Do the Right Thing and Embrace the Outcome

(Adapted from “The Art of Inner Peace” by Bohdi Sanders)

Worrying about how things will turn out never changes the results and only has a negative effect on your inner peace. Many Ancient Masters taught that the path to peace is being content with the results of events just how they happen. They taught that attachment to the outcomes of our actions leads to suffering and the way to peace is learning to let go. Accept the way things are and just do the right thing; then, when you take the right action, the right answer can arise by itself. Knowing that you’ve done your best reduces fear, worry, and stress and disconnects you from the outcomes of events. Don’t be concerned with the results, don’t stress over the outcomes, just know that you’re free to take the right action. “Of the moment, be. In the moment, live. The art of remaining in the present, learn. Neither the past nor the future exists.”  -Yoda
