How do we make sure that good things don’t keep happening?
Worry that they won’t keep happening.
We like to spend our time looking for evidence that bad things, if they happened once, will happen again and again and again, and be worse. But, oddly enough, we don’t apply the same logic to good things.
People tend to think that if something good happens then something bad is just around the corner. Or that if something good happens (an exception to all the bad that is really what should be happening) and it is followed by more good, the good that follows it will be less good.
If bad happens there will be more bad and if good happens there will be more bad.
We can’t win for losing.
Some people wait for the perfect conditions in which to do good; and they like to project control over the outcome for an extended period. The rationale being that if they do good, no good can possibly come of it, and so they must indemnify their good deeds with their own brand of Do-Gooder insurance.
Meanwhile, as we feed ourselves negative messages regarding the abundance of the good possible in our lives and on the planet, we simultaneously make ourselves sick with worry that any shred of good we are experiencing, or have experienced, will not be repeated or renewed.
We are torturing ourselves mercilessly.
The surest way to keep the kind of experiences we would like to have out of our lives is to push them away with fear and worry, which is exactly what we are doing.
Good and bad do not inhabit opposite sides of the ring. It is a continuum. The likelihood that we will experience that which we perceive as good is no less than the likelihood that we will experience that which we perceive as bad.
There is no preset.
But no matter what life brings, there is one thing that is always abundant, gives us peace and is not on a continuum but radiates from within us, from the Source. It is Love!
Forget about the ebb and flow of good and bad. Don’t think about what is around the corner. Focus on love and more love will be sure to follow. It is a win win situation, because…
Love is all that matters!
