    Stim Morane: there is no way we can find our more fundamental nature, without taking advantage of our mistakes
    Stim Morane: they are our guide
    Caledonia Heron: perhaps
    Stim Morane: you have a different view?
    Caledonia Heron: it is a corporate knowledge of sorts
    Gaya Ethaniel: there is something i feel/have inside that guides me which is not mistakes i’ve made
    Stim Morane: Yes, Gaya. I didn’t mean to suggest that our mistakes were our only guide.
    Stim Morane: But if we don’t appreciate what mistakes mistake, then we are disavailing ourselves of an important aid.
    Caledonia Heron: surely, mistakes are valuable - I think that is accurate
    Stim Morane: Yes
    Stim Morane: They point away from our fundamental nature’s presence.
    Stim Morane: But in doing so, we can trace back to what is being obscured.

    Stim Morane: ... if we have a small understanding of our real nature, then what seems (!) to obscure it can help us see it more fully.

    Stim Morane: If I suggested that mistakes were only mistakes, I would certainly be wrong.
    Stim Morane: Perhaps they could be seen as simply “not quite focused yet”.
    Stim Morane: like children

    Caledonia Heron: I am wondering if we are being who we are can we really be too far from a fundamental presence?
    Caledonia Heron: mistakes and all
    Stim Morane: we cannot be any distance from it.
    Stim Morane: But we can look away.
    Caledonia Heron: lol, exactly!!!
    Caledonia Heron: ahh, the look away :)
    Stim Morane: This is our freedom.
    Stim Morane: ANd even that freedom serves to help us clarify what is most important.
    Caledonia Heron: agreed

    Stim Morane: My point was that it’s only a matter of “seeming” to obscure something. The real nature is not obscured in fact.
    Stim Morane: There is only that nature.
