Life Makes One More Real

Do you truly know what is positive and what is negative? Do you
have the total picture? There have been many people for whom
limitation, failure, loss, illness, or pain in whatever form turned out
to be their greatest teacher. It taught them to let go of false self-
images and superficial ego-dictated goals and desires. It gave
them depth, humility, and compassion. It made them more real.

Whenever anything negative happens to you, there is a deep lesson
concealed within it, although you may not see it at the time. Even a
brief illness or an accident can show you what is real and unreal in
your life, what ultimately matters and what doesn't.

Seen from a higher perspective, conditions are always positive. To be
more precise: they are neither positive nor negative. They are as they
are. And when you live in complete acceptance of what is which is
the only sane way to live - there is no "good" or "bad" in your life
anymore. There is only a higher good - which includes the "bad."
Seen from the perspective of the mind, however, there is good -bad,
like-dislike, love-hate.

Tolle,
Good way to make money. Selling now, which is for free. Don't mislead me with your german accent.
