Jhaimy is a teacher of Ancient wisdom from Peru. Here he is teaching his son about judging something as being "good" or "bad". 

How can your perception of something affect how you feel?

Could what you perceive as being 'bad' simply be a mental construct from some preconceived beliefs?

Have you ever had something 'bad' happen that ended up being 'good'?

Have you ever had something 'good' happen that ended up being 'bad'?


The only thing that makes it 'good' or 'bad' is our perception of it in the present moment

This is a link to Jhaimys organisation:

There's a really nice Taoist story that sums this up.

An old farmer who had worked his crops for many years. One day his horse ran away. Upon hearing the news, his neighbors came to visit. "Such bad luck," they said sympathetically. "May be," the farmer replied.

The next morning the horse returned, bringing with it three other wild horses. "How wonderful," the neighbors exclaimed. "May be," replied the old man.

The following day, his son tried to ride one of the untamed horses, was thrown, and broke his leg. The neighbors again came to offer their sympathy on his misfortune. "May be," answered the farmer.

The day after, military officials came to the village to draft young men into the army. Seeing that the son's leg was broken, they passed him by. The neighbors congratulated the farmer on how well things had turned out. "May be," said the farmer.

I encourage you to try this: When something happens - don't ascribe a label to it (as being good or bad). Let it be.


Our judgement and perceptions are the root of what is creating our problems. 

Where to now?
