What does choosing to see the good really mean? Easy to say what it does NOT mean. Choosing the good is not weak. It does not mean standing aside when you see something wrong happening. Certainly, it does not mean releasing discernment! No.
Choosing to see the good means that you are powerful. You have the choice to set your perceptions of life to a certain channel. You have the power to choose to see your life as a miracle.
You can look at life with eyes that choose to move towards wholeness, balance, wisdom, and love. First and foremost, and always, seeing the good is about choosing love, about seeing the connections and the common experience of life that unites us all. Looking at the world in this way, is choosing love. This is vastly empowering! Instead of feeling a victim, tossed about by the world, we recognize ourselves as limitless, powerful beings, with the ability to set our course. The challenges life gives us, seen from this lens, are opportunities to grow, to learn.
So give it a try...next time you find yourself starting to complain about a person or a situation...challenge yourself to SEE THE GOOD instead. Look for the positive aspects the situation is offering you...
As Mary Oliver famously wrote,
"Someone I loved
once gave me
a box full of darkness.
It took me years to understand that
this, too, was a gift."
