Mistakes
    #3634260 - 01/16/05 07:11 AM (11 years, 10 months ago)

They're easy to make arent they! Mistakes arent really the problem, everybody make them and hopefully everybody learns from them. The only problems that arise when making mistakes is when we ignore them, and follow our ego's into the area of judgement and blame, nopt wanting to admit our mistakes make us more likely to make further mistakes more frequently!

It true that if we make mistakes and recognise them, their is a possiblilty for growth. But if somebody even after you have recognised and admitted a mistake, kicks you while your down, that is a mistake with them that you have the obligation to point out. Or am i mistaken?

growth in disguise
point it out once or twice.. then ignore it
if you use your energry to try to make them change
it will be another mistake

So are you suggesting that one should just ignore there kicks, and continue without pointing out there mistake. If they pointed out my mistakes, arent i obligated to point out there's. Because if i do not point out there mistakes then i would be seriously lacking in compassion, and they would continue to make those mistakes in the future without ever realizing that what they were doing was a mistake.

Or again am i mistaken?

say you point out the same mistake many times to one person
how many times before you give up
youve already pointed it out on a few occasions in a few diff ways
the ball is now in thier court
to change
if they choose not too
it is time for you to ignore thier mistakes
and move on

this seems to be a plea for political support for a comback in some arena.
or
a latent need to be the teacher.

I reccommend that, what ever the problem(s) has been, the parties move on, heal, progress into new space without strings of karmic residue.

You have no idea what your talking about, the mistakes i am referring to occur regulaly in the arena of my daily life. I was seeking clarification on a point i have struggled with for a while, and i have no latent desire or need to become a teacher of any kind.

What political support were you refering to, im not running for president!  :smile:

I am forever a student beginning on the path of sanity.

I still reccommend not expanding the scope of this karma, i.e. drop it.
and yes I have no clue what you are talking about. I reccommend not explaining it too.

it is a most terrific opportunitie to learn detatchment. (thank me later, don't react now)

in the mind you can approach something due to interest,
try to move away, however, and like alice in wonderland you find yourself drawn in and getting ever closer to what you would like to avoid.

learning to let go of something is the biggest mind lesson possible

I had no intention of explaining it, because it was a general remark and not specific to any event in particular. Because i lead quite a quiet life, although i regulaly make mistakes, i rarely have to deal with the mistakes of others.

When this happens in my daily life, it catches me off guard and i am unsure of how to react. Should i keep clarifying the other persons mistake to the point of causing offence, or should i make few remarks and move on, not putting myself in the direct line of verbal assault? Im starting to feel that its the latter.

Your recommendations are greatly welcomed, and i appreciate your view on the oppertunity for detachment, that was spot on :wink:

Getting drawn in by people is a mistake i do occasionally make, and i should really learn to say fewer words and let things go more.

Anyways just more teachings to assimilate! Thanx for the advice man. M

Much appreciated  :wink:
