Physics-Real Time

The Law of Physics states that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. Easily understood, but what form or nature does that reaction take? Who decides? When it comes to our interactions with others (and ourselves), we decide, and there are many options to choose from. They include a knee-jerk, emotional response, or a calm, logic-driven, mental response, remembering that everything happens for a reason. What reaction is beneficial to you, to others?

When facing turmoil, real or perceived, try to remain calm, relaxed and evaluate the situation. What are your options and what are the possible outcomes of those actions? Keeping in mind that everything happens for a good reason and without recent turmoil there would be no impetus to focus on a better life.

We can’t control the words or actions of others, but we can control our reaction to them. Make the reaction decision based on the premise that it is an opportunity to recognize the presence of love and peace where you thought it was void. Use the situation as a learning experience to better yourself. Do not pass on the opportunity to acknowledge a life lesson. When the situation isn’t measuring up to what you want, first, make a decision about what you would rather have. Then, plan, and put it into action, await in eager anticipation as it is brought to you.

Situations are not tests, but rather opportunities, opportunities to realize and experience a positive life lesson.

Make your equal and opposite reaction an intelligent mental choice and an opportunity realized. The choice is yours.

Blessed Be!
