Regaining Perspective

Written by on April 1, 2003 in Editorial

When we have our face pressed up against a tree, it is easy to lose our perspective. Our eyes become blurry and things start to look out of focus. Often things become magnified and distorted. By taking a step back, we can regain our perspective. How many times have we found what we were looking for only after we had stopped looking for it?

The news can make us lose our perspective. We usually hear about the few people who had horrible things happen to them that day—we tend to hear about the bad news. By focusing on the negative, we start to believe that our world is unsafe and we feel fear. The millions and millions of people who had a perfectly fine day go unreported. The amazing acts of kindness and caring often are unnoticed. The incredible number of people who made a positive difference in the world that day, who have love and compassion in their hearts, often are even themselves unaware of the difference their presence makes in the world.

In Neale Donald Walsch’s book, The New Revelations: A Conversation with God, he notes how we all have an energy field around our body that extends out to infinity. Thus, we really are all one. By remembering this we can feel compassion and love for all of humanity and we can be humanitarians. We can choose to place our attention on what is working in our lives and in the world around us. We can focus on solutions rather than on problems. What we place our attention on will grow. What will you choose to nourish in your world?

Dr. Masaru Emoto’s Messages from Water books show us that our prayers and thoughts do make a difference. In Dr. David Hawkins’ book, Power vs. Force, muscle testing revealed that love is far more powerful than fear. Interestingly, peace was found to be even more powerful vibrationally than love. We have wonderfully powerful tools that are free for us to use. We can use them to create the kind of world that we wish to live in. Each one of us can and do make a difference. Let us regain our perspective and focus on all that is possible. May each of us find the solutions and the joy that we seek. And when we do, may we share them with others and help to light the world.

In peace & love,

Do all the good you can,
By all the means you can,
In all the ways you can,
In all the places you can,
To all the people you can,
As long as ever you can.
— John Wesley
