there are only situations

Sometimes we think something is blocking our way or is hindering our way to a certain destination. We turn to look in a different direction and see a new way, but it too has a catch. When we look around we observe a circle of deterrents surrounding us.

What is wrong? We we have trained ourselves to come up with the worst case scenario about what can come from a particular situation. If we ignore it, our opinion of it stays the same? Or we can come up with a way to deal with it.

We can drop the deterrent because we judged it to be. We thought is was a barrier. We can start a new habit of coming up with ways a situation is not a deterrent. Practice make permanent. It’s why we see barriers because we have practiced and have become very good at it.

We all are creators. So, we can use that ability to change the way we imagine things to be. We can start to think and act as an observer of each situation. This will allow us to come up with new ways to think about what seemed to be a deterrent.

Eventually we will find out there are no actual deterrents and will stop believing in them. We can observe situations and think “Should I ignore it or wait and see if there is opportunity here?” Or we can wonder if we go around it, what will we find there? etc.

There are only situations, and each one is another opportunity to observe. We need to get in the habit of observing without making judgments.

It’s not easy but the results are astounding. We normally judge almost immediately. It’s a habit and a hard one to break because we’ve always done it.

Here’s a situation and everything which has happened since the Big Bang has caused it. So it’s perfect as it is and cannot be avoided. So, the next situation is our contribution to the situation’s lineage.

We should practice recognizing our judgments. When we do judge and realize it, repeat something like this…“There I go judging again.” Growth and change begin with that statement.
