When I am able to fully perceive the whole picture of my journey, the individual events have no effect on the whole, but at the same time they have a profound effect on it, which means that I am in full control of the resulting emotion, thought or action.
This means several things:
Whenever something happens on my path that I don’t want, I have the choice to accept it or change it. So individual events may or may not matter.
The moment I have determined the outcome of my journey, then what happens on that journey may be irrelevant when looking at the whole.
So whenever I create what I don’t want, I can simply focus my view on the whole picture of my journey. This view of the whole reminds me that I am able to get through regardless of what has happened or what is happening in the moment.
