perspective

One of the things that continues to inspire and confound me in life is perspective.  We take so many things for granted, assuming that our given vantage is correct, real and true and yet from a slightly different angle something seen one way..
 can be something all together different.
A corn feild
 becomes a mass of texture...
 And a may apple,
 becomes a giant
A cloudy sky looking up,
 becomes a viewer when the perspective shifts.
Yet, in our presumption we believe in the singularity of our vantage point without pausing to explore the infinite angles and possibilities inherent in every moment.  Wouldn't it be interesting to adopt a "what if" approach to life, softening our gaze and relaxing the narrowness of concept and belief to allow for a glimmer of the mystery of it all.

This is exactly what I needed to hear. Oh please keep reminding me of this enormous simple truth.
