“It is better to live your own destiny imperfectly than to live an imitation of somebody else’s life with perfection.” – Anonymous, The Bhagavad Gita
Life must be vested in spiritual growth, otherwise we would not undergo the life experiences which befall us. People often talk about this was meant to be or it happened for a reason. I don’t subscribe to this way of thinking since it warrants I am beyond being the creator of my circumstances. It doesn’t hold true that I am merely a puppet in a play upon which life weaves her orchestration of events. Surely I must have a role in the creation process?
What is it meant to be? Think back to the incident I asked you to recall a moment ago. Our experiences shape us into whom we are today – whether favourable or unfavourable. You are the sum of your past thoughts, beliefs and actions.
Your life lessons may be distinct to others and yet they shapes and colour your perception of life. As you become aware and awake to the process of life, every event has the potential to shape your life and destiny. Yes, even a leaf landing on your face is imbued with a spiritual message.
Think of life as an arcade game in which you are the central character directing your experiences. What experiences would you want to have unfold in the game of your life?
What would be the theme of the game? And the final outcome? Who would be the victor?
The value of your life is determined by the level of questions you ask.
Ask and you shall receive.
