PONDER on THIS for Tuesday, August 16th, 2011 by Cherie Carter-Scott, Ph.D. in IF LIFE IS A GAME THESE ARE THE RULES

“Your time here on Earth is brief. Time passes and things change. You have options and choices in which to make your wishes, dreams, and goals become reality. When you ask yourself, “Why am I here?” or “Why is this happening to me?” or “What’s it all about?” Turn to your spiritual primer. Ask yourself, “What is the lesson?” If you hear a defensive reactions using the words “never” or “always” in your response, you haven’t yet learned the lesson. Next, go a little deeper and ask, What is there for me to learn from this experience?

Each time you view your circumstances as possessing value, regardless of the apparent confusion or hardship, you grow. Your personal evolution will depend on how readily you embrace your lessons and integrate them into your life. Remember, the only consequence for resisting lessons, is that they will keep repeating themselves until you learn them. When you have learned a lesson, you will always be tested. When the lesson is learned, the test will be easily passed and you then move on to more complex and challenging ones.”
