Thursday, June 12, 2014: Today you're asked to expand a little further, open a little wider and explore a little deeper. Your perspective is always limited by how much you know, so step out of your comfort zone and have an experience that expands your perspective.
If you're in a situation that you don’t understand, don't let it darken your day... change your perspective and see it from a different angle... this makes any situation easier to handle. Remember, no situation, in and of itself, can truly be judged as good or bad, lucky or unlucky, fortunate or unfortunate, only time can tell the whole story. So... Have a little faith that things will work out in their own good time, keep the big picture in mind, be pragmatic and do your homework.
It's seems important to remind you that these daily musings paint a picture of the energetic and emotional underpinnings of each day. Which may feel good to some, but not so good to others. What these musings mean to each individual varies according to the events impacting that individual's life and how that individual experiences them. There are countless scenarios.
As an example, today's sky asks that you expand your perspective... it doesn't say "why" you need to do this or how you'll do it. So... keep in mind, that whether you're looking for greater understanding, a great party, new friends or a new job... in every case you're looking for an experience that will expand your perspective.
There was once a young man who lived in a very poor village in China. But because the family owned a horse, they were considered wealthy. One day, while out for a ride, the boy stopped to rest, and his horse ran away.
On his return home, the villagers went to his father to express their sorrow for the family’s great loss. “Very bad luck!” they cried. The sage-like father shook his head and calmly said, “Maybe good. Maybe bad.”
The following day, the boy went out to hunt for the missing horse, and to his great joy found a herd of wild horses, which he was able to round up and bring back to the village. The excited villagers exclaimed, “What great fortune—your luck has returned!” The wise elder again calmly said, “Maybe good. Maybe bad.”
The next morning, while trying to tame one of the wild horses, the boy was trampled and left crippled.
The loss of a healthy son is indeed a sign of bad luck.
And when the village people saw the young man’s mangled leg, they went to the father to express their sympathy for his change in fortune. The elder man’s reply was the same: “Maybe good. Maybe bad.”
Within the week, the Chinese army marched into the village and rounded up all the able-bodied young men—to take away to war.
