When we do finally learn the lesson, it isn’t that the lesson wasn’t always there, but that somehow we had been looking somewhere else. All of our lessons are never not evident… what’s missing is something in us that is able to perceive these lessons.
The reason we don’t see the lesson is what we need to understand. We have to ask, “What’s obscuring truth? What’s obscuring God? What’s keeping me from what I need to learn about myself?” Of course, the reason we don’t see the lessons that life has for us is because we’re too busy telling life what we want from it!
Find out from life what it’s trying to teach you. There is something inside of you that’s in perfect inner relationship with life. You can turn to it anytime you want to. There’s never a moment where it isn’t present and from whose vantage point you can view life as opposed to the myopic way you are presently seeing it.
All of the individual lessons that are awaiting you in your life are evident right now. Why not have a life whose simple purpose is day after day to be able to hear and see more of that principal lesson that life is trying to teach you about what you already have within you?
