Learning in Earth School

By Steve D’Annunzio

Human beings repeat the same mistakes over and over.

We see this tendency with people who have many relationships, but none work. We see people have many jobs, but none offer satisfaction.

We live in a school called Earth. Every person and event contains a valuable lesson. All lessons will be repeated until learned.

Every time a lesson is ignored as irrelevant, this re-learning process requires the lesson to repeat in a more intense fashion.

In other words, every time it has to be re-learned it becomes more painful.

By the continuous remembrance that you are in Earth School, a miraculous shift will occur in your life. You focus on learning instead of blaming.

Perceived negatives exist in our lives to awaken us to higher possibilities — these negatives are the lessons. Problems as opportunities; without them you could never grow or evolve.

Free will determines when, not if, one takes the Earth School curriculum. Free will does not allow you to write the curriculum — it only exists in relation to the timing, attitude, and persistence you bring to your life. Your life is the classroom.

When you were in college there were certain required courses you had to take within a four-year time span. You could choose when, but not if, you took them. If you failed the course, and graduating was the goal, that course had to be repeated.

Earth School operates similarly, though in a more random fashion.

Because most people are in ego-delusion, they ignore the lessons as irrelevant, choosing to instead take the negative situation as a personal insult.

Hence, most human beings walk around on the defense, just looking for reasons to be offended. This causes them to blame, instead of learn.

The lesson must then be repeated, and the student unknowingly destines himself to the merry-go-round of painful repeat performance mistakes. As this continues throughout life, he eventually becomes resigned to his fate of playing small, while wondering why others experience prosperity and joy but not him.

The ego is causing the pain, while very convincingly projecting that the source of the pain is due to forces outside of us.

“Sane” people take the pain caused by ego-delusion and internalize it, but in doing so destroy inner joy and belief in themselves. “Insane” people take the pain caused by ego-delusion and externalize it onto others, feeling justified in destroying others’ lives; misery loves company.

This syndrome is at root of the scarcity belief system most people live by — a paradigm that holds the Earth and her inhabitants in a state of war-like misery.

If one were in a war zone in which the idea is sheer survival, to abide by the scarcity paradigm would be wise. But if thriving is the goal, it will greatly expand your life success to implement the Prosperity Paradigm.

On Earth — as it is in any other school — to advance on to the next grade you must pass tests.

And your first and most important test is whether you will learn or blame when faced with trials.
