God created time so that we could have plenty of it to learn our divine purpose in this earthly experience; time allows us to mature through discovering negative patterns that keep us in the ego.
The basic drill follows like this: (to gain maturity)
- Identify our reactive behavior (wrong thinking)
- Examine the reasons for its repetition; what are the triggers
- Move to consciously correct our behavior with help from introspection (our spirit) and achieve ‘right’ thinking
- Seek help if we can’t move beyond the correction
(It may be that you need outside assistance, i.e. another’s helping hand or even professional help. It is ‘right’ minded to recognize this too.)
