Purpose…Our Reason on Earth

Purpose…Our Reason on Earth

‘The road is long, not always straight forward,
and what seems certainty can evaporate,
but what is certain is the learning for a soul,
the pain and anguish just a means to an end.’

What we see in life is the pain and anguish of misfortune. But we are as a leaf floating in a turbulent ocean, floating yet unable to make our way anywhere. We are at the mercy of life, its flow, its directions and experiences. The sooner we surrender to this process, the better, because resistance is futile and just prolongs the learning we so need. Pain is the opportunity to understand, to realise what lessons are offered in its name, and refusing to see out of stubbornness just ensures more pain and chaos as a result.

A calm and accepting mind changes any circumstance, gives reason for accepting the necessary lessons associated, and makes the experience far less painful. Life doesn’t want to torture us, we do that to ourselves, very well. It just wants us to learn and find better ways to think and live and to elevate our thoughts to more positive and fruitful states. Our consciousness is minimal, and on this physical earth bound to much of the ego and physical pleasures and experience. But there are far greater experiences for those willing to lay down their pre-conceived ideas and be open to higher truths.

Some may say that ‘God’ or some deity is cruel as many life’s suffer intolerable lives due to circumstances of poverty, war or famine, but the same rules apply. Souls need certain circumstances and experiences to learn and to transcend in order to ascend in a spiritual sense. Our judgement of these so-perceived inequities is, in the end, just ignorance. This life is our learning, our opportunity to understand the process of life. In doing so we find a serenity of mind, a calm resolve in how we approach people and our own experiences, as well as an open mind to glean truths as they become apparent.

    Excellent life lesson, Tony. It encourages me to look within. Pain and suffering is part of our life, a necessary learning experience. I would rather feel pain than to feel nothing. To be oblivious or unaware of needed lessons stagnates life and the soul. To feel pain, to seek and know the reason for it, is to learn and grow mentally and spiritually. I am feeling the pain of my manager leaving his position for better rewards and his intended path which is good for him and I wish him all the best – yet I feel the pain of loss. However, I do see I will learn and grow from this, for I have become too dependent on him, too comfortable with my responsibilities and too contained. The pain is a life lesson to encourage me to be more independent and trust my skills and potential. Thank you for sharing this valuable lesson, I appreciate it.

      Thanks Phyllis, glad it rang true with you. Many of our problems stem from our unwillingness to change and also to not learn from the changes around us. Take care.

    Glad it did Rasma, we all need to be reminded of the simple truths, so easy to forget when we are in the middle of our chaotic lives, and of those close to us. Take care.
