The point of physical life experience is to play the Game of Life, and this game is composed of polarities, dualities.
Light and Dark.
The unconscious ego embodies the Dark, also called the Shadow self.
When you are born, you undergo limiting conditioning, programming.
This programming is called the unconscious ego, the False Self.
It masks the Heart, the Light.
It is like a cloak that covers up the Heart. It is a false self.
Because of this covering up, this cloaking, your heart develops “gravity”.
The more the cloak, the heavier the heart.
The more you believe your false separate self, the heavier the heart.
This gravity will attract more of whatever is necessary to resolve the Shadow, the unconscious ego.
The Heart, in its infinite wisdom, brings precisely the right condition at the right time, to give you a chance to see your belief system, experienced physically, so you can resolve any error of identity, and find Truth.
And so, when you see that suffering is a self-correction mechanism, you can then begin to appreciate it for what it is, and use it to Know Thyself, to reveal the Shadow and uncover Truth.
In this way, every experience serves your evolution and the evolution of the Whole.
The practice of Mindfulness and meditation is the best tool for seeing through all this, personally, for you.
That was a sample taken from the course, Radical Mindfulness Made Simple in 5 Easy Steps.
