Each soul is potentially divine. The goal is to manifest this divinity within by controlling nature, external and internal. Do this either by work, worship, psychic control or philosophy — by one, or more, or all of these — and be free. This is the whole of religion. Doctrines, dogmas, rituals, books, temples, and forms, are but secondary details. -- Swami Vivikenanda

Gloria Wendroff: Heavenletter #4581, "Why You Are Alive On Earth"
Why You Are Alive on Earth
Published on: June 10, 2013
What is the worth of anything without love, beloveds? What is the worth of life without love? That which is of the utmost meaning is love. Consider love the salt of life. Love itself IS life, beloveds. When anyone forswears love, he has forsworn life.
The love We speak of here is not accolades of love to or from you. It is the love from your heart that We speak of. We are speaking of the heart of you. The heart of something means the meaning of something. That you are alive means you have been chosen to give love. I chose you. Of all the possibilities, I chose you and you and you. The point is that you are you. Regardless of whatever else may lurk in your heart, your heart is meant for love and love alone. The meaning of you is love.
You may ask: “What am I alive for on Earth?”
My answer is: “You are alive here on Earth to express love for everyone and everything.” You need not look for a more esoteric meaning, a meaning that may seem loftier to you, that you were chosen to do great things, that you, of all the people in the world were chosen to do a great deed on Earth, to play an earthshaking role etc. etc.
The point is that you were each chosen for Greatness on Earth, and your Greatness is love. How your love expresses is individual, and yet you are here on Earth in the human form you are encased in to express love. That’s it. That may not seem fancy enough for your tastes, and, yet, that is it.
How do you personally express love? Express love as love. Even a thank you expresses love. A smile expresses love. And it may well be that the greatest love you can express is acceptance of everyone and everything, acceptance of the world and everyone in it. To express love and companionship for the next person you see is expressing the Greatness of Love.
Be like Me, will you? Despite the surface differences you may latch onto, I express love and acceptance, and that’s what I do. That is My purpose. Does My purpose need to be loftier than that? A map has been drawn, and it's a Map of Love. It showers from Heaven upon everyone and everything, even in the arena you call past, present, and future.
Align with love, My beloveds. Align with Me. Be done with anything that is less than love. What do you need anything less than love for? For misery? For your misery and/or another’s? What do you want pain for, for you or anyone? What is the gain of that? Perhaps a senseless sense of power. True power is love. Bitterness is not power. Vanquishing another is not power. If you want to be in control in a big way, let go of everything but love in your heart, love from your heart, love to an fro, loving embracing all hearts on Earth.
Can you not love Me? And I do exist within everyone. I exist within everyone you meet. What you may see as the lowliest of the low is also My love. He may not know that. But now you know that.
If you want to be important, be a Way-Shower of Love. And, if importance matters not to you, also be a Way-Shower of Love. Beloveds, love is the only game in town.
This is your fate, beloveds. Your fate is to love. There is nothing more than love. Everything else is less. What do you have when you have a million dollars and you keep it to yourself? What do you have when you have a million-dollar heart and keep it all to yourself? What do you have when you have nothing and are without love? You are the same love as I, and now be it.
