Thinking Makes It So

It occurs to me that the human tendency to pre-judge makes it challenging for us to remain open–forget accepting–about so much of life!  We have pre-decided and thus pre-judged something or someone and there’s no room for editing.  In fact, often we dig in our heels and find evidence to support our positions even with contra-indicators looming.

I am reminded of a line in shakespeare that “nothing is either good or bad but thinking makes it so.”  Isn’t that true?  We name and assign whatever we find acceptable and unacceptable and who exactly do we believe ourselves to be when we assign these values to a thing or a person?  By what authority do we assign these values and how do we like it or would we like it when/if something another assigns to us is just not fact but rather opinion?

When and if we give this matter consideration, I am certain that we would stand corrected and see how such “assignments” are just not quite right.  When we are at our best, we realize that judgment is unwarranted criticism.  You don’t want that Karma on you, anyway.  That energy will just need to be balanced to make right and why suffer the effects if you can self-correct now-before it’s out there.  And you can.  Just another choice.  Just sayin’ …only with love, of course.
