Learning From Unlikely Sources: The Role of 'Enemies' in Our Spiritual Journey


In today's reflection, we dive deep into the essence and significance of a commonly misunderstood adage: "Keep your friend close and enemy closer." At a glance, one might think, "Shouldn't we embrace our friends and distance ourselves from difficult people?" But that's not the message behind these wise words, often attributed to figures like Jesus or Sun Tzu.


Life's Best Teachers: Difficult People

Take a step back. Consider the lessons that truly molded you. Which experiences etched themselves indelibly into your memory? Often, it's those filled with pain, anger, or sorrow that reshape us most profoundly. Pain has a unique way of pushing us toward change. Pleasant, easy moments rarely teach us as much. It's the truly jarring experiences, the utterly unbearable moments, that compel introspection and self-cleansing. Often, these tumultuous encounters involve other individuals - an overbearing parent, a betraying spouse, a resentful boss, or an intrusive in-law. These adversaries in our lives drive or even force us toward spiritual growth, propelling us towards expansion.

Ironically, it's the individuals we often despise, those who raise our blood pressure or bring tears to our eyes – in essence, our 'enemies', difficult people – who are most instrumental to our spiritual journey. Interactions with pleasant individuals teach us little. While friends offer a break and lighthearted moments, they might lead more to stagnation than growth. Thus, spiritual mentors emphasize the wisdom in the saying, "Keep your friend close, and enemy closer." This proverbial 'enemy' often brings more value to our growth than a friend ever could.




Life on Earth: A Grand School of Experience

Our Earth is an expansive classroom where our souls endeavor to cleanse themselves of negative traits (You can find more on that topic in Wanda Pratnicka's book, "In the Wheel of Life Vol. 2). You can't opt out of this school. Every living being is a student here, whether actively participating or merely existing. For those resistant to life's lessons, the journey might be fraught with hurdles. However, those open to learning from Earthly experiences find their paths smoother and more enlightening.

It's crucial to distance ourselves just a little bit from our experiences and the individuals involved. We often get ensnared in negative events, viewing them through the lens of our ego. This egoistic perspective loves to blame, criticize, or condemn those we perceive as wronging us. Thus, it's beneficial to approach experiences with love and ask, "What is this person teaching me?" Once you grasp this at its core, resentment will fade. You'll understand that every individual, even the ones who hurt you, is in your life to teach you something profound. This perspective might challenge many, as the ego often seeks external blame while justifying itself. True self-reflection and admitting one's flaws demand immense courage.


The Journey of Self-Discovery and Growth

Adopting this viewpoint, you'll notice rapid spiritual development and an ever-growing inner strength. This fortitude will shield you from any negative energies, be they from the living or astral beings. Over time, you'll begin to value, perhaps even appreciate, those once labeled as 'enemies,' realizing the depth of growth they bring to your soul. From the depths of my heart, I wish this realization for you!
