distance between good and bad

the distance between good and bad
in mind alone is born
and builds a mind-made hell
of the rose’s thorns.

Nothing in the world is good or bad in itself, but mind will categorize and label things as such. What seems good today might be bad tomorrow; what helps one person may hinder another. Terrible problems can harbor grace. Such qualities are subtle and fluid, and drawing borders between them can obscure the greater vision of the whole.

It is better not to invest too much attachment to such differentiation, as they might change at any moment.

Life flows whether we divide or not.🙏
