Doesn't It Feel Good....

Just to be alive? Well considering the alternative I would think that most people felt that way. Sometimes I get in a mood where I feel sorry for myself.That seems kind of useless when I'm living the life I created. Then I look around me and see people who are so much worse off and it makes all my petty complaints seem so minor. We've been talking lately (Russell and I) about life lessons and we both believe that when we come to this Earth we are here to learn something. We believe we learn something in each lifetime. In this lifetime I believe I am to learn trust. Maybe compassion is another thing I'm supposed to learn but I think I've got that one covered. :) Russell thinks he is here to learn tolerance. Considering what he has gone through in this life, I tend to agree with him. So think about it. What are you here to learn? What comes to mind?

  1. I think perhaps I'm here to learn why I am here.

    That might sound a little glib - but its not meant to be.

    I could use courses in patience, tolerance, compassion, and love - but what I would like more than anything is to know ... why? and what is "this" (the life on earth) all about?

  2. I don't know, Barb. I know I should be learning something. I'm in one of those really yukky moods today. Got my OK drivers license and registered to vote. Now trying to get the car insurance for OK and the car tag. Tired of all this falderol. Maybe I'm supposed to be learning patience. Maybe I'm just not a good pupil! D

    PS But hope all is well in your world. Sounds like you are fine!

  3. Hey there, Now this is a good contemplation isnt it!? I will have to ponder that one for sure because I have never honestly asked myself this question...

    you are certainly right about one thing, we never have to look far to find someone else that is in worse shape than we are.


    Hope things are good in Oklahoma!

  4. Very interesting question.

    I think I'm here to learn the same lesson as Russel... Tolerance!

  5. Oh I absolutely agree that we are hear to learn soul lessons!! Mine have to do with faith or trust--and that is entwined in a fear of losing the roof over my head. Learning not to be judgmental of others--AND with myself. Forgiveness! And that is tangled up in being positive in the face of negatives. And probably both of those are subcatagories in being fearless. To have so much faith that you can be positive all the time and fearless--beyond worrying over your own life. Inner peace. Hard to put into words. I've made progress, but if I understood it all I wouldn't still be here--ROFL! :):) No really--I think I would always ask to come back here. I love earth--good and bad--black and white--that is what this place is all about. We can learn here BECAUSE of the contrasts. The greatest gift for me would be to eventually come back as a spirit guide or guardian. Brings tears to my eyes just to think of what an honor that would be. :):)
