Rei - Thanks for bringing it up - I was speaking about lessons in reply to Ssandra's post. I hadn't actually read your post yet.
The reason I'm saying we're not here to learn lessons is that some people feel like we're 'not enough' on some level (good enough, smart enough, spiritual enough, can have relationships we want, etc), and that if we just learn enough lessons or the right lesson then life will be okay. We are grand beings who have chosen to experience seperation and come back into unification. We are intrinsically 'enough' as we are - we're not the dunces of the universe sent here because we couldn't pass the exam somewhere else. It's like we're playing "hide and go seek" with ourselves as God/Creator, and at times forget that we're playing a game.
Everything registers in the Records - I just don't see life as a lesson. We could have a life with many immutable events that we've placed in it, very few, or even none - and we make things imporant or not. At some point, our response becomes more important than anything, including any events, because it has the greatest impact on our lives.
