Other people’s mistakes

Hands up who has never made a mistake?

Yep, everyone put their hand up.

Yet we are always looking to blame others, judge people, point the finger and punish them for their mistakes. Catch them out, almost waiting to jump on another for messing up.

The reality is, we are in fact only looking at our own reflection. Judging ourselves.

Mistakes have already happened, so right now they are in the past, let go of them and let go of others mistakes too.

It’s very liberating and we can act without the cloud of blame to learn and move on.

Desperate to be right

It’s funny, when we are engaged with the mind, the ego takes over, and the ‘red mist’ descends and we are unable to be calm. We will go to almost any lengths to find evidence to be right about something and prove others wrong.

We will relish the opportunity to force our views on others and then, if we are correct, we will then go to the same means to tell others that we were right, relishing saying ‘I told you so’.

Mad isn’t it. In a conscious awake state, what does it matter?

A peaceful life comes from accepting our views are just that and it does not matter whether we are right or wrong. Life is better when we let go.
