Perspective


For most of my life
 I saw the world from the standpoint of myself, my ego.
Late in life,
I began learning to shift my consciousness
and look out at life
from my soul’s perspective.

On the surface,
the world looked the same,
yet my relationship to reality became completely different.
I didn’t lose my personality in the process
but my outlook changed me dramatically.

By striving to access the Divine resources
that were in me all along,
I gained a wider perspective of my life,
I could see my life and my death as a great adventure.

 I began to understand
my purpose for being here.
I began to discern my potential for growth,
learning,
heart-expansion,
exploration,
 and deepening
even in the most difficult moments.

And I began cultivating
 gratefulness
for absolutely everything that came my way.

I asked myself
If I was focusing my attention
on what was really important.
 How did I get distracted?
Did I see the possibilities for love?
Did I make the best of any situation?
Did I remember my true purpose in life?”

I found a perspective that remembered
 that my purpose was to learn
how to love
and be loved.

I discovered that
no matter what was happening
I could look for the opportunity
to grow in my capacity to love
and to grow in my receptivity of love.

With this new spiritual perspective
and remembering that my soul’s purpose was to awaken to Love,
I began to use EVERYTHING that happened to me,
happy or sad, expected or not,
as an opportunity for love.

This new perspective
taught me
that it’s not the length of life’s journey that matters,
simply its Width
and its Depth.
