All of us are facing some type of personal challenge and this post is meant to help you, my dear reader, face your challenges with a new outlook and a stronger mind.
“The perceiving eye is weak, the observing eye is strong.”- Miyamoto Musashi
The observing eye sees events, clear of distraction, exaggerations, and misconceptions. The perceiving eye sees “insurmountable obstacles” or “major setbacks”.
In our own lives, how many problems seem to come from applying judgements to things we don’t control, as though there were a way they were supposed to be?
How often do we see what we think is there or should be there, instead of what is actually there?
If you are facing a problem today, hold back your emotions. Observe the problem, see things as they are and nothing more than they are.
