How Is Life Treating You?
Quite some time ago, one of the cashiers at the local co-op asked me, “How is life treating you?”
I was surprised by receiving such interestingly phrased question. After the initial shock, I answered with a definite “Life is treating me well,” accompanied with a big smile on my face.
I have contemplated on his question quite often ever since and came to the following understanding: if I want to experience certain qualities in my life, I have to embody that quality first or be willing to represent it in some ways. Life will treat me the same way as I treat life.
Let’s say, I want to be surrounded by positive energy. To achieve that, I have to stop being negative, worry so much, and start being positive. My attitude, my intention, and my actions will reform the world around me, and eventually, positive energy will appear on the horizon and will color my life with its enjoyable presence.
My meditation teacher once said, that “We are on a physical plane; if we are to produce the fruit, we must labor for it.”
The work is not easy but amazingly rewarding. Every little effort and energy you invest in your well-being will pay off. Your life will flourish.
So, how is life treating you?
Pause for a moment to reflect…
Are you happy with your answer?
If you feel that there is room for improvement, I have two questions for you to ponder:
1. What are some negative influences in your life that you can cut out?
2. What are the steps you will take to have more positivity in your life?
Trust that you have all of the answers and the solutions within. You are the key.
Life will treat you the same way as you treat life.
