The Lesson of Life

Hey, hey...

It's Sunday...

So, happy Sunday...

He, he...

Do you know what the lesson of life is?

The lesson of life is... when we are suffering and struggling, we turn to God for comfort and strength. When we turn to God, He shows us He's real.

That's the lesson!

If we suffer, and if we struggle over, and over, then turn to God over, and over, sooner or later we discover that we can turn to Him at all times. 

When we turn to Him at all times the comfort and strength for life comes. When the comfort and strength becomes a part of our everyday living, life is filled with ease and grace.

This ease and grace makes way for a feeling, and knowing of the unconditional love God has for us. Soon after, the human training of conditional love falls away, and we can know, and stand in a place connected to God, in perfect love without fear.

The fear I am talking about is anger, anxiety, depression, and despair. It may be hard for some people to believe that these negative emotions fall away. The point is, a person really has to learn for his or herself by turning to God regularly, not just on Sunday, or just when stuff hits the fan, if you get my meaning.

Some people may never learn this lesson in this lifetime. There are people who go to church every Sunday and are taught this every week, but do not live it. 

We can be taught this lesson, and we can know it intellectually but, until we live it, we will continue in our suffering and struggling.

To know deep down in the soul that God is real, is to believe it, and behave as though one believes it. This is faithfulness and fearlessness in practice.

The above average person resides in a spiritual state of being, connected to God. 

The average person, in my humble opinion, cannot be above average through human behavior. Meaning, lack of spiritual nature.

I do not believe in human nature, I only believe in human conditioning versus spiritual nature. 

Human conditioning teaches us about conditional love, and searching for happiness from others, which creates chaos rather than control.

Spiritual nature is the fruit of the spirit, and is who we really are, some of us just forget. This spiritual nature, our nature, allows us to be connected to God, with the state of confidence, and poise, and undaunted, and unfazed by the world around us.

"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law." ~ Galatians 5:22-23, Holy Bible, KJV

We really are love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, and temperance. 

Look at any child, and you will see that they are the fruit of the spirit. We all have been a child, and so we all are spiritual first. You can also see that life teaches, and trains all of us to be human, as compared below.

Spiritual Nature versus Human Training

Perfect love versus conditional love.

Joy versus misery.

Peace versus disturbance.

Longsuffering versus instant gratification.

Gentleness versus abrasiveness.

Goodness versus meanness.

Faith versus fear.

Meekness versus insecurity.

Temperance versus addiction.

The lesson of life is to constantly turn to God, so we may know He is real, and He will lead us and guide us back to remembering and returning to who we are.

If you are having a hard time, in life, and are struggling to find relief, I believe, with all my mind, body, and soul, if you turn to God, unceasingly, you will find relief. 

Always!

This relief is a practice into realization, as often as you seek it. Keeping reaching and this comfort comes with every search.

That's the lesson.

God has given us free agency, and authority to choose, which leads to our power, which leads to knowing our true value and worth comes from God, and within our own mind, not from anything outside of us.

"But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." ~ Matthew 6:33, Holy Bible, KJV

That's the lesson my dear, caring, kind, reader...

If you'd like to practice this lesson, into permanence, read this post first thing in the morning, and again last thing in the evening. Furthermore, contemplate it, focus on it, and practice it by turning to God. 

Reconditioning and retraining can be done by reminding, and repetition, which are the great ways of learning.

If you keep God at the forefront of your mind, I believe, you will find much relief, and much purpose.

We are but infants in our spirituality if we are not receiving guidance and inspiration from God, and we are not talking and walking with God.

And if that is not enough for you to do this week, may I suggest you learn to meditate, if you don't already. Quieting the mind is one of the greatest paths to free agency of thought and governing thy mood. ~wink~

"Be still and know that I am God." ~ Psalm 46:10, Holy Bible

The quiet mind gives respite from the worry of life, and develops a listening way.

The belief, or thought, is the cause, and the emotion is the effect. I do believe that is the law of cause and effect.

You're doing really good, and you're going to be just fine.

God bless you my dear sweet friend...

Speak soon...
