We are here to learn. I’m sure of that
All our relationships and all the situations we end up in are challenges in following one’s heart and one’s inner voice – and love. We have to learn both big and small things, and there are no coincidences. Life is a school and until you pass, you have to repeat the grade. This is both in relationships with other people and in the relationship to ourselves and our patterns. We simply do not move forward in life and the life process until we go through our challenges instead of bypassing them.
We all come into life with problems to be solved and patterns to be broken. The purpose is precisely to make love unite soul and body – to find out that the treasure is hidden inside you and that the treasure is the unconditional love. To yourself and everyone else. My friend Lars Muhl says: “The treasure is inside you, so there is no point in looking outside.”
Living in unconditional love and in harmony with the universe sounds easier than it is. It’s not only hard, it’s really hard. A good first step is the awareness that we are in school here on earth. It is so easy to get engrossed in all that is going on in the world (rightly so!) that we forget who we are, why we are here, and where we are going. We forget the overall task and get lost in small everyday dramas. But if we are aware that we are here to learn, it becomes easier to take steps every day, confident that we become wiser and more whole by taking it all with us, both the good and the bad.
Love also says no sometimes and this is important to remember. Putting your foot down or saying no can be just as much an act of love as the opposite so listen to your heart.
