I believe there are no mistakes in life, only roads taken out of fear or needing to learn something you don’t currently know. There is no one tidy process to learning, but we can ease the learning curve greatly by creating an attitude of curiosity verses judgement. Study books, ask advice, and question yourself often, encountering all the ¨wrong¨ situations until you become so refined at learning one of life’s first lessons. Yes or No. It takes great skill to hone your discernment and learn over time when you firmly mean either.
During this process, you may realize what works in one moment, may not in another, so be prepared to allow for the idea of mistakes. No time is wasted when you consider that growth is inevitable, and grappling with how you would like it to look, often hinders the natural flow of events.
If along our journey we cease to create space for the aftermath of ¨mistakes”, we may deny ourselves some necessary healing, which often shows up again to address. Quite often during practice we are shown some aspect of ourselves we had no idea was so relevant in our current lives.
You can never truly realize what it is you seek without mistakes. No natural wonder, religion or great figure became so without being refined by time and adaptation, both qualities we must allow to happen through us, verses to us.
