Inner perspective

Everything you know, everything you experience, is within the context of your own inner perspective. What you think of life determines how you experience life, literally, from moment to moment.

From your point of view, nothing can really be objective. Everything is filtered through your assumptions, your preferences, your fears and your love.

Though you cannot escape your own unique perspective, you can shape it in whatever way you choose. Though outside influences act upon you, inner choices determine how it all affects you.

You will always live whatever you focus upon. Focus on love, on goodness, on respect, compassion, value, joy, and your experience is filled with those good qualities.

No, you cannot change iron into gold merely by thinking it to be so. What you can do is much more powerful, much more beautiful.

You can transform despair into joy, hatred into love, boredom into passion, emptiness into fulfillment. Take care how you think of life, because from your perspective, it affects everything.

— Ralph Marston
