Mistakes! by Keshav | Mar 27, 2021 | Insights | 7 commentsMistakes are stepping stones.7 Comments sasanijjs on March 26, 2021 at 6:33 PM As I’ve become more aware of my “Joeness”, I recognize the opportunity to stop beating the crap out of myself for thoughts or qualities that I know are not me. My choice to circle in suffering is a choice to identify with those mistakes instead of being present in the eternal moment. I can see “Joeness” as the breadcrumbs home if I’m willing to not take myself seriously. Either way, freedom seems to always be ringing her bell. Braveheart on March 26, 2021 at 8:09 PM Mistakes, like stepping stones, often take me just far away to see a situation from a different perspective. Often noticing things I wouldn’t have seen otherwise. Keshav Howe on March 27, 2021 at 7:03 AM Great insights! Betty on March 27, 2021 at 3:06 PM I learn from my mistakes. In that way they lead me closer to truth. Keshav Howe on March 27, 2021 at 3:18 PM I tried to talk someone out of making a mistake that was very familiar to me. I was also aware that my counsel was falling on deaf ears. I am very grateful that I remembered this quote. missy on March 30, 2021 at 6:15 AM Mmmm I love mistakes as stepping stones as creativity… I don’t call them that anymore, because I often love them so much for showing up! Keshav, I believe we hear what you or others say, it’s just that we are not ready to. For me it gets tucked away, never forgotten and perhaps that is one of my stones to come across later to trip over and be reminded! Oh yea, you again! I stubbed my toes a lot going barefoot growing up and I wanted to, I stopped wearing shoes once it got warm, to toughen my feet for summer on the sharp driveway gravel. Little did I know the true meaning.. Namaste. Diane on April 2, 2021 at 5:49 AM When the "I" is in separation I am having a mistaken identity crisis. Recognizing it when it happens as a stepping stone to waking up to the truth of "I am" is wonderful. How can mistakes be anything other than stepping stones to the truth of who I am.
