Learning What We Need to Know
“Nothing ever goes away until it has taught us what we need to know.” – Pema Chodron
And if you abort the learning in its original form because
- it was too painful
- or you felt you did not have the time
- or the people you were learning with did not want to learn with you anymore,
I can guarantee you that the lesson will come back in another guise, with other people, other jobs, different organizations, maybe even in different places you may live in.
Until you have learned what it is that you needed to learn. Then the people who were playing that game with you will
- either change
- or their role will change in your life
- or they somehow drop out of your life, sometimes quite fast
You know what you are learning right now, because the people who are the most difficult to handle or be with in your life right now are the ones you are learning it with. You are being mirrors and teachers for each other. What is the true core of your issue with them? What buttons are they pushing?
What do YOU need to learn that keeps coming back in your life?
