Recently, when my partner and I were discussing something that was potentially annoying or frustrating, and I said, “It’s just the way it is,” he said “It’s all ok.” That phrase resonated with me; it adds a valuable perspective to knowing that things are the way they are because it’s just the way it is, free of any value judgments.
By saying “It’s all ok,” you are connecting with your faith, faith you will be ok, safe, regardless what life throws your way. That at the end of the day, one way or the other, it will all work out.
There is a line from my favorite ancient Chinese poem, “Affirming Faith in Mind,” that says, “When faith and mind are not separate, and not separate are mind and faith, this is beyond all words, all thought, for here there is no yesterday, no tomorrow, no today. There is only the present moment, all else is thought.”
This is the faith of your true Buddha self. In this space, all is revealing without exerting power of mind. In this space, you know you have everything you need inside yourself to be at peace and happy. It’s all ok.
