Are You Stuck in Neutral?

Do you tend to label what is happening as either ‘good’ or ‘bad’? Maybe we need to introduce another option such as, ‘What’s Happening Now’.   When we label things as ‘good’ or ‘bad’ we either cling to them or resist them. Either way leads to suffering. But if we can remain as neutral as possible, then we aren’t emotionally attached, and therefore don’t suffer when what we labeled ‘good’ is gone or what we label ‘bad’ isn’t.  Perhaps being stuck in neutral isn’t so ‘bad‘ after all.
