What is victory without failing, for the sweetness of taste surely arises from the taste of bitterness that precedes it in failing.
To be victorious in an endeavour, we must know how it is to embody the greatness that arises from the victory. To fully embody this sense of order, we must first taste the misery that arises from failing, for one cannot taste or even know the sweetness of success, without having first tasted the bitterness of failing.
The two poles of the greater paradox are from the same spectrum. Failing and victory are part of the greater whole, and this journey we call life cannot exist without duality of senses, and perceptions. The wheel of karma that determines fate, can too be shattered through our perception and realisation of the existence to this greater dualistic whole. When we stop perceiving experiences as victory or failing, we begin to rise beyond karmic retributions that lock us in a wheel of repetition and suffering. The human conditioned mind is plagued with victory and failing that causes entire belief systems to be created in their name and pain.
When we hold truth to both sides being equally distributed as an experience, rather than a validation, we begin to steer and lead a life that is joyful despite conditioned projections. Rather, we become the master of our journey, rather than the passive observer and victim of circumstance. What is but the truth be known, that life is an extension of our perception, and our fortune, and misfortune, are all interictally woven by the sheer force of our projection upon the material manifestation. Projection that is so deeply imbued with conditions laid upon our mind and hearts by society and culture. We are spellbound to view victory as success, and failings as misfortune and worthlessness. Yet, when we view the cycle as a greater whole, we extend beyond the conditioned hypnotic cultural trance, and we begin to enjoy and revel in this marvellous journey of expansion and growth. This journey we know as life.
