Spiritual Evolution is the Divine Plan for Life
As they awaken to the special nature of these times, I think that many people will ask what the point of life is. There will be so much occurring and what occurs will be of such consequence that some will ask us to start at the beginning.
And where is that beginning? That beginning is the Divine Plan for life. And that Plan can be summarized in two words: spiritual evolution. We move from God to God in quest of conscious awareness of our identity as God. We do that so that God may meet God in a moment of our enlightenment.
Let’s focus in on the messages of SaLuSa to hear his consistent explanation of the Divine Plan for life.
“Some [people] will … ask what the point of [life] is,” SaLuSa says, “and, Dear Ones, wherever you are and whatever you are doing it is for your growth and evolution.” (1) All of life, he says, is “a continuous round of experiences that you have all set in place to further your spiritual evolution.” (2) Life everywhere in the Universe “is continually evolving,” he continues; “it is a natural condition that forever impels you forward.” (3)
The impact of the Plan extends to every aspect of our lives: “Whatever you are involved in including your family and friends, the object is to apply yourself to situations in such a way that it will further your spiritual evolution.” (4)
But life is not only purposeful; it is also expansive. All our lives, SaLuSa tells us, “lead you ever onwards in your evolutionary search for upliftment.” (5) It was the desire to progress that led us to descend into duality in the first place: “The upliftment in your spiritual evolution is the whole purpose and outcome of your time in duality.” (6)
In terms of planning our next incarnation, we are never made to do something and our journey into duality is no exception. “The Creator did not force you into the cycle of duality,” SaLuSa says, “as you eagerly volunteered knowing you would one day return to your home in the higher dimensions.” (7) In our long journey into duality, we played both light and dark roles to enhance our learning.
“Each of you has had experiences of the dark and Light, because that is the reason you entered this cycle. Experience means progress and is your pathway back to the Light that knows no equal.” (8)
Eventually we’ll transcend the human condition and go on to greater destinies. “It must not be forgotten that you are all potential gods in the making. Your lives are infinite.” (9) Human beings now, we’ll eventually assume roles that are at present beyond our imagining.
“Knowing that your present life is just but one of many that will continue ad infinitum, you will realize that it is all for your experience as you grow in consciousness. It will gradually expand so that eventually it could embrace a whole planet, and way into your future some of you may chose to experience being a planetary logos.” (10)
But what end does all this tend towards? The same distant future is sought and shared by everyone and everything. As SaLuSa phrases it, “everything that exists is moving back to the Source.” To merge again with the same Source from which we came is the goal of everything that lives. Because this is our common destiny, “we join hands and help each other.” (11)
Some Design Elements of Life
One of the shared features or design elements present in all of life is the desire to evolve and progress.
“Evolution is quite natural and the desire to do so remains with you forever. It is fun and rewarding, particularly once you graduate to the higher dimensions. Heavenly might be a word that would convey what we mean, but your memories of such times are clouded by the amount of time you have already spent in duality.” (12)
There isn’t a life form that doesn’t feel the desire to evolve: “You … like every other soul [have] an innate urge to rise up higher and higher, and not even the lowest of the low completely lose it.” (13)
Another design element found in the plan for life is the feature of reincarnation. Its purpose too is to promote our spiritual evolution.
“The purpose of living many lives is to follow an overall plan that leads to your spiritual evolution. It is the only way to advance and leave the cycle of re-birth behind.” (14)
Our lives have often seen us suffer, SaLuSa tells us, because “it is through such experiences that you grow spiritually.” (15) However, none of these experiences is likely random; all are planned, he tells us. “Your existence is not some freak accident, but of a careful design intended to give you every opportunity to move off the wheel of rebirth.” (16)
“Remember that you have most likely had hundreds of lives in all manner of roles and situations. These have been carefully planned to give you suitable experiences that will advance your evolution. There is no experience that is truly a random event, and certainly each one is an important step on your path.” (17)
Evolution is independent of all situations and beliefs. Even if we choose to remain on the same dimension rather than to ascend, we still progress.
“No matter who you are or how you view life, or what your beliefs are you will still evolve through the experiences each life provides you. You may go in all directions at various times, but the fact is that the net result will see you progress towards the Light.
“You may choose to stay in your present dimension, and that does not mean you are not evolving. You can return to any level you desire in the interests of gaining the experience you need. It is not usually a decision you make alone, and your mentors and Guides will assist you in making it.” (18)
No one is hurried on his or her journey: “You have a lot to learn about so many things but have as much time as you need, because life is infinite and you have the freedom to choose your own experiences.” (19) This may sound contradictory to the earlier statement that all was planned. What SaLuSa means here is that we choose our life plan before birth and then follow it as closely as we can during our lives.
To some souls it would appear that there is no impetus or movement in their lives, but, SaLuSa reminds us, “be assured they are planned with growth in mind.” (20)
Spiritual laws are another design element of life that exist to see that we learn our lessons well before we finally leave them.
“Spiritual laws are defined by God and apply to all living forms that have the gift of freewill, and when these are not followed the experiences will be repeated until you overcome them. That is spiritual evolution and your consciousness will not be lifted to higher levels until the lessons have been learnt.” (21)
We receive guidance throughout our lives to help us make wise choices: “Your progress is not taken lightly and is carefully considered for each soul, and you are guided to experience that offers you the best opportunity to evolve.” (22) Although our lives are planned before birth, we may not stick to our life plan and therefore our guides are here to remind us and help us make the best choices.
Some souls may go through the same experiences many times, he adds, but “there is always something to be learnt.” (23) Because higher beings understand the manner in which life works, they have no judgments towards us, no matter what we do or how long we take.
“There is no judgment at the higher levels, and we simply see beautiful souls making their way back to the Light. The whole purpose of being in duality is to grow through experience, so why indeed should anyone’s choice be looked upon as different to anyone else’s.
“Your lives all carry responsibility and your actions are accountable for by you, but once cleared karmically there are no recriminations. Remember that experiences are set up with souls that have all agreed to play out their respective roles. Someone has to take the part of the dark Ones, and believe us, Dear Ones – you have all acted on both sides.” (24)
What Experiences Await Us in the Cosmos
Even the galactics, who are ascended beings, continue to evolve.
“You might ask where do we stand as far as evolution is concerned, and we would reply that we as member civilizations of the Galactic Federation have already ascended. We continue to evolve, and will do so until we find ourselves at One with the Source of All That Is.” (25)
The galactic nations now here around the Earth played a role in our early evolution, he informs us.
“You will find that Galactic Federation members are no strangers to your early evolution, and in fact have had more than a hand in it. There is more of a connection between us than you might imagine, and we have had a part to play in your genetic engineering resulting in what you are today. When you get to see the various types of Beings in our Federation, you will marvel at how many have a close resemblance to how you look now.” (26)
They take particular care when intervening not to interfere with our choices around evolution: “When an advanced civilization intervenes with one that is still evolving, much care is necessary to ensure that it does not interfere with their path of evolution.” (27)
We have no idea of the variety of life out there in the universe: “Whatever you can imagine already exists somewhere in the Cosmos, and there is nothing that you cannot experience to fulfill your desires.” (28)
Moreover, whomever we meet, we can take it for granted that they too are experiencing in order to evolve: “When you meet with Beings from another civilization, know that they too are carrying out a life plan to move further ahead in their evolution.” (29)
Ascension is the doorway that will lead us into a wonderful new world of experience.
“You have so much to learn, and Ascension will be your first major step towards a true understanding of your purpose for being here.
“You will also learn of the continuing plan for your greater evolution in the higher realms. You are not afloat like a cork aimlessly bobbing up and down in the sea, but have a clear course mapped out ahead of you and we shall steer you towards it.” (30)
“Ascension will lift you up to levels that you passed through on your downward path into duality,” he tells us. (31) Eventually the new journey that begins with Ascension will lead us Home.
“You are due to start a new journey that will take you back to Source.
“What the next few years will do is to offer you the opportunity to lift up your sights, and set them upon the most lighted expression you can achieve. After all, the object of working your way to Ascension is to move into a state of enlightenment, and continue to evolve. You will ever move onwards.” (32)
Therefore all life follows a Divine Plan of spiritual evolution. Repeated lifetimes present us with situations that were planned before birth and that help us to grow as spiritual beings on our journey from God to God. We’ve descended into duality for our spiritual growth and experience and now ascend to begin a journey in the higher dimensions, that will see us pass through many exalted roles before finally merging again with the Source, which for all of us is the end of the journey and the object of spiritual evolution.
