Sometimes in life, people make mistakes, learn their lesson then move on. Chestnut Bud appears in our reading today to say at other times, we fail to learn lessons and continually make the same mistakes. This is an unhealthy and destructive pattern that results in stagnation and failure to grow or move forward. Spirit is asking us to do a quick inventory and see if there are any situations in our lives we repeat. If we are always ending up in the same place, it's because we haven't learned to travel in a different direction. Many of us continue driving down a dead-end street trying to get to a different destination. It simply will not happen.
In order to reach our goals, we have to map out the correct course. When we take a wrong turn, we must receive the information with self-awareness and admit that we made a mistake. Then we start over and follow the map correctly. If we continue to follow the same wrong path, we will never reach our goal.
How many times have you found yourself in the same situation? They say the definition of insanity is doing the same thing repeatedly and expecting a different result. If you continue to find yourself in the same situation, then it is time to make some necessary changes.
Chestnut Bud comes in today to say don't be afraid to course correct. Yes, you will first need to accept your mistake with humility, receive information to help you find your path, and then course correct but what is the alternative? Are you going to stay stuck and stagnant because your pride is too great?
There can be a sense of failure experienced by those who don't want to recognize their mistakes and begin again. You must not look at your past mistakes as failures but as grand opportunities to start over. Ask yourself how wonderful you will feel once you course correct and start moving forward in life. There is nothing to be gained from staying stuck in limiting situations that leave you feeling trapped, unable to move freely, and living without joy. You are a wonderful, magical creature who deserves to enjoy life to the fullest. It's time to break free from the things that have you bound, trapped, and stuck. Move forward in joy, happiness, and freedom. You deserve it!
