During my spiritual journey, I have encountered many going through the same process. Through these encounters, I have learned a valuable lesson. The lesson is this. We all must do our own emotional healing and spiritual work, and no one can do the heavy lifting for us. We may not want others who we care about to be injured or hurt through their life lessons in that we try to rescue them from themselves, but everyone must learn their life lessons and there are no short cuts. This is the nature of life lessons as it will hurt and through this process, we grow up. Some call this tough love, and others call this growing pains.
We all have free will and through this free will, we make decisions for our lives. The decisions that are in our highest become blessings while decisions not in our highest become life lessons. In my personal experience, only I can experience these life lessons, and instill these lessons into my own life and change my own behaviors. We rarely believe other’s experiences or life lessons. We must each learn our life lessons ourselves.
When we encounter others who are struggling, the kindest and most compassionate thing to do is to allow them to experience their life lessons as they are intended to experience them. We must as bystanders surrender to the process without getting involved, but only to serve as guides or advisers when solicited. These are my lessons learned through my failed attempts to rescue others. Blessings on your journey, Brooke (Copyright 2013 Kundalini Spirit with All Rights Reserved)
