The Schoolhouse Theory of Life

Four years ago I was diagnosed with breast cancer At first I was shocked. How could anything like this happen to me? I took good care of myself – I am a vegetarian, don’t smoke or drink and have been meditating for years. I even made a courageous choice to completely change my life and follow my heart and be truly authentic.
I could not make sense of it in relative terms. Instead of going into fight mode and kill the cancer as well as my immune system I decided I needed to come to a peace within myself and learn what this experience had to teach me. Yes I would do everything in my power to be well and to heal but the rest was beyond my control. I needed to surrender to whatever my destiny had in store for me. I looked at this experience as a gift – the gift of transformation.
I decided to appreciate every moment I was alive. I decided to publish Bound by Destiny. It had been sitting collecting dust for 15 years. Hal and I decided to travel to beautiful and spiritual places. I opened my heart to love and forgiveness and let go of blame and guilt and judgement. I can honestly say I have had a fulfilling and amazing life and have no regrets.
I talked about past life karma in the book and how it creates our present life karma. I do believe however that we choose how much karma we are willing and able to take on before we come into this life. If we are really brave we may take on a lot and when we get here, it may seem like too much. But keep in mind we did choose it and it is for our evolution.
So, hopefully, we will learn our lessons and burn off all our karma and reach enlightenment quickly. Who knows how long that will take.
I’m up for the challenge. Are you?
