Metaphysics teaches that every soul has a purpose in life, the part each of us plays in the great divine plan. The vision of this plan is known as The Tapestry of Life. You are shown your Tapestry of Life before you incarnate to guide and inspire you. The power to accomplish this plan is placed in your aura and consciousness. It then becomes your mission to weave this tapestry in physical life by seeking, finding and fulfilling all that you came to this earth to do.
On this tapestry you are shown key people you are meant to interact with, such as family, friends and colleagues, as well as the career you are meant to have, karmic conditions to work through and experiences that will enrich your life.
In general, there are twelve stages in the unfoldment of your Tapestry of Life. You will unfold these stages gradually through the years you are on Earth. So there are many things you are meant to accomplish. Chances are you have already fulfilled some things you were meant to do, even if you did not see it that way. In the same way, there may be things left undone, or things you are in the process of accomplishing. The question to ask is what can you do at this point to fulfill your life’s work? It may be you are already on track and need to keep moving in that same direction undeterred. Or there may be changes you need to make and you will need to show courage and determination through the process of transformation.
Life will work with you to complete your purpose because your purpose is not just about you; it’s also how you are contributing to the greater whole. Just as people may be in your tapestry that you need to interact with, you are also in the tapestry of other people who need to interact with you.
What happens if you don’t fulfill what’s on your tapestry, don’t accomplish all you came here to do? Unfortunately, this happens too often. Many times, souls don’t fulfill the full breadth of their life’s work because they let cares and concerns get in the way, or they get distracted or lose their motivation. In these situations, that part of your tapestry remains unfulfilled, and you will need to complete that part in another lifetime. That is why it’s so important to do everything in your power to seek and fulfill what you are meant to do.
Life is dynamic, and sometimes your Tapestry of Life needs to be adapted due to conditions outside your control. For example, say you are meant to marry someone but that person refuses to marry you. You are ready to do your part, but the other person is not. In those cases, your tapestry would be rewritten by the Divine to bring someone else in your life to fulfill that role. In a later incarnation, you would still meet up with that original person to fulfill the original plan.
You discover the various stages of your tapestry as your life unfolds. The key is to stay active. As Rudyard Kipling said, “Fill the unforgiving minute with sixty seconds worth of distance run.” Do everything you can to complete the dreams and aspirations you have. Meditate with Divine Light to inspire you with the vision and understanding as to what the Divine has designed for you.
