For every act of evil, there is an act of beauty. You Can't Change the World, Only Your Attitude Towards It.

Failure is the mother of success

Over on Daily Cup of Tao I said:

"Attempting perfection, you show all your faults.
Accepting your faults, is perfection.
Aiming to please, failure.
Being, easy."

If you're always trying to be right then wrong is hard. It you're always trying hard not to fail, then failure is tough.

A useful meditation then is one of acceptance of this point:

I will not always be right, often I will be wrong.
I will not always do things well, often I will mess up.
But it is true that I will not always get things wrong,
and things will work out just right.
When I am truly honest I see that I have no control either way; I could only have done what I'd done, I will only ever do whatever it is I will do, I can only do right now what it is I'm doing.

Want life to be different? It can't be. It is this.

That is why: "You can not change the world, you can only change your attitude towards it."
