I've been fortunate enough to meet many people who encourage this flavour in their hearts and lives. I say fortunate because they are teachers. They teach me to value whatever life is offering in the moment, and never to hold on too tightly to the past because for all its joys and sorrows it is no more.
Only now exists and it is sweet. That is a choice.
Notably those who cultivate bitterness in the heart are usually unaware or unconscious that they choose to do so. Instead they nurture the pain and the pain nurtures them, urging them on to continue the cycle. They then walk into situations where pain is because it is familiar and comfortable and they can add to the basket. In any of these actions there is choice and the decision to be conscious at the very least to what is happening.
Peace will only grow where the soil is fertile with NOW!
