What do you want to see in the world?

On vacation I lost a charm from my bikini in the bathroom. My eyes searched the light floor for the dark charm and, as I searched, I did not find it. Then I looked at the charm on the other side and saw that it was lighter in color than I thought. Adapted to this new idea, my eyes searched the floor again. I found it immediately.

It occurred to me that it is the same with our perception in the world, in society. If you want to see beautiful things, loving things, your senses will adapt. You see what you are looking for. If you look for suffering, for cruelty, for conspiracies, you will see them.
Of course you can’t avoid everything and your focus is never solely on the positive, but you can realize that you have a choice.

There will be people who think this is very naive of me. They will say that there is suffering and cruelty in the world. You don’t even have to look for it. And they are right. It’s all around us, you don’t have to close your eyes unless you want to. But still, I believe it’s not good for anyone to put your focus there. It is quite possible that,

for example, there are indeed conspiracies. But who benefits if we focus on that? Who benefits if we get angry or scared? Do we as humans benefit from that? I don’t think so.
If you want your world to become more beautiful, you will have to choose to see the beautiful. Shift your focus and your world changes.

don’t get me wrong; as far as I’m concerned you always have complete free choice in what you choose, as it is intended. Above all, choose what feels right for you. In any case, for me that is not: concentrating on things that make me restless, sad, angry or afraid. Of course I also get things that do have that effect on me, but I don’t look for it. It is good to remember now and then that you have a choice: You choose whether you are looking for light or dark. Choose wisely.
