Two little kids are in a hospital, lying on stretchers next to each other, outside the operating room. The first kid leans over and asks, “What are you in here for?”
The second kid says “I’m in here to get my tonsils out and I’m a little nervous.”
The first kid says “You’ve got nothing to worry about. Ihad that done when I was four. They put you to sleep, and when you wake up they give you lots of Jell-O and ice cream. It’s a breeze!”
The second kid then asks, “What are you here for?”
The first kid says, “A circumscision.”
The second kid responds, “Whoa! I had taht done when I was born. I couldn’t walk for a year!”
In every experience you face, there is always a moment when all problems start out as merely seed possibilities. It is your responsibility to make sure that they don’t blossom into emotional havoc. Every spiritually evolved person that I have read about alludes to a principle that states that there is always a peaceful part of us that we can turn to and react from when times are tough. Buddha, Confucius, Gandhi, Jesus, and many others have embraced this philosophy. Jesus said, “Turn the other cheek.”
What does it mean to “turn the other cheek?” Well, first of all it doesn’t mean that we should lie down and allow people who have offended us to continue to walk all over us. It doesn’t mean that we should give life’s circumstances permission to repeatedly take advantage of us. Whenever we find ourselves in turmoil over a situation or something someone has said or done, our turmoil is an indication that we have been in the wrong state of consciousness. When we react to whatever upsets us in the same state of mind we only compound the problem. “Turning the other cheek” is an opportunity for you to shift perspective and respond from the Higher part of yourself – the other side of you.
