For me the best part of this experience called life is personal spiritual growth. Growth means learning knowledge to gain wisdom over time, which will give you the strength you need to cope with all of the experiences you will have on earth. You grow from goodness into greatness by remembering all of the lessons you have learned so you can grow from it. Growth is so important!
We all need balance in our lives. Some of us desire it and others are forced to seek it because they have been through so much struggle, pain, pressure, anxiety and stress throughout their lives. I've learned that bad things will happen to the some of the best people on the planet. People don't always get to choose their experiences or life lessons.
As I watch life play out in this world, I notice how caught up we get. We tend to get too caught up or trapped in all of the madness until we choose to make a change. When people choose change for some reason they focus on what is on the outside first. It seems that most people usually tend to work hard to get their MATERIALISTIC/EXTERNAL self in order and wonder why the scales of their lives are so unbalanced. Then they feel something is off and start to get their PHYSICAL/EXTERNAL self in order but wonder why the scales of their life still seems so unbalanced.
Then they think, well maybe if they feed their head things will balance out, so they focus on EDUCATION/EXTERNAL self in order. Some may even go seek counseling or some form of therapy to help their MENTAL/EMOTIONAL self, yet still they wonder why the scales of their lives to be way off balance.
You must let your soul guide you so you can find the answers for the spiritual part of your journey. Growth can be messy, ugly, painful and such a struggle so don't try to be perfect. Embrace your imperfections every single day.
Perfection is not an option because we need life experience to grow.
People will chase all of the wrong things first to learn the life lessons they need to just discover all of the right things that will give them growth. If we knew all of the answers to our questions we would have no need to experience life. If we didn't experience life our way, we would have no journey or path to teach us life lessons.
