Through the looking glass. PERCEPTION is an amazing and most powerful instrument. And to think that it is an instrument of the MIND’s EYE. The more I learn and come to understand HOW THINGS WORK, the better equipped I am at making THINGS WORK FOR ME. Hindsight is 20/20 and if I only knew then what I know now, I DEFINITELY would have taught my children the principles I’ve only in recent years begun learning myself and oh what an advantage and edge would they really have!!. However, it’s never to late to learn, and it’s never too early to share.
The moment I stopped questioning the WHY about everything EXTERNAL in my Universe and instead began asking the question WHY about everything INTERNAL within myself, MY world and THE world for me began to change. I realized that I was not born or given the gift of life to TAKE from this life/world I live in but to GIVE to it. The world does not exist FOR ME, I exist FOR THE WORLD. I am here to make my contributions and my mark. That is my journey; one of difference, one of impact, one of promise. What I am able to do for mankind is measurable by not only how I see myself, but how skilled I am at my adaptability to a changing environment and a host of vibrations from a suffering people (on the whole). Don’t get me wrong, everyone is not suffering but as long as there’s one person hungry, one person homeless, one person lonely, one person ill…. we all suffer. A whole is equal to the sum of its parts, and until we begin to embrace that we are all of one race, THE HUMAN RACE, we will forever be divided by our ‘perceptions’.
There’s a saying that to make a change you must first start with the man in the mirror (the looking glass). Well I’m going to say that sometimes while looking through the looking glass one forgets that in the REFLECTION, everything you see is realistically in REVERSE. … and so begins the err of being human. We look at things from a perspective of seeing outward instead of inward. Once we begin to understand that what will heal us all is the LOVE WITHIN, looking WITHOUT for gain becomes null and void for from that point forward the only search we find ourselves outwardly engaged in is MAKING A DIFFERENCE WITH THE GIFT OF US!
