Have you ever thought about reincarnation? If you haven’t, typically, the idea is that you continue coming back again and again after you die in order to learn every lesson that your soul needs to learn.
Well, personally I believe this to be true to an extent. I feel like we only get a specific number of tries to learn each lesson. What if we get a specific number of lives per lesson we are supposed to learn? For instance maybe during our infant stage we only get 9 lives and from that point, lesson learned or not we are forced to move forward. I believe that no one deserves an infinite number of chances.
Now, for different people, their life lessons may vary some but overall there are 9 that I have come to understand to be the most important. Below you will find a list of the 9 most important life lessons as I have defined them. Of course, not everyone will agree with these things but most will. We learn these lessons in different orders so putting them in any kind of set order is not necessary.
9 Most Important Life Lessons: (In No Particular Order)
People in our lives will die and we will die. You see, from an early age death is something we all face. It is as we are reincarnated something that becomes a big part of who we are. We must learn to stop being afraid of it.
2. Being yourself is one of the most important things, period.
We must strive to be ourselves. If you are someone who enjoys dancing, then dance. Be true to who you are. Never change your true self for anyone else.
3. Happiness is not something to be found externally.
Happiness is something many of us struggle with. We will not be able to move forward without realizing that happiness comes from within. You cannot find true happiness if you are looking for it in other people/things.
4. We must treat others how we wish to be treated.
In life, we have to learn that being selfish is not a good thing (within reason of course). We have to be nice to other people, being a sour pus is not going to benefit anyone. Sure, when someone is an ass it is fine to be a little sassy but don’t say or so things you will regret.
We do not have as much control as we think we do. We need to understand that things happen and that we cannot prevent some of these things. Being aware of how unpredictable life is will help you big time.
6. Running is never the answer (within reason).
We have to be able to stick up for ourselves. Being someone else’s ragdoll is not an option. This is something many people I know struggle with, even I from time to time.
7. Failure is something we all must experience.
We all have to be strong enough to accept that failure is a part of life. Nothing ever goes as planned to a T. Sometimes we must just let life happen and pick up the pieces once they have fallen.
8. The bad things in life happen for a reason.
There are bad things that will happen in life no matter how perfect or nice you are. We learn from these things. Bad things happen for a reason. There is meaning behind every single thing that happens.
9. Connections are very important in life/all lives matter.
In life, we must be aware that every life matters and that no life is more important than another. We should make connections and be there for those around us. We are all connected.
You may think you know these things but chances are you actually don’t. It takes many lifetimes to really understand these things in the ways that we need to. Only when we have these things down pat can we move on to the next point of the ‘afterlife.’
Whether or not these are the only lessons is something we could all consider to be debatable as is whether or not we actually only get 9 lives per lesson. While I believe this could very well be a great way to explain things, you may not. What do you think about this and does it resonate with you? This is my spin on reincarnation, I hope someone can really delve into this as I have.
