When you view the physical world from an out-of-body perspective, you start to realize that this world is just a playground for spiritual growth and that we're all just “passing through” this place as part of a much larger journey. Trivial things start to take the back seat. Even important things start to take the back seat. What's left in the front seat? Joy. Love. Happiness. Tears. Emotions. Experiences. Laughter. Life. Then you can start to see life as a journey, and not as a predicament. You can view each experience, good and bad, as a steppingstone to a greater you. And as God works through us, our lessons are given to us like clockwork. Sometimes they're handed to us on a silver platter. Other times they're thrown, like pies, in our faces.
