My Dad would say to me after I described a challenging work situation:
“Well at least you’re gaining experience”
He was right – I was leaning something new.
Maybe all experiences are to help us learn?
But to learn what?
To learn how to make our lives more secure, comfortable, exciting, varied, or entertaining?
What if all our experiences are designed to help us learn who we are in truth?
To remember our true identity?
Have you had a moment when you realised who you really are?
A moment of revelation?
I think we’ve all had that type of experience but then we seem to return to our old patterns of survival, of making our lives more comfortable.
Your moment of enlightenment showed you, that you’re perfect love.
You don’t need to learn who you are any more!
If that’s true then what’s the purpose of all future experiences once you’ve remembered or learned your true identity?
A Course of Love suggests that there is a new purpose for all your experiences.
Now experience is needed in time to aid your total acceptance of what you have learned.
A Course of Love. Book 3 Chapter 7:4
It only takes a moment to learn who you are, you need more time to accept your true self.
It’s helpful to remember:
You’re done with learning but not with acceptance.
Every experience is perfectly designed to allow you to accept your loving self.
You’re done with seeking and searching – you’ve already found yourself.
You haven’t completed accepted your true identity, but you will.
Acceptance of yourself is the purpose of the experience you’re having right now so don’t use it for any other purpose.
