The Purpose Of Our Life Experiences

The Purpose Of Our Life Experiences

Everyone have a place in the grand scheme of life. If you are feeling alone and left out with nowhere to go, know that you are exactly where you are meant to be.

What this means is that we have brought it upon ourself. Wherever we are or whatever we are experiencing is the direct result of the choices and decisions we made in the past.

But things of the past have gone. We should not regret it. What is more important now is knowing that we are the arbitrator of our life and we can decide what we want to do next.

Knowing the fact that whatever we do has its consequences allows us to be careful with what we are doing and our choices. It is a good thing but life is meant to be experienced because experience means learning.

As we learn, we grow and as we grow, we discover more and more the principles of life and with that we know what works and what doesn’t. In the end, we learn how to negotiate the rest of life easily through wise choices.

So what does all these painful life experiences means? It means there is something for us to learn (Remember, life teaches through experience?). Instead of pointing our finger towards someone or blaming others about our life experiences and complaining to God about your misfortune, it is more appropriate if you can ask yourself, “What is it God is trying to teach me through this situation? What is it I am suppose to learn?”

Usually we already have the answer. We will feel it strongly. Sometimes we just ignore it. Yet, life won’t give up on us. The answer do come in other ways. Sometimes it comes through someone else. It can be a simple instruction like, “hey, you can do this” or”hey why don’t you do that”. Often this is how help comes. If your ego is stronger than humility, than the answer just flies us by in the air.

So being open hearted and humble is important to know the answers to life questions. It is okay to ask for help in the things you don’t know. It’s good to seek help in times of trouble or crisis but whatever advice someone is giving, you have to weigh it and make up your own mind. You have to decide for yourself because it’s your life.

Today you have a choice to choose the kind of life you want to have knowing that it comes with responsibility too. When you have learned to take self responsibility for your own life, than you have learned something. It shows our spiritual maturity and that is the purpose of all these life experiences; to give us spiritual maturity.

P/s. Food for thought: Many people think there are two ways to life, true, but the only way that matters is the way of love.

Our uniqueness, our individuality, and our life experience molds us into fascinating beings. I hope we can embrace that. I pray we may all challenge ourselves to delve into the deepest resources of our hearts to cultivate an atmosphere of understanding, acceptance, tolerance, and compassion. We are all in this life together. – Linda Thompson
