I don’t think there is anyone who has never faced challenges, whether they were self-imposed or triggered by something or someone outside – actually, they are always self-imposed, but we’ll get to that later. Also, a challenge to me does not equal a challenge to you. If I’ve ordered a meal and it’s only lukewarm when it’s served, I can make a big drama out of it, politely ask for it to be warmed up, or I can just think, “So what.” A problem is only a problem if I call it a problem. It’s subjective. So, when something is triggered in me to create the image of a problem, it always has to do with me.
I suggest that you listen to this beautiful piece of music while you read on:
Why do things bother me that don’t bother you? Because it shows me what I need to work on. Certain traits that arise in me in certain situations are a sign that something in me needs to be resolved. Now, I can try to excuse my feelings with the poor quality of the food and blame the waiter or the cook for me being upset. Or I can even thank them (inwardly) for showing me that there is something in me that causes such aggressive reactions – which already contributes to the resolution. This is, of course, a very simple example. There can be very deep feelings of frustration, despair, depression, anxiety, sadness, anger, betrayal, hatred lying dormant within one, just waiting for the right moment to resurface. Is this a curse or a punishment? Not at all! It is a natural consequence to learn from the laws of duality. Unfortunately, we learn best and fastest from pain. It is a sign of negative energies that we are holding on to. Since our true nature is well-being, all negative energies will cause pain in us. It shows what we are not or what does not belong to us.
Let’s look at the many reasons we are here? We want to experience life with all senses. We want to make things visible and manifest a part of ourselves. We want to play different roles for ourselves but also for others. But the main reason that lies beneath this all is: We want to remember the feeling of who we are. Therefore, we need the oppositions that we can find in this world. We need to play the role of the bad guy and maybe create karma. We need to fall into the dark abyss. We need to experience who we are definitely not, to recognize the pureness of light and love that we are. We need to forget who we are to have the full experience of revealing piece by piece of our real being.
It is not the role of the victim that we have to come over, but the role of the perpetrator. In each incarnation, we take something into our programs to work through some of the dark things we did in a previous incarnation. Life provides us with situations that put us in the opposite role (the victim) to experience the other side. Blockages, feelings within us that scare us, meeting similar people over and over again, or situations that bring out the worst in us are all signposts. It makes no sense to blame others or circumstances for how we feel. It is our system that catches the impulse that pushes the buttons of our program. The problem – the pain within us – already carries the solution. But we have to dare to look. It’s not fun to face the darkness, but once you do, you will see that on the other side shines a bright light. On the other side waits forgiveness – forgiveness that you give yourself. Whatever scary feelings may surround you now, they are not who you are but a tool to find exactly that out. The worst thing that can happen is salvation.
Remember that every act of kindness comes back to you as well.
Whatever good you experience shows what beautiful things you must have done.
So why not start right now to create a future in which you want to find yourself?
In Love and Light
