When we fail it is only because we were expecting a certain result.
Failure is something that we avoid. This is often because we equate the feeling of failure with feeling unloved. When we succeed we feel loved. But are we looking outside of ourselves for this love and success, so we see failure as another reason not to love ourselves?
If we are to live in the present moment and not focus on the future or the past, then we cannot fail. When we strive for goals that are specific in a future time then we expect these results to occur because we work towards them always with our eyes on the future. Sometimes the hard work and single-minded determination can work to achieve these goals, but as the soul leads the way, this is not possible anymore. We cannot override the soul with 3d grit and determination and control.
Instead the soul nudges us, the soul guides us to look at our outside life for clues to what still needs to processed and healed within us so that we can embody soul deeper and deeper.
Therefore these supposed failings, are just ways we can look within and love ourselves more. Signposts as to not what we think our mind wants, but what our soul needs. The soul thinks bigger than our human minds could ever hope to do. What the soul needs is not always what the mind thinks it wants for this physical existence.
The challenge is to work with the goals, desires, opportunities without pushing, forcing or manipulating from a mind/ego perspective, but to feel our way forward with the wisdom of the higher mind urging us to stop or move forward, and ever trusting that the soul-purpose way of living is for our higher good in ways that our human mind has never experienced before and ways that we could never imagine in our wildest human dreams would be possible for us.
As more of our soul is allowed to enter our body and mingle with our choices, then our physical lives and realities will start to show the evidence of this new world and new human and new way of living. It takes time, and there is always the pull and push to return to the ways of old as it is all around us, goading us and urging us to stay in this way of doing and thinking.
But if you are ready to try something new, just simply invite the wisdom of your soul and higher mind to lead you, to show you and inch you forward on this new path. Remember that it may not be what your lower human mind thinks will happen as this mind is ground in habit and ritual and past actions and results, this is a whole new way that has never been tried or tested before. Slowly and surely we can all live a soul inspired life in the flow of universal life and all be surprised and amazed by what this truly looks like in a physical life.
We will never “fail” again….
I believe that knowing who we are at our unique soul level holds the key to living an authentic and joyful life. Once we know who we are, we can begin to BE who we are, and then BECOME who we were always destined to be.
