Reality just is.
Everything is neutral.
We assign meaning to events, situations, conditions and circumstances.
At first, when I was diagnosed with MS, I thought that was the worst thing that could ever happen to me. In fact, the worst thing that ever happened to me was not listening to my body, not listening to myself, not listening to life.
The worst thing that ever happened to me was clearly not listening to my intuition!!
Years later, I learned a lot.
I did a lot of work on myself to transform and change myself: to heal myself.
Then I thought this diagnosis was the best thing that happened to me because it healed me!
“Change the way you look at things and the things you look at change,” Dr Wayne Dyer teaches us.
Now I think MS is just something that happened.
Not the worst, not the best: just a thing part of my life journey.
Everything is neutral until we assign it meaning.
Perception is a mental and spiritual faculty we all possess.
It is our point of view.
We have the ability to give meaning to any situation.
We have the ability to choose our reaction to whatever comes our way.
Truth be told, our reaction to an event, situation, condition or circumstance is not even our own, even though we think it is.
It is based on our conditioning: our family, our culture, our society.
It is based on the way we learned to view life. It is based on our subconscious programming.
It is not really our point of view. It is the point of view shaped by the world around us.
From my experience, I have to admit now that in reality I do not know if something is good or bad from my limited human perspective. I am learning that it is so much more empowering to withhold judgment.
Not judging allows us to remain open so the good in any situation can reveal itself to us. Nothing is only good or only bad. We live in a world of duality. Everything comes with its opposite.
It is human to quickly judge.
It helps to move through a situation if we pause our internal judgment and get curious.
From the point of view of our soul, everything is neutral.
From spirit point of view, nothing is good or bad.
“Letting there be room for not knowing is the most important thing of all. When there’s a big disappointment, we don’t know if that’s the end of the story. It may just be the beginning of a great adventure. Life is like that. We don’t know anything. We call something bad; we call it good. But really we just don’t know”, Pema Chödrön teaches us.
Do you know you get to choose your perception? Do you know you have the power to perform miracles through the choice of your perception? 💜
