“From the perspective of the soul, there are no failures or mistakes, only experiences.”
The first part of the year is the perfect time for reflection and considering possibilities. Now, you might be contemplating action. But… What if something doesn’t work out and you experience a failure? This thought keeps many a person sitting at home watching reality TV.
Before extending your tenure on the couch, there is something to think about. As Robert Schwartz explains in Your Soul’s Gift, we are on this earth plane to advance our soul’s awakening; to learn lessons; to heal our soul. What if, at the end of our life, that quality of experience holds more importance than what others think of us? More than the amount of money we make? More than being safe?
Maybe it’s time for some growth. Soul growth.

And when we commit to taking action, it’s all a victory.”
