Life needs to be understood practically before accepted physically.

Often is it questioned, what is life all about, why are we here and what is it that we need to fulfill?  We delve deep into our own nature, seeking answers to the age old riddle of life.  People reach this point of questioning mostly in the times in their life when things start to feel a bit of a strain or struggle physically.  They wonder why they have to achieve things and question what the meaning behind such physical limitation is. 

We live in a world that holds to certain rules and structures.  Born into it and taught by all that have already been before.  Always are we told how it must be and what we should be doing, but never are we told why it must be or why we must participate at all?  Even children are constantly being spoken to in a way that only provides no and yes answers, and never an understanding of why they need to experience things in such systems and structure.

There are stages of thinking that a person goes through in order to understand their position in life.  They first have issues that arise and they must then confront physical limitation and constraint.  Firstly they will fight against their perceived repressors words and rules, just like when a child refuses to do things when a parent asks of it.  Even though the repressor might not always be pushing concepts and ideas onto a person for want of hurting them, mostly it is done out of caring and wanting for another person to fit into life.  It is still when brought down to simplicity, a rule presented forth through another person’s beliefs and opinions on life.  It is not until we reach the stage of adulthood that we realize how much this is evident, that what our parents always told us to do, is not necessarily the way we will choose to do it for ourselves. 

Fighting against restriction is the first step we take on the path to understanding life and why we are here.  We first confront our position in life and question why all things must take place, and why we need to participate in all the physical rules and structures in life.  The next stage is when we realize that certain rules and structures when not met in life bring to us worse struggle than our defiance from wanting to participate.  This is the stage that leads to depression for a lot of people, and when they reach this stage most often they will seek outside help for answers. 

A lot of times these depression stages, when we have to acknowledge that we are living in life and that there are certain things that need to take place in order to survive, we really start to question our reality and why it exists.  Most people reach this stage through certain steps within their life, but others reach this stage when great turmoil comes into their life, or dramatic life events.  At these stages they will reach out to people that can help them through their emotional and mental problems and lead them on a path of finding happiness and contentment in their life. 


It does not matter how much help we seek in life from others, eventually the understanding of our circumstances in life needs to be confronted individually.  Although another person can give us advice that comes from their own choices and perception on life, it is not until a person deals with their own experiences emotionally and mentally before they come to levels of acceptance inside themselves.

Acceptance comes from understanding life at the most practical level.  Seeing it through cause and effect rather than in have to and must do, knowing that we are already here and that we not only have the ability to think but also to physically experience life through perception in our bodies.  This gives us a stepping stone to hold ourselves up on.  The fact that we are here gives us every reason to participate in life and see it as an experience.  If the experience were not meant to be, then surely it would not have a reason to exist.  This shows us that we are the experience of life and reality, not the reason for it, but the effect from the cause. 

Knowing that we are the experience of reality, both physically and mentally, helps us to understand and accept reality at all levels, seeing it as a playing field with so much potential and purpose.  You could think of it in this way perhaps, if you had the choice between not existing or taking on animated existence that had so much potential for growth and experience, which would you choose?  Would you choose nothing or a life of something?

Seeing life as having potential is the first step to accepting the whole experience.  Most will go through several stages before reaching this practical understanding.  They might even get to levels of not wanting to be a part of life anymore, or even that they think that they are making this all up in their head.  What ever they think does not change the fact that they are here, participating in animated reality.  They know mentally, even though they might challenge their perception through ego, that they will tomorrow wake up in their bodies here on earth and know that they will have to follow the process that all do here in animated reality. 

Even if someone would question if they create this for themselves they will be the first to have to admit inwardly, even if not to others, that their choice to be here is ‘mentally’ not in their power to change, only physically can a person make decisions on their own survival.  This illustrates even more the importance of accepting physical reality even to the most practical levels.  That we are physical as well as mental, and that the whole of reality is about the experience, rather than always having to be about a result or the cause. 

If life were to be experienced knowing that you had no choice in the cause and reason, and your own happiness and measure of potentiality were to be in your own physical hands, how would you want to experience life?  Would you want to will away every moment while being in the experience, measuring your life on unhappiness and struggle, or would you make the most of all that was on offer and all that was a possibility? 

Would you still focus on fighting against your perceived repressor or would you accept that there are practical things that need to be accepted in life based on cause and effect?  That we are the event taking place and even when we do not want to participate we have not the ability to mentally change our physical experience, we can only mentally change our ‘perception’ of life and how we wish to experience it. 

Life is about perception and when lived practically through understanding things at the basis of reality, based on the fact that we are here anyway, gives us every reason to make the most of all that we have to experience.  Through choice and accepting life practically we can achieve anything that is possible in our perceived reality.
