AFGO

I find a deep psychological benefit in the belief that my world is benign, that I am being cared for in ways I don’t understand.  I expect that things will turn out well, and when I’m tempted to regard the unexpected as “trouble”, I look for a perspective from which it appears as an opportunity.

This is a quasi-religious conviction, which cannot be proven true or false by scientific methods, but I like the peace that it lends me, and perhaps it is a stimulus to the discovery of creative solutions.
