There are no events; only processes, and faster processes. Things take time. Like learning Spanish, for instance. Or English, for that matter. Like so, but more importantly, are things of the Gospel; they are learned, and applied, progressively, rather than instantaneously.
And indeed, that is what this life is all about; becoming like God, through experiences and learning we can only attain outside of His divine presence (Doctrine and Covenants 67:12). As we press forward in the process of life, through this medium we know as time, the Lord will bless us equal to our challenges and efforts. May we keep our process of becoming celestial beings moving forward, day by day, at an ever-increasing rate, until we are one day admitted into His presence.
