Why We Are Challenged…

People do not grow when their environment is too comfortable, when they are not challenged.  – Daisaku Ikeda


We are lazy and we refuse to learn from history. Our only true learning comes from facing life challenges directly. Our planet is just the right place to live a life full of rich challenges. We’re forced out of our stupor and must rise to meet any situation that the Universe designs for us!

Why were we chosen to live this life? What part do we play in all this? What do we get out of this? Why is it the way it is? All these questions will be answered in due time and to our full satisfaction. Until then it’s our task to live life fully, fearlessly, lovingly and continue to seek answers! Life is interesting!
