Learning from Life and Moving On
When you go through the process of spiritual development, it is not always a guaranteed success at the start. There are many times that a person will fail but it is in getting back up that he gets courage and determination to withstand whatever situation he has to face in the future.
If you are on this journey, it is very important to have the will to achieve your goal – of being independent, free, and empowered as well. It takes a little hard work to achieve this as well as some patience. Even though the path you will be taking will have some bumps ahead, you must bear in mind that everything will end soon enough and if you focus your mind to it, you should not notice that you have already reached your goal.
It is then important that each time you fail and make a mistake; you learn to accept that you also have some limitations in you. You cannot be perfect but you are trying to be the best that you can be. When you make mistakes, which are often inevitable at the start, it is normal to feel sad and a little depressed. However, this failure should not be a reason for you to sulk and even regress and go back to your old ways. Instead, you should use it as a stepping-stone so that you can move on further to your spiritual goal.
When you become successful in this journey, it should feel very pleasant and light. You have reached your goal because of all your hard work and your determination. Courage is also important so that you can bravely face your shortcomings and learn to accept it. Flaws are a part of who a person is and it cannot be avoided that he has one however, it should not be a hindrance as to why he could not move on to his goal.
