Do patterns confine us or set us free?

Do patterns confine us or set us free?

“From where we stand the rain seems random. If we could stand somewhere else, we would see the order in it.”—Tony Hillerman, “Coyote Waits”—

There is often a pattern to our thoughts, actions, and concerns. The pattern, followed closely, can become a confinement. Sometimes we allow trivial concerns to pile up on us and to close us in like prison bars.

We can close our eyes, package the concerns, and imagine being on a hill looking down at the situation. Everything will look different. From a different perspective, it all becomes easier to deal with.

Cast a big grin down from the hill
Everything is going to be all right
John P. Schulz—“Sweetie Drives on Chemo Days.”
