“You don’t have to know anything to be negative. But to be positive, you have to know a great deal!”
– R. Buckminster Fuller, 1982
When we focus on the surface, we see only problems. Life seems difficult and unfair. But when we go deeper, we discover the order and purpose of life. We find things happen for a reason, often to correct mistakes we’ve made or to teach us and restore balance. And we learn how deeply supported we are in our journey.
Then, we see even challenging periods like a health crisis or loss of someone close to us in a new light. We can come to acceptance much more easily, then work with what is happening and move past it.
Same life seen from a higher place. That makes a lot of difference.
