You interpret what happens in your life according to your core beliefs and the emotional states that arise from them. All experience happens for one purpose only: to expand your awareness. Any other meaning you see in your life experience is a meaning that you made up. You may not decide on a conscious level what will happen to you, but you most definitely interpret what happens according to your beliefs. Your primary freedom lies in accepting and learning from the experiences that come your way.
Love and Light, Wil
