When the student is ready the teacher must appear. But you can keep the fear, anger, worry and really Goofy Karma as long as you want to. It’s okay to keep beating yourself up and being miserable if it makes you somehow feel it’s what you deserve for being stupid or failing sometime in your past. But it’s your choice whether to keep it or dump it.
Whatever fear that you’re dealing with, whatever worry, whatever concern whatever need, whatever want, whatever doubt, whatever question you have in your mind, you will continue to keep it and it will continue to trouble you until you are ready to move on to a higher level of understanding and appreciation and most important, gratitude for the lesson you are needing to learn. You can continue to choose to be a victim.
The worries and fears along with the troubling situations that we stress and have concern over are extremely important. They are minnie “classes” that are given to us along the way interspersed with the larger and more traumatic failures, disasters and, when necessary, cataclysmic events, which occur in our lives forcing us to make one of two choices.
The first choice. We can see those events and circumstances through the eyes of victims and we can ask ourselves “why me? Why is life so hard and difficult? What did I do to deserve this? When we are told that every single experience that we have is part of an educational process that we have chosen, we say “wrong, I would never have done this to myself, intentionally. That is absolutely ridiculous.”
But, in truth, the struggles help us progress, grow, develop and become closer and closer to the magnificent human beings that we are destined to be,
We will choose to be continually miserable directing the questions of why the world is a ball of crap and I just landed on my head and continues to do so, why is life so hard? What did I do to deserve this? Why can’t I be happy too? We direct these questions to our friends, family, other victims, pretty much anyone that we can get to listen (and sympathize with our terrible lot in life) and even God. We become more and more discouraged and depressed because the answers don’t seem to come and we repeat the same problems over and over again becoming worse every time we face them.
Question: How long will these poor victims continue to ask “why me? Why is life always so bad?
Answer: Until they are miserable, in pain, unhappy or afraid enough to be “teachable”. When is that? When they are finally willing to stop looking at the problems they have been given, realize that those problems are not the issue, and ask for help in understanding what changes they need to make in themselves that the problems are trying to force them to make.
When they are finally willing to ask for help instead of stubbornly beating their head against the problems, the “teachers” will show them the path to the “changes needed in themselves”. The “problems” will disappear since they were never the issue. Addressing the problem as though it was what needs solving accomplishes nothing (Problems are the “outside” indicators of the need for a person to change “inside”. Once the person makes the necessary changes “inside”, the “problems” will evaporate as the illusions that they always were.) Focusing attention on solving problems rather than focusing attention on the outcome desired, will keep the problem in place never allowing the outcome, goal, to come about. (If you understand a very important law of achievement which states that ““it is impossible for a person to allow themselves to achieve anything greater than what their Self Image, picture they hold themselves, believes they deserve”, you will be on an endless recycling of disappointing experiences until you change who you “think” you are. Some folks refer to this as Karma.) All required for
Note: Goals written as achieved outcomes are the best way to prove “readiness” for teachers to appear.
Until next time, may you have the peaceful and charmed life that you deserve.
