Choices & Doing Not-Doing

Giovanni Bellini ” Agony in the Garden of Gethsemane” (1465) National Gallery, London

The Tao is called the Great Mother
empty yet inexhaustible,
it gives birth to infinite worlds.

It is always present within you.
You can use it any way you want.

The purpose of our existence is creation. Life is expressing itself through us at any moment, by any tiny, little action we take. Let us always be aware of it, because it is the choices we make, that determine the quality of our experience. Life does not know “pleasant” or ” unpleasant”, it only knows that what is. But we take this distinction as our guiding principle in life. We seek pleasure and at the same time avoid that what apperas negative, or painful to us. This is how we create suffering, because by making choices guided by fear, and the many different expression of this primary emotion, we act out of resistance. Choices can be made, following the principle of “not my will, but thine”. We own the choice, but let go of the result.  This is how Life creates the infinite worlds.

Following this principle, open to guidance and conscious of the our individual choices, we have a universe to play with.

About Michaela

I am a wanderer and a wonderer, like you are. I love our journey and to walk in the company of friends – to learn, experience, share, laugh, cry and above all I simply love this marvelous, magical, mysterious life. I have no plan (cannot believe I am saying this) and my only intention is to be truthful to myself and others.
