Allow life to be

When you leave others to be, when you just be, then see the magic happen.

when we do not exert a negative or resistant thought upon something, when we leave the universe to work, see what happens. Just give up the fight, nothing comes from it other than exhaustion and the wrong outcomes.

When we overly try to engineer an outcome it rarely comes, and what does come is out of force and coercion, therefore, it won’t last.

When we leave it and step back, remove the force and allow things to flow and occur naturally, then the amazing happens, the magic works and we allow life to be.

Positive and negative

We are almost swamped with positive affirmation advice and always have a positive attitude and so on. We have a glut of positivity memes and posts, we have a fake happy-clappy veil thrown over everything so that when the negative things occur, we seem to melt in despair.

Yet every positive has a negative somewhere. Our moments of pleasure-seeking will come with a negative. There are ups and downs. Yin and Yang

We neither have to fake joyous, cartwheeling happiness on a continual basis or look for the misery in everything. We do not need to feed one or the other.

If we choose to accept what is, whether positive or negative and simply be, then there is always inner peace and joy, even when bad things happen. The more we resist one thing or the other and fight it, the harder it is to accept. We end up constantly seeking pleasure as if to block out anything that might be bad, deny bad things, hide from negativity.

We need to see beyond the mind’s labelling of things as either good or bad, negative or positive. Some of our greatest learning and inspiration often arises from what we label as bad.

Labelling leads to addiction and the greater the addiction to short-term pleasure (AKA happiness) the greater the opposite will be when it occurs.

There are cycles in our lives constantly, with ups and downs, we can not always have up and therefore we can not always be positive, but if we search within and stay away from the mind, we can always have peace which can be permanent if we choose.
