A perfectly timed post, not to high jack it (your 'chosen one" reference did it), I'll jump in here as well. With a large crystal of salt (versus a grain), and a 'read (LIVE) at your own risk' disclaimer:
My 'flipped-switch' incident occured recently when I encountered someone who, flat-out blew me away. A divine, perfect, something beyond this physical place, touched my soul. Never before, nor since. Uh huh. Time stopped. The room evaporated into a white-golden light, just the two of us, in a warm happy pure overwhelming love-white place.... Like it happened this morning. I've felt like something has been missing, since. I have this nervous twitch (like a chill but I'm not cold). And elevens (and multiples), 'soul-path' (birthday) numbers, everywhere. Teasing, taunting, enticing, pushing, driving. And irony, lots of irony. ironic of me to point out I'm sure. What a strange place this has become.
Researching here there everywhere, this "WTF?" moment, elevens indicate, something. If we dare put-it-together. There is something, deeper going on here. Formal religeons serve the general purpose of directing folks to not be assholes, respect self & others, decency, morality, civility. We have 'evolved' from caves and purely animal behavior, to where civilization is today. How far can this 'evolution' take us? Assuming there is some intention at work, I offer that we are spiritual beings, in animal form.
A Couple things seem to re-occur to me (besides the digits):
1) LOVE- its all about love, we're (intended to be) products of it, good works are produced with it, if not, it matters not.
2) God created us in his image- (What image does your imagination imagine when you consider such an image?) an image requires one to perceive it, perceptions will vary between individuals. Your SOUL, my SOUL, OUR SOUL. Same thing. This and this alone binds us together to whatever fate.
Fantastic to see I'm not the only (one) one. We are awakening, we are the chosen ones: Report for duty. Now is the time. We may not have this opportunity again. Can you see how you've been blessed? What are you going to do with/about it?
MAYBE: You are here, now, to grow/develop your soul, OUR soul. By nurturing caring learning loving helping others, other souls, on our path, it furthers us all, individually AND collectively. If, Spiritually, we are only as strong as our weakest link, we HAVE WORK TO DO!!! We cannot fail in this mission. What is the real difference between anyone, you, me? Our cars, clothes, bright and shiney things, that which can be stolen by thieves and sullied by fools? Go deeper. Find the meaning. Some of us are closer than others, to the ultimate truth. Love, laugh, live more. Leave the animal in the cage, you are done with it.
Thank you, lights in the darkness. I might be wrong (ahem, it'd be the third time). So, to close, you folks seem to have a good handle on this, keep going. Or not. I'm gonna go drown worms and kill brain cells.
