The water is cold if we tell ourselves it is. It is, of course, just water.
The mind labels things and makes them so.
There isn’t a good or bad, there just is.
Things are hard, well, they are after we tell ourselves they are.
What we tell ourselves is a choice we alone make.
A life without constant evaluation and labelling is a conscious life of inner peace in this moment now…everything else is an unreality in our mind.
