Most of us give everything a positive or negative meaning. The truth is what happens is our life is neutral. If we want to understand what is happening in our lives, we must stop giving it meaning. This is the place where we can begin to just “be” in the present.
The present moment requires awareness of both mind and heart. Our minds are so powerful that they thrive on conflict and perceive situations as good or bad, right or wrong, fear or love. Love never chooses sides. When we choose love, we choose acceptance, compassion, and forgiveness.
What are you choosing to see in your life as negative? Can you step back, be in the moment, and see why it has come into your life? What is the situation asking you to give so that you can love more fully?
