The content of our mind constitutes our world. If we are afraid, we perceive a frightening world: we see many reasons not to trust, many dangers in the face of uncertainty… If we are fearless, we perceive a joyful world: we see many reasons to share and love, many opportunities in the face of uncertainty…

There is a reality, with events we do not control, but our emotions and our experience are only loosely connected to factuality. The reality we face is uncertain and constantly changing; and there is no intrinsic characteristic found in what's uncertain, in what's impermanent; thus, our experience cannot possibly have any tie to any 'firm' characteristic.

Our interpretation, conditioned ( #karma  ) to be fearful or fearless, is what selects the world we live in.


A bench… and a source of inspiration! Three highly recommended minutes of video, whether you're into dance or not: NOTHING IS SOMETHING - #1 The bench
Do you define your circumstances as 'hopeless' or 'inspiring'?
