“When we experience the negative, we recognize the positive and then we acknowledge that all things are relative.” – Astrid Hardjana-Large
Positive thinking, the ability to accept a situation and recognize the gifts it presents. We will all go through the Journey of Life integrated with experiences that are both negative and positive. When we are provoked by the negative, we are awakened with the ability to recognize the positive. With constant training to observe them both, we are enlightened to the fact that all experiences relate.
What we will feel is generated in the moment but when the moment passes and we view the whole picture, the feeling may change when we realize that it was not as horrific as we anticipated. Without knowledge of what is good, we would not be aware of what is bad. We are also aware of what is bad because we remember what feels good. Awareness of what is good and bad for our person will always be a personal opinion. What a person feels and remembers cannot fully be shared with another in the moment. We are each entitled to our distinct reaction and we are free to manage it in the way that we see fit.
Never just choose to reject an experience due to a feeling in the moment. Observe your full experience and discover the gifts meant for your person.
