“We can develop the capacity to view the lessons of our daily lives as perfect in the way life arranges them at the right time and right place.
“Our high ideals and vision of what might be or what should be, however, are meant as beacons to call us, to direct and inspire us–not as standards to judge ourselves by.
“All sorts of events, both beautiful and terrible, can happen in our world; some we like and approve of, while others we dislike and resist. Perfect faith recognizes that our mind cannot know or assume what is for our highest good; this faith inspires us to appreciate the perfection of imperfection. Such a recognition opens doors to an expanded sense of life.”
~Dan Millman from The Life You Were Born to Live
