As I relaxed before the birth, I watched an episode of the old film “Early Edition”. The hero believed that it was his task to save a plane from disaster (that he knew was going to happen at a certain time) and he did what he could to do this, He failed because in the meantime he took care of a girl that was hurt in a car accident and he didn’t make it on time to the airport. And he had great qualms of conscience that he didn’t manage.
He was so amazed when it turned out that the father of the saved girl who arrived at the airport at the hour of the expected disaster was the pilot of the plane that did not take off (and hence did not collapse) because of the accident of the pilot’s daughter.
and I just think to myself how limited our perception of reality is. Sometimes a situation when we fail or do not fulfil our plans is a necessary part of a bigger scheme of Somebody who always strives for greatest possible good and who sees better, further and deeper. I
It’s a pity I still cling to my visions and plans. It would be so much easier if I were constantly open to “other than I think”.
Thank you, Gosia, for fresh inspirations and for the title that I like very much.
