Ups and downs, highs and lows, ‘good’ and ‘bad’, ‘rights’ and ‘wrongs’ – all comprise some of the amazing richness of life. You may love for your experiences to be solely one-sided, skewed toward the wonderful and the joyous, yes. Yet, how then would you know what’s ‘wonderful’ and what’s ‘joyous’ unless you’ve also experienced its opposite? Trust and rest in the knowledge that there’s a place and a purpose in your life for the lows, just as much as for the highs.
•Flowing With The Contrasts:
Contrast is a natural and a vital part of the human experience. It allows you to identify and to sort that which you like from that which you don’t. It also provides you an opportunity for experiencing and living your life in all of it’s vibrant diversity.
Flowing with, rather than resisting, the assorted realities of life, will ensure that you walk your path gracefully and purposefully.
Remember that ‘experiencing’ doesn’t entail or necessitate becoming ‘stuck’ or embroiled in a situation or experience. It simply means being aware of, acknowledging, doing what needs to be done if so required, and moving along… Flowing…
The contrast of the ‘goods’ from the ‘not-so-goods’ or downright painful and challenging, affords you the freedom not only for identifying your preferences, but also for then choosing to hone your attention and focus upon your own favored choices.
So, in any experience, it is primarily by your own perceptions, outlooks, focus of attention, decisions and choices that your life is shaped.
Your choices and focal-points of awareness and attention become your magnets of attraction for drawing you toward your future experiences; and similarly for drawing your future experiences toward you.
