Once we become aware of this chatter, and look at it as if we were an uninterested third party, we can begin to evaluate whether we want to own those thoughts or just love them free.
Many times we look back on a situation or situations in our lives and harshly judge ourselves. We may be filled with regret and remorse over our actions. We feel we have made a big MISTAKE. Many people cannot forgive themselves of the mistake(s) they see in their lives.
Let's talk about the television and film industry as a way to see this all a bit more clearly. When a network or production company is filming a show, even a half-hour show, they easily spend hours filming. They have "take1", "take2", "take3", etc. They keep doing the scene over and over until it is the way they want it to be.
I contend that we can forgive and heal from this event if we see it not as a "mistake" but as a "mis-take" (take1, take2, take3, etc.). The only mistake there can truly be on our part is when we know there are negative ramifications to self/others from our behaviors and we choose them anyway. To take this a step deeper, while we may have progressed in our own spiritual growth to that point at which we would not judge another person, we are quick to judge ourselves. When we see that we are most likely not the same person now that we were when we made this so-called "poor decision", we can hopefully see how unfair we are being to ourselves. We can find a space of love and compassion from which to regard ourselves.
Life is filled with lessons, mis-takes if you will. If we are able to see on 'take1" that the behavior did not serve us and others well, we can easily move to "take2", making a decision that's largely guided by how "take1" went, and know "it's a wrap". However, some times we fail to know or recognize that "take1" could have been better. Some time passes and then we are faced with "take2", "take3" and so on. Once we recognize the lessons and rise to the opportunities to make decisions that better serve others and ourselves, "it's a wrap" and those challenges/lessons no longer stare us in the face.
It is also my KNOWING that these mis-takes are best viewed as gifts. They have brought us to be at this point in which we see that we want to do things differently. Embrace them. Love yourself for growing to the point of seeing things from a different, more expansive perspective. I believe this statement bears repeating ...
The only mistake there can truly be on our part is when we know there are negative ramifications to self/others from our behaviors and we choose them anyway.
