“Learn to allow others to work out their difficulties without feeling that you are the only one who can fix things. Your ego pushes you to fix things, while your higher Self wants you to experience peace and harmony. Choose the latter, allow your higher self to rule. Let other people work out some of the things and don’t have to be right all the time.”
This is a challenging one for many of us. We feel the need to intervene in other people’s lives all the time believing that we are ‘helping’ them. As Dr. Dyer says, this is just the ego allowing you to think that you can fix every situation. However, sometimes people are best left alone to overcome the situation themselves. How else would they learn and grow from the experience? Why else are we here on this planet? Friendly advice is one thing, but believing you know the solution to other people’s problems is another. Next time you feel the need to ‘fix’ a situation, choose to allow the other person to grow; see it as if you are robbing them of their own karmic evolution. Every moment of difficulty we experience is an opportunity for us to grow; so allow others to grow.
Think about all the difficult moments you had to go through in your life up until this point. In hindsight, you are able to see how those experiences changed you. These are the important life experiences that we all must go through that usually integrates into our consciousness and change our behavior. Yes, the journey is sometimes difficult, but the destination is usually worth every effort.
Many wonder why we are here on this planet; why the soul came into the body. This is a great explanation provided by Neale Donald Walsch. “The soul came into physicality in order that it might experience itself, express itself in the physical world as who it really is, thus to know itself in its own experience.” I thought this explained it so well, although it may seem confusing. There is really not much more to it. We think there is really a profound meaning to life, but it is amazing how simple an explanation there is to life. The challenge is knowledge of Self. Think about this a moment.
