QotD: Meaning



Have you just been diagnosed with cancer? Well then, be with the cancer. Recognize that everything you think about the cancer--positive or negative--is merely an interpretation of it. You are deciding what it means.

Do not decide what something means. Just let it be and dwell with it, move with it, breathe with it. Be free of thoughts about it and you will begin to understand it. You may not be able to put your understanding in words, or perhaps you may. It does not matter. Insight will come.

--Paul Ferrini
