Imagine this…you are eternal. You have existed in pure form as an aspect of the great whole. You are pure love, light and energy resting in the bosom of the One and suddenly, you’re inspired to individuate into physical form. And so, you decide to orchestrate your coming forth. So you wait. You have an ideal in your conscious mind of what type of experience you would like to have. You’re fully aware of the multitude of choices and so you ponder what it is you would like to understand better by manifesting into a human form. You decide that you would like to have this experience as a male and alternate your gender with each incarnation thereafter. You pick a channel in which to come forth based upon the vibrational frequency of your parents and the genes they will provide you with. You know all the various nuances of your experience but not the experience itself. You know that choosing an earthly experience will involve stepping down your vibration to that of the environment. Your earthly body will be heavy and dense causing you to feel encumbered and trapped without the ability to be inter-galactic. You will take on an emotional body that will be uncomfortable at times and you will be subjected to the human condition. Your ability to create will be hindered by the slowing down of your vibration and everything will be on a delayed response. Your three dimensional awareness will lack all the nuances of full consciousness and at times it will feel as if you are disconnected from the One. You fully understand every forfeiture and yet you decide to manifest into human form so that you may have an earthly experience. And so, in spite of giving up what you know for what you don’t know, you incarnate into human form dawning your life suite as an Avatar.
In Hinduism, the word Avatar literally means, the deliberate “descent” of a deity primarily from Heaven to Earth. The Sanskrit noun avatāra is derived from the verbal root tṝ "to cross over", combined with the prefix ava "off, away, down". In the Bhagavata Gita it reads; “Whenever righteousness wanes and unrighteousness increases, I send myself forth, in order to protect the good and punish the wicked. In order to make a firm foundation for righteousness, I come into being age after age.” (4. 7-8)
The concept of Avatar within Hinduism is most often associated with Vishnu, the preserver or sustainer aspect of God within the Hindu Trinity or Trimurti. Although in reality we are all deities living in human form for the purpose of our evolution into greater aspects of ourselves. For clarification, I want you to understand what is being suggested here. You are created in the image and likeness of the Divine. You are an aspect of it. The only difference is one of degree so the part can not be different from the whole. This means you are divinity but you have chosen to forget this very important aspect of yourself by becoming human. Deities are depicted in a variety of forms, but are frequently expressed as having human form. While some faiths and traditions consider it blasphemous to imagine or depict a deity as having any concrete form, we are each divine in our own rite. Deities are usually considered to be immortal. As pure energy in human form, your essence can never die. Deities are commonly assumed to have personalities and to possess consciousness, intellects, desires, and emotions. Does this sound like you?
Deities, incarnations, and manifestations it’s all the same. You and I have deliberately manifested into human form for the sole purpose of evolving into higher forms of ourselves. Earth is just one of the many places where life can be experienced. There is a vast array of worlds and realities that exist beyond the limited confines of earthly thinking and understanding. We limit ourselves when we only subscribe to the possibilities of what is known.
The Universe is a myriad place of planets, inhabitants, existences and realities that we have hitherto not even begun to understand. It seems too farcical to imagine having come from divinity and to be here living as a deity in human form. But it’s true, you are part and parcel to God which makes you a god in your own rite. You possess all the attributes of the One but you are limited in your abilities because of the laws of this planet and the Universe. This does not mean that you lack the quintessential make-up of divinity. It merely means that while you are here, in this form, you must abide by the laws governing this realm of existence. This is what makes living in human form so difficult for us to stomach because we come from a place where anything is possible. Having accepted this earthly assignment, we’ve forfeited those limitless possibilities to a certain degree. Many of us can actually sense the loss and our physical body feels as though it were a prison. The Earth plane begins to weigh on us and we long for the time when we were in our rightful essence. Be that as it may, you are still divinity incarnated in human form for the purpose of your evolution. You have dawned your life suite and are here among us experiencing life as a human. Deep in the recesses of your cosmic memory, you feel the truth of these words as something begins to surface in your consciousness reminding you of the truth that you are an Avatar.
