It’s easy to confuse the spiritual plane with the human plane. I look at all of life like a game – we are here to play! That means as humans we take on many roles, and of course, sometimes we “lose.” That’s when it is time to step back and look at the Big picture. It helps us understand our own pain and suffering, as well as that of others. When we turn to the Divine to do the heavy lifting, everyone wins!
When other people are suffering, it is not our job to save them. We can help if we want or more importantly, if they ask, but sometimes our help can actually interfere with the natural laws of feedback. Feedback can help prevent problems from re-appearing. Being conscious of how we help is so much more useful in my experience – for both the helped and the helper. Parents learn that it hurts to see a child fall, but the wise parents know that by allowing your child to stumble and learnt o get up, is one of the best things a parent can do for a child.
Here is the podcast I mentioned about “Creating Your Own Reality.”
