I recently listened to an Abraham Hicks podcast where they were talking about “contrast” and why we should try to appreciate it.
What is “contrast”?
Contrast is everything we don’t want. It's the beast of our life's story.
We have X but we want Y.
We want to be happy, but we’re sad.
We want to be rich, but we feel really poor.
We want a passion filled job, but we feel like gouging our eyes out going into our current job everyday.
You get the picture.
The thing is, if we can learn to look at the contrast in a way that isn’t so repulsive, we’ll essentially stop resisting it and, therefore, free it and move on. Remember: what you resists, persists.
