Lately I’ve been thinking. The upcoming election has been creating rifts right and left, friends lost, families broken, and tons of anger. Years from now the priorities will change but the loss and feelings may remain.
To adapt as water in the living Tao is to adapt to a vision of reality as truthfulness. In experience I can choose to be like the moving water in the stream. I meet what is truthfully present. I flow no matter what rock, falls, twists, and turns rise. I engage within the moment of presence, in my totality, and move without resistance.
My belief is that’s it’s important to clear your own way by focusing attention away from opinion, conclusion, positions, attitudes, and stories. I don’t have to have an opinion, all I need to know is how I am going to do the next thing and the next. Nothing wrong with having a position and sharing positions gives more information and perhaps my or your position will shift. But when opinions and positions start being labeled right or wrong, and argument ensue, it’s time for me to back out.
I learned that the universe and life don’t care about my opinions or what I might think, life keeps living regardless. I like to use my energies to remain productive and as clear as possible.
Be well and take care of you,
