So far the lesson is not fully learned, life will expose us to situations in which we need to tackle it again. Each time we approach another form of the same problem, it may feel like stepping in the same place. But actually, our way toward solution is like walking up the spiral: we are on the same line, but on the higher point. The closer we get to the solution, life will expose us to the same problem less frequently, we will recognize problem more easily and get out of it faster. We will be less attached to the problem and the self-pity of the Ego who keeps repeating “how unlucky we are”.
