Life is a process of self discovery, and no experience is ever wasted. It only brings us closer to our evolution.

That which is changing is unreal. That which is changeless is real.
It is only through change we grow, gain experience and live. Yet it is how we choose to REACT to change that makes a difference.
Everyone is doing the best they can according to THEIR map of the world!
Is the ego good or bad? Neither. It is a reactive mechanism to our past experiences. It is only interested in physical survival, not our spiritual growth. Do not resist it - it can be used as a tool.
Extreme difficulties should be regarded a compliment - for it is a sign that you're an old soul being tested to see if you're ready to rise to the next level towards enlightment.
When one has dared new experiences - to go beyond their comfort zone - a brand new world of possibilities opens up, and one can't help but grow.
