Right or Wrong Have Camps; “Is” Has No Boundaries - Grasshopper
“Is” can’t be contained or confined by ideology or belief and it never engages in backbiting or pledges to have anyone’s back. “Is” is neither right or wrong - it’s both, plus everything else that won’t be invited to either campground.
Have you ever done the arithmetic on how much time you spend sitting around the campfire debating right and wrong? Right or wrong will always present an opponent. That means the more time you spend with either, the more of your life is about fighting.
“Is” gets you focused on what’s not debatable and stepping towards an action plan that’s neither right nor wrong.
“Is” is not a chameleon. It never changes color because it is all colors at once. You can’t divide it and take the portion you want and bend it to your whims. “Is” is the only thing that is all things to all people.
Right or wrong will always fall apart in the face of some other fact. There is no fact that can make “Is,” “Isn’t.”
Attempting to carve up reality will only dull your sword; focusing on what is will have you cut through the camouflage.
There is no right or wrong; there is just “Is.”
Right or wrong are judgements after some reality has happened. Here are some substitute words that will get you closer to reality: “works” or “doesn’t work.”
“Right” or “wrong” are opinions; “works” or “doesn’t work” aren’t judgements, just observations of reality.
Right or wrong is an in between your ears battle. “Works” or “doesn’t work” is a tangible reality you can witness.
What’s not working in your life? I’m willing to bet, at cause, is your adherence to right or wrong vs. “what is.”
When you become less contained by right and wrong, you can visit any campsite and experience more cumbayá and, who knows, perhaps work together on a recipe for tastier marshmallows.
All the best,
