As I mark one of my natal days in the sexagenarian bracket, I cannot help but muse over my earthly sojourn and ask: why am I here on earth? From whence did I come and to where am I journeying to when the curtain on this stage is eventually drawn at the close of this incarnation?
As I reflect, I wonder what invisible cosmic forces determined my race, gender and earthly parentage. And I ask why I was born into the Awak family in Enwang; I ask why Omneity decreed I be an Òrò native, an Akwa Ibom person, a Nigerian and Black African in the present incarnation. Indeed, there are so many questions, so many why, why, why begging for answers. I may never know.
The religions of the world are not agreed on the chief purpose why humans are on earth. Science has politely refused to pretend that it has any answers. Philosophy, mysticism and spirituality all seem to have come up with nearly identical views on how and why what they ideate as the pure Soul had to descend into dense and corrupt materiality and from there crawl its way back to the proverbial edenic paradise.
From the minuscule that I know, the predominant three Abrahamic and nearly all the Eastern religions of the world are agreed on the idea of an edenic paradise in the hereafter. That is consoling.
I do not know, and the level of humble spiritual ignorance doesn’t allow me to question, what combination of previous karmic relationships and/or entanglements determined my present race, gender, parentage, ethnicity and nationality.
But this I know. That Omneity had a divine purpose for why I was sent here in this incarnation; and that the stations of my early life were to give me ample opportunities to prepare for the Cosmic Mission ahead. I know that the just, loving, kind, and benevolent GOD of my Realisation and Understanding intends for me and others to invest energy in the good work to make our conditions better, to replicate on earth the beauties of the celestial abode.
As I mark my natal day today, I humbly rededicate myself to selflessly work in the vineyard of GOD to bring Peace and Love and Kindness and Prosperity to every person I may be blessed to meet and all sentient beings on earth.
On this my natal day, I sincerely FORGIVE everyone who I may have thought did me any wrong in any form or manner; just as I humble ask for the forgiveness of all those I may have hurt or offended or neglected in any way in the past sixty plus years.
On this day, we reaffirm our solemn pledge to work tirelessly with all the Disciples Of Light to make our world a better place than we met it. I pray Omneity, our Solar Deity, Planetary God, Continental God, national demigod, Archangels, Holy Angels and the Beings of Light to bountifully bless our endeavors and give us the opportunity and Will to improve the condition of the generality of humanity, our people and country.
*MAY GOD, THE SUPREME BEING OF THE UNIVERSE, DIVINE FATHER AND MOTHER, BLESS US ALL WITH GOOD HEALTH, PEACE, LOVING KINDNESS, ILLUMINATION, DIVINE PROTECTION, PROSPERITY AND ABUNDANCE TO OVERFLOW.*
