Journey 19: Coming to A Full Circle

Journey 19: Coming to A Full Circle

“I beg you, to have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don’t search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer.” –Rainer Maria Rilke

Have you experienced in your life that certain people or things are keep coming back to you? Things, people, opportunities that you thought you had lost in the past are showing up in your life again as if you were given the second or third chances and being told “do not miss it this time around”? Because life is nothing but a lesson and same lesson will keep showing up until you get it. If you miss the opportunity to learn your lesson, it may take you months, years or sometimes decades before your next chance shows up.

There is no coincidence in life. Everything happens for a reason, good, bad, joyful, painful, and everything in between. It is our human nature and our ego that say one experience is better than another and crave what is pleasant and try to avoid the unpleasant. However, a soul doesn’t have preferences— because it just all is. Experiencing life and learning are what your soul is here to do on this earth.

If certain things or people are keep coming back to you, then you have an unresolved issued which you need to look into. No matter how hard you try to push them away, it will find its way back to your life one way or another. It is for your sake to deal with it now than later as delaying what is inevitable is like accumulating your “things to do” in life without knowing.

I am sure you have heard the saying “timing is everything”. We often don’t have control over when certain things happen in our lives. Especially when your life lesson is dealing with someone else, it is almost a miracle that opportunity arises again that you can learn your lesson. When we are young, we sometimes don’t see things clearly as timing is not ripe, or we haven’t had enough experiences in life to realize the meaning of this encounter.

But if you are reading this blog, you are ready. When the recurring opportunity shows up in your face, I say, take it without hesitation. Don’t doubt yourself, second guess yourself and miss your opportunity again. That job you wanted, the person you wanted to connect, the city you always wanted to live in is in your mind for a reason. Don’t miss your sign and don’t miss your life. Live fully because life is all about coming back to a full circle.
