Let’s experiment

It’s all an experiment. Some things will work out, and some things will not. The sooner we become aware of this, the easier life becomes. Unfortunately, it took me 60 years to realize this truth. It was only about a year ago when it finally sank in. I learned that nothing has to be perfect in this life. This life is merely a trial run for the next one. Every time we reincarnate, we become wiser, not just as individuals but as a whole. For instance, Max Planck discovered quantum physics more than a century ago in the 1900s. It took time for people to experiment with the concept before it became a natural thought process. Before this theory, unforeseen results would have been labeled as miracles. However, the gap between science and source is getting smaller every day.

 Get out of your comfort zone

Knowing these facts, I am willing to experiment in this lifetime. I am aware that I am more powerful than I am expressing. Marianne Williamson’s quote states it perfectly:

“Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.”

We want everyone to feel comfortable around us, so we hide our power unless we are around others who know their strength. However, I want to be an example, not conventional. Imagine a world where the Wright brothers didn’t experiment. They didn’t even have parachutes!

 Failure is a mindset

By approaching life as an experiment, I have less fear of failure. Failure is merely a procedure I tried that didn’t work. Like Thomas Edison said, “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work,” and, “There are no rules here — we’re trying to accomplish something.” I would have loved to have met him.”
