Here is an excerpt from my book, The Silent Master: Awakening the Power Within:
In this example, you can see how all the events taken by themselves are neither good nor bad even though you may judge them so. They are simply a series of events leading in a certain direction, and all judgments of good or bad are totally irrelevant in the long run. Losing your job in the beginning was “not a mistake because it ultimately opened you to the business you always wanted.
How much time we waste in fretting over our mistakes! All this does is keep us dwelling on the past, and this brings the unwanted past into the present.
How important it is, then, when you’re ready to pursue your Silent Master consciousness, to let go of your mistakes, and use your will to focus on a new direction. Look at your mistakes, see what you learned, but then let them go.
