Life is kind to those who treat her kindly. But if intensity, with its power is used, then life desires to meet her match. And uses the match for preparation to a higher glory that has little bearing on what one believes. It is not a matter of life in a hereafter that has one floating on a bed of tranquility. When life’s conditions are met in the physical, there will be testing periods only chosen by the person who feels the need to gather time and put it to use in a way that others would find untenable.
Who would put or pit themselves against situations that would force a do or die attitude? Who would force themselves to grow in spite, despite all prevailing attitudes about stress and stress related illnesses, except the soul who knows a something that seems to escape the knowledge of others?
Escapes the knowledge of others. It is an ancient thought that has propelled some to the present now with the knowledge that by stressing themselves they will prove capable of better and higher things. And not necessarily in physical life. There is something innate that tells them there is a something beyond physical life and when pressed, they will shrug and say who knows? Or some such bright saying. They will also when pressed deny it and say we work for our family, for position, for the good of some worthwhile cause. But the truth of the matter lies in the fact that what they are saying is that they want to be qualified. Qualified to pass a higher judgment to qualify for a position of work that will enable their transport into a world unlike the one they have known.
And the world held in mind is different than their neighbors, in that it will be of memory as they bring it to conscious mind. These will be glimpses. They could not elaborate if their lives depended on it and could not describe nor articulate their feelings. It is done with the hope that what propelled them here has resulted in a life worthy of graduation to a something higher. They are in a cooperative venture with the heavens. There is assistance for the intense desire of the pilgrim. It is there for the asking.
Though the majority of us feel we are plowing the field with runaway horses, it is enough to find at the end of the day, that we too have been tested. And found worthy.
