We may not be free to change the world as it is but we are free to change how we understand it. It is about how we interface with the world and with God.

Even if you succeeded in convincing me of your tragic circumstance I have done nothing to assist you.
Attitudes and reactions are attracting forces. Especially once we reach the age of accountability we invite our own conditions through our frame of reference.

How empowering to have the faith, innocence and trust of a child with the skill set of an adult.
