GO TOWARDS WHAT YOU WANT, NOT AWAY FROM WHAT YOU DON'T!
Go Towards What You Want, Not Away from What you Don’t!
If you carefully read Watson’s 10 Caritas Processes from her Human Caring Theory, you will see that they are all about moving towards authentic presence, equanimity, mindfulness, love, kindness, productivity, problem-solving, and caring rather than away from what is not wanted. I have learned that there is profound wisdom in this subtle shift in perception, for if the sum of a person’s energy is directed towards the good, then there is an excellent chance something good will come of it. Conversely, if energy is split between lamenting the negative while considering what good is possible, there is a significant chance that the outcome might be entangled in a web of negativity. Moving mindfully towards the good illuminates fresh perspectives that would have been impossible to imagine while mired in the undesirable.
This one subtle shift in perspective has transformed my life and helped me to grow in wisdom.
