When you tilt toward the good, you’re not denying or resisting the bad. You’re simply acknowledging, enjoying, and using the good. You’re aware of the whole truth, all the tiles of the mosaic of life, not only the negative ones. You recognize the good in yourself, in others, in the world, and in the future we can make together. And when you choose to, you take it in.
The Four Steps of Taking In the Good
1. Have a positive experience.
2. Enrich it.
3. Absorb it.
4. Link positive and negative material.
