Restoring Balance and Meaning in Ourselves

 Such a beautiful reflection to change the lens on my perspective. Reminds me of Swami Vivekananda's speech on 'microcosm' - the world within - and the 'macrocosm' - the world without. He said that the inner world of a person decides whether any blow from the outer world affects her/him. Similarly, I've also found that if I am not at peace or acceptance with myself, it becomes difficult to accept things in the outside world. Perhaps acceptance of the situation allows surrender, and then we may not be waiting for the synchronicity to happen, making us at peace with the outcome?
