Our perspective is everything, and it carries great power. Two people can be viewing the same event and come away with totally different, even opposite, experiences.
As I mentioned last week, we’re doing some major changes to our website, and it continues to take much of my time and energy. So once again this week we’re repeating an article we wrote quite a few years ago about the power of perspective.

Thank you and this is so timely. The other day the car broke down on the side of the road and the whole family, including the new grandbaby, was in the car. I watched my perspective and consciously chose to release any resistance to the situation and just relax and go with the flow. I was aware of other members of the family, some frustrated, some shut down, the baby just being baby. It’s as I’ve heard before, no situation is either good or bad unless we judge it so. It just is.
Thank you, Raina, for your comments.
Great post, John and spirit.
Funny, I was meditating upon this today, whilst sitting in the garden, and it blew my mind. I was placing myself at various points in the universe and looking at the view from that point, or my perception of course. Then, the big one, I switched my view to the rest of the universe looking towards a single point of central contact and I was at that single point. Made me understand how very abstract and diverse the whole ‘perception’ experience actually is!
There are as many perspectives as there are people, and who knows about the plants, animals etc? Then add to that the Heavenly Hosts, the GWB, multidimensional entities etc and the truth really hits you!
Sometimes I, personally, can be sooo blind and my own worst enemy!!!
Thanks very much for your comments. I know I also can be blind. But the great part about that is when we’re on a conscious spiritual path, we quickly begin again to see clearly.
