Can you spot the difference?
There are differences in many things
Between comfort and discomfort
Between pain and suffering
Between choices and choosing
Between now and then
Differences that draw our attention here or there
Focusing on one whilst overlooking the other.
Experiencing both in every moment
But imagining that one does not exist.
What if you could allow yourself to simply recognise
That experiencing both is always happening
What you choose to focus on
Provides the narrative of that experience for you.
What if you were able to remember
The immense amount of comfort, opportunity, choice
That were present but your narrative overlooked?
What if you could identify the difference
Between pain and suffering, now and then
And accept that what we believed as a single truth
Was simply our narrative?
And if that were true,
Imagine if we changed the narrative.
What would then be your experience?
