Isabeau Maxwell: What is the Meaning of Life?

Excellence Reporter: Isabeau, what is the meaning of life?

Isabeau Maxwell: We are here for experiences. To say we are here to learn is to suggest our higher self doesn’t know everything already. However, the higher self does not exist in linear time. It already knows the beginning, the end, and the middle of this life we have chosen to experience. 

By coming here to Earth to live a human lifetime, we are purposely stepping into a linear timeline. On this forward moving timeline, we are able to experience particular emotions we could not experience on the otherside such as anger, surprise, fear, or excitement. In order to experience these feelings, we need to be living through a calendar of days. When you are aware of how the outcome will be, the beginning and the end all at once, it is impossible to feel the intricate depth of particular emotions.

This linear lifetime allows us to have experiences we cannot have on the otherside. For example, we gift ourselves with the joy of gardening on a deeper level. We are able to experience the emotions associated with planting the seeds, waiting for the sprouts to appear, and harvesting the fruit, vegetables, or flowers.

The awareness of this path opens doors for us to be grateful for both the highs and the lows we experience. It allows us to step into the emotional moments we have and cherish being a spiritual being who is having a human experience. We connect on a deeper level with a bit more excitement to the seconds and minutes we spend in bliss and love of the process. And, even more importantly, it gives us a supportive purpose to walk through the hard times. It is the linear experiences, both good and bad, that are indeed the meaning of life.

A kiss on a baby’s cheek is more powerful when we have waited for that child to arrive. A heartbreak is more intense when we spend time not knowing how the end would unfold. And love is more moving when it develops day by day.
