These were the initial questions I set out to answer with this blog. I didn’t expect the answers to pop out like the answers on a Magic 8 ball, but there has been some popping recently.
Q: Can you live an honorable life without children?
A: Yes, one can live an honorable life, but a person won’t be happy unless they let go of the notion that they are a failure. Their project may have failed, but a person is not and cannot be a failure. People are love. Unfortunately, separating from that identity is not so easy.
Every time your project fails rejoice, ‘today this project of mine has failed!’ And then surrender it. If you are unable to let go of your failure, then how will you ever let go of success? When you fail at anything, why do you hold on to it? Let go of it and be free! Then you can say, ‘I am free!’
If you are successful, then you will get more and more projects one after another to handle. But if you are a failure then you are carefree! Just make sure your heart doesn’t fail worrying about failure. –Sri Sri
