Throughout history, many people have always looked at themselves as victims, falling prey to those who are in authority over them.
This false belief has continuously put many souls on the continuous cycle of reincarnation and karma, learning the same lessons over and over again until it finally sinks in that they really aren’t victims, they just keep doing the same things over and over again to create the same circumstances until they finally learn the lesson.
As long you keep doing the same things over and over, you are going to get the same results.
Once we take on a new perspective and develop a more positive attitude and become willing to learn from our so-called mistakes, our lives change.
Our lives instantly begin to reflect the shift toward positivity. We learn our conscious and subconscious thoughts, beliefs and definitions can be our best friends or our worst enemies. As Buddha once said, “Nothing can harm you as much as your own thoughts unguarded.”
It is a concept many people have trouble understanding and accepting. It comes from placing our faith in an outside source, the lack of faith in oneself, and from not understanding who we really are.
Whatever we see from our human perspective is only a small portion of truth. We would save ourselves a lot of grief to have more confidence in the wisdom of our higher self, our eternal consciousness, and its connection to the God Source.
Regardless of how bad or tragic a situation might appear from our human perspective, it can lead to spiritual growth, we actually create those circumstances in our life to grow. In fact, specifically what is happening isn’t as important as how we feel about what is happening, because our feelings determine our vibrational path.
As Buddha said, “Pain is certain, suffering is optional.”
We learn through adversity, as much as we dislike the so-called negative events in our life, those are the times we experience the most soul growth and fulfillment.
If you never experience negativity, you will never know or appreciate the positive times in your life. That is one of the main reasons to reincarnate, there is no negativity in the spirit world when we go Home, or to heaven.
In Heaven, there is only Eternal Bliss. Eternal Bliss in wonderful, but we can never grow by only having Eternal Bliss in our life. Our soul needs challenges and so-called negative circumstances to reach it’s highest potential.
Thus we are not victims, we are only fulfilling the mission we came to earth to accomplish.
The adverse conditions we all face are actually blessings in disguise.
