Open Circle

Kelly Bennett presents “Seeing a Bigger Picture” at Open Circle Sunday, October 1, 10:30 a.m. at Lake Chapala Society.

pg16bEarlier in life, I was told that I could benefit from seeing a bigger picture! Just what is a bigger picture? and why would we need a bigger picture? How does a bigger picture relate to the events of my everyday life?
It has been said that human experience is a constant climb to a better and more complete perspective! Did you know that our perspective helps define some of the most basic motivations, like common intent and attitude? Perspective on life even helps define those possibilities that can arise from our experiences! While our intent helps define the probabilities associated with those experiences!

Learn the practical importance of a bigger picture for you! Learn to see perspectives and consider sources. Where do we find all the possibilities? The bigger picture, the whole enchilada.
Examples of wholeness are the inclusiveness of love and the unity of life! In fact, a caring viewpoint can open us enough to include all kinds of possibilities! Just notice what happens when you care. Your heart expands to include more possibilities related to your intent.
Join Kelly at this Open Circle presentation to explore these thoughts and how they can impact your life.
