The life built on the fundamental principle of enhancement will always see the opportunities to improve such things, capitalise and be thankful.
This is mastery of not only a life well-lived but of joy also.
There is a great wisdom in seeing the state that’s foreseen as originally good i.e. perfectly acceptable, then all of a sudden when realised it somehow turns out better, all for a slight, unanticipated change. This serendipity, in actual fact, is a great boon for the person who enjoys same.
Even better; it’s the licking of one’s lips at the sheer brilliance of plans that work out even more favourable than desired.
And these things happen to us all the time, certainly on frequent occasions weekly—if we care to notice.
The key wisdom is seeing this. This is spiritual sight of insight.
