Welcoming everything

What if, instead of orienting yourself first towards fixing everything

fixing yourself
fixing others
fixing this situation
fixing how you’re feeling

you started by welcoming everything?

welcoming yourself
welcoming others
welcoming this situation
welcoming whatever you’re feeling

This is not an argument for passivity.

From an orientation of welcome – something so rarely experienced or practiced by many of us – a whole new set of responses becomes possible. And a world that is quite different from brought about by our permanent orientation away from ourselves, others, and the life in which we’re always in the midst.
