We’re constantly surrounded by unfathomables, and if you’re tuned in to them, they can enrich your outlook even though characterized by mystery. Reflections, for example. The sky in a puddle, the treetops in a creek, even your own face in a store window. Nature’s silent videography. Zen teaching points out that the birds fly over the lake, and the lake reflects their journey with nary a ripple.

In life and business, reflection must be honored and intentionally cultivated in order to reap its benefits. Our habitual commerce knows nothing of this. But if you wish to reach for the sky, consider how you can attain it by being a reflector.
