Because God is all about love and love is the key to everything, the overwhelming message NDErs share is that we come to earth to learn all about love. Our primary purpose on earth is to learn and practice love. It’s as if our earthly lives were specifically created and constructed to provide us with millions of opportunities to learn and demonstrate love. We get to see and experience the power of love in action – and witness and feel the negative consequences of a lack of love. Learning exactly what it means to love ourselves and others, despite the many ups and downs of our earthly existence, despite interacting with people who sometimes act in unloving ways and even outright cruel ways, seems to be the primary purpose of life according to NDErs.
“Earthly life has been given to us to learn how to love! This is the message that was so infused in my consciousness when I was united in love with my Great Teacher. Every moment is an opportunity to learn that lesson… This profound wisdom is shared with you in the hope that you will choose to live lovingly while you have the many opportunities that appear before you. Perhaps listening to the vast numbers of individuals who have encountered the Divine down through the ages, saints, mystics, and sages of all religions, near death experiencers, and others who have had spiritually transformative experiences, humanity can begin to comprehend the one message that echoes throughout the voices of all those experiencers – LOVE ONE ANOTHER!” Nancy Clark
“I learned that one of the main reasons we’re here on Earth is simple: to love. That’s it…Yes, we are here to enjoy our human selves, too, and perhaps even learn, but the heart of why we are here is love. While the message sounds pretty simple, as humans it’s not always easy to put into practice. We’re asked to love everyone regardless of their political persuasion, religious affiliation, their job title, annual income, skin color, age, and who they in turn love… It doesn’t mean that we have to agree with everyone, but it does mean that through love and compassion, we work to overcome our differences and solve our problems, together, as one humanity… What is does mean, though, is that we recognize other people fully for who they are: someone who carried a spiritual spark of love at his or her core. It means that we show them respect, compassion, kindness, gentleness, and thus love.” Nancy Rynes
“There is only one truly significant work to do in life, and this is love; to love nature, to love people, to love animals, to love creation itself, just because it is. To serve God’s creation with a warm and loving hand of generosity and compassion – that is the only meaningful existence.” George Rodonaia
“It occurred to me that the love from this Light was so overwhelming that this life must have something to do about learning to love like that. Or perhaps, even more to the point, learning to BE love like that.” Dr. Ron Kennedy
Clearly, learning how to love and be love is our primary purpose for our human life.
