whatcha see?

See-hole Sometimes all we can see is the board in front of us.  Every single grain of its detail stands out…uglies and all!

See-plantThen there are other times when we can see past the board to what lies beyond…to the beauty.

But it’s all a matter of perspective! And the right perspective is crucial.

I was reminded of this just recently when I met someone that just rubbed me the wrong way.  After getting past the “ugh, if I never see you again I’m good with that” feeling I tried to interact again with an open mind. What a surprise to find that this person wasn’t really as miserable as I first thought (still not my favorite person, but better than the start!) I could appreciate who they were, I could see the good in them rather than the gnarlies that came out first!

I wonder what life would be like if I met everyone with the right perspective, looking for the good first, rather than noticing the uglies right away; receiving everyone with an eye toward their amazing God-form, even if it is completely bent out of shape!

I do believe that living with such perspective would cause the world to be a much lovelier place! The world could really use that, don’t ya think?!
