the torrents of life

So often we get caught up in the torrents of life, being tossed this way and that by everyday events.  This has a bad effect on the tranquility of our soul.  We become unsettled and unfocused.  Our perspective and clarity are drawn to only the drama of the present moment and we lose vision of the big picture of life.  Our goal is to rise above these events and have a sense of wide perspective at all times.  By imagining the “big picture” of each life event, we gain a peacefulness of the mind and soul.
