- There are no “mistakes” only different varieties of ways to experience life and remember more of who we are. We make choices based on our past, our belief systems, our values, and perhaps even the collective consciousness that’s engrained in our DNA. We always choose what we believe is the best possible choice in any given situation. Instead of directing our energy toward the past by beating ourselves up over “mistakes,” why not ask, “What is the lesson? What can be learned from this experience?” – IPEC core principle
What are your thoughts about this idea/principle?
When I first heard this principle I don’t think I fully understood it. I still don’t think I completely understand it, but I am realizing more and more each day that there are really no mistakes…we simply choose what we feel is the best choice in any given moment. A mistake is the judgment we put on the choice we make.
Releasing the judgment is a very freeing feeling. Doing this allows me to focus on the lesson I can learn from my choices instead of beating myself up over the “mistake” I made
What would your life look like if you did the same?
