I hear this always in discussions and just visiting with Pagan folks and friends,why we are here and what lessons are we learning "THIS" time around. I truely, honestly, feel that in some lives we are just here! We are here to live and enjoy! Of course we learn on a daily basis as we go,but mayhaps we are not here to learn some huge thing everytime around. Thoughts?
I think that yes we are here to learn and as everyone has said we are constantly learning, but maybe not a huge lesson everytime because honestly I think sometimes we come back to teach also. And lets face it once our spirits have had a taste of those truly wonderful and awe inspiring moments in life why wouldnt we want to come back? hahaha it's like eating a delicious meal once you taste it you want it over and over again. Yeah there are bad times in life and some really difficult and awful lifetimes but everything is experience and that's what we need for our spirits to evolve.
I think with each physical incarnation that there is one large, important life changing soul changing lesson to be learned. Of course, we learn lots of small lessons as we live but that one very large lesson that affects who we are, how we see the world and others in it and how it changes the direction of our lives is important. We only have to realize it and that is when the living is done in every life time.
I would agree this is the consensus of it when one believes in reincarnation for most folks. I dont because,I believe that sometimes we are just here to live and enjoy,not with standing the day to day lessons,of course.
I think we do learn...whether we are here for that purpose or not i don't know. Big lessons...small lessons...I don't think there is a BIG one pre defined. I prefer to believe that when i die ill go to the summerland to recharge my 'batteries' and come back for some more life to live.
