Question: What brings back everything into perspective?
Answer: An overall goal.
Only when we set up and keep an overall goal, purpose in life can we render whatever happens to us in the right, purposeful way. Only an overall goal can give our life perspective since without such “flag on top of the mountain” we have nothing to measure, adjust against.
And since alone we are very fragile, feeble and easily lose sight of such goals and perspective, only in a purposeful, mutually supportive, mutually complementing environment can we keep an overall goal and keep the right perspective as we keep pulling, pushing each other towards that goal.
