Spiritual Testing and Lessons; Just another Day in the Circus

In our life here we’re tested more often than many would guess.  In fact everything we do or face could well be looked at as a spiritual test or lesson.

At times life seems like taking a trip to the circus except in this circus the clowns are not restricted to staying in the center ring.  In this circuit the clowns go into the audience playing their jokes.  When we become the focus of those attempts at humor or just odd behavior it leaves us wondering “what were they thinking?”  It’s very common and to be expected that we are annoyed (to put it mildly) by the level of self-importance, self-centeredness or lack of consideration for anyone else which has been displayed by their actions.

This is where we have the opportunity to grow spiritually.  If the clowns continue to upset us we remain fixated on the drama ignoring the higher lesson to be seen.  Learning to let go of the drama makes it easy to laugh at the antics of these clowns giving us a greater freedom to be at peace.  We are not responsible to, nor could we change others, we have our work cut out for us just to change ourselves.  When we change ourselves we also change everything around us as we create our own reality.

The Earth is a school yard of experience and we’re here to learn.  It’s all about choices or seeing the choices we have.
