Sometimes in the desire to get our needs met, we do not rise to the ascendant perspective. We create harmful acts towards ourselves and others, and still, somehow expect positive results. Harmful acts never gain positive outcomes. Likewise, positive actions, ones that speak to the “greatest good for all”, never result in harmful outcomes. The reason for this is the interconnectedness we all experience. What we place outwards to others, returns to us. With the ascendant perspective, we can use this interconnectedness to benefit, rather than harm, one another.
