If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
What/who changed my life and why
What Bugs Me
What Scares Me
With a compass, when you enter a deep forest you will always be able to know in which direction you are headed. You might start to think you are heading east, but the compass will show you are going south. Then you realize, “Oh, I was wrong. It was merely my mistaken thinking that I was going east.”
The compass will always show you the right direction, so you will stop relying on your own guesses. Like this, wherever you are, you have this sense that shows you the truth. Our thinking may lead us elsewhere, but we have the compass. We can let go of our ideas and feelings because we learn that they will lead us the wrong way.
