Mind stuck on a past action regret
Posted: Sun May 13, 2018 11:55 pm
It's the college admission/enrolment/ rejection season in US. I am struggling with my son's waitlisting and rejection from his dream school due to what my mind believes is my stupidity during the application process. It has got me into intense suffering and unacceptable mode. In my 13 years of practice of Eckhart's teachings, they seem to be failing me for the first time. I can't forgive myself or my past momentary mistake (if it was a mistake). I have always able to get past much more serious issues in life through practising acceptance and surrender. Why is it failing me now ? Any advise, input or help would be greatly appreciated. I am in deep pain and suffering due to a relatively trivial issue, but can't find a way out !
