The Reason behind Human Life
Why do we live on this earth? What is the purpose of human existence? Why is there a material creation with its manifold life forms? The answers to these questions can be found far back in the past, in the world beyond, the spiritual world, where ages ago a momentous event took place.
Part of the spiritual beings became guilty of disloyalty and disobedience against God’s order which led to their apostasy, their outcast from heaven and the loss of their divine consciousness. However, through the mercy of God a way was prepared for all the fallen to regain their divine consciousness step by step. And so, human beings tread on their long and arduous, but also hopeful, way back to their spiritual homeland.
