We often wonder why we have to endure hardships. Many times people lose
faith in God because they believe that if there was a loving God he
would make everything perfect and life would be free of pain and
suffering. Many would like to be able to sit around, eat grapes and sing
kumbaya all day long.
It is only human nature to look for the easy way out and blame our
problems on some one else or even God.. However, blaming someone else
for our misfortunes and hardships is not only counterproductive but can
actually delay our advancement toward what ever goals we have in life.
We were all put here on school house earth to learn and grow spiritually.
This being the case our soul needs to experience all things in order to
reach it’s highest potential. We cannot grow if someone else,
including God is doing everything for us.
It isn’t God’s job to protect us from all of life’s hardships and trials.
God’s job is to guide us through our challenges so we may reach the end
of our life smarter wiser and more in touch with the God Source.
There is no such thing as social justice, our main objective in reincarnating
on planet earth is to become perfect in our relationship with our God.
That is how perfection is obtained, perfection has nothing to do with
our physical attributes, abilities or characteristics.
In most cases, we didn’t come to earth to enjoy the good life, and have
God or others provide everything to us, our reason for existing is to
open the channel of communication with the Supreme Being thereby walking
in the path to enlightenment. Once that channel is open and remains
open, then it is possible to enjoy the fruits of our labors to the
highest good of all concerned.
It is through hardship we learn enlightenment, once enlightenment is
achieved hardship disappears from our lives. that is not to say trials
and challenges no longer enter our lives, it just means we learn to deal
and solve them in a more positive way. We realize challenges are a
necessary part of life, we encounter them to learn and evolve where
they no longer have a major impact on our lives.
In fact, many times we welcome the challenges of life and look at every
circumstance in life as a positive event and when it passes we reflect
on what the life experience taught us and are then willing to move onto
the next challenge.
