Part III Who Am I and What is My Purpose Here?
The Road to YOU
Hidden Teachers Along Your Path
If I can just help one person through what I write, my life will have been all worthwhile.
As shared in Part II, today I am long past the shame that I had felt from not having joined any one religion. I am now able to see the light that many, from around the world carry.
But I am not religious. I am a spiritual being connected to what energy I find in these religions. I am connected to all energy, through the God inside of me.
What was it that knocked me onto the right track towards knowing who I truly was? I always knew…something, though I couldn’t put my finger on it. Ever so slight like a whisper, it’s call was almost undetectable. I could feel it.
But like swatting a fly, it too was swatted away again and again, time after time, until I had enough.
I knew I needed something. There was more to life. There was more, to me.
And that’s when I began to turn my life around.
Having already wasted a lot of my youth, as I had quit school, did drugs, drank alcohol, and had no purpose in life, I set out to obtain a college degree, and searched for ways to make a good income.
While I attained all of that, the career that I chose was without any true purpose -only to fulfill a financial need, not really caring about what I was doing and how it impacted the world.
Focused totally on my looks; clothes, me, me and oh ya, me, the physical me wanted more, and more. I had to fulfill the me that I thought I had to adorn more, house better, transport more stylishly and on and on.
When I look back today, I can’t believe the pathetic existence that I lived.
There’s nothing wrong with desiring nice things, wanting to look presentable, to live in a nice home or to drive in a nice vehicle, but when your whole entire life surrounds fulfilling that part of you that is the lowest form of humanity, it’s just a very unfulfilling and sad level to live from.
Sooner or later, enough will never be enough, and your emptiness inside will turn into a form of illness that exudes out of you from deep within.
At this point, this is where people often turn to drugs for anxiety or depression, they might develop stomach problems or other ailments. Some even blame their unhappiness on their spouse or the need to make even more money, to keep buying, looking better, outperforming, ever increasing…
It’s a sick society if all we focus on is the man or woman on the outside, instead of the spirit within. Click To Tweet
What will our children have left?
There was a long wait that day at a holistic doctor’s office in Brandon, Florida many years ago. Being the impatient individual that I am, I perused the books on her shelf in the waiting room. I remember finding one that looked intriguing.
She gave that book to me. I don’t remember her name or the name of that book, but she and it saved my life. I began my search for the real me that day.
I never looked back.
As I continued to be drawn further into the irresistible and magnetic appeal of the God energy, I began to feel its truths healing me, invigorating me, freeing me, guiding me, until finally, I had found my true self – Many years later.
Finding my true self did not happen in a day or even months. It all transpired over years. Why? Because I continued to hold on to bad thinking habits, and I did not meditate daily.
But one thing I did do right from the very beginning is, I acknowledged my own light energy or God energy and its existence throughout the universe. I continued my path of learning that began over twenty-five years ago.
My path propelled forward through a suggested book or a CD here and there, a quote here and there, something someone said, or a situation I found myself in.
I continued to follow the energy that I recognized more strongly as time went on.
My eyes were opening so that I could see.
The more I immersed myself into that energy that I could feel was true and guiding me, the more I continued to inch closer and closer, day by day to – me.
…I simply kept following that energy.
And here’s What I Learned.
One does not have to be a God, a prophet or known thought leader to lead others towards spiritual enlightenment.Click To Tweet
All that one must be in order to lead others towards spiritual enlightenment is a giver of light, sharing the God energy that already exists in everything – making others aware.
If more light is shared, perhaps it won’t take others so long to find their true selves.
Let us hope that this is where humanity is headed.
God energy is easily seen when one is already enlightened, but it is harder to see for one who is not.
Until you recognize your higher self and the God energy all around, you will need to just trust the energy. Follow it through faith.
It was not the Bible, a specific sacred text, or a prophet who helped me walk through the door of my awakening. It was many people and many things that brought me to my sacred self.
Today, I am still searching, driving deeper towards that ultimate perfection of our God Energy. This is our true purpose here.
Our Evolution Cannot Take Place Without Our Being On Purpose.
I had been searching frantically for something outside of me in the light, when all along, what I needed to find was right there in the darkness, inside of me. I just needed to shine the light onto that darkness.
What I found was me, my higher self. I am God, and so are you. We all can live through our higher self, if we can just get there and stop listening to those on the outside that get in our way.
Soon after my eyes had been opened, I began to look around. Like Eve who ate the Apple from the garden, my spirit became ever so strongly aware and open to the God energy that surrounded me.
I saw that light energy coming from the trees, from the birds, from the plants I had nurtured since early Spring. I saw it and felt it in my dog, my child, and even perfect strangers on the street. It was all around me. My teachers of the Light.
It was love emanating out to the world from these beings, both human and non-human. It was the same energy I had finally found on the inside of me.
There’s too much emphasis on which religion is right or wrong. Just follow the energy. Religion is simply an ancient translation made by those who lived during the very early beginning of our higher form of human existence.
There is no one alive today that knows anything for certain about any religion – who it was really written by, how many times it was translated, or whether it had ever been changed to suits one’s needs at the time. We can only rely on the God inside to show us, to reveal the truth of what is real.
Evolution Takes Place in More than Just the Physical. For Us, Evolution Takes Place in Our Mind and Soul. – Angela K Arden
Our lives really did not begin at birth. Our lives began billions of years ago, way back in the beginning of time, through changes forever transitioning forward up until the day we were born.
We were born who we were because of others and their choices along the way. We became who we are because of choices we and others, during our lifetime, made together. And the process continues, forever evolving, generation after generation, creating the world our children and our grandchildren live in.
We can create a new and better world going forward, through a generation that learns to rely on our God within in order to change the very world that we live in, instead of waiting on someone or something outside of ourselves.
This is spiritual evolution of mankind.
We need all hands on deck, enabling our children to become the Gods that they were intended to be, moving the world in a direction that it was meant to move in.

Here we’ll explore
The deception that we’ve lived under, for a very long time. Perfectionism has stolen our individual identities and self-worth. It was never meant for an individual, but for society as a whole.
