“When you understand the value of differing opinions, you will reap immediate value from every relationship; and since you cannot make others change to please you, appreciating them where they are will give you ease.”
“The more perspectives that enter the mix, the greater potential for wonderful creations. Even when you feel strong opposition to the opinions and perspectives of others, your interaction with them provides the basis for expansion and solutions and answers that you would not have access to without their seemingly problematic positions.”
“We encourage you to make peace with everyone who opposes you and with everyone whom you oppose, not only because you cannot insist on their yielding to your perspective but because their opposing perspective is of tremendous benefit to you.”
“You see, because of your exposure to what you perceive as their wrong or bad or unwanted behavior or perspective– you have given birth to an improved situation. And just as they helped the problem side of the equation to come into focus, they helped the solution side of the equation to come into focus, also; and that solution waits for you in your Vortex of creation.”
“…When you make peace with those who differ in desire and belief and behavior from your ideas of what is appropriate, you do not perpetuate what you consider to be wrong. Instead, you align with the solution side of the equation that has been waiting for you in your Vortex of creation.”
~Esther and Jerry Hicks from Getting Into The Vortex
