Noticing what is right

We often ask, “What’s wrong?”

Doing so we invite painful seeds of sorrow to come up and manifest. We feel suffering, anger and depression and produce more such seeds. We would be much happier if we tried to stay in touch with the healthy, joyful seeds inside of us and around us.

We should learn to ask “What is not wrong?” and be in touch with that.
