One of the things that I strive to do in my consulting is to understand that there is always another way to look at things. Perspective is often what is missing when it comes to our view of the world. When my life has begun to spin out of control or things are simply not going my way, I know that I can choose to see from a different vantage point. I have even imagined that I can fly 30,000 feet up and see my problems, as well as the problems in the world around me. This view helps me to realize that those problems are really very small in comparison to what they could be. I then pull that layer of film off of my eyes and reveal the peace and the beauty that is beneath the surface. It isn't that the peace and tranquility was missing before. It is just that it was clouded with wrong perspective.
In each situation that I find myself in, I have a choice of which vantage point I will choose. I can choose the see the fog that my ego would create or I can choose to reveal the beauty that was always there, the part that was making up actual reality without the fog. The choice is mine and it always has been. The choice is also yours. Think about the situations that you have in your life right now and try to see the positive vantage point. If someone that you wanted in your life isn't there, could it be because someone better is waiting? If you miss out on a business deal, could it be that a bigger deal was really intended for you? You get to choose how you see and interpret the world around you. That is your choice and it is the greatest gift that has ever been bestowed upon you.
Use that gift to throw kindness around like confetti! See the beauty in all that occurs and build your life around the truth of peace and love. Fear cannot exist where love is all-consuming!
