Learn Your Lessons Well
What is a Lesson?
When people tell you about learning lessons, what does that mean to you? How would you go about learning lessons if you do not have an understanding of what a lesson is, or what lessons are about? Why are lessons important?
“To Learn Life’s Lessons well, you must first understand the Universe around you.”
You will usually learn something about lessons when you begin school. Most teachers there will have a Lesson Plan, or a schedule of things they will be teaching you. Therefore, in this case, learning a lesson would be learning what your teacher is teaching you. For example, let’s say today the class is meant to learn the “times 2” numbers table. So the numbers table is explained to the class, examples given, then after being instructed on how to go about doing it, you, along with everyone else, get to recite it. The term “Learn your Lesson Well”, would be when you can demonstrate you know the table and what information it has; you have learned it well.
That is how it works in a structured plan.
Lessons in the Real World
When you go out into the world, you are on your own. The lessons in the real world have to do with your decisions, and the repercussions of your decisions. When you make a good decision, it generally will give a good feeling for a short amount of time. But, what happens when you make a bad decision. That gives you a different sensation. That other sensation is often called “pain”. Pain is the repercussion of making an incorrect decision. Pain can show up in many ways – physical pain, emotional pain, financial pain, etc.
Why do you think we are meant to feel pain when we make a wrong decision? If you sense pain as a result of your actions, you will likely think twice about doing it that way again, right? What if you forget about the pain you experienced the first time you made an incorrect decision? What do you think will happen if you make the same bad choice, again? Interestingly, the pain, as a result of your actions becomes bigger and more intense than the first time. Therefore, you keep abusing yourself more each time you make that same mistake. So, what will your next big mistake be when you are making decisions?
So, what you have just learned is when you make an error in your decisions, you will experience pain, until you “learn your lesson”. Also, if you are experiencing pain, there is likely a lesson attached to it. Look for the lesson. If you learn your lessons well, then you will be experiencing less pain on your journey than someone that does not understand lessons.
Your Universe around You
Look around you. You are literally the center of your Universe. It is your paradigm, your reality that you have created that interacts with the rest of the world. Your lessons deal with issues in your Universe and your reality. Therefore, those lessons are for you, and only you. Only you can really determine what they mean. Ultimately, you are the person that must deal with your lessons. Other people have their lessons they are responsible for. You have yours that you are responsible for as well. As your journey unfolds before you, you discover yourself and what you are doing here in this world. You also begin to understand the complex nature of your Universe. By understanding your Universe, you can glean much more information from your lessons.
By stepping forth and embracing your Universe, you are finding yourself and gaining an understanding as to what your lessons mean for you.
Good Luck, enjoy life, and Learn your lessons well!
