When we assume the best, we create a safe environment for our own self-exploration and spiritual maturity. You can see it even in our physical posture in life. If you stand with your arms relaxed at your sides your heart is wide open, welcoming the best. If you stand with your arms tightly crossed over your chest then your heart is closed in an expectation of being hurt or afraid. It is easy to stand at the “water cooler” of life making the most negative assumptions about our jobs, our boss, our friends, our families, our life. Or you can practice loving yourself, loving your day, loving your life by assuming the BEST. Or at the very least offering some benefit of the doubt that the universe knows what it’s doing and has our best interests in mind.
