The comments we got in response to our last blog post, Hell on Earth, turned into a lively discussion on perspective. I found it curious to read all the various perspectives on perspective.

As we all know, our personal perspective can influence our lives positively or negatively.

Here’s a magnificent real-life example of how our perspective can powerfully and positively influence our lives. This one will probably bring tears to your eyes.

Over the years my spirit guides have talked many times about how perspective — the way we choose to view our lives, no matter how “good” or “bad” those lives may be — can either sink us or help us swim. Here are a few bits of their wisdom.


Craig, that young man in the video, is a magnificent example of seeing yourself through the eyes of God, through the perspective of Spirit. He doesn’t consider his “disability” limiting in any way. In fact, it’s freed him to be more of who he really is than he might otherwise have been.

If you see painful situations from your higher self’s perspective, your pain will go away. Only love remains — and freedom.

Changes or “disabilities,” painful and difficult as they may appear from your human perspective, are always for your highest good. If you could see you as we do, you’d never have another “bad” day again.

God never judges you — you do a very good job of that all by yourself. Be easy on yourself. Love yourself. Then you will find the joy and freedom you came to this lifetime to experience. Your perspective is everything.


What are your thoughts about Craig and others like him? Are these folks really “disabled?” Or is it just the rest of us who are disabled by our self-imposed restrictions — by our limited perspectives? Please share with us below.
