I was about to cook brunch after meditating when something occurred to me.
I’ve always wondered why our higher self supposedly chooses challenges, ones that might seem like a life altering problem, or an unfair disadvantage in life. Well I occasionally play Minecraft. Some of you know what Minecraft is. When you start out with a new world in this game, a “seed”, you can pre-select whether to receive a bonus box. This box gives you a few starter tools, some food for your avatar, and a chest to store things in. Well I almost never select it. For a long time I felt it defeated the whole point of a good game. But I’ve gotten so good at Minecraft these days, it’s no challenge to operate with or without the box, but having the bonus box speeds things up and let’s me start building things sooner. As a result, I started selecting the bonus box!
So I realized our higher self is up there creating a Minecraft seed, looking at the options, and DE-selected bonus box! It’s not mean! You don’t feel evil for making the same choice, because in a video game you are both the pilot and the experiencer yes?
We may have things to learn that are more important than an easy journey. Souls who have learned a lot and have a very specific mission purpose sometimes have a rough life, and other times they miraculously sail through with ease, receiving everything they need along the way. This is the bonus box, and it means the soul isn’t focused purely on learning, but has things to do instead. When you have something important to do, you will see that bonus box sometimes.
Just as a reminder, it’s possible to have a soul purpose focused on doing certain things and your life still be a pain in the ****. A lot of spiritual teachers have pointed out that if you hop off the path, ignore your higher self and either do something foolish, or refuse to do what you know to do deep down, things will get very bumpy, very quickly. I don’t have all the answers, or I’d be lost in a rain-forest somewhere with a 4 wheel drive parked on the road 4 miles out.
Just remember your soul owns the laptop! Even if your life isn’t perfect, even if it’s terrible, your higher self will make it back to you in this one or the next, or the next hundred… You will find your dreams, you will have love, health, peace, happiness, and prosperity. You are not forgotten, it is impossible to be forgotten.
This realization felt like my higher self giving me the answer in terms I could understand, to questions I have long asked. Peace :)
