Earth is a planet we love to hate. Not because there’s anything wrong with this celestial object but because life on Earth is quite difficult. Even if you are of the lucky ones that are blessed to enjoy a happy and easy life, still, some aspects of it are tough to deal with.
Many believe that we are here for a reason and we are supposed to find out what that reason is during our lifetime. Additionally, we are expected to learn from this material world and work with our selves towards higher levels of consciousness.
What a complicated term to understand. One can easily say that consciousness is to be aware of things. Of our environment and ourselves. That’s not wrong but consciousness is not just that. You can call it perception, or mindfulness or realisation or higher self-etc. But, do we really know what consciousness is? How certain are we of our reality? Who can claim they know the secrets of the human mind? We don’t even know our origins and we can’t make up our minds what to do with our lives.
Us humans are blessed and cursed at the same time but again that is not to be explored here. What I am trying to say is since we are going through a lot of suffering anyway, it is worth to find out what did we learn out of it.
Whatever happens in life, good or bad things, we should seek for the lesson behind them. I believe that if we do not get the message, then those things will repeat themselves until we get it right. When we finally get it, then life will bring new challenges (not necessarily bad ones) just so we can carry on learning. And when we learn all it is for us to learn, then we should be ready to go on to the next levels. The levels of the afterlife and of the higher consciousness.
So, here is a non-exhaustive list of the things I’ve learned in life so far. I am sure you will find lots to relate with and some will be new to you. Feel free to leave your comments below and let’s benefit from each other’s realizations:
