The worst that can happen is….

 

The worst that can happen in my life is that I am homeless on the street.

(Sick, have lost my mind, without friends, despised, rejected, tired, hungry, cold, dying alone.)

It’s the best for me.

I may surprise myself when I experience the kindness of others.

It will show me what’s left, if my mind is available for it.

The thought of it now shows me what’s left, and I am motivated to find more clarity on my thoughts on this.

It makes me just like anyone else. Many have experienced it and do experience it. Many fear it. Some have found clarity around it.

The best for others.

It gives others an opportunity to be generous – with their kindness, time, money etc.

It gives others an opportunity to see what comes up for them when they see me. Do they recoil? Does fear come up? Compassion? Recognition?

If I find more clarity on this now or later, it may show others what’s possible.

The best for the world.

It may change how society takes care of people in this situation, and this may benefit society as a whole.

Additional examples from Shona 🙂

best for me because…

I get to see that I am enough

I gain humility

Life may be very simple

I get to surrender to life if my mind is open to it – there is nowhere else to go

I may experience life as very kind

This may be my only way ‘home’?

best for others because……

They are spared from a me that seeks LAA from them

Maybe they get to be grateful for their own lives through seeing me

best for the world….

I may be an example in the world of someone happy and at peace in my situation

Note

This is a  basic, primal (and sometimes unnoticed) fear for me, so it’s good to look at.

I also see there are two tracks of exploration here:

(a) The realistic scenarios. What’s the worst that realistically may happen, and can I find peace with it?

(b) The worst case scenarios. What’s the worst that possibly – in my mind – can happen, and can I find peace with this too?

What fears and beliefs surface for me? What do I find when I take these to inquiry?
