Do you see life in stages? Do you recognize life’s lessons?

What stage are you at?

Now let’s do that again, without any type of judgement. Let’s just note the facts and it doesn’t matter if they are good or bad, right or wrong.

It feels different looking at life that way, doesn’t it!

What have you learned over the past year and how has it affected you? Do you feel stronger? Are you more in touch?

The inner self has great resilience. At times, we may believe that we are regressing in the physical world, but in reality, our outer personality may be dormant yet we are strengthening our inner core.

We are specifically referring to this inner core. Our soul of higher self is the foundation of who we are and can always be relied upon.

When we suggest a review, we are referring to is the individual that we are building throughout the process of this life. This “inner self” we refer to (not the soul) is the outer layers of the onion, if you will, that we are currently growing (but remember this is not the thinking mind either). The inner self is not the mind, as thoughts are generated through expectation or past experience. The inner self is the one that has been a spectator for all of these life experiences and is more adept at handling life’s lessons than our responsive, mental self.

If you are currently feeling somewhat lost and that life is being rough-handed and that life is seemingly pulling you in all different directions, know that the fog will lift and the grip will release. That lost part is only the thinking mind. The warmth of the light will eventually burn off the fog and you will see clearly again. You will gain in resilience from your experiences as that is what they are, lessons to grow from not hurdles to keep you down.

These trials and tribulations strengthen our resolve.... our belief in one’s self as we learn to overcome. Through these harder lessons we gain momentum and we grow. We are constantly learning through life’s experience and growth occurs through these experiences. Without life lessons, we would stagnate.

Life is full of twists and turns, and we will learn to ride the wave. Sometimes life moves along almost perfectly and other times life can be like a volcano either waiting to erupt or vigorously spewing lava. Remember these times are beneficial. Our thoughts about these experiences are what determine how we react to them and what affect they will have on us. If we focus on the challenging parts of the lesson, the lesson will be extremely difficult. If we focus on the value of these lessons, the experience will be beneficial.

The choice is ours. We can do a professional job using professional tools or we can do an amateur job and ignore the tools at hand. The more we practice with the tools available, the more precise we become applying them.

Many of these life experiences have been put in place for our greater good and we are equipped to deal with these experiences either on our own or with help when we ask for assistance. We are never at the mercy of life, but we are at the mercy of our thoughts. Be wary of negative thoughts. They have no real benefit whatsoever.

Live in the moment and keep reminding yourself of this so that it becomes second nature. The ego mind is silenced when we are in the moment and through that silence, we can focus on what is important.

Can we take a moment to remind ourselves of the blessings that have come, the blessings that are bestowed upon us regularly in our day-to-day lives?

Pay heed to how life is good in so many different ways. Stay focused on these things so that you can draw more of the same your way.
