I recently had a problem with a person. I decided after some contemplation that there was a reason for our conflict and that I was to be a blessing for this person. I was to point out the high road through the heart and the low road through the mind.
I thrashed this situation in my mind for a while and felt in a way that it was resolved. You know what? Later that day I received a call from that person and they amicably resolved their issues with me. I was able to shift my perception of aggravation into the perception of opportunity by considering how I could be a blessing in this situation. The result was that the whole situation shifted!
