Focus in Front

I'm often asked the question: when is enough, enough?

On one hand, we know that everything happens for a reason, and there are no mistakes or coincidences.

On the other hand, we learn that we can never give up, knowing that with the right tools and energy, we can reverse any decree or karma.

So, which is it? Let the Light decide, or never give up?

The answer is: both.

At any given moment, it's not about where we are supposed to be. It's about what work, which relationship, what decision I take. Every moment counts. Every decision counts. And if we look at our decisions in life as such, we stop battling and start winning.

But unfortunately, we can never truly know if we're making the right decision.

What we do know is that wherever we are, that's where the Light wants us to be. It's the best place for us to be now. And as long as we don't try to control the situation, then we won't end up in the place we shouldn't be.

The problem begins when we are so focused on the fight between yes and no that we lose sight of the bigger picture. If we can remain present and deal with the moment in front of us, no matter what our battle, then if we lose, we'll know that ultimately we weren't supposed to win that battle in the first place.

This week, focus on the person in front of you, the opportunity in front of you, the choices you can make right now. Especially now, when many of us will be spending more time with close friends and family, we need to keep focused on the things we can affect. And I know I needed that reminder.

What about you?

All the best,

Yehuda
