The patience the Spirit shows toward one Soul is the same patience it shows toward all souls. It doesn’t favor one over the other. Nor does it favor the path of education that each chooses to take. After all, every incarnation is a piece of a bigger picture – that of creation. To the Spirit, every path the Soul chooses to travel is a good one, whether it be in the steps of a madman or those of a saint. Every form that it takes is sacred; each brimming with insight. Each and every Soul has a legitimate claim to be right where it is, learning, as it may be, knee deep in mistakes.
It is our mind’s lack of recognition of the Soul, and its mission, that causes us to judge the paths of others so harshly. We count their mistakes against them like they really mean something in the big scheme of things. But from a spiritual perspective, mistakes are a valued commodity because they lead to insight. Each represents a sign post, of which without them, a Soul would never find its way home. A Soul that has witnessed a ton of mistakes through its incarnations is a rich Soul indeed. It indicates that it has traveled many roads to get to where it is at and has gained much wisdom along the way. “All roads lead to Rome” as the saying goes. In the case of the Soul, they all lead to higher consciousness.
