When times are difficult, we automatically ask ourselves “What have I done wrong?” and “What have I done to deserve this?”
… and often the answer is… nothing.
So then, we default to “How did this happen?’ and “Who’s fault is it?”
… and that’s when our filters kick in.
The filters that we see the world through.
The filters created by childhood experience.
The filters created by past-life experience.
The filters created by our soul purpose.
And it creates conflict… internal conflict, and external conflict. It gets messy. It gets painful. This is personality-based life.
So what is the alternative?
A soul-based life assumes there is a deeper meaning to testing times. We reassure ourselves that “I am doing nothing wrong” (unless you are then please do take steps to change it) and ask ourselves “What am I learning?”
And we are patient with ourselves… because sometimes the answers take time.
