Lying in bed recently with a sore throat, I remembered some good advice I’d heard on the podcast I mentioned in the last post. What doesn’t hurt?
My throat was sore, but I noticed that my toes felt completely normal. So did my feet come to think of it, and oh, my legs too! In fact, it turned out that 99% of my body felt positively great! I felt quite happy after that. And the sore throat would go sooner or later anyway (impermanence!)
Of course this extrapolates to everything in life. ‘What’s not wrong at the moment?’ is a great question. There are always endless things that are beautiful, wonderful, and worth smiling at.
