God, the eternal father, wants nothing more than all of his children to reach their full potential. He gave each of his children a body and an opportunity to develop new skills within the confines of the body. It is the temple that houses the soul.
Often times the scriptures give some direction about the plan the Father has for His children. Matthew 25: 40 reads “And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto the least of these my brethren, you have done it unto me.”
So in very basic terms, Dad gave each soul a body and time to come to earth and said “Treat each other as you would treat him, learn and love.” It sounds like such a simple concept, but all souls are different and the physical bodies are different. There are personalities, some sour and others pleasant. Each soul has different talents and things to learn. It is the goal that each soul find that sparks their eternal awareness. That spark is the true beauty of the soul. Sadly there are some who never find the true beauty.
It is easy to identify those souls who have reached an understanding with the plan. Although they are very different there are obvious commonalities.
~ Unconditional love
Unconditional love is a hard concept to understand. You can love a person and not condone their behaviors. Parents are very good at loving their children and yet not allowing certain behavior in their home. Much like the way Jesus removed the money changers from the temple, He did not persecute them. He stopped this behavior and moved on.
~ Giving heart
Pain is something the body feels and suffering is of the mind and the heart. Souls with deep beauty see pain and suffering and do whatever is in their power to serve for the comfort of others. As servants of Father in Heaven, they see it as their calling and opportunity to learn and grow.
Tolerance is a skill that needs to be practiced. It does not come naturally. You have to stop and look at things from a different perspective. Even though you may not agree with them, you can practice tolerance.
Even souls that suffer have a joy that cannot be silenced. If they have found their light, they will be able to see the good things. In fact, they will seek out the things that bring eternal joy in their lives and the lives of those whom they love.
So look deep inside and see if you can find just a little piece of light that has been hiding the heart and become a soul of great beauty.
