Today I came across this interesting proverb.
If a man fools me once, shame on him. If he fools me twice, shame on me. ~ Chinese Proverb
It makes me think a little more…
How much of experiences does one need to help learn from making mistakes?
Till we use our mistakes as stepping stones to success.
If there is a surefire way to surf through life without issues…
It is in the ability to take the self lightly!
To realise what seems like a big issue today may seem very insignificant in time.
How much does one depend on the armour of God to help in tiding through lifes crisis?
In sensing that faith is all there is…
There is a knowing that there is always hope beyond despair.
How can we learn to see through the facades?
In understanding that there is more to seeing beyond the looking.
How can we protect ourselves from being conned?
In trusting the self before all else!
Does loneliness or loss and the ensuing vulnerability make one a target or a victim?
It depends on ones perspective of life .
For in the loneliness there is a opportunity for self awareness
And our strengths can emanate from our vulnerabilities.
How to keep the spirit calm, collected & contented ?
In witnessing the world while breathing deeply and bringing our awareness to the now…
And how can we learn to take responsibility for our errors of judgment?
In knowing we have the power of choice with us! And remember to think well and choose equally well!.
