As in my last question, I will start, bearing in mind that we are all unique and that there may be many different ways of looking at this. So let's take Balance, for example. Not eating too much or too little; sleeping too much or two little; working too much or two little. Caught you! I meant the inner Balance, Harmony, Equilibrium, Equipoise ... the same things in esoteric language we would call Light or Love or Peace. My Favourite is Love. Your turn.

My word too, Oztinato. Such an unutterable, yet utterable word. Unspoken yet spoken. An experience through Life and yes, for me life itself. My Favourite.
Yes, my Friend, Consciousness. Nice one. The Western equivalent is Spirit with a capital 'S.' As to increasing Consciousness, my spiritual mentor spoke of this constantly in His 1600 books. He calls it Self-Transcendence. Happy Easter!
Yes. So we three say the same thing. You, me, Oztinato. All great answers.Love is the foundation; Love is the root ...Gratitude. All other answers here are to me of an exceptionally high quality. Much Peace.
Another great answer. Actually Sri Chinmoy teaches that the Soul is not satisfied even after God-realisation. The Soul returns to manifest God in Creation and within this Manifestation, lies Satisfaction. Om Shanti!
Yes, LoliHey. I almost went for that one myself. I touch lightly on it when I use the word' Manifestation.' Actually, I've deliberately opened this up, and I'm still waiting for my favourite. You can have another go. They're all valid. Thank you.
I can have another go? Are you implying that my answer is wrong? I beg to differ.
No, no, Dear. I like it so much, that I almost went for it, instead of my own examples. But I also have another one in mind. It is fine if you feel this is the ultimate. I like conviction, Lolita. I like to open it up, though, to further thoughts.
Well, Eph 2:8-9 LIED! "For by grace r ye saved through (YOUR) faith; & that not of yourselves (Holy Spirit is activated when one has "faith") it is the GIFT (HS is gift & "HELPS") fm God. (v) NOT OF WORKS, lest any "man" (works) should BOAST
Yes, yes. such a beautiful take, Electro. Feels like Faith. Most certainly essential.
Miz, like Chitrangada, I like you too. A step higher than hers for me, but still feels like a business. You end well, as you seem to be talking about calling. Something quite different to me.Thank you for the input.
Yes, you've answered like a God-Lover, and this is not to dissimilar to LoliHey's. Attunement with Grace would impel you sweetly, to walk this Path of which you speak. It is so beautiful!! Praise, adoration ... glory in the imitation of Christ ...
Man: If I said "I believe GOD is Creator of ALL" what is the verb? BELIEVE! U see my "works?"
This "spiritual journey" is a mission in which 1 blv so much until action is manifested so world sees!
Unbelief (therefore no faith) produces NOTHING!
Agreed! We r on a "mission" which should be: "reconciliation" to the CREATOR!
Therefore, it's our duty to "Study" (II Tim 2:15) HIS WORD & adhere to IT for "reconciliation" unto HIM!
You know I like you a lot, Chitrangada. But this reads to me like 'doership' being in charge. That kind of Mission sounds mundane ... a recipe for 'burn out'. I feel that 'Doership' is for God. I respect your contribution, though. Much Love.
It depends how 1 "looks" at the word "do!" IF 1 doesn't believe ("do") & have faith ("do"), they haven't fulfilled their duty/responsibility to God!
I see belief & faith as "doing" or "work." whereas MOST see "doing" as physical!
Interesting notion. Faith and belief are actions. They are what should be called the "good work". I like it.
Norine, Faith is awesome and yes, it always lead to doing; action. But Faith sees itself like the body-temple, an instrument in the hands of Something Higher. The results are not in its hands, but in God's.
Eph 2:8-9 "For by grace r ye saved thru (doing) faith & that not of urselves: it is the gift (HS) of God. Not of (physical) works, lest any man should boast."
New Covenant (where we NOW live) is ALL SPIRITUAL!
My point, Norine. My point. You understand. Ultimately, God is the only Doer.
ALL Spiritual! Gal 5:16-17!
As I teach JESUS (aka Holy Spirit) on HP, I, as Chityrangada Sharan, have much to "do" to activate the POWER of the Holy Spirit in lives!
Not me, but Holy Spirit working thru me (Eph 2:9)!
As CS, "time is running out!"
Norine, like Chitrangada, 'Mission,' 'Duty' has led Christians to kill the Saints. 21st Century reconcilation is like making up after an argument; of coming to terms with. To reconcile with God is awesome though, for righteousness sake. Thank you.
You must have FORGOTTEN Eph 6:10-18!!! We are "Soliders," on a "mission" (spiritually) in the army of the LORD (Spiritual Warfare)!!!
Why so carnal (Rm 8:8;Gal 5:25)?
This is an ALL SPIRITUAL "mission!"
A fair point and I take note, Norine. The Saints -all of them - speak of themselves as servants, slaves, dust of the dust ... certain not soldiers, neither do they speak of being on 'missions.' But there are different ways, I suppose.
Eph 6:10-17. Did u read? Notice soldier's attire! v11:armour;12 wrestle(fight; spiritual wickedness);13 withstand(fight);14breastplate;15feet "shod"16shield, evil darts,17 helmet&sword!Sounds like a soldier on "mission" against demonic spirits 2
Yes, nice answer. I feel it leads to the goal or purpose. Destiny is sometimes unspent like fate. So, for instance, we may have to carry on in another life. Still, a wonderful answer. Thank you, Marc

Do u think we were predestined?
