It is never easy to do the “right” thing. In fact, sometimes we don’t even know what the “right” thing is that we are supposed to do. And who decides what the “right” thing is anyway? You? Your mother? Your father? Your boss? You significant other? And besides how do we know when is the time to do the “right” thing? And if we do not know what the “right” thing is to do, what do we do then? Do nothing? Ask someone else to do the “right” thing? Or do we just take the bull by the horns, so to speak, and figure out what the “right” thing to do for us is at that moment? Because, in the moment, the present moment, is all we have. And so, we have to make a choice about what we are going to do that seems to work for us. And then later on when we look back at that choice about what was the “right” thing to do we may scold and beat ourselves up for doing the “wrong” thing. However, one must remember that we are always making choices about doing the “right” thing in the moment and then we must tell ourselves, “I did the best I could with what I had at that time and that was all I could do. At that time, I was doing the ‘right’ thing.”
Namaste, my friends.
