Courage to admit own mistakes

 

 

Sometimes we are not aware
Of the consequences of our words and deeds
When we notice them,
Often it is already too late…
Then we get stuck in our own pride

With courage and confession
To be responsible for own mistakes
The rudder can still be pulled around

So we have to make peace with ourselves
To be in peace with others…

It is never too late for that…

  1. Dear Didi β€” This is beautiful, my friend, and such an important message! Apologizing sooner is better than later, but later is better than never. Late apologies can help to repair old wounds and, even if the person to whom we apologize does not remember our regrettable word or deed, we can free ourselves of the weight of carrying that regret, so that we can live lighter and more present in each moment today.
    Sending love and light, jen

      Your words are a good addition to my poem and give courage to those who are still in debt to another human being. Furthermore, it is a help to overcome our false pride in such matters.
      Warm hugs and much love to you, my friend
      From heart to heart

  3. As humans, sometimes we commit mistake just inadvertently, but wisdom is to realize our folly and not to repeat the same mistake. Regards.

    • Thank your very much, dear Harbhans,
      Indeed, when we are aware of our thoughts, deeds, and words, knowing that everything in a wrong
      direction has its bitter consequences, then we start to learn, because we already have many times tasted
      the bitter medicine. So wisdom and consciousness go hand in hand and the deeper we dig in us, the more mistakes
      will come to light, will be aware to us. This is the process of: “Man know thyself…” and it returns to us as digested lessons…

      Thank your for your support, dear friend πŸ™‚

      • Didi sir, you are absolutely correct. Our words, thoughts and deeds are responsible for our present state and future things to come. We ought to take the experiences of the people as a guide for leading our lives. Though our path is littered with sharp stones and thorns yet i we have total control over our senses and mind then we can attain something tangible.

        WITH WARM REGARDS

          When following the foot prints of the competent Masters we will make their experiences to ours. Only when we experience their experiences not only the higher values of life can be attained but also the hidden values of life, then also we are able to solve the riddle of life and death. Seeing is believing…

          Wishing you all that is good for your and your family, my friend πŸ™‚

          • Yes Didi sir, our revered GURUs are the torch bearers and are ocean of knowledge, we get some drops from this reservoir. For this, we have to have patience, tolerance and enough of humbleness, then only we can get knowledge with which we can remove our IGNORANCE.

            • One thing is a matter of life and death: we must be sure that our Master is a competent Master, if He can bring us above our body-consiousness, if He can give us a first-hand experience of the beyond (not astral or causal plane), then we can be sure and surrender our life into the hand of such a gracious Master who Himself is the mouth-piece of God (as no ego and mind is left in such real Guru) – so-called master can bring us up to their own level which reaches not beyond the causal plan/dimension – we have to know even the difference between the experiences made of the astral/causal plane and the one which lies on the 5 plane, Sach Khand, a place of pure consciousness without dust and matter.

              Indeed, dear friend Harbhans, patience, tolerance and contentment and a simple life are tools that help us to develop on the spiritual path. Love and receptivity must be developed to embrace the creator, to have love for all and everything.

              We need to empty ourselves from ourselves and He can enter this void and emptiness in us…

              Thank you, my friend πŸ™‚
              All the best to you and yours

              • Yes Didi sir, the main purpose is to come out our body-consciousness and this to be reality, we have to have some venerable ONE who could direct us whenever we take a wrong step. A person is fortunate if he gets a right MASTER.

                The tools of patience, patience and satiety are essential tools which we can imbibe in us by experiencing various aspects in our lives.

                • My Master said: “There is maybe one 1 true Master in a Billion…” – and now this power is working directly, God Himself is working directly in this Golden Age and no living Master is needed as the competent Masters are dependent of the instructions God is giving them. They were necessary in the Iron Age, but now God is working directly – He has no-one above Him to give instructions, but it is only He who gives now the instructions as everything is in His hands. Before this time He commissioned the Masters to work in His name.

                  Only a few knew who Sant Kirpal Singh or Kabir Sahib or Guru Nanak really is.

                  Thank you, my dear friend πŸ™‚
                  Warm regards

                  • MASTER’S VOICE is really empowering and filled with eternal wisdom.

                    God gives us His bounties provided we do our KARMA righteously and with complete surrender.

                    Thank you so very much for enlightening me on so many aspects touching our lives

    • Thank you very much, dear friend πŸ™‚

      Here we have to be careful too, when I write in the end “It is never too late for that…” then our mind again can abuse these words and again may interfere with: Ok, when it is never too late, then I have time enough – I postpone it for tomorrow, or for the next or the next year… this is a trick of the mind, we have to understand. No-one knows when we have to leave the body, it could be today, could be tomorrow or next month, next year etc… However, what is sure, is our present doing. In starting to change ourself which does not cost money, but honesty and own sweat without hesitation, will throw away opportunities that may come up only one time (as we never can be sure of it) – in this way, every moment becomes precious, makes us aware how valuable used time is. A student going to the university would not pass his tests when time for learning would be wasted, then he has to repeat. And our life is very short to prepare ourselves to past the test of rising above the body-consciousness. Therefore, our yearning should grow with every day, yearning to solve the mystery of life and death, our purpose of life.

      Stay safe and healthy, my friend πŸ™‚
      Didi
