Making decisions

It will be difficult for you to remain positive always and continuously. Sometimes you will be open and sometimes you will be closed.

But that is nothing to be worried about. That is a rhythm, a rhythm just like day and night.

What is needed, what is a must, is to accept the rhythm of the positive and the negative.

Once you understand that this is a rhythm, a natural phenomenon of the mind, then there is no problem in it — you relax.

One thing more to be remembered: never decide anything when you are in the negative phase, that’s all.

Never decide anything when you are in the negative phase and then you will never repent; there will be no need to repent.

Decision has to be made only when one is in a positive phase.

Just as you decide in the day not in the night when you are deep asleep — then you don’t decide — always decide when you are happy, open, flowing.

Then your decisions will be right; you cannot decide wrongly, it is impossible to be wrong in those moments.

When you are negative, withdrawn, sad, depressed, remember only one thing: no decision. Let this pass. Accept it — it is part of nature — but don’t decide in these moments.

The lucky people are those who have learned the knack of deciding in the positive moment, and unlucky are those who have somehow fallen into the trap of deciding in the negative moment.
