We aren't failures

“No animal considers itself a failure, obviously.  People, however, often identify with their seeming mistakes, forgetting their abilities in other directions, so that it seems that they are misfits in the universe, or in the world.  The conscious mind can indeed have such thoughts because it so often tries to solve all problems on its own, until it begins to feel frightened, overburdened, and a failure in its own eyes.”
(The Way Toward Health,Session March 19, 1984)
