"Life is a test. Not, of what you do, but of what you don't do." ~ Martin Luther King Jr. In his book, "Walden", King stated, "The tragedy of our times is that we have forgotten the meaning of life...We have tended to regard it as a kind of survival course, a preparation for dying. The wisdom to see it otherwise is lost."
There are so many reasons why we should learn to live differently. We can't all be winners in life. There would be no more winners and no one would be able to win. Therefore, why try to live a mediocre life, when we know that there is so much more out there for us to learn and enjoy?
One way to approach life differently is to look at it from the other person's point of view. We need to see our lives from the perspective of someone who has experienced what we are now experiencing. How can we test the belief that we have right now, if we can't even believe in ourselves. Sometimes we have to step outside of our belief system to find out what others have to say about it.
Another way to look at life is to make it an adventure. You may be scared of the unknown. That is fine. We each have an adventure to go on, whether we like it or not. Taking the time to go on an adventure is a sign that life is a test.
If you go on an adventure with someone else, it would be easier to communicate. The person who was with you would be able to guide you. This is probably why most people look at life this way - because they wouldn't be able to communicate as much if they were having a conversation with a total stranger. We all know how easy it is to get lost in life and start to talk nonstop, but without communication, how are others supposed to know what we are talking about.
The truth is that life isn't a test, at least not in the normal sense of the word. When we die, our spirit moves on. However, the question still remains. Why would anyone want to live a life that is void of emotion, adventure, and growth. I would submit to you that there isn't a reason to, because there is a reason for living.
