IF I had to go out into that scene to perform
some task or do some work or to travel to
some place, would I still feel peaceful?
OR would I be concerned about the slippery
ground and the coating of ice on all those
surfaces? I had not thought about that!
Looking outside while standing inside makes
me feel peaceful because I only have to look
at the scene, not deal with the consequences
of a winter storm “dump” of ice and sleet.
SO is life the same way?
Can I look at some “scene” and
while those having to deal with it
are not peaceful?
DO I stand inside my safe place and criticize
others for not being peaceful as they face
the consequences of some “dump” of
circumstances that do not concern me
because I am still standing inside my safe
place just “looking” and judging?
DO I need to think about the world outside
my safe place, about those who live outside
my safe place and what they face outside
my safe place?
I am not sure I like where this might lead me
. . . outside my safe place
. . . still a peaceful scene – outside?
• how I see
• what I see
• why I see
Perhaps I need to take a deeper look
at my perspective . . .
inside AND outside
