Could you have done it better?

You are ALWAYS doing the best you can do in the moment.
How do I know?
Because if you could have done “better,” you would have.
Remember that this thing called “hindsight” (which is only a thought) always assumes the contrary. Hindsight is only an ideal. It has no reality. And the mind uses it to fight with the real, with that which happened.
This is where the eternal war starts…between the mind’s hindsight and what actually happened. The way out of the war is to see the ideal for what it is: a thought that, if believed, creates misery and anxiety. The moment I experience the ideal for what it really is, it begins to disappear. And the understanding that arises is the beginning of self-acceptance…and peace.
