A concrete instruction

File:Singapura cat looking around.jpg

Not always easy to do when a piece of work or a meeting does not go to plan, but since we often cannot really evaluate something until much later,  it is best to rest in the present, and not in a story about what it means,  or with the passing mood which it provokes.

For us, as people wanting to live a full, unrestricted, adventurous, real kind of life, there is a concrete instruction we can follow: see what is. Acknowledge it without judging it as right or wrong. Let it go and come back to the present moment. Whatever comes up, see what it is without calling it right or wrong. Acknowledge it. See it clearly without judgment and let it go. Come back to the present moment.
