PONDER on THIS for Tuesday, May 17th, 2011 by John Selby in EXPAND THIS MOMENT

“Did you ever wonder why so many good people in the world yearn to improve nasty, unfair situations in the world, but seem to be so ineffective in generating positive change? The reason is that they are fighting reality, rather than participating in it. When I suggest that you accept the world just as it is in order to change it, I’m pointing out that you cannot change a situation unless you fully accept the fact that, right now, that situation exists exactly as it is. You cannot change this present moment. You can only embrace it. And then in the next moment, respond.”

John Selby, in “Expand This Moment”
