Thorny Issues ...

Sometimes life is hard. Right now, our precious world feels fragile and under huge threat. Thorny issues abound: the Trump presidency, the politics of corruption and greed, severe water shortages, mounting anger in the face of prolonged injustice despite the supposed gains of democracy over oppression, to name a very few.

How, then, do we practice Appreciation, five times more than we focus on all that is wrong in these painful and complex challenges? The art of generating a full picture of reality is contained in this Component from the Thinking Environment™. It is not to the exclusion of seeing the thorns that we notice the roses, it is in addition. And every “rose” we notice and value, helps us to be more intelligent in our relationship to the thorns.
