The School of Life
Life and experiences of life are instructors which teach us to better understand our existence. All that we experience become part of our subconscious mind and we draw from those experiences whenever we need them. We may be unaware that our souls are going through an evolution, a learning process, which allows it to elevate to the highest level until it gets liberated. The learning process therefore leads us to learn about that higher order of existence which is unbound by Maya. All the outer physical experiences of the world do eventually contribute to evoke an inner spiritual growth. But it depends on how we interpret the experiences of the outward world. Each person understands his own experience differently and are at different stages, depending on their spiritual level. Every experience has a spiritual aspect to it. On the surface, it will appear worldly, but deep down it is part of the soul’s learning process and evolution. If we are spiritual beings going through a human experience, we have to understand that only our spiritual experiences will stay with us and go with us. All else will perish, just as the body perishes. Only the eternal transcends this world to go beyond in its journey to the eternal abode. Material possessions are just for temporary use, while we are going through this human experience. Satguru Kabir Saheb said :
“Maya muyi na man muaa, mari mari gayaa sharir
Aashaa trishnaa naa muyi, youn kathi kahein Kabir”.
