Someone had once told me that perspective is relative. I never really thought about it until today. Perspective is like opinions, everyone has one. Perspective is how you look at life and things in life. How someone interprets things around them. It also helps you to interpret what you see and read to make sense of it. Everyone has one and has the right to have one. A good example of this is an Alligator worshiper wants to be thrown to the Alligators to be eaten because in his perspective its an honor to be eaten by the alligators whereas someone like me would be like, “Oh hell no!” This is one of the many reasons why I feel that the golden rule doesn’t work… But, that’s for another post.
From learning the true meaning of the word perspective, one would achieve understanding and tolerance for others around us. I do my best to learn from perspective and have a greater understanding of it so that I may evolve into a more intelligent being. As Author Richard Bach once wrote in his book Illusions, “Perspective, use it or lose it.” Well, I sure as heck don’t want to lose it. This is today’s thought of the day.
