Dear brothers and sisters: Please check out this NASA Pursuit of Light video clip and find out what it has to teach us on our own quests about “perspective.” The author of creatingreciprocity blog says that perspective is “absolutely irreplaceable in the pursuit of personal and societal happiness.”


It’s all about perspective.

Perspective isn’t just something for art class – it’s essential for understanding.

It’s indispensabile in our quest for truth.

It’s vital for our ongoing safety and security.

And most of all it’s absolutely irreplaceable in the pursuit of personal and societal happiness.

In every sense perspective helps us get the whole picture.

And nothing delivers perspective better than films like this (well, for me anyway)…

    I so agree Granbee… We all see things from a different perspective, I haven’t as yet clicked the video, But I have always advocated that Truth is all a matter of Perspective.. Science is always making new discoveries and the boundaries in which we believed in yesterday change.. So does what we perceive as Truth today change tomorrow.. etc..
    We all of us tend to perceive things from the boundaries of Truth we have long been taught as Truth.. But what if that Truth is no more than someone else’s Perception!? History is full of assumptions and Perspectives.. And now New Things are being discovered which shatter the old Truths , especially as we delve into Quantum Physics .. And we see this World from yet another Perspective.. Pheww.. Mouth full or what.. But I know you know what I mean Granbee, sorry not a lot of time this evening.. And I haven’t been on here since Sunday.. Will be back to catch your own posts I see in my Looooooong Email lists.. Take care my Great friend xx

      This reblogged post did help to remind me of why I always found the study of physics so very poetic and spiritual, Sue! Love having you here whenever and however you can be!

    Whatever limits I place on my willingness to see ~ they’re the same limits I put on my world. For every person, there is a parallel reality defined by their perceptions, fears and desires. We struggle so much because (try as we might) we cannot explain our realities but yet (most often) assume it is the only one that’s ‘normal’. Unfortunately (or fortunately), that’s the way everyone feels and so no one explains anything to anyone (I’m normal and you’re broken). And there’s the sadest truth of all – we don’t communicate and we assume a reality and an eternity based on our little vision. Ten thousand eternities swim around us and we can’t see past the end of our own fingers. Thank you for the reminder, Rose. ~ Love, Bobbie

      So much of how we live depends on our perspective, doesn’t it. We need to STOP and BE and SEE with the eyes of our souls, don’t we. So pleased to have your wonderfully thoughtful commentarly here today!

    loved it Rose
    so agree with you
    to understand and gain a better prespective its always better to keep an open and eager to learn mind
    if we close our senses to everything around nothing will get in,,,,A lot many times what we believe in changes with the change in where we are standing …
    I love this Alphonse Karr quote “Some people grumble that roses have thorns; I am grateful that thorns have roses.”

    If only the world…the humans in it…would consider perspective more…and not let assumptions rule their opinions and actions. Thank you, as always, for sharing all that you do!

      Perspective requires frequent readjustments of the lenses on the apertures of our souls, I have found, Diane! Let us support each other in these ongoing adjustments.
