What better way to overcome the seeming trappings of this world than by seeking higher ground?
Higher ground provides a perspective to see with a wider lens, catching nuances or aspects we hadn't seen before. Higher ground gives space and potential objectivity, bathing us in a chance to breathe and calculate a meaningful response rather than reacting. Higher ground allows a path to be kind and let people have the benefit of the doubt. When we take this opportunity we may refrain from speaking unkind words and perhaps, instead, uplift someone or a situation.
The next time we feel caught by an overwhelming emotion or believe we are trapped by the perceived confines of life, seek and find that higher ground - whatever that looks like for each of us. Once there, open up to witness the expansiveness and wholeness of who we are, and in that space define next steps or approach for ourselves.
The world requires and is in need of our participation. It is comforting, inspiring, and empowering to periodically, yet consistently, view our participation from the higher ground as the results are usually light infused.
