Life is a real school
People should learn to understand their dual nature, understand and forgive each other’s mistakes in such a way as if they themselves were learning this lesson and as if this were happening exactly to them. To err is human. However, spiritually strong people not only acknowledge their mistakes, but they can also learn from them. They have the courage and patience to realise the mistakes made and fix them if possible. One should not be unhappy about what cannot be repaired. But you should double your efforts in what will unfailingly bring spiritual joy not only to you but to other people as well. Life is a real school, where mistakes are lessons, and the gained experience – a mentor.
As they say, a smooth sea does not make a skilled sailor. Once he gains Wisdom, thanks to the spiritual experience, the person begins to steer his ship confidently and purposefully in the midst of a raging ocean of life, avoiding mistakes of the past, not allowing the elements of the past to toss him from side to side, causing inner conflicts. As sages of the ancient times said, holding life’s steering wheel in the raging ocean of life requires, first of all, spiritual work on oneself. For such a brave person who steers his ship through the storm of life’s elements, sooner or later a day will come when a completely different, spiritual, pure world, which he has not previously known within himself, will open to his inner eye. This world begets peace in the Soul and allows Wisdom to emerge victorious out of the elements of matter and moor on the shore of Eternity.
