Spirituality - The Why of Life

Why life exists in the first place is really beyond our comprehension. Life is and is the expression of a vast intelligence that is reflected in the immensity and functioning of the cosmos down to the elements that form the basis and structure of life in minute detail. In thinking about the big picture of life, it would seem that the most important part is that which we cannot see. What is it all about? What is it for? What is the reason a bird flies and migrates, fish struggle to spawn, a seed grows to flower, the Earth planet has life forms, and a human child is born with the opportunity to understand life in a conscious way? Thousands and thousands of questions to understand the intelligence behind the expression of life in reality. Kabalarians call that infinite intelligence Reason, the Reason of Being.

The Reason is the blueprint of life in every aspect and detail. Life itself reflects the blueprint in the functioning of the cosmos right down to your life on Earth. Everything and everyone is important because of the Reason that is a part of every living thing. It is up to each of us to understand how we fit into life we are privileged to share with one another and to fulfil a worthwhile purpose as does every other species. Life is not a whim, but is the result of the expression of intelligence and the unfoldment of the plan in the reality of being. This concept Kabalarians call the Principle of Life or God, the Principle. The Principle of Life can be understood through the Mathematical Principle. That is how we start to answer the questions about life, just like science uses mathematics to discover the wonders of life and the cosmos.

Alfred J. Parker wrote a book called, "Life's Purpose," which explains the purpose of life and how mathematics is the tool to measure and understand life. Your name creates your life through your personality. Names can be measured to determine the results in your life. Your purpose can be measured from your date of birth, the moment you took your first breath and became a living soul. How beautiful is that to be able to understand your true Reason for Being.

The Kabalarian Philosophy teaches that spirituality is an attained mental state of Conscious awareness. It is not something that is promised some day in the hereafter. It is an attainment, possible here in life, now, through your own mental efforts. Spirituality is the state of accomplishment, of fulfilment of your purpose in life. It is just like the fruit on the tree that started from a seed and through growth to the fulfilment of the tree's purpose. So, spirituality is the result of each person's mental development to attainment.

The Kabalarian Philosophy is realistic inasmuch as it promises you success through personal application. It is realistic inasmuch as it says if you want spirituality you must create it for yourself through your own efforts: here is the Principle of Life, which if you understand and apply will guarantee you successful spiritual development.

Spirituality is a growth in mind that represents the broadness of perspective that is associated with the wise men of the ages, where we are above the pettiness of life, the petty personality problems, the selfishness, and all those other incidentals that tie mankind to mediocrity. Spirituality is not something that is denied anyone because spirituality is created by each person.

What do you think spirituality should be? Would it not represent the broadest understanding of life, the understanding of the principles of life, not just a thorough understanding of the books in the library which are merely the recordings of men's minds? It is the understanding of the laws of being. Spirituality is the living personification of those universal laws.

We are all here to play a part in life. Every species in life has its place and reason. Mankind is here to have dominion, to keep all things in harmony. As all things in the universe are kept in harmony through the principle of balance and equilibrium as we see manifested through the spheres, planets, and the universe, so mankind plays that same part in a conscious sense on the earth. We have been given dominion on this earth and all things upon it that fly above it, and all things connected with it. We have been made the steward who must give an accounting.

Man's purpose is to become the eyes, the ears, and the mouthpiece of this great Principle of Life so that he expresses his potential. What is the purpose of the piano? To express music. What is the purpose of man? To be a channel for conscious intelligence. That is what we are here for.

You read the papers, listen to the news, and you wonder what is happening. Mankind is destroying itself through its indulgences, illogical attitudes, wars, and strife. We need a philosophy of life that will help us to live constructively, which is so much more pleasurable, interesting, and enjoyable. You talk to anyone who has given up smoking, drinking, or been at death's door and they will tell you it is so much better to be healthy and alive.

We are all a part of the universe, regardless of culture or creed. We are all here for a purpose and to live that purpose. We learn first that before we can create peace or love our fellow man, we must first find that peace within ourselves. We must first learn how to master our emotions, how to develop the emotional power, and how to transmute it from an emotional power into a mental power, giving power and positivity to the mind, so that we may walk in the darkness and still find light within our own consciousness, that we may build a wall around us to protect us from negativity, that we may have the mental power to delve into and solve human and material problems. They are not mysterious things; they are life, that is all, just life.

Spirituality is not something far off in the future; it is a part of you, now. It is something that you can become. Within every flower seed is the power to become spiritually fulfilled as a flower. It does not have a mind, and so it cannot be a conscious fulfilment, naturally. Nevertheless, within the seed is the potential for the fulfilment. Within the seed of man is that potential for conscious fulfilment which is universality of mind. You have that potential, it is within you, but if you do not try to develop it, what good is it?

In looking into the Kabalarian Philosophy you will come to understand the importance of the physical body as a vehicle for the power with. The body must be respected and cared for by the application of the physical laws of right eating and deep breathing principles. The mind must control the body, not the other way around where desire rules. The mental laws of being able to direct our life in a constructive way is important and it starts with a balanced mind through a balanced name. The spiritual laws direct the mind to higher levels of universal spiritual expression. These principles are applicable. You get to prove everything you apply. If you are looking for a healthy, happy, constructive way of life, then you have come to the right place.
