Why Is It All So Hard? Part 3
Why is it all so hard?
What did I do to deserve this?
Why is there so much suffering and pain?
Finally, here are the answers from a higher perspective about why our individual souls may be suffering.
- 1. Spirit Did It
If you believe or will choose to believe in past lives, reincarnation and the soul as eternal, then you will believe that before you reincarnated into this life you chose the tasks and the lessons you wanted to learn. It has been referred to as a blueprint, birth vision, Sacred Contract, and soul mission.
We don’t grow when things come easily, so these tasks and lessons probably won’t.
Many years ago I heard a wonderful story that I would like to share with you. Dr. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross was a psychiatrist and pioneer in the field of near-death studies and working with the dying. Her seminal work On Death and Dying provided the five stages of dying that have been used not only with physical death, but also with grief due to any type of loss.
Dr. Kübler-Ross was taking care of her seriously ill mother for many years. One day she asked God, ‘Why does my mother have to suffer so?’ The answer she got was ‘Your mother has to learn how to receive. She can either do it in these few years or she can come back and spend an entire lifetime learning it.’ Dr. Kübler-Ross was satisfied with this answer.
This story may help anyone who is in a situation where they need to be taken care of or are the caretaker. It will also help all individuals who believe they are suffering by opening their minds to the possibilities of what they are not allowing or receiving that is being “forced” on them.
- 2. Overzealous Spirit
According to Sylvia Browne, in Life on the Other Side: A Psychic’s Tour of the Afterlife, we may have been overzealous when creating our blueprint. Our state of mind on the Other Side “is euphoric, fearless, and utterly confident. There’s nothing we feel unequipped to handle, nothing we’re reluctant to take on in our hunger for spiritual growth…” So in this state of mind, we might be overzealous in what we choose to accomplish. Can you blame us?
- 3. Karma
To me, karma is a chosen path for soul growth.
Repaying karmic debt is the soul’s way of understanding and experiencing what they have previously caused to others in past lives. Pain, struggles, traumas, and heart-aches all make you more empathetic, more compassionate and more understanding. These are major goals for growing the soul.
Temptations, the ego, limiting beliefs, critical thoughts, unresolved wounds, faulty perception, and not remembering who we really are create multiple life cycles of suffering and karmic debt.
This is where resolving and/or releasing all the previous issues come in. You can resolve those issues, or you can choose to awaken and behave from the soul and spirit. Do so and you will incur no more karmic debt. Evolve your perception until you become the spiritual being having, experiencing and witnessing the human/physical existence.
The Answers about Our Collective Soul from a Higher Perspective
To answer the question of global suffering, including genocide, world hunger, epidemics, natural disasters, slavery, and poverty, you have to understand that an advanced soul may choose to reincarnate for a few, trying years (comparably, in eternal-life terms) so that:
A. global lessons may be learned
B. local laws may be changed or enacted
C. awareness may be created in a community, city or country
D. new medical, scientific and technological research and development will be catalyzed
E. many individual souls may be mobilized into actions that grow their souls; kind of a mass lesson that raises the collective consciousness and universal vibration.
Epidemics are occurring because there many people who have the same lesson to learn. They all need to listen to their bodies, interpret its messages and heal the open wounds.
Let go of the past. Let go of criticism, anger, resentment and guilt. Forgive yourself and all others who you perceive as having wronged you. Learn to love yourself and others unconditionally. Free yourself! Free your perception!
