When to say ‘yes’ and when ‘no’

When you are faced with different situations or opportunities, which do you say ‘yes’ to and which do you say ‘no’ to? In order to decide, it is important to keep the vision of your dream and what you the soul really wants, in front of you. Be aware of what is essential for you. From this space of inner focus, we should see which of these situations or opportunities are going in the direction of your dream, what is essential and what takes you away from your dream; also be aware that sometimes situations are like mirages that seem to offer something easy and attractive, but which distance you from the essential or the truth.

They are opportunities that seem easier and, out of laziness, it would be easier to say ‘yes’. But within you, if you listen, you know that, in the long term, you will not be happy, content and peaceful given that you have avoided or are running away from the challenge, you haven’t listened to your heart. We need to refuse to allow ourselves to be carried by the current. When you say ‘yes’ to the proposal, situation or action that is close to your essence of your spirit, it is a ‘yes’ in which there is not submission, where you do not lose your freedom or your self-esteem. It is a ‘yes’ with the certainty that, learning from what life offers you; you and others will move forward in a positive sense.
