The Choice

By Peter Shepherd

There are times when we face a frustrating situation - perhaps a person is just not listening or getting the point, or events are proving hard to control, or there is some kind of conflict. This is a turning point in which we can go in two directions:

Acceptance towards Light —- Resistance towards Darkness.

We have a choice. This is also the test, of whether we are unburdening our Karma or increasing it.

We can confront the situation, accept the reality that exists and work to improve it in a proactive, conscious way - with enthusiasm applying communication, understanding and empathy, bringing light to ourselves and others. This is the path of gratitude, forgiveness and love.

Or we can resist the situation, refuse to accept the reality that exists and instead apply inappropriate fixed solutions in a reactive, unconscious way - with consequent negative emotions, on a slide into darkness through antagonism, anger, fear, grief and apathy. This is the path of ingratitude, resentment and hatred.

We have the choice.
