helpful. This helps to reset from day, and send you off to restful sleep which is critical if you are experiencing highs and lows, or a constant flow of either. We all know powerful healing force in deep sleep. A regular good night's sleep will go a long way in easing transition. JOURNAL Dedicate to journal in mornings. This helps you to slow down, breathe, focus for day, and coolly energizes ideas that flow in. PRAY/MEDITATE Spend time in prayer and/or meditation every day. You have many Angels with you, guiding you, and reminding you to balance. We don't always listen, but they are there to help. BREATHE Breathe, breathe, breathe. Stop several times during day to get oxygen to your brain and heart. It is amazing how much more effective energy you will have. Use this time to again center yourself and invite Source to lead. Fresh air and sunshine is also an important element in these times. OBSERVE YOURSELF Remove yourself from any anxiety, and consciously choose to observe yourself from a higher perspective. Always ask yourself, "What am I afraid will happen?" Then, with grace, forgive yourself for any and all mistakes you believe you have made. When your emotional body is in turmoil, it usually means you have made decision to see world, and someone in it, as your enemy. Living on this level of perception will not bring you peace. There is higher ground. Never lose sight of truth of your brother, so you will not lose sight of yourself. BE THE PEACE YOU SEEK (self explanatory) If you use these methods to help yourself balance, and call upon Source to assist you, you will experience peace and calm, without losing creative energy that is flooding in right now for us all to tap. We are on brink of a most magnificent heart opening. There are millions of people who have already entered this opening. You know who they are, because you once experienced a love so deep. The memories, while hidden, are part of us. When you interact with ones who know truth; that Hell is our own daily creation, that a perfect God loves us all no matter what we have ever said, or done, and loves all living things equally, you will remember that ancient moment when you were created from unconditional love and perfection. This will change your life, and it will be impossible to look back. Not a matter of IF this will happen, but when. Mother Earth is changing, with or without you. Now would be time to take wings and fly my friend. May our journey home together be loving.

On the Purpose and Meaning of LifeWritten by Peter M.K. Chan
Continued from page 1
As a matter of fact, it is not to late to remind everyone of views of Solomon - one of kings of ancient Israel. He was one of first to have put his views about purpose and meaning of human existence on public record. His dissertation on subject, if you do not know, is titled Ecclesiastics (one of wisdom books in Old Testament). What was his answer? Well, let me paraphrase it for you. He said that life is actually for nothing at all. And let me assure you that he was not singing sour grapes either. He had a high intellect, political power, financial wherewithal (he taxed his people rather hard for his new Temple of God), not to say ladies and servants in waiting. It is not until one gets to one of his closing remarks that one realizes why he was so nihilistic. He said that after human body returns to dust, its spirit therein will have to be returned to God. From a statement such as this, it seems rather clear to me that he did not really believe that persons would persist as souls with memories and self-identity intact in hereafter. That may also explain why he had to whine and grind so much about futility of being human.
Be that as it may, I, for one, would think that baby should not be thrown out with bathwater. In eyes of any helpless parent, being able to hold onto some of remaining bits and pieces may still be better than none. In this connection, I think that some of ‘existentialist’ insights of Friedrich Nietzsche and Jean-Paul Sartre, not to mention those of Kierkegaard and Marin Heidegger, are indeed more appropriate. In very commonsensical and simplistic terms, what they said was that life is not a Chinese dinner party where everyone must wait to be served (i.e., with meaning and purpose). It is more like an outdoor BBQ where one must choose and make one’s own. The purpose and meaning of life is something that everyone must try and cook for himself, in terms of what he wants and decides to do, as well as what one actually managed to get done. To just respond obediently to dictates of another (either human or divine), or surrender completely to programming of popular culture (religious or secular), is not a meaningful way to live.
To this, I should also like to add three further notes of my own. One is that as every life is bound to undergo various stages for reason of physiological changes and unforeseen circumstances, meanings and purposes of a life are in fact many - not just any ‘this and only’ as it is usually mistakenly taken to imply. Another is that worth of any life (or success, if one must use word) is not confined to any one top or bottom that one may have managed to conquer or endure. It must also be defined in terms of total distance and nature of terrains covered. Even if one had to limp through in end, I would rather think, is still more worthy of respect than quitting midway. Last but not least, it is perhaps more appropriate to think about purposes and meanings in life, or its worth if you like, rather than of it. There is no justification for anyone to write off former simply for lack of latter – that is, if one would not want to be so honest and uncouth as to say that from biological point of view, meaning and purpose of life is perhaps to eat first and be eaten later.
