Welcome fellow souls to « The Human Family Crash Course Series, » a new project collaborated together by empress2inspire.blog and dios-raw.com. Together we will be working on a different topic for each crash course; our eighth topic is focused on «Death». Each topic will have eight posts with posts on Mondays and Thursdays. We hope you enjoy our series and we look forward to knowing how our posts have inspired you!
“Every problem is a teacher from the University of Life.” ~ Mokokoma Mokhonoana
“Anything that you learn becomes your wealth, a wealth that cannot be taken away from you; whether you learn it in a building called school or in the school of life. To learn something new is a timeless pleasure and a valuable treasure. And not all things that you learn are taught to you, but many things that you learn you realize you have taught yourself.” ~ C. JoyBell C.
“Man makes plans . . . and God laughs.” ~ Michael Chabon
When our souls leave the Great All to become human, we contract with the universe to experience certain painful things on Earth that are not “spiritual” so we can learn what is spiritual (love, kindness, compassion, charity, etc.). At the macro level, the meaning of life is to learn — for the soul to learn how to make a human act like a better human.
One fundamentally important concept that I have learned on my journey here on earth is that we are in soul school, people’s souls are not all on the same level. Imagine children growing up, who are in different grade levels, so, too, are our souls, in fact our current life is like the grade level of our soul. As we ascend up in grade levels, we start getting tested, well and truly. We have things to learn and to practice, remember and teach. Those initiations become increasingly challenging as we continue progressing in grade levels; but we are always prepared for it because of what we learned in the previous grade. It is a steady progression with no third dimensional time frame, everything exists in the now simultaneously, therefore progression is beyond our concepts here on earth. And at the end of each year we have our final exams where we demonstrate what we’ve learned and nailed. These are big tests, but if we did our homework and paid attention, they are not as difficult to pass, even though they are not fun to take. We are never given tests that we cannot pass since our soul chose our pre-birth plan; the universe is working in our favour eternally. While we might look back at kids in kindergarten and think how much easier it would be to just play all day, we know that at the level we’ve achieved it would be agonizingly painfully boring, and we would choose to continue forward, even if it is really crucial to learn physics or calculus or Mongolian or to read literature and write book reports and essays. We choose to move forward, to pay attention, to learn, and to know that when the finals come, we will pass the tests. When we pass those final tests at every stage, we get to move on to a higher grade level, eventually reaching a point where we choose what to study, where to study and what our challenges will be. We may even decide to teach and play a multiplex of roles.
At points in our lives we wonder why life wasn’t as easy as someone else’s, or why someone else’s life seemed so difficult. From the meta-perspective of students of the universe, we can look at the person whose life is all fun and games, and see their soul level. Or we can look at the person whose life is filled with difficult challenges and see their soul level with a much greater compassionate respect than we might have had without this perspective. And we can also look at our own lives and realize that the challenges we are faced with are tests that we can surely continue to pass, and that the reason we have been given these tests is to demonstrate that we have learned, and then move on to a higher level.
Being in kindergarten is no “better” or “worse” than being in college or university, it is just a different learning experience. This perspective does not provide a justification for superiority or inferiority, it only serves to encourage the acceptance of the challenges we are faced with, the confidence to know that we shall overcome these, and the knowing that the challenge itself is a sign of progression. The “school” of our soul has many many grades and many many teachers. The teachers are all around you, you are the teacher; the learning is definitely worth the results. May you triumph in all of your tests soul friends and ascend home to Source.
