Repeat experiences

A Warrior of the Light notices that certain moments repeat themselves.

He often finds himself faced with the same problems and situations as before He becomes depressed. He begins to think he is incapable of making progress in life, the difficult moments having returned.

“I’ve already been through this”, he complains to his heart.

“It is true, you have been through it”, replies the heart. “But you never went beyond it.”

The warrior then understands that the repetition of experiences have one single purpose: to teach him that which he has not yet learned. He begins to seek out a new solution for each repeated struggle – until he finds a way of conquering.
