The perspective I choose can massively affect the view that I see. I like to interpret perspective as one of the facets on a disco ball, one of the kind that has a whole whack of little square mirrors glued on it. Each mirror faces a unique and different direction. Once I take up a perspective, choose one of the mirrors, to look out from, all other views are no longer available. Whoa, that feels really limiting
We always have a perspective, but most of the time we don’t take a moment to check in with ourselves to figure out what it is. And it can change day to day and event to event. When I am not aware of the perspective I am holding and thus acting from, I may be doing things that, if I was aware of my perspective, I might not choose to do. If my perspective is that you are broken I may start fixing you. Oh oh
I believe, from personal experience, that I have the option to choose my perspectives. As a Coach, my perspective is that you are Creative, Resourceful and Whole (so am I btw). That makes a wide range of positive things possible. I can be ‘with’ anything you bring, can stay curious without judgment, go wherever it is you need to go. Try that with more conventional perspectives that one can hold about others. Hmmm?
Since perspective, choosing which mirror to look out from, has such an overwhelming effect on what my life is like and since I seem to have the choice, why not pick something really significant. May I suggest giving this one a trial run. I call it the Divine hologram and made a very short video about the idea a few years ago.
