We’re Here in This Reality to Learn About Who We Are

What is life for? So many things seem important; there are so many things to do. All of them are vying for our attention, and our interests drive our lives via the many seemingly small and insignificant choices we make each day.

But what is it that is ultimately important? Why does this world, with all its limitations, struggle, opposition, and darkness exist? I believe the answer is fundamentally quite simple—that this world exists for us (consciousness) to learn about who we are. The ancients called this self-knowledge.

The ever increasing number of recorded near-death experiences (NDEs) provide some of the most compelling evidence for this. Floating away from their bodies, no longer constrained by the physical world and soaring into the majesty of an eternal and spiritual realm, the experiences of those who have died and been sent back share many consistent and common themes.

All of a sudden, the career, the kids, the TV, the projects they were working on are totally gone, and many are faced with what is called a “life review” in which they experience every moment of their life all over again, but feeling in a profound way not only what they went through, but also how their own actions made others feel. This learning is the sum total of what they took from the life they’d left behind.

What was important was not what they’d learnt from reading or degrees, or watching videos or the news, but from their interactions with others. Most of all—how they had treated those around them. It’s easy to get caught in the events of life and to miss what is really important; it’s easy to go off on tangents of just acquiring intellectual knowledge and information (even of a spiritual kind), and feel a sense of progress. But an intellectual knowledge is totally different from self-knowledge, which is based on conscious experience.

In NDEs there are no congratulations for becoming a bestseller, and no one else to blame for whatever they did or didn’t do. There is no special treatment for the famous or the expert – everyone is graded by their level of consciousness.
