Just when you think you’ve learned all you can, along comes another lesson. Are these a form of punishment? They may feel so at times, for the human is motivated by pain and makes higher choices when nudged by experiences that feel less than pleasant. You did not embody to learn lessons because there is something wrong with the soul. You came here to shine as brightly as possible. You do this through choices. Lessons are what you call the catalysts for choice. Growth is what you call shining brighter. “May my lessons be as painless as possible as I bring ever more Light into this earthly experience.” Not punishment at all, these painful lessons. Opportunities, all.
You are so very loved.
