The biggest problem with wrong and right is the thought of thinking in such polarities.

I have learned much more from outthinking such thought in life then I have learned

in settling for such easy answers as yes or no.

Pain is not bad nor is it good in my mind. If it had to be seen in such polarity

I would have to see it as good. More accurately I would define it as an indication

of where attention is needed. I cannot heal what I cannot feel. This is why it is

important not to numb myself with medications or foods that do such to

the mind body connection. This is but one example, examine your life as you

go through your day to day activities, are you settling for the easy answers of

“Yes, or No?”. Ironically this can be your new “Yes or No” question to yourself.

It’s not as easy as night and day nor black and white, yet it is much more rewarding,

inspiring, and exciting once we look at life for what it is, rather then seeing it in such

limiting mindful thoughts. After all, if you were to watch the night turn into day, then

the day back into night, while watching the whole day and night in-between, you would see

it is all a gradual change from darkness into light then lightness into dark

over and over again with variances and differences throughout the seasons.

It is not simply night and day.

The problem with most advice is people try to give it in a binary way. It’s either this way or that way . Ok, sometimes they will put down several options and even number them as if those are the only options. There is no right or wrong way to run or do anything for that matter. There are ways. Once you start saying it is this or that only, you alienate yourself from any more expansive thinking. You’re stuck in a box and all you can do is keep shaking the box. Of course all that comes out of the box is the same two options you put in it. Right or wrong I am rethinking and advancing….
