Things in life either happen to you or they happen for you. Perspective really does change everything. That doesn’t mean that everything is great and sunny all the time, but it does mean that everything can be accepted, dealt with, overcome, and progressed from.
Our brains are subjected to constant feeds of sensations, from sights and sounds, to physical feelings from our external environment to internal feelings and thoughts arising from our internal environment. It is how we chose to interpret these sensations that makes such an enormous difference.
Ken Keyes Jr eloquently puts this sentiment in terms of gifts. “Everything is a gift of the universe — even joy, anger, jealously, frustration, or separateness. Everything is perfect either for our growth or our enjoyment.”
