Your purpose is to cherish those who think they are suffering.
Following the teachings of all the masters, including the Christ and the Buddha, one comes to experience their own innate nature which is JOY; one finds a space of pure JOY. Find it through forgiveness and the cultivation of compassion.
It is not a matter of finding enlightenment, as much as removing the obstacles to the awareness of what already is; perfection.
In a Course in Miracles, Jesus says: Nothing real can be threatened. Nothing unreal can exist. Herein lies the Peace of God. In Buddhism, we come to the same understanding; that all beings are perfect Buddhas, but not all are aware.
To be chosen is simply to be aware of your status as a Child of God.
We are all then chosen, yet not all aware.
Your choice is simply this; to be aware or not.
Choose in this moment; awareness of your Christ nature,
your Buddha mind – or not!
"If we progress the world progresses. As you are, so is the world. Without understanding the Self what is the use of understanding the world? Without Self-knowledge, knowledge of the world is of no use. Dive inward and find the treasure hidden there. Open your heart and see the world through the eyes of the true Self. Tear aside the veils and see the divine majesty of your own Self."
- Sri Ramana Maharshi
"Then it was as if I suddenly saw the secret beauty of their hearts, the depth of their hearts, where neither sin nor desire nor self knowledge can reach, the core of their reality, the person that each one is in the eyes of the Divine. If only they could see themselves as they really are. If only we could see each other that way all the time. There would be no more war, no more hatred, no more cruelty, no more greed...I suppose the big problem would be that we would fall down and worship each other."
- Thomas Merton
