Does God teach us lessons or do we just learn on our own?


All paths lead to awakening.

I think that Life teaches us lessons. I also know that we have to be open to those lessons or we don't learn from them. When we don't learn the lesson it just keeps coming back until we DO learn it.


So much to learn and see and do

(The Voice for) God teaches lessons that we remember or choose to learn otherwise. The lessons that God teaches cannot be denied, but they can be ignored - which becomes a lesson in ignorance.

I find that God's Lessons (Life's lessons) are more about unlearning, than what passes for learning and acquiring knowledge. Like I might tell God (and my world) that I don't have what it takes to move that mountain. And God works with me (through me) to unlearn the logic that would have God's Child believing that He can't move mountains. Or I might tell God that I can't forgive that one over there, nor could I ever see any reason to love them. And God works with me to unlearn the grudges that I insist are blocking forgiveness. God also has high tendency to assist me in realizing that there is no place my Love does not go. Even while I would reinforce the lesson that "those people over there" are not worthy of "love."

God's Lessons are about "drawing wisdom from" rather than "putting knowledge into."
