오류 [oryu] (sino-korean)
誤 (오) – mistake, doubt
謬 (류) – wrong
Can people always do the right thing? They make mistakes, but if they want to grow and become better, they must be honest with themselves.
It is human nature to hide their mistakes. People who try to hide their mistakes will not develop. Honest people, on the other hand, develop and grow because the Universe pushes them forward and keeps them going wherever they go. In the East and the West, the past, the present and the future, an honest person can become a friend to all. Without going through this process, we cannot develop our virtues.
As we analyze fatal mistakes or grave crimes, we inevitably conclude that if one understood the impact one’s actions would have on the well-being of others, perhaps one would not have made such a serious mistake.
All of our past mistakes do not disappear without a trace; on the contrary, they accumulate. By committing them, we lose our original position and begin to slide downward.
If a man evades the good and commits a mistake, conscience seeks to correct it.
In any mistakes, a man of good must foremost blame himself. And when there is any good accomplishment, he must recognize it as a universal merit.
By honestly confessing and repenting to ones mistakes, you can be filled with renewed determination. There is nothing wrong with making a mistake; it will motivate you to leap forward. A mistake can serve you well, if it encourages you to move resolutely in the direction of good.
