Tonight's theme was interesting. It was about how our own personal experiences and perspectives affect our experiences. An example was given that you and a friend are walking down the street.
Imagine that you grew up in a household that had lots of dogs, and you are walking with a friend who was bitten by a dog. A pit bull comes along with its owner, salivating, wagging its tail, and showing its teeth. How much do you imagine your experience with this dog will differ from that of your friend's?
The dog isn't inherently good or bad; it's our experience that colors our interpretation. Remember as I remind myself: A thought is just a thought. Its helpful to step back and look at things for what they are, without assigning them judgment..."good/bad." Just letting things Be...
