I know that if I have heard a particular saying, it is possible you have heard it too. So, I am going to ask a question and talk about it a little bit to share and assist with some clarity. It, of course, will be your choice what you do with the information. My question to you today is, Are you going to let one rotten apple spoil the whole apple cart?
Here’s a very simple example that happened to me just a few days ago. I had been doing some unpacking of some things, quite a few things really, because the office I work in just moved. In the process of unpacking and getting organized I broke a finger nail, then I bent a finger nail that caused it to crack, a little bit later I bent another one to the point of cracking and THEN I was cracking pistachios open for my snack and broke one of my thumb nails. If you are multitasking and reading and adding at the same time you are aware that as I type this I have 4 compromised nails.
So, what has my attention been focused upon? Not the majority, I can tell you that right now. The majority being the 6 nails that are intact and neatly filed. So, if the majority is bigger and is more pleasing to be focused upon, and it is. Do you agree?
Then, why do we choose to focus on the minority that is displeasing? Well, I do not know the answer to why and really the answer to why does not matter. What I do know is the solution. The solution lives in the awareness. Knowing that you are focused upon something that displeases you provides the opportunity to shift your point of focus. You have a choice.
I know I may sound like a broken record and I have said this before, but the reason I keep saying it is because it is the answer to every question you have ever had or will ever have. It is very simple. What feels better to you? Broken nails or intact neatly filed nails? neatly filed nails. What makes you feel better? Your wonderful relationship with this one or your torturous relationship with that one? Wonderful
What makes you feel better? These rotten apples or those perfectly ripe apples?
Focus on what makes you feel better and you will begin to feel better. If you find it challenging to find something positive in a particular situation, get less specific. What makes you feel better? love or hate? Love. What makes you feel better? peace or stress? Peace. The contrasting examples are endless and the answer is always so easy.
I am very grateful for my connection with an entity known as Abraham and it is through this connection that I am able to facilitate and share clarity with you. As you know, it is your choice what you do with the information provided here. What will you focus upon today?
