Why Am I Here-the Aged Old Question of Uncertainty in Life

Being uncertain in life and wondering why am I here while constantly pondering what is life all about, can lead to fearing an uncertain future. This may hold you back from actually living the life of your dreams.

Fearing the future just might be what makes you miss over great things destined for you.

A Course in Miracles states, “Yet time is but another phase of what does nothing. It works hand in hand with all other attributes with which you seek to keep concealed the truth about yourself. Time neither takes away nor can restore.”

I hope you will read this article at a comfortable pace, much as you would while driving on the highway on an exciting and overdue vacation.

You know, enjoying the peace of the landscape as you travel in and out of different states, growing ever more relaxed as you anticipate your destination. 

(Here’s a related article on how to find peace of mind in daily life so you may live life on your terms.) 

Think the same way about your life’s journey.

Yes, try to see the words and sentences in this article as you might view or experience the different roads you take on your trip, all of them for your enjoyment and a feeling of “getting somewhere.”

It’s how successful people think, some have gladly told me!

Here, however, I ask that you adjust your speed when necessary as you move along, as though minor roadwork is in progress in the miles ahead, with yellow caution lights for your attention. 

Please read without interrupting your rhythm, but slowing your speed if you must.  The key is to let the real meaning be yours.

What really frightens you?

What we are about to discuss has even raised caution in my own writing of the article, and the pace of my thought process is adjusted so that important words are not forgotten. 

My goal is that you have a successful journey, not only in this article but throughout your life and your time here on Earth.  I hope you discover the answer to: why am I here?

The area ahead I consider to be delicate, and I believe pertains to the law of attraction, or we may say, the Likability Laws, so please bear with me as we move along through this zone. 

(Here’s more on what you can do to improve your life and striking ways to better yourself.) 

The goal is that we are in the same zone, together.

While continuing on, ask yourself, or think about, what it is that frightens you about this world and gives you uncertainty in life.  Is it the uncertainty in life and of the world, or is it the uncertainty about yourself?

A Course in Miracles further states, “What you remember never was. It came from causelessness which you confused with cause.”

If I were to go around announcing to everyone I run into that my mission is to save the world, wouldn’t you agree most others would question my sanity? 

This is the type of attention the ego in us all strives for.  Yet, it is my mission to help the world, and so is it yours.  It is the part in all of us that ends all choice.


It is the decision to accept ourselves as God created us within Him. 

When we give ourselves choices, something to decide over, we’re telling ourselves that we accept uncertainty of who we are. 

In book 1 of the series we look closely at…Why do we doubt who we are?  What is it we are so uncertain about?  It always seems to be this simple question that haunts us: What am I?  And, on a deeper level, we often ask: Why am I here?

And in book 2 we find the answer to…But try not to ask, “Why am I here?” Rather, ask yourself, “Is God real?” If He is unreal you really have no sense in asking “why am I here?”

In other words, if God is unreal then so must you be unreal, as well.

If He is real, and you accept that He created you within His Mind—an extension of Him, then you’ll know Who you are and why you are here.

To why you are here,
