Ruby Shoes, The Looking Glass, and Why Perspective Matters

“Change the way you look at things,
the things you look at change.”

~ Dr. Wayne Dyer

The Cambridge Dictionary describes perspective being, “a particular way of viewing things that depends on one’s experience and personality.” Viewpoint is the inherently subjective foundation determining thoughts and shaping attitudes, beliefs, emotions, decisions, and more. Vantage, an instantaneously shiftable position, offers tremendous possibility birthing dreams.

Are what we say and who we actually are the same? Do we sufficiently and thoroughly question the stories we tell ourselves? How does who think we are inform the cynosure we choose? When and to what degree, for our current state, do we take responsibility?

“We don’t see things as they are;
we see them as we are.”

~ Anaïs Nin

“Life is what you make it,” suggests the observer is also the creator. Events, in themselves, are both factual and have the distinct interpretation they are assigned. The same situation, even when affecting many, depending on each person’s particular inclination, is attributed very specific significance.

Desire and discomfort are often primary motivators prompting deeper self-analysis. Life’s ebbs and flows offer us continuing opportunities reevaluating the meaning we assign circumstances, interactions, people, places, and things. Occurrences, at first, may seem most unfavorable, and then nurture immense compassion, determination, enlightenment, forgiveness, humility, serenity, and more.

“If you nurture your mind, body, and spirit,
your time will expand;
you will gain a new perspective
that will allow you to accomplish much more.”
~ Brian Koslow

Consider a curious child anxiously scampering up a beckoning, sturdy, tall tree. The youth excitedly welcomes adventure certain all will be well. The adult mind immediately identifies how safety is not ensured and determines exploring the tree is unwise. The appropriate approach may be assimilating both assessments and simply, with tremendous awareness, proceed. The conditions are identical, and the only distinction is how pertinent information is processed.

An excellent example is the dandelion, Taraxacum officinale, a flowering herbaceous perennial plant of the Asteraceae family. The definition determines the treatment. Landscapers may perceive the lovely sunshine-hued blooms without any aesthetic value and remove them. Naturopaths. beyond celebrating their simple beauty, understand their value and orally and topically apply their immense health benefits.

“To effectively change ourselves,
we first had to change our perceptions.”
~ Stephen R. Covey

Alice of Wonderland, Dorothy of Oz, and numerous fictional characters’ spectacular journeys illustrate how even the slightest reframing influences the entire picture. Alice’s physical alterations automatically inspire new inquiries providing expansive insight. Dorothy’s empowering realizations and renewed gratitude remind us we always have the choice.

Perspective’s fluid, malleable nature invites expansive awareness, honesty, and illumination. The internal state scripts the external world. Our constantly reevaluating what we are absolutely certain is true guides deeper self-exploration opening the body, heart, mind, and spirit. Transformation, the ultimate, power, by slightly and simply adjusting our focus, offers us tremendous growth making us simultaneously student and teacher mastering our destiny.
