“Life will give you whatever experience is most helpful for the evolution of your consciousness. How do you know this is the experience you need? Because this is the experience you are having at this moment.” (Oneness With All Life) – Eckhart Tolle
I wholeheartedly agree with this! It may be hard to understand and to see this when you are in the middle of something happening, but God never gives us more than we can handle!
If we learn from these “undesirable” experiences we move on, however, if we do not accept, learn and keep resisting life and resisting our reality, then we will be faced with more challenges (and they are only challenges if that is how we perceive them).
Resistance creates resistance. When I accept what is happening – I can move-on, I end the “war” and start living through the experience and not against it.
This is not easy and I talked a lot about this on my old blog. One of my most favorite quotes ever:
“We’re in a free fall into future. We don’t know where we’re going. Things are changing so fast. And always when you’re going through a long tunnel, anxiety comes along. But all you have to do to transform your hell into a paradise is to turn your fall into a voluntary act. It’s a very interesting shift of perspective . . . Joyfully participate in the sorrows of the world and everything changes.” – Joseph Campbell
and another one 🙂
“If you are falling….dive.” – Joseph Campbell
To your health,
