Are Experiences Meant to Make You Better or Bitter?
I hope all is well with you and yours, and you are getting some much-needed rest!
Self-reflection is critical to the evolution of the human species. Whatever you believe may be passed on to future generations, and as you know, our actions have a direct and indirect effect on others. So, I do have some self-reflection questions for you.
- What do you believe is the purpose of experiences?
- Do experiences help to bring out the truth within you? If so, what truths are you accepting or refusing?
- Are your experiences shaped your thoughts? If not, then what are your experiences shaped by? If so, what are your experiences teaching you about your thoughts?
- Do experiences help to express the virtues within you, or are experiences out to get you? If so, what virtues (compassion, love, grace, mercy, and the like) do you need to express now?
- Is life supposed to be a struggle? Why or why not?
- How can I change my thoughts to be more life-sustaining to fulfill my purpose and enjoy the fruits of my work?
Whatever you believe about life often comes to fruition in some form. And, whatever you believe, you share with others through your actions (including inactions) and words. The generational pain cycle (disease, violence, low self-esteem, and the like) didn’t start on its own. But, within us is the power to change the thoughts that created pain.
Whether fear or love, darkness or light, it first occurs within and then without.
In today’s podcast, Create a Generational Love Cycle, I share my thoughts on experiences, including a potentially traumatic childhood experience.
