Everything is Relevant

I was reading a book the other day (so what else is new?) and the author started talking about how everything is relevant. What is good for me, may look bad from your position. The idea, the incident, the work is never good or bad, it’s always our position, our view point that makes a judgment on good or bad.

As I started thinking about it, this is true about everything. If I weigh myself and I realize I have lost 100 pounds I will feel thin. However, if I weigh myself and I am that same weight but have gained twenty pounds I will fell very fat. It’s relevant.

Further, if I couldn’t get out of bed yesterday but I can today, I might feel well. For other people just being able to get out of bed may not be enough. The more we look at our expectations of what should be good and what we think is bad, perhaps we can let go of our preconceived notions and think about things as being what they are. We need to realize that our perceptions are in the picture and creating a judgment about what is going on.
