Perspective

"Whenever your perspective on something creates emotional pain, it's always because your perspective is still so narrow that you've yet to see all the good it will make possible." Author unknown

It's interesting how something that may initially seem wrong or bad or not good, often turns out to be a blessing, an opening, a gift.  I love the above quote.  It's such a comfort to think that everything is happening for our higher good, even when, in the moment, it may feel yucky and mucky and painful.  It's not easy to stay open and trusting when it feels like doors are being slammed shut in our faces or when everything feels hard and stuck, or like nothing is going right.  Especially when really big, seemingly tragic, things happen. 

But what if we could look down on ourselves, could somehow see the big picture of it all?   And could know, absolutely, that it's all happening FOR us, not To us.  And that it's all really very beautiful and lovely and just right?  And trust that we're being held and guided and loved every step of the way...

Sounds like freedom to me.
