Is there anything good or bad?
No. But thinking makes it so.
Criticism is different if it came from a stranger vs a loved one.
If someone said something behind our back – but we didn’t know – would we care?
It’s our thinking, our reactions that decide if it’s good or bad.
What if we could control ourselves? We consciously decided whether something is good or bad vs reacting to it.
We don’t even have to label everything – we don’t even have to react.
It just is.
