Room to Make Mistakes

June 25, 2010

There seems to be no end to doing things wrong, messing things up all the time.We are sort of trapped in that kind of negative "oy vey" situation. On the other hand, very interestingly, there is lots of room to make mistakes. That's true, absolutely true. But such room for mistakes cannot be created unless there is surrendering, giving, some kind of opening. If we can give away our aggression or attempt to give it away, if we attempt to open up and to strip away our territoriality and possessiveness—then there is lots of room for making mistakes.
