When I allow an unpleasant event to happen, I become an opening through which the universe enters this world. I become soft and yielding, instead of hard and inflexible. I enable space to flow into my limited self. I don’t get pulled into the tears, the drama, the suffering. I look at the situation as if it were happening to somebody else.
When I am in this state of acceptance, the situation suddenly shifts. I am able to see the good that was hiding underneath the bad. Why? Because there is balance in universe and when I become pliant, I open up the space for one form (good) to move into another form (bad). Underneath any event or situation, life is benevolent and abundant.
