What if, as I have been reading, life on earth is really just a classroom?
And what if only the hardiest souls choose to come to earth in the first place because of the turmoil and uncertainty they know they will face?
And what if, before you agreed to be born here, you got to choose what challenges you would face guaranteeing the most dramatic advancement in your learning?
And what if, of the hardiest souls who come here at all, only the bravest choose to face the challenge of addiction?
And what if, having chosen to face this, all fell into place, as agreed upon, and you became addicted as planned, and not because you are weak and scattered and selfish?
And what if your addiction brought about the greatest possible learning experience for those around you because, like you, they chose to experience this time here, with you, and have learned immeasurably by watching you do battle with addiction?
And what if just like in the movies, all the good guys in heaven and earth are put here to help the hero (you) overcome this addiction, and that all you have to do is reach out for help?
And what if, like in a good movie, you are guaranteed success? That you have already succeeded by accepting the challenge because only the bravest of souls do?
And what if, as the hardiest of souls, agreeing to the hardiest of challenges, you are already a hero?
Here’s to you, my friend.
