Leave yourself alone a little bit. I ask you to stop picking on yourself for every little thing you do or every little thing you don’t do or don’t do perfectly.
Accept the ordinariness of imperfection in the world. You are not separate from anyone else.
Everyone has bungled more than once. You are good, and let your goodness be the star you follow. You do not have to be perfection, not in terms of the world, you don’t.
In Heaven, you leave fault behind you. Faults find no haven in Heaven. You are not in Heaven to review your faults, nor are you on Earth to go over a litany of faults, as if you are to make a collection of them. Faults aren’t Truth. Oh, the world may say so. The world primarily can see only one side of the coin. The side of that coin that the world typically sees is named facts.
The concrete world is made of boundedness whereas you are made of boundlessness.
Listen, living in a bounded world is going to make you strong. When you find yourself in a pit, you have no choice but to climb out.
You are not meant to flagellate yourself as if a whipping will make you strong and teach you something. You are not a miscreant, beloveds. You do not have to absolve yourself for living your life as best you know how to at a particular moment. You make some mistakes, no doubt. That was then, and this is now. Now you don’t look back.
You are growing every minute. You are going to soar. You can and will astound yourself with all the hidden treasure you are. You must know by now that all treasure lies within you.
Don’t delve into mistakes. I have asked you to let go of the past. To let go means the opposite of to lasso. Do not hog-tie yourself and attempt to score a brand on you. Don’t fixate on yourself. You are not the King of Faults. You’re really not.
Look at your strengths, and you will multiply them. Look at your supposed weaknesses, and you will multiply them the same. The world has a direct objectivity that it is quite proud of. In terms of yourself, you’re either in or out in terms of the world. You are always in with Me.
Just a little turn of the dial. Take a peek from another angle. You’re not done yet.
I already have mentioned the story of the little lame boy. He could not run and play like the other boys. Because he couldn’t run away, he had to stand his ground. Being lame turned out to be a great blessing for him. His supposed weakness made him strong.
Everyone has lessons to learn, and learn you will. You are learning now. Sooner or later, you will catch on. You will get it “right,” even as your “right” may not look like everyone else’s “right.”
This is one reason why you do not want to judge. You may think you know, yet you don’t know. You do not know enough. You may in all sincerity believe you are right, yet you may well be missing the point. Whenever you feel fired up, most likely, you are missing the point.
Aha, by missing the point is also another way you learn. Humility is one way you learn.
There are a multitude of ways you learn. Part of learning is also unlearning. You grow to new dimensions in your perception. In any case, you do not stay the same as you always were or thought you were, for you are ever growing anew.
