There are many paths we can choose to navigate this life and learning lessons is just one of them.
A wise woman told me many years ago to stop saying that I was learning because, in that way, I was setting up more and more lessons for myself. When I stopped doing that, life flowed much more easily. I had chosen a different path. It didn’t mean I became ignorant or that I didn’t uncover and discover more about the Universe and how we operate within it, but I stopped setting up lessons for myself. It was a huge relief.
There are many paths we can choose to traverse this lifetime. The preferred path and the one recommended by my guidance, is joy. We will always get to where we’re going, it’s the journey that determines whether it’s fun and joyous or paved with challenges and lessons. The journey represents our life. I chose the path of joy.
Lessons are often presented through challenges, while expansion is presented through opportunity. There is no wrong path, only paths we choose and they all get us to where we are going.
Why Is Setting Up Lessons Innate?
It’s a part of not knowing who we really are. We have been taught that there is an almighty Being that is omnipresent and in comparison we are small and insignificant. From that beginning, we climb our way into believing that maybe, if we are the chosen one, we can make a difference. If not in the whole world, maybe in our own lives. We are taught that the Universe doesn’t revolve around us and that we’re only as good as being nice affords us. In a nutshell, we are inferior as human beings, there to be manipulated at the will of a God or Deity.
It’s no wonder that we feel we must keep learning. With that belief as our background, it’s a wonder we become anything that feels like worthiness and love.
But it’s all a scam. It’s one of the biggest scams in history. These beliefs weren’t taught to us for our own higher good. They weren’t instilled so that we could be invincible. Instead, they were created because, as a society, we were much easier to control. As children, we were much more likely to be compliant if we thought our parents were superior.
We Were Born Divine Beings
In fact, we were born in the essence of Divine Spirit. We are not just a part of spirit but we are an extension of spirit. Just like when you remove a cup of water from the ocean, you don’t have a part of the ocean. You actually have the whole ocean, in all its essence, just a smaller size. We have the amazing ability to create our lives in any fashion we choose. From moulding the clay to sculpting the details and then erasing and beginning again if we find ourselves with a sculpture we don’t like. This is how the Universe responds and revolves around us. It actually responds to every thought and request we make, whether wanted or not.
Every person has their own clay to mould and no two sculptures will be the same, no matter how much we try to make others mould in the same way we do. Each mark we make in the clay is a step down our own path of life and each has their own set of consequences. It’s a natural part of the journey of life. We don’t ever need to be learning as we are in a continual process of taking a step, discovering, refining and taking the next step forward. It is the natural process of expansion.
Learning Lessons Makes Us Stuck
When we feel we need to learn more, we are setting up more and more lessons for ourselves. So we often get stuck in noticing the consequences. Rather than consequences becoming a part of the sequence of expansion, the lesson becomes the focus, which then attracts more and more lessons, just like it. This isn’t because we were bad or a slow learner, or even need to know more. It’s because of our focus. Whatever we focus on, we create more of. So when we focus on the lesson (which is usually something unwanted), we create more lessons that become bigger and bigger.
It’s like putting a rocky detour in our own path. Sure we can navigate it by climbing or walking around it on the rocky ledge if we want to, but it’s not necessary. There is another path. An easier way of traversing life.
Lessons Delay The Manifestation Of Our Dreams
Lessons also delay our dreams from becoming a reality. Dreams don’t manifest due to timing. They manifest because we have expanded to a place that matches the dream. When we have dreams that we ponder and give birth to, they became their own thought form. They have their own thoughts and expand and grow as we do. That’s why the dream no longer looks the same as the one we gave birth to. In essence, it’s grown up and sometimes becomes hardly recognisable, in a wonderful way. So, for us to match this dream, we also need to expand and setting up lessons can delay this process. It is much quicker to expand by making choices, refining and making more choices. Simply natural growth.
Continually Learning Lessons Makes us Feel Like A Student
In our own lives, we aren’t students but pioneers. We have chosen to live on this earth to bring new thought to creation. It’s because of all the experiences and opportunities in our world, that we get to have new thoughts and ideas. These ideas have never been experienced in this world before and we get to collaborate with others to make these ideas truly great. This is not only an expansion for us, but for the whole Universe. When we take a step forward, the Universe expands.
When we see ourselves as students, we don’t feel worthy of an idea that expands worlds.
It also becomes difficult to break through the veil of believing in ourselves. The World needs us to believe we are capable of anything. Limitless beings with expansive ideas. When we can do this, doors open that were previously invisible and opportunities present themselves that were formerly unknown. Not just ideas for living our own lives, but for changing the way others live. For helping others create a life they too love. Just by our very example.
Many new inventions come from non-scientific people as they aren’t limited by what they’ve learnt in school. They don’t abide by laws they know nothing about. We aren’t limited by what we think we need to know.
Lessons Are Limiting For Our Elevation
Learning lessons is limiting ourselves to what others know. We have our very own built-in Barometer. Remembering how to use this system is the key to flying free of the limitations of others thoughts and opinions. Rather than being weighed down by the knowledge of the past, we get to assess whether we are on our own best path or not.
The Universe will respond to us no matter what our vibration. So when we feel we are learning and that we have much to learn, the Universe naturally provides more lessons as that is our request. We don’t request from the Universe with our words but with our vibration. The need for learning will result in the manifestation of lessons. Lots of them. In fact, there is no end to the amount of lessons the Universe will provide if you ask. Education is different to setting yourself up for lessons. Education is the process of knowledge, lessons are an optional life path. There is not always education in lessons. Mostly, there is disappointment and a feeling of defeat.
Just ask yourself how many times you have asked ‘Why me?’ when something you don’t understand happens. Is this just another lesson you’re setting yourself up for? Maybe ‘What’s Next’, would be a different path for a new direction.
Growth Isn’t A Lesson, It’s Both Natural & Inevitable
Education is part of the process of expansion. We naturally gain knowledge from the consequences of our actions so that we can refine for our next desire and our next. This process is fluid. It flows beautifully and allows our lives to become amazing. We get to choose our focus and it is much easier to become focused on what we want when we know we’re not being punished for something we may have done. Lessons help us get stuck in the process of guilt, thus not allowing the flow.
Check with your own Mood Barometer next time you hear yourself speak “Why me?” or “What did I do wrong?” See how it makes you feel. Then make another choice by asking yourself “What do I want?”
