There Is No Wrong Way

What happens when we do something that is “wrong” for us? If we are supposed to stay on this “spiritual path”, how do we fix those unfortunate times when we find ourselves derailed because we made the wrong decision?

Nothing is wrong for us. There are only shorter or longer paths or easier or harder ways we choose. They are never wrong. The paths we choose simply determine whether we get the lessons sooner or later.

In the end, we are all going to get the same lessons. Everyone graduates. Some of us are still repeating third grade, others are already in college. We might graduate while we are still alive on earth, while others will graduate in another lifetime or on the other side.

I believe that the path through life is neutral and without judgement. Do not concern yourself with the yardstick of progress. Most of us are awkwardly zig-zagging our way toward graduation anyway.

If we did everything “right”, we would miss out on the richness of the experiences that enable us to fully and deeply understand the lessons themselves. Unfortunately, only by totally messing things up (over and over again) do we truly gain the full wisdom of each lesson given to us.

So have fun with it. Your greatest wisdom and spiritual growth comes from the areas where you messed up most. Which is exactly why it is impossible for you to ever do the wrong thing.
