There is bad news everywhere

There is bad news everywhere.

Rarely do people look for good news, strangely.

I wonder how early humans coped without news, particularly bad news 24/7. Perhaps they simply enjoyed their lives and did not feel the need for drama.

Also, I have never been able in my life to change any news, including the bad. Accepting what is and realising it has already happened enables us to be at peace, even if we are not necessarily happy. Our dealing with situations is much better too when we do not label things good or bad, we accept them and deal with the situation.

Bad news will always be there if that’s what you need.

A problem-free life

What if there are no problems?

As you read this, now, this very moment, do you have a problem?

The answer will be no, a situation could arise and you will deal with it. Problems only occur when we label something as such and then the mind takes over. Also, when we are in our minds, the mind will project forward into the future and will imagine problems.

We can only deal with situations as and when they occur in the present moment, future problems are mind constructs and therefore cannot be dealt with as they are not real.

Problems give rise to psychological fears and they are completely different to present real physical dangers that we deal with by flight, freeze or fight.

There are no problems, just situations we choose to label as such and future mind projections of imaginary problems.

A problem-free life is a choice, one that any of us can make at any moment, it is that easy, stay focused on our life now and do not create labels for future events or current situations.
