There comes a time in every person’s life where they question their existence and what it is all about. As you live your life on lovely Planet Earth, you are evolving your soul existence and sending the ‘data’ to All that Is. And since each and every one of us is a part of All that Is, we are also collecting that data for ourselves and learning from it.
As you go along the path toward enlightenment, certain things/people/situations that are in your life and do not serve the purpose of your pursuit will fall away. This can be a very emotionally painful and stressful process because it can include a job loss, separating from significant relationships, a change of environment, etc. which are traumatic events from a human perspective.
