If we wish to expand our vision, we take a step back, look at our situation, and see where we fit in the bigger scheme of things. We might look up to the stars and feel both an amazing connection to the entire universe and recognize what a small, insignificant piece of it we are.
If we wish to envision the future, we see that current resources, such as water, are limited. We might plan for our future, conserve energy, and live in such a way that life can continue. We could honor the Native American concept of living sustainably to benefit the seventh generation into the future.

Let us remember this while we are experiencing the burden and transform it into a joy.
