Today I am thinking of the concept of “Mistakes”. I see so many posts on Facebook, daily affirmations, and articles about releasing the past mistakes we have made and forgiving ourselves for said mistakes. “Mistake” is not a word that is a part of my vocabulary. Perhaps this just my own ego talking, or my own illusion; however, I feel that the opposite is true. I feel that my soul knows that the notion of a “mistake” is an illusion created by judgment of the ego.
We are beautiful souls given the opportunity to have a human experience on this amazing earth. We are part of the infinite, magnificent whole. Serving Purpose is our reason for being. If we stray away from of our piece of the whole, our individual path to the whole, we will be presented with a learning experience so that we can grow in love and light. If we continue to follow the same patterns we have created within our human selves that are not serving the whole or Purpose, we will continue to cycle back through the same or similar experiences until we learn the lesson being presented.
This is not a “Mistake”, but a lesson, a teacher, a guide to direct us on our path to Purpose. If we look at our lessons as “Mistakes”, then we have to go through a long and painful cycle of forgiveness of ourselves. If we remove judgment and look at these experiences with a witnessing eye rather than a judgmental eye, we will clearly see the lesson and move along our path to Purpose without all of the emotional turmoil that “Mistakes” can cause. Happy Learning!
