Everything is a matter of perspective. One can look to the east and see the morning sun where the sun rises in the east and sets in the west. If a person stands in the meadow, looking at the rising sun, the view will look much different to the person standing in the mountains, or on a beach and looks to the east sun.
When the sun sets, maybe the person in the mountains sees the perspective of the one in the meadow and sees his point of view. Regardless of the different views, each is valid. Whether from the meadow, beach or mountains, the sun still rises in the east. It’s all a matter of perspective.
I am in the business of working toward a world where we coexist. One of the very first major road blocks I face on a daily basis, is helping people to believe and understand that this is possible. A big part of it being possible is a willingness for people to see each other’s view points and meet each other half way.
Throughout my journey, I have found it totally eye-opening to see the viewpoints of others. Try it.
Try to see where people might be coming from, discovering that person’s priorities and values, helps to see into their perspective and understand where they might be coming from. You don’t have to agree with their views and you don’t have to accept them as your own. You can choose to take from theirs what serves you and leave what does not.
At some point, we all realize that our differences are really not that different and that we are all battling fears in some form. We all want our own enough for ourselves and loved ones. This is fair.
The best part is that this IS possible. Yes, we have much work to do, but it is possible. All needs, interconnected, means bringing together two polar opposites. It means bringing together two different worlds where they meet in the middle. Keep in mind though, that we only have to do it with one world-ours, the earth.
Where does it all begin? Right here. You are in the right place.
