Man in his basest form has little or no awareness of the spirit. No awareness of his power or that there are perhaps other karmic timelines, or soul contract lessons being played out. Other than his tiny world view that he is hypnotised by, convinced of, little else grabs his attention, until, these limited paths become predictable and repetitive, then we become frustrated and begin to look elsewhere.
Spirit created the duality of abundance and lack to fully experience total abundance with the perspective of total lack. Consider that nature is perfectly balanced and fully abundant. The cycle of the seasons, death and regeneration is always at work, there is no moment when the program switches off.
The lesson lies in the inner world, on identifying the messenger of the outer world.
