Once You Get the Lesson you don't need the experience.
Saturday, March 31, 2007
This is from Life's Missing Instruction Manual by Joe Vitale. "Once you ge the lesson of any experience, you don't need to repeat the experience. Until you get the lesson, you will continue to recreate the eperience, escalating i pain, until you get the lesson. In other words, notice that people seem to keep having the same problem. One preson may get married seven times. One person may always struggle with money. Another person may have the same health issue reoccur. None of these are predestined or set it stone. Get the lesson the experiece is offering you and the experience will leave. Pay attention to your lessons".
I have always believed this. In fact, it was why I refused to commit suicide. being concerned that there is any chance (even a teeny ensy itsy bitsy chance) that reincarnation existed,I didn't want to kill my self before i got whatever lessons i was suppose to learn because they could be worse the next time around. But of course, it does't have to be that drastic It is also one of the reasons I won't leave my less than ideal relationship. Because I know that until I figure it out I will just find someone the same and we will repeat the same patterns. I might as well figure it out here and then we can grow together. (i don't have a bad relationship-it just isn't perfect-if it were abusive or hurtful, then I would get out because under no circumstances should you remain in a relationship like that).
What if you could "get the lesson" the first time, or even the second or third? Wouldn't it be great? Because then you don't have to recreate the experiences because you don't need to learn the lesson. So how do you do that? Well, I'm no expert here that is for sure. But what I do know is that you can't resist it (what you resist persists) and that you have to be willing to embrace it and explore it without fear.
HMMM, now if I could only live this-all the time. What could I accomplish? What might open up to me that I can't even imagine now. I know that in the past 6 weeks happiness, love and joy have opened up to me so apparantly, i'm finally getting some of my lessons. I have never, in my memory experienced any of those things. It took 37 years, but I made it. I am grateful it didn't take 67. Now I am more determined than ever to "get my lesson" and to grow.
Life is good. you know, i always hated those t shirt. I thought, how stupid is that-these people are walking around in denial and announcing it to everyone. Never in my wildest dreams did I think that life could be good for anyone but Oprah and Wayne Dyer. Silly me, I know it doesn't even make sense logically. But the depressed mind isn't a logical mind, even though it tries to convince you it is.
I wish you all well on your journey,
