the good ~ the bad
good and bad.
we attach one or the other to every event or situation.
what if that ‘label’ had no real value?
it’s just a belief. a perspective.
we observe OR go thru something
that we then label as ‘good’ or ‘bad’.
what if they are neither?
what if they are completely neutral
it is US who attaches the emotion to it?!
what if we flipped what we thought
so that what is good is actually bad
our personal life experiences.
we label the ‘things’ that happen(ed) to us
as ‘good’ or ‘bad’.
these events have an impact on us
based on the emotions that rise within
the label that we slap on it.
what about choice?
CHOOSE to feel differently?
then the event(s) wouldn’t hold such a charge.
we can CHOOSE to feel differently.
we don’t think it’s a choice, do we?
think you can’t possibly feel that something you see as ‘horrible’
is actually YOUR reaction
not the true essence of the event itself?
is it possible to release all reactions AND labeling?
is it possible to consider that events really ARE neutral?
is it possible to train ourselves to feel differently?
to choose differently about EVERYTHING?
yes. yes. yes. YES!
next time you are having a judge-athon
consider that you might be totally fucking wrong.
the way you are feeling
is based on your own stuff
not necessarily anything else.
stick that in your pipe and smoke it!
your world might turn upside down
and YOU might turn with it.
which would be awesome
by the way.
