Most of Life Lessons
One of the points of this website is that "Life" is a master teacher. Let me define "Life"
as I am using it here. Stay with me. It's a bit complicated. It's everything you can imagine and more. Our true nature
is that we are Loving Spirit. We were created by a Loving Creator for the purpose of receiving Its love, feeling loved, and
then extending love to others. We cannot change who we truly are. We will always be loving spirit. Even in our darkest
hours, we can call upon it and feel it if we have the faith that this is so.
Our eternal Loving Spirit cannot
be destroyed, but we can fall asleep to the truth of who we are. Along humanity's way something happened. Many religions
refer to it a great mystery. It was the creation of a physical universe. It isn't eternal, it is finite. It has 3 limiting
dimensions, so we have to wear special suits called bodies to function here. Bodies cause us to feel separated from each other,
but in reality we are still connected. Many of us have proved that to ourselves when we're thinking of someone, and they
God became aware of the sense of separation in the world, and so created a loving spirit of holiness
to connect us all together. It has become translated as The Holy Spirit. Because a loving spiritual matrix holds us
together, when we register needs or desires the matrix responds.This can be for good or error. If we think we need drama as
a substitute for love, then that's what we'll get. If we truly want to live in our present body we can overcome stage
4 cancers or other challenges. What people need to remember is that our higher mind, and even our subconscious mind can trump
our conscious mind's casual thinking. We may think we want a new love in our lives, but the subconscious remembers the
last disasters which we haven't fully resolved yet, and so we don't register conviction in our request, and we don't
get the goods (which is at a higher level, what we want).
This "desire-matrix response-process"
is true for lessons we want to learn, experiences we want to feel, as well as objects or people we want in our lives. Therefore,
everyone who comes into our lives comes for a reason, and is a teacher. Some teachers stay for awhile, and need to learn the
same lessons, and we learn together, such as a spouse or actual teacher. Some come and go as soon as their presence is registered
in our minds. Everyone is a teacher for everyone else, serving under the great teacher, The Holy Spirit. If you get confused
about a lesson, ask the Holy Spirit to help you sort it out.
It is important to be humble when you encounter
others, and to be your best when in the presence of others. I learned more about mediation for children from watching 2 four-year
old girls on a playground than from any book I ever read.
Because this is a free will planet, we can resist
lessons, and they keep repeating. Why? Because the "higher us" wants us to get it so we can move on. Think about
it. If we want to learn to be loving, and to meet our true loving spirits, we may meet some folks who seem to model that for
us, so we can feel how nice it is in the presence of a loving being, but the acid test comes when we meet the most unlovable
person we can imagine, and we love them.
So the Holy Spirit has sent us this wonderful person so we can see how loving
we are, and All we want to do is get away as soon as possible. Our egos might even engage in a little tussle, which we will
most likely regret when we get home.
So we pray again to meet our true loving spirit, and add, and help us
be compassionate with people who are unlovable in this way. Now we are paying attention. Some "teacher" will demonstrate
the principles of what we are asking. And in time, the test comes. We get it!
We can love the most unlovable person
we can imagine, maybe by empathy, and compassion, but we know that we have a sparkling golden tool in our tool box of life's
journey. We can meet unlovableness with love.
And by the way, God doesn't create tests for us. We ask
for them. God love us. He created the Holy Spirit for us when we get lost, so we can wake up and remember Who we are. Everyone's
life lessons come in ways they've asked for them, and can recognize them. It helps no one to demonstrate ignorance by
assuming that their way is the only way. God created the Holy Spirit to respond to each of us uniquely at the level of understanding
and need. We do need people to demonstrate that the Holy Spirit is alive and well and helped them with their need, and can
also do the same for everyone who asks with conviction.
Be generous with your love, humor, compassion and
wisdom. Expect the best from your brothers and sisters. Be quick to apologize, be quick to say thank-you, and for your own
sake be quick to forgive. Holding grudges is only going to keep you down when you could be feeling good.
we can learn from each other, I invite you to send your life lessons to me, and I'll put them up on the life lesson page
as space allows. Life gives us the lesson in a gentle form first, but if we miss it, it will have to get our attention in
increasingly "louder" ways. I did ask for "mercy" one time. I was going through so much, I didn't
want any new lessons because I didn't feel finished with the ones I was working on. And I actually didn't get any
new ones that I was aware of. Our lives becomes wonderful adventures when we are aware that we are part of the designing process,
and that the master teacher adores us.
|You are loved!
