There is no burnt rice to a hungry person. ~Philippine Proverb
Everything we see depends on our perspective or the context of the situation. Sometimes we don’t understand something but later develop a new perspective when we’re ready for new information. Perspective depend on what’s important to us and how we proceed with things. What’s important this morning will not necessarily be important this evening. Our values oscillate depending what we need at that moment. What we need takes precedence over another thing that’s not as important. Just like the quote, the hungry person didn’t care about burnt rice. The hungry person sees no burnt rice, but white rice to fill his or her stomach. The hungry person’s values have swung to the least important until his or her basic needs are fulfilled.
