I Sometimes feel like we ought to know more about who we are or how to live. We may even chastise ourselves for making the same mistakes. But without those mistakes we would never learn or grow. And that is why we are here, our being born is that we are here to observe, learn, and grow.
Accompanying this is a built-in guarantee that there will be mistakes along the way. And while it is only natural that we may sometimes become overwhelmed, especially when the lessons keep coming, it is important to remember to be gentle with yourself too..
I know I all too often blame myself, and feel guilt and remorse over a harsh word or jibe but I have to remember we are all human, here for the human experience of learning along the way.. Some lessons are harsh and hard, while others can be joyful and enlightening.. But learning to understand yourself and your world is an ongoing and active process where the journey is all important as we head for that final destination.
I gave a talk this weekend to around 35 people at a Centre I attend, and I asked them what had they packed in their suitcases for their greatest journey? Some looked a little perplexed.. As I said well now when you go on holiday you pack your tooth-brush, clothes and bathing costume don’t you?.. and I got a few nods..
And then I asked them, ‘what do we take with us on that ultimate journey when we cross over the divide into the next realm of existence?’ Some said ‘nothing’, ‘we come in with nothing and we go out with nothing’..
‘Arrh’ I said, ‘that is where you are wrong, For we take with us our Good intent, we take with us our love, our memories, our kindness our compassion.. or we take with us the bitterness, anger, hate and loneliness.. it’s up to us what we pack within our hearts and souls as to what we take with us..’
And I told them a story.. One I have told here before.. but one I will share again… Just click the link below I wrote this in 2008..A True Story!…
Love and Blessings..
