THE DAILY GROOVE ~ by Scott Noelle
:: "What's GOOD about that?" ::
If it's raining, you're supposed to call it "bad
weather" and complain.
Complaining makes you feel bad, but you've been led
to believe that the source of your angst is the rain
-- the weather *conditions*. That's conditionality.
UNconditionality means wanting so much to feel good
that you stop using conditions to justify feeling bad.
One way to practice the Art of Unconditionality in
the face of "bad" conditions is to ask yourself,
"What's GOOD about that?"
What's GOOD about the rain? It vitalizes the soil
and plants... It makes the air smell clean... It's
fun to get drenched and then go take a hot bath!
What's GOOD about children "misbehaving"? It means
they're trying to engage, explore, connect, create,
etc... It means you get to practice loving and
feeling good unconditionally, which is the key to
your Authentic Power.
Eventually you'll realize it's neither good nor
bad -- it just IS. Welcome to Reality. :-)
