We often feel that we all would ascribe a similar meaning and purpose to most events yet nothing could be farther from the truth. I recall buying a toy for my son when he was about a year old and while my purpose was for him to find meaning and joy in playing with the toy, it turned out he was more captivated with the box instead. J The toy remained unused while the box that contained the toy would become his favorite ‘toy’ for weeks and months to come.
It is all a matter of perception! And this ultimately determines the meaning we ascribe to most events in our lives. Yet what if we could find a central purpose to everything in our life- that of peace of mind? And then what if we allowed the meaning to emerge from this central purpose? What if all our relative ‘functions’ or roles in the world were all given over to a central function of forgiveness and core purpose of peace? Would that not be a much easier way to live?
