Question: Sir, how to correct a bad decision? If not, then should we keep living with it?
Answer: Ankur, There is no need to ‘correct’ a ‘bad’ decision.
All decisions arise from mind. The quality of mind remaining what it is, the quality of any and all decisions will remain what it is.
Do not focus on the decision. Rather, look at the decision-maker. The decision is not bad, humbly accept that the decision-maker is bad. Without this acceptance, the series of bad decisions will continue.
When one realizes that the decision-makers mind has been full of beliefs, past, and fear, then there is radical transformation in one’s being. The old, frozen, conditioned decision-maker simply evaporates. What remains is crystal-clear intelligence, from which spontaneous, taint-free and fearless action arises. And such action needs no decision. It is choice-less, free of deliberation, or planning, and hence free of the concern of the results.
