Success comes from experience and experience comes from bad experiences
We all have had that one bad experience which helped us to get closer to ourselves. Have you read about Yin & Yang? Or how opposites compliment each other? If you haven’t read about them then go on and read the whole article, you will love it. You will learn why Success Comes from Experience and Experience Comes from Bad Experiences…
Yin & Yang
I’m a believer of Yin and Yang. I believe what Yin & Yang describes how opposite or contrary forces are actually complementary, interconnected, and interdependent in the natural world, and how they give rise to each other as they interrelate to one another. Isn’t It so obvious that there can’t be a day without night or cold without hot? Well, it’s only obvious if you have not understood it. If I ask you the opposite of Cold, you will readily say Hot. But does it really the opposite of cold or it is complementary to cold. Now, if you will understand the dynamics of things then you will understand that it is not at all obvious. You see, cold is not the opposite of ‘hot’, in fact cold cannot exist without hot. Similarly, each and every aspect of life is Yin and Yang. It’s a law of duality (for instance, a day cannot exist without night). Watch this wonderful video explaining about Yin and Yang…
Now, look back in life and think of all the decisions that you made and what is the consequences of that decision would have been. What would have happened if you would have elected for a different decision. The answer is that every yin has a seed of yang and you would have ended in the same place where you are now, only the experience would have been different. Because this is the basic construct of our world we live in.
Again, if you have understood the concept of Yin and Yang, even slightly, then you will see that there’s nothing like a bad experience or a good experience. Each experience is equal. If you remove any one pillar the other one falls automatically. It is the illusion of life. Infact, illusion itself is nothing but the reality in a different form. You remove one thing and the other one vanishes automatically. The bad experiences are the Yin in your life. Every yin has a seed of yang inside it. If you have had bad experiences, then it is simply because of the dynamics of our world. Our world knows how to balance things in all aspects. The important thing is what you gained from it. That very thing will help you curate the purpose of your life.
At last, the only thing that values is your purpose for life. Have you acquired the sufficient knowledge that will help you to understand your true purpose of life. Each individual is here to fulfil a special purpose and if you are not contributing towards it then you will have to take another life. Bhagwad Geeta depicts it wonderfully the struggles an individual has to undergo when embarking on a spiritual journey. Some of these struggles are related to one’s faith and the other to one’s determination to continue. For spiritual progress to be steady, we will need to follow one final piece of advice:
“You have to let it all go, fear, doubt, and disbelief. Only then you will realize the true meaning of your life”.
I don’t know if you liked the article or not or understood what I was trying to convey. I’m on a quest of spiritual journey myself. I try to learn as much as I can get. This is my first article on this vast topic. It is really easy to read but takes years to understand and lifetime to practice.
If you have any advice on spirituality or you have some different perception towards it, then please share it here with me… I would love to hear from you.
