The Experience Of A Lifetime
WE’RE HERE TO EXPERIENCE being physical by living countless successive lifetimes as a human being. Within these life experiences we choose to undergo many situations, both positive and negative, where our aim is to learn the lessons that are presented to us, if we fail, no problem, they will be included in our next incarnation.
From these experiences, we learn, grow and mature as a human being, but more importantly, as a Spiritual Being. This is a never-ending quest for perfection. The trick is to learn from the challenges that confront us.
There is a strict disciplinary code that we must adhere to. Like a school teacher disciplines children, our disciplinary teacher in the school of life is known as Karma or Cause and Effect, an unbreakable law of the cosmos.
“Every thought, every action that you put out into the world has a consequence
that will come back at you, either in this life, or in a life to come.”
The Golden Rule is: ‘Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.’ How you treat other people will be returned to you in kind. The future can and does change depending on our actions/reactions to life’s challenges. Every decision we make slightly alters our pathway through life.
“Nothing ever goes away until it teaches us what we need to know.” ~ Pema Chodron
Any attitude that doesn’t contain within it, love, compassion and understanding retards our growth. Any attitude that does contain those attributes advances our growth. Every day, we are confronted with decisions to either be friendly or unfriendly to someone.
The consequences of how we respond, dire or not, falls back heavily on our own shoulders. We cannot do anything to free ourselves from karma, but with free will, in our every action and reaction, we always have a choice.
Be aware before you are about to hurt, chastise, ridicule, abuse or be unkind to someone. For the way you are about to treat them, could in time, impose a dreadful penalty upon yourself in this lifetime or a future lifetime…
Dan’s Quote: “How people treat you is their karma… how you react is yours.”
