Why are we here?
It is an age old question. But it is not the same as, “What is the meaning of life?”. I just want to address why we are here. “What is our purpose?”.
It is my philosophy that God had created the Heavens and the Earth. Not surprisingly, I think many other's will agree on this. God created light the first day too. I believe that with everything there is in Heaven and on Earth, God created. And therein lies the answer.
It is apparent that God could take the time to make everything, but why not have someone do the work for him? Perhaps there were a lot of spirits hanging around and God put them to work. Work was a gift to these spirits for it gave them a chance to become physical. The spiritual side of us as humans (perhaps the light or water is used to “explain” this) can be the avenue for which God instructs us to do his work. Because the spirits (Angels perhaps) each have a different personality and hearts desire, it is what gives us our “free will”.
God says he divided the light from dark, the water from land. Could light be our spirituality and dark be our physicality? Is the division of water from land used to explain the same thing? Or, is this God's way of telling us where we came from? If so, we now have why and where.
I think it is telling that water is everywhere, in solid, gas, or liquid form. It is in the air we breathe. It bridges the spiritual to the physical. We cannot synthetically make or clone water. Yet, it is molecularly simple. And as for the land, it is much easier to see that our bones, our hair, and everything physical about us only grows when it is fed physical matter. I believe the DNA we have is simply our software program. We need to blink without thinking. I think this program (DNA) is what makes us different from a robot. We are merged from 3 forms at the beginning; Our spirituality (water), our physicality (atoms and molecules), and our DNA (our God given software program to keep us running in good order – physically).
God has work to be done. We are here to do it. We are here to do the physical work of the spiritual realm. Yes. That is my answer. Why are we here? We are here to do the physical work of the spiritual world. And if we do well and succeed, I have a feeling God will give us more work to do. And this is a gift. I am sure there is more to this theory I have; Explaining Love, Adam and Eve, Good versus Evil, why we were given Free Choice, and etc. I'll just leave that to all of the other philosophers out there. I need to get back to work. God's watching.
