seeing the total design ~ Tenzin Palmo

We are weaving, moment to moment, with our thoughts and words and deeds, we are weaving our tapestry. Mostly we only see a very small part of what we’re weaving – and we only mostly are seeing it from the wrong side, so we see all the loose ends and the back of it. We don’t see the whole picture. So if there are lots of dark threads we think ‘Oh this is very dark, this is very ugly, this is very difficult this problem.’ But if we could go the other side, and stand back and see the whole vast tapestry, we would recognize that even those dark threads are necessary for the total design.
