Practice Beholding

Today’s thought is an invitation. The next time you find yourself faced with something or someone that upsets you, doesn’t meet your desires, triggers your “I want to fix this” gene, try this:

Practice Beholding

It’s simple. Whatever “it” is, step back far enough to behold it as you would witness a sunset or behold the painting of a great master. Nothing in you would ever try to change the sunset or the painting, true? You would receive it for what it is and allow its beauty to touch you deeply. So again I say, when you are triggered:

Behold the situation – Behold the person

Free of any desire or impulse to change or control, just be with it.

What do you notice IN YOU now?

What is YOUR wisdom?
