Mistakes are merely teaching
and learning opportunities.
When the shame and guilt we cultivate because of our errors create more mistakes they gain momentum. Instead of growing from our mistakes, we let them diminish us. And so our relationships with others are likewise diminished.
We can instantly halt the momentum, however, that's the Promise Jesus has made us. But how do we do it? The decision to look upon every circumstance through the loving eyes of the inner Spirit helps us resist the knee-jerk response we've grown accustomed to making. Until we experiment with this change, we can't imagine the results.
The holy Inner Voice has only soft, understanding words to offer in even the most difficult of times. Being soothed through the mindfield makes us appreciate the opportunities we have for listening to others.
I will look upon my struggles today
as opportunities to hear
the Holy Spirit's message.
