CHOOSING OUR PERSPECTIVE IS OUR RESPONSIBILITY.
Our society & culture strongly encourages us to live life as if we are the lead actor in our play. Living in the limelight of the lead role is so tempting. When we choose this perspective, we see ourselves as the centre of our world!
At a normal theatre show, our seated position is fixed based on what it says on the ticket. But in real life, it’s our responsibility to choose where we view our life performance from. We can even change our perspective on life, in every now-moment. It’s our choice! We can change our perspective simply by choosing where we place our attention & awareness. Our focus & perspective is our personal responsibility.
WE CAN HAVE MULTIPLE PERSPECTIVES AT A TIME.
Believe it or not, we can simultaneously hold more than one perspective! We can have the perspective of being an actor on the main stage. But at the same time, we can also have the broader perspective of an audience member. As a result of this additional point of view, we can experience life in a richer and more nuanced way.
From this higher perspective, we might view our lead role on the stage differently. We may become less of a prima-donna and less reactive. We might even be more authentic & more wise in what we choose to do.
HIGHER AWARENESS GIVES US THE BEST VIEW.
With higher awareness we have the ability to proactively choose the best perspective on life. It also allows us to have multiple perspectives simultaneously. Higher awareness gives us the best view of our life! It's a higher & more panoramic view.
