Searching for the truth – that has always been there

Searching for truthI recently saw a quote that inspired me to write:

“Life Is A School, Where You Learn How To Remember What Your Soul Already Knows.” ~Author Unknown

This certainly rings true to me. Have you ever had that feeling that you have already experienced what you living at the current moment? Some people call it déjà vu.

I will tell you about an experience that I’ve had that goes beyond that déjà vu feeling…

When I was younger, I had this experience where I felt totally awakened – if only for a moment. This occurred when I was in a meditative state. First, I felt myself rising above my house, then rising above the clouds, then rising above the earth. Finally, I found myself hovering beside a nearby planet – looking at the earth from afar.

There was this guide with me, who was sort of showing me the grand scheme of things. You would think that all of that would have scared me. I mean, if I think of it now I can see how it could be scary. But the funny thing is…I actually felt more at peace than I ever had before.

I felt as though I was at home, and like that was the reality. It was only for a brief period of time, but I do remember the feeling of “knowing” all and feeling at ease with everything in my life. Now I know that we are here to learn. We are here to experience. Of course, many people would think this is a very strange type of story. And hey, maybe some would say it was a dream. I’m not sure exactly what it was.

Up until now, this has always just been a very personal experience that I’ve had – that I’ve kept mostly to myself.

But the thing that stuck with me the most is the feeling of comfort – the feeling of KNOWLEDGE that was just there. It was a great feeling – it’s very unlike the feelings of anxiety and fear that we go through during our lives here.

This is why that quote rings so true to me. I feel like when we are born, a block is automatically in place within us. We do not remember all that our soul knows because that would defeat our learning process. Of course, we must retain some of our knowledge, but definitely not all. We must learn lessons in this life and learn how to deal with difficult situations. And we also get to experience pure joy in happy situations.

Life is indeed a complex array of events and emotions. I have been through my share of difficult events and joyful events, as we all have. But I can appreciate that it is a learning experience, through and through. And one day, we will be awakened to all that is true – that we have always known.
