I believe we do this because it gives us a comforting illusion of control. But at what sacrifice?
Are You Really Qualified to Be the Judge and Jury?
When we call something “bad” we are virtually guaranteeing it will be so. (Click that link to Tweet it) On two levels.
- We covey that expectation to the quantum field, which always forms a material reality matching our expectations.
- We build, or reinforce existing, beliefs that this circumstance is “bad”. As you know, neural pathways of habitual thought become our beliefs (which unconsciously produce our expectations).
And, although calling something “good” may not be as immediately problematic as calling something “bad”, it still runs the risk of two unwanted consequences
- When we say “Yes! This is ‘good’!”, we may be handcuffing the universe, which may have had even grander or more subtle plans to manifest our desires.
- Our subconscious may not actually believe our label of “good” anyway, if we are simply practicing positive thinking.
So How Do I Step Out of the Juror’s Box?
So what is the recommended alternative to labeling everything either “good” or “bad”? Give no judgment at all. No labels.
Anytime you assign no labels to a circumstance in your life, you keep open the infinite possibilities inherent in the quantum field. (Click that link to Tweet it) And I use the term “infinite” literally, not figuratively. Because the quantum field is the living embodiment of infinite possibility – why paint it into a corner by telling it that its “job is done”?
Let a Wise Farmer Show You How to Get Out of Jury Duty
Here is a story I use in my books to illustrate this practice:
An old farmer had only one horse, and one day it ran away. When the neighbors came to console the farmer over his terrible loss, the farmer said,
“What makes you think it is so terrible?”
A month later, the horse came home, bringing with her two beautiful wild horses. The neighbors became excited at the farmer’s good fortune. “Congratulations!” they proclaimed. “Such lovely, strong horses!” The farmer said, “What makes you think this is good fortune?”
While training the wild horses, the farmer’s son was thrown from one of them and broke his leg. All the neighbors were very distressed. “Such bad luck! We are so sorry for your misfortune,” the neighbors wailed. The farmer said, “What makes you think it is bad?”
A war came. Every able-bodied young man in the community was conscripted and sent into battle, where they ultimately died. Only the old farmer’s son, because he had a broken leg, remained behind and lived.
Try emulating this farmer today. See what happens. I predict you’ll be quite please with the possibilities you remain open to. And you’ll also enjoy a greater sense of serenity and confidence because you’ll be allowing the universe to do what it does best – use its infinite wisdom to align your life with your desires.
