43. Looking for Equitable Resolves

Every day is a new beginning. A chance to disarm the day's stress into a beautiful outcome by adapting and acting on the highest good, allowing us to enjoy our time every day. When we have children with learning disabilities we need to be aware of their needs, what may be causing stress in their lives and help them see that by making the best choice in each situation they can enjoy the most happiness.

When we awaken each day we have the opportunity and choice to live in a way that we can enjoy, that will bring joy into our life. And this is by acting for the best of each situation that the day presents. By acting this way we are assuring ourselves peace of mind, peace of mind and an energized body.

The circumstances we are in from day to day may be repetitive and similar, but our own attitude and actions make the day painful or joyful for us. By our own attitudes and actions we are in charge of the outcome of each situation. When we are given lemons, we have the opportunity to make lemonade by 'sweetening' the outcome. We do that by taking one little nugget of truth out of an uncomfortable situation, and then using it as a stepping stone for improving the day's unresolved or inharmonious conflicts.

By doing our part to be positive and constructive, by doing our best, we enjoy our native natural peace and ease. Conflict about what to do arises when we want to go with an idea we had our mind set on, before we have considered all the options.

Why feel attached or set to follow a specific course when a more easeful option becomes apparent? In the end what will best preserve our peace of mind is that resolve which feels most comfortable to us and benefits everyone involved. Looking ahead to the results of a planned action helps us evaluate the best course to follow. If a decision needs to be made quickly, following our conscience keeps our body relaxed and our mind peaceful and free of stress.

The best solution is not always the easiest way. We must have courage, summon up our energy by will power, and make affirmations to do what is best in each situation so that we can maintain peace of mind every day. It helps to remember that we will be living with the results of our decisions.

When there is plenty of time to consider, write down all the options that come to mind. Make a pro and con list; then choose the course to follow. By looking at a problem as just an object, we create a little distance which gives us the perspective of seeing that the problem is an issue to be resolved that we are involved with, but that it is not part of our permanent being.

Issues come and go but we remain the constant amidst change.

Sometimes we are so set in our mind on a certain track that we cannot disconnect ourselves and follow the better plan. But, by surrendering our attachment to our set ideas, our thinking expands and becomes open to considering other options. An ice cube is hard, frozen; but as it sits in water, it melts and blends into the whole glass of water. With us, as we allow our hardened perspectives to loosen, we blend, harmonize, with the options that are most easeful and peaceful with the whole of our life and our daily life in the world.

Equitable resolve is the result of clear thinking in tune with the best choice. Let's help all of our kids learn to make clear choices.
