A man walks into a room and finds a mango on the table.
_”Oh, a beautiful mango! I love mangos! Look at how beautiful and ripe it is! Look at the color! Oh man I could really go for a mango right now that sounds so good.”_ And, he bites into it and is in bliss.
Another man walks into the same room, sees the same mango on the table and goes… _”OH GOD NO! NOT A MANGO. How could I ever forget that time when I was little that I had a rotten mango and got so sick. I hate mangos. Get it away from me. Heaven forbid I see another mango.”-_ And, he leaves the room in disgust.
It’s not about the mango. It’s how you see the mango. It’s what a mango means to you.
*When you change the way you view things, everything around you changes. If you see life through the lease of it being a world full of darkness, hate, anger, greed, and full of those who are going to hurt you, you will stand in a field of those thoughts and find yourself seeing it everywhere. If you view the world as full of possibility, love, healing, light, and the capacity for wonderful thins to happen no matter the suffering that does exist, you find yourself in a field of limitless possibility.*
Your choice. Be careful of running your life through your past experiences. Truly, don’t ever disregard your wisdom and what connects you with your deepest sense of truth. However, know when you are simply acting out of fear. The biggest question is, “How will you now choose to see the mango?” ☮🥂
