You are enrolled in a full-time school called "life". Each day in this school
you will have the opportunity to learn lessons. You may like the lessons or hate
them, but you have designed them as part of your curriculum.
Why are you here? What is your purpose? Humans have sought to discover the
meaning of life for a very long time. What we and our ancestors have overlooked,
however, is the "there is no one answer". The meaning of life is different for
Each person has his or her own purpose and distinct path, unique and separate
from anyone else's. As you travel your life path, you will be presented with
numerous lessons that you will need to learn in order to fulfill that purpose.
The lessons you are presented with are specific to you; learning these lessons
is the key to discovering and fulfilling the meaning and relevance of your own
As you travel through your lifetime, you may encounter challenging lessons
that others don't have to face, while other spend years struggling with
challenges that you don't need to deal with. You may never know why you are
blessed with a wonderful marriage, while your friends suffer through bitter
arguments and painful divorces, just as you cannot be sure why you struggle
financially while your peers enjoy abundance. The only thing you can count on
for certain is that you will be presented with all the lessons that you
specifically need to learn; whether you choose to learn them or not is entirely
up to you.
The challenge here, therefore, is to align yourself with your own unique path
by learning individual lessons. This is one of the most difficult challenges you
will be faced with in your lifetime, as sometimes your path will be radically
different from others. But, remember, don't compare your path to the people
around you and focus on the disparity between their lessons and yours. You need
to remember that you will only be faced with lessons that you are capable of
learning and are specific to your own growth.
This process may not be easy, but the rewards are well worth the struggle.
