The Universe, the “I” has a way of giving us messages in multiple formats to help us really get a message.

This week seem particularly poignant.

I’ve “known” for a lifetime that I chose to be part of the family line I am in. It was purposeful. I needed the particular combination of experiences, patterns and opportunities it provided.

Somehow I needed a reminder. This week the message came in the form of a conversation with a very wise friend and Lesson 5.

“5.4 The mind, which pervades the body, is largely the result of heredity, which, in turn, is simply the result of all the environments of all past generations on the responsive and ever moving life forces.”

Past generations were preparing for me to be here now. I get to choose what I do with that. Do I live by default or on purpose?
