108: About growth and learning

As channeled:

“You do not get to understand the lesson until after you have actually participated in the activity and are on the other side of it. It is then that we will help you to see the purpose of the exercise.”


Notes from Eric to expand on the above

Notice the word “help.” They will help you to see the purpose, it does not say they will come out with detailed explanations – that might curtail you from achieving personal insights that come with the achievement.

Allow me to share more of my own experiences (related to the channeled text above) in the event that my own experiences can be of assistance to you.

  1. Seeing the purpose of the lesson or understanding the lesson may not occur on a timeline that you find to be your “preferred turn-around–time.”
  1. It may require you to consider that the topic of the lesson may not be something that you anticipated that you needed.
  1. It may require you to “release control” and simply allow it to become apparent to you on it’s own or on their timing. (Easier said than done!)
  1. It may not take only one try or a single iteration. Sometimes repeat learning or learning in increments is needed. (Not so different than any learning we do.)

  1. I rarely can really understand the end goal…end “desired state”… before the learning begins, or even when the learning is in process. My experiences have been that when I spend too much effort trying to apply control over the lesson in order to understand it midstream, that the lesson becomes harder, or requires repeating.
  1. For me, not all lessons are painful. Sometimes, particularly when I can stand back before, during, or after (which is hard to do) – sometimes there is a humor component. Sometimes humor is a big component, sometimes smaller. The more that you can engage others (in this dimension or in spirit dimensions) with humor and a light heart, I have found that humor and light heartedness are shared back. My experiences have been that the attitude that I go into things with is often met with similar attitude – not unlike how social interactions in this (incarnate) dimension occur. Key takeaway: Monitor your attitude about learning.
