In so many ways we stand things on their heads. We see them in opposite to how they are. For example, we see problems as weights on our shoulders and we see inherited problems as inevitabilities. We see poverty as something that has always been and always will be. It is neither. We have an opportunity to end it.
Every day we can create dramatic change – if even for one person. And that is enough.
Every day we can create dramatic change for hundreds and maybe thousands or more. That is the opportunity we have.
Opportunity is what we see when our perspective is clear and unencumbered.
Opportunity is best understood and seized when we look both fearlessly inside and when we get out of ourselves and see our place as part of the dynamic whole.
Living small keeps us imprisoned in a cycle of issues that are created and conditioned as we move forward each day. We worry about physical, social, and other elements of our being that develop, or mis-develop, with each passing year. Freeing ourselves means leaving so many of those issues behind, overcoming even how our ego is able to handle that. Freeing ourselves means connecting to the possibility that is present in each day – the opportunity to create and grow. Do it for yourself. Do it for those who need you to do it. For the two are one and the same.
