NOW I KNOW
We are all here to live every situationwecan imagine, good or bad; right or wrong; positive or negative. Why? So we can learn from the experience as part of the adventure of life. Murray Kibblewhite
CASE STUDY – HOW TO KNOW SUFFERING IS PART OF THE ILLUSIONSUBJECTBELIEFS
In his “Autobiography of a Yoga”, Paramahansa Yogananda in the Chapter 30 headed “The Law of Miracles” page 270 he quotes the Lord: –
“Creation is light and shadow both, else no picture is possible. The good and evil of maya must ever alternate in supremacy. If joy were ceaseless here in this world, would man ever seek another?
Without suffering he scarcely cares to recall that he has forsaken his eternal home.”
But, you may ask, why permit such suffering? He further says page 270: –
“Pain is a prod to remembrance. The way of escape is through wisdom!
The tragedy of death is unreal: those who shudder at are like an ignorant actor who dies of fright on the stage when nothing more is fired at him than a blank cartridge. My sons are children of light; they will not sleep in delusion.”
So the Duality system we live in is set up to allow us each to experience pain and pleasure, anger and humour, and bad and good. Without the opposite you cannot experience the other.
So what is the learning here?
ParamanansaYogananada gives his view on page 270 as, “One’s values are profoundly changed when he is finally convinced that creation is only a vast motion picture, and that not in it, but beyond it, lies his own reality.”
When we recognise we live in an illusion that allows us to experience everything through the Duality system, then the pain becomes bearable, even welcome, as we know it will not last forever.
If we learn to view every situation as a learning experience then we can improve the way we work with the outcome.
All life’s experiences are opportunities to learn. The challenge is to decide, what is the real lesson to be learnt?
