To commit a mistake is not wrong – commit as many mistakes as possible because that is the way you will be learning more. But don’t commit the same mistakes again and again, because that makes you stupid.
While Osho is a bit blunt in his words, they hold some truth. But let’s throw out the word stupid. Let’s throw out the negative connotation of [continuous] mistakes. Are not we all on our own path? Are not we all learning at our own pace? Who’s to say that a continuous mistake is wrong when we learn the right in the end? In hindsight we can see where our path took a wrong turn, but can we argue that turn was necessary regardless of its time or the time it took to understand?
A perspective shift is in order for the word mistake and the action of making a mistake.
Why are mistakes considered wrong?
Why can’t we see within the moment that “wrongs” can actually turn into a future “right”?
Those very mistakes that we perceive to yield [temporary] failure can lead us to [eternal] success.
Everything that occurs is a culmination of perfection.
There are no wrongs. There are no mistakes.
With that mentality you don’t have to make a mistake ever again.
With that mentality you can only experience success.
