With each person who passes through your life, you have a soul agreement.
What this means is that, long ago in the realm of the soul, you promised to
have some special encounter, share some life-shaping experience, complete
some soul-honing work with that particular soul in this life. Soul agreements
are commitments to the evolution of our individual souls in conjunction with
one another, as one by one we make the journey to that state of seamless
awareness that the mystics call Enlightenment.
It is because of these agreements on a soul level that at times you may feel
a mysterious strange connection with some other person, why difficult people may
at times inexplicably inhabit your life, why you may find yourself on a journey
with a particular person- as if you had an unwritten contract to fulfil-And then
discover that, as if by amputation, your association is suddenly over.
As the community of souls who have gathered together in life on Earth, we
have agreed not only to remember for each other the pure state that was our
origin, but also to act out whatever portion of the needlessly changing tableau
of human experience We have been called upon to play to ensure our own
souls growth, And that of the souls to whom we have made these deep promises.
Some of us are here to be beautiful and strong, others to be cranky and
difficult, some to die young and teach us through the searing heartbreak of
great loss, others to live long and instruct us through wisdom.
But no matter what role we are playing, we are all enacting a part in that one
great spiritual destiny, which is to remember our eternal essence and move
toward ultimate union. So it is that every person you meet, each soul who
crosses your path and affects you- wonderfully and terribly, briefly or for a
lifetime- is here for that reason, and every relationship you engage in is but a
small scene in the vast, ever-unfolding human panoply that is being endlessly
enacted for the purpose of your souls development
When you recognise this, you will suddenly, breathtakingly see that each
person has been brought to you with a high and elegant purpose, that each soul
has come to touch your soul and teach it, and that each relationship exists to
hasten your own souls beautiful awakening.
No longer is anyone a stranger, no longer can any of your relationships be
seen as failures to mistakes. In the light of the Spirit, we see that we are all
playing out roles that are the fulfilment of an exquisite and all-encompassing plan.
To recognise this is to step out of conflict, and into Grace. For when we realize
that life has been so beautifully designed, we will bask in the light of the Spirit
we will live in absolute Peace.
