Perspective

14 Oct

Sometimes it just depends on how you look at things!

The cat may be right! Sometimes I stop and try to look at things from someone else’s perspective. Then it is usually “OK, let me look at it from your point of view, Ummmm, nope, you’re still wrong.” HAHA! Have a nice day.

    Love it! …. this of course is critical to understanding the world around us. However I prefer to use the word “paradigm,” as it implies the extent to which perspective affects our lives, and the way we see the world.

    Anytime I come across something “odd” or could easily be taken for granted, as “another of life’s axioms,” I take notice, …. and consider what would the Woadani do? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Huaorani_people

    It’s a great exercise, when I do I am reminded just how different people’s world view can be; depending on geography, religion, financial status, and their education. It seems obvious enough to say it, but when you do it often it’s amazing the sorts of “perspective” you can gain.

    For instance, one may understand there are large houses full of life’s necessities, where they can pass back and forth a piece of plastic, in exchange for a large quantity of food, while others set out thru the jungle to blow dart monkeys for dinner. Or, you may believe harming someone could cause police to show up and arrest you, where others think they can kill with impunity, anyone who violates their trust. Still, others may be believe Obama thought the Benghazi attack resulted from spontaneous protest, even days after it occurred, without understanding that to do so is (at least) gross negligence, if not a lie.

    Each of the examples above is one of “truth,” depending on “perspective.” The challenge therefore is to journey beyond our “jungle’s edge,” wherever we are, and whoever we are. We may even find ….. Wal Mart was right across the street =P
