When I look, I see there is a yes to the no to the no.
What’s here is already allowed, even the resistance and the struggle.
(a) There may be a no to the world, a thought that what’s here is wrong.
She should love me. My body should be healthier.
(b) There may be a no to this no, a thought that the no is wrong.
I should be over it. I should be more mature, clear, healed.
(c) And when I look, I find that there is a yes to all of this. There is a yes to the struggle, the resistance. It’s already allowed.
What’s here – the no, and the no to the no – is happening within and as awareness and capacity for what’s here.
Any responses to it – any images and thoughts about what’s here, including a me relating to it – happens after the fact, as an afterthought. Any struggle happens among and within images and thoughts.
And these responses are already allowed, happening within and as awareness and capacity for what’s here.
I can ask myself….
Is it true this is not already allowed? Is it true that any of this is wrong?
What is resisted? (E.g. an image of poor health, what it means.)
What’s resisting the resistance? (A thought that I should be over it, should me more clear.)
What does the I refer to in I should be over it? (An image of who I am as a human being, the one trying to do his best.)
