We all come into this life with a journey or a mission. This mission is one that is carved out by our soul before we enter our body. Our souls decide what life experiences they wish to have and what lessons they wish to learn.
We know as a soul that we may forget our mission and go off track, but this is all part of the journey, and all part of the game of life.
As Eckhart Tolle suggests, raising your level of consciousness and spirituality has nothing to do with what you do, but rather how you do it.
Every encounter you have with someone/something is an experience. All that comes to us is an opportunity for our souls evolution. We can walk away feeling happy that we acknowledged/accepted/embraced the experience or walk away feeling scared/judged/angry…and if this happens, it may be a sign to look within ourselves.
Every act serves spiritual growth and development, it depends on how you choose to look at things.
