The soul is rich with the experiences of many lifetimes.  Its purpose is to reach Cosmic Consciousness, a state of control over self and environment.  When this is achieved, right decisions are made naturally and the One Power becomes the central reality in our lives.  When the pressures of life become overpowering, meditating on The World will assist you to realize that life is cyclic; each cycle brings its own challenge and reward.  Life is a continuous struggle; each day brings a new experience.  Through mastery of each challenge we gain wisdom and control.  We rise above our earthly limitations and are liberated.  You have just completed a cycle and are free now to go in any direction.
