There are different levels of learning, and we must learn some of them in the flesh. We must feel the pain. When you’re a spirit you feel no pain. It is a period of renewal. Your Soul is being renewed. When you’re in a physical state in the flesh, you can feel pain; you can hurt. In spiritual form, you do not feel. There is no happiness, a sense of well-being. But it’s a renewal period for… us. The interaction between people in the spiritual form is different. When you are in a physical state… you can experience relationships.
After our birth in the physical state, our main source of learning is through relationships. Through the joy and pain of interaction with other people, we progress on our spiritual paths in order to learn about love from all sides. Relationships are a living laboratory, a field test to determine how we are doing, whether our lessons have been learned, to discover how close we are to our pre-determined life plan. In relationships, our emotions are evoked, and we react. Have we learn to turn the other cheek, or do we retaliate with violence? Do we reach out to others with understanding, love, and compassion, or do we react with fear, selfishness, or rejection? Without relationships we would not know; we would not test our progress. They are wonderful but difficult opportunities to learn.
We are here in a physical state in order to learn and grow. We learn traits and qualities such as love, non-violence, compassion, charity, faith, hope, forgiveness, understanding, and awareness. We must unlearn negative traits and qualities, including fear, anger, hatred, violence, greed, pride, lust, selfishness, and prejudice.
It is primarily through relationships that we learn these lessons.
More learning can occur when there are many obstacles than when there are few or none. A life with difficult relationships, filled with obstacles and losses, presents the most opportunity for our Soul’s growth. You may have chosen the more difficult life so that you could accelerate your spiritual progress.
Sometimes a negative event, such as losing a job, maybe the hand opening the door to a much better opportunity. We should not grieve prematurely. Destiny may need a little more time to weave its intricate tapestry. In addition to pain and hardship, there is also love and joy in ecstasy in this world. We are here to be in community, learning about love by being amidst other human beings who are on the same path, learning the same lessons. Love is not an intellectual process but rather a dynamic energy flowing into and through us at all times, whether we are aware of it or not. We must learn to receive love as well as give. Only in community, only in relationships, only in service can we truly understand the all-encompassing energy of love.
