Our response to the circumstances/situation can interfere with/prevent the solution to the circumstances/situation. Our influence is the uncertain element in the work to balance the equation that is every situation as it arises. In light of Shel Silverstein's observation, "Some kind of help is the kind of help that help is all about, and some kind of help is the kind of help we all could do without," what kind of help do we bring to bear upon the circumstances we encounter in a day? How would we know? How do we evaluate the impact of our own influence? What kind of shadow do we cast on the circumstances at hand? How do we know? We might try walking around watching ourselves in action, just observing without judgment or evaluation. Just seeing. Just hearing. Just knowing. Just reflecting. What role do we play in each situation throughout the day? What are we trying to do? How are we trying to do it? What kind of help we bring to bear on the situations we encounter? How is it received? What is the outcome? How often are you sure what needs to be done? How often are you unsure? What types of situations have the best outcome from your point of view? What types have the worst outcomes? Seek your own insight as an interested observer. What do you have to say in the matter? How do you rate the value of your own participation in the situations arising through the day? What suggestions does your inner observer have to offer? Keep the conversation going through all the days left to be lived. And see what your nighttime dreams have to offer over time. See where it goes...

You ate describing my full time occupation! Gorgeous photo—never heard of this eerie spot.
