AT EVERY TURN THERE IS AN OPPORTUNITY TO LEARN AND EVOLVE
The body is a vehicle for the mind, and the mind is the troublemaker that forms the barrier between pure consciousness or Divinity, and the body itself. The process is to clarify the mind for the mind must achieve purity. The achievement of purity is what we term evolution.
Earth is like a school – we have come to learn. Why should we learn? Because we want to evolve. Why do we want to evolve? Because we want to be free from suffering. We want to reach that state of primal peace from which we have come. But to reach that state of peace we have to go to school – this is the school.
At every turn, there is an opportunity to learn and evolve. We cannot stop evolution because it is inherent within us to evolve. It is a force that carries us on and on. Even the trials and tribulations of life are nothing but opportunities. When we view adversities in this light the sting of the so-called adversity disappears; for what makes us suffer is our own mind, nothing else.
