LIFE IS LIKE A BOX OF CHOCOLATES!
Do you remember that box of mixed chocolates the grown ups had on the table when you where young? You know it’s all good, but some pralines just tastes crap!
I say its all good even if some parts of life taste crap. “-But is it all good, or is this just a thing you coaches are supposed to say now and again to convince yourself,” someone might ask.
I don’t know that of course but if you do like me and look back on your worst “failures”, “mistakes” and “crises” – the crappy pralines in the box – I’ll bet they are the point of growth for you as for me. In retrospect the crappy tastiing praline is a great gift that set you off into a more beneficial direction and made you what you are today. They maybe tasted crap at the time but they where still chocolate! And chocolate is good!
…And what difference can this make for me?
What can this approach do for you in this moment when maybe something gives you a not so good taste in the mouth, when life seems to conspire against you? Don’t you lick yourself around the mouth and say; “its chocolate and its good!”, with a big smile on your face? I think you will. And compare it to the approach that life consists of “good” experiences and “bad” experiences. The smile will not come as easily if you think you just enter into a “bad” one…
The mind have a tendency to value things as good and bad, beneficial or non beneficial. In reality it’s only as it is and that “is:ness” is NOW. Actually there is no mistakes in universe. Because it can never be in any other way in this moment. And this moment is all that exists, and ever will exist. How can a mistake exist if it can be in no other way? Also, as quantum physics pointed out – there is no single separate event in Universe. So it took the whole universe to make this moment. To make you. It’s all chocolate.
What is this?
This playful combination of word and image is a purely artistic project inspired by stillness. The text came out of meditation and is sometimes combined with artwork or photo from an artist. Our hope is that it will inspire to a small halt of reflection in the otherwise entertainment-heavy stream of pictures at the internet.
