Contract Of Life

Could it be that perhaps our Soul knew the agreement going in? That we will feel both pain and pleasure, happiness and sorrow, and everything in between. Almost as if it is a part of the contract of life. In order to simply feel, we must be open to experiencing it all. But the Soul still values the very good, just as much as the terribly bad. The meaning of life would then be to feel what is within the body and the mind – all for the benefit of the Soul. Maybe this is because, to feel, is the greatest gift of all.
