According to The Michael Teachings, we arrange several overleaves when planning the blueprint of a life. These set the framework for our personality type and create the perfect foundation for the lessons that we seek to learn in this lifetime. The seven goals are: Re-evaluation, Growth, Discrimination, Acceptance, Submission, Dominance or Stagnation.
This is not a rigid system of thought. One can utilize any of the goals when working through a challenge, but the primary goal is often the answer that we seek when navigating through the intensities of life. The two most commonly used are Growth and Acceptance.
If Growth is your goal it indicates that your soul seeks to expand rapidly; therefore, you’ll often have many intense situations that set the stage for moments of awakening. Someone working with that particular goal instinctively learns how to seek the lesson inherent within the challenge.
For those using Acceptance as a goal, the answer to almost every problem is that they must learn to accept what is and then work with it rather than against it. Rejection is the hardest thing they face. After several years of fighting to fix something they perceive as wrong, they ultimately learn the peace and unconditional love that Acceptance has to offer.
“Know thyself” is written at the temple of Delphi. Once you understand your purpose, strengths and foibles in this lifetime, you are well on your way to enlightenment.
