The pursuit of sacred purpose is a process of peeling back the layers that we have subconsciously built up to protect ourselves from the bad, which has also kept out the good. More importantly, it has kept in the goodness of our essence--keeping it hidden, constricted and unexpressed. With layers peeled back, however, we arrive at center--our sweet spot of blissful authenticity.
When it comes to failure, believe me when I say that I've had my fair share. The challenge, however, is how we acknowledge that we're in the valley of calamity--whether we react out of the ego or respond in the Spirit.
So, how can you find redemption in the "F" word when you can't even acknowledge it? When all you feel is shame? When you are too busy denying it to take advantage of the opportunity to learn any lessons from it? The answer is plain and simple...YOU CAN'T. You can't find redemption in what you do not acknowledge, cannot accept, and as a result will not grow from. I know this for a fact.
