A Wider Horizon

"The eyes experience less stress when they can
look upon a wider horizon."

~ R. D. Chin

  1. Whether it be physics or architecture or Eastern forms of meditation or Western forms of prayer, every field of inquiry affirms the fact that the wider our view, the less isolated we are. The more connected we stay to everything larger than us, the less turbulent our time on Earth.
  2. This is why it helps to share our journey with others, because in so doing we become a chorus of voices, and the stress of going solo lessens once we discover that we are not alone.
  3. As light when confined turns to heat, the stuff of our lives when confined ignites brush fires out of our isolation. I felt the difference dramatically when joining a wellness group during my cancer experience. Alone, I was feeling the heat of dying. But once voicing my pain in a circle of others on the same path, my heart relaxed back into the light of living.
  4. So when you see someone stumbling forward with a stone in their heart, simply go near them and listen. When the pains of living feel sharp, open up your attention and give it freely, and the connections will even out the sharpness. When things feel heavy, reach out to whomever is near and distribute the weight.

  • Bring into view a situation that is causing you stress.
  • While keeping that situation in view, inhale and open yourself to the things around you that are not stressful.
  • While keeping both the stressful and the nonstressful in view, breathe slowly and realize that to narrow and to widen is part of being human.
