How can goodness give rise to that which is bad and vice-versa? So see that everything happens for the good. Then letting go becomes a happening. There is no effort. Do you see this? Yes bad things may occur but look back and see have they not made you stronger, wiser, deeper? Do not get caught up in events. Just acknowledge and move on because everything happens for the good. Situations are there to demonstrate your potential and to prove your nature. Reflect on this and its meaning.
When we seek to grow or improve where does its seed come from? Recognising the imperfection or perfection? The former is from motivation–filling in what is lacking. The later is from inspiration–recognising the potential and that I AM so much more. Do you see the contrast? And notice the shift in mindset and feeling.
Not only recognise that you are part of this marvelous creation but also feel part of
it. How? By participating in it and being aware of the attachments and resistance that arises. When you cook something do you worry about every ingredient working together? No. There is faith and trust. Likewise in Life there needs to be faith and trust for it to be tasty.
First accept that every event and person is perfect already. Then investigate and understand its meaning. How can imperfection give rise to perfection and vice-versa? Do you see this? It is like the object wanting to understand the subject which is perceiving. Or the shadow wanting to control its own projection and movement. Then notice how letting go, surrendering becomes a happening too.
Amidst the calamity, peace is not elsewhere but also found in the very same place.
