Our perspective is a superpower
capable of transforming the world!

Perspective is influenced/impacted
by the 10,000 things,
including where we have been,
what has happened to us,
what has failed to happen to us,
and how we responded to it--
which is a function of perspective!

So, perspective forms/shapes/creates

The key with perspective
is to be aware of it
and what influences/impacts it.

Who would be happy that we see things 
as we do?
Who would be unhappy?
Who do we strive to please?

Our degree of consciousness/awareness
governs our response to our circumstances
and the things our original nature
and innate virtues/traits 
seek to express/exhbit
in and through the response we make.

We communicate who we are--
and how awake we are--
through everything we do,
and the way we do it.

I'm retired, and still finding my way--but now, I don't have to pretend that I know what I'm doing. I retired after 40.5 years as a minister in the Presbyterian Church USA, serving churches in Louisiana, Mississippi and North Carolina. I graduated from Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary, in Austin, Texas, and Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, Louisiana. My wife, Judy, and I have three daughters and five granddaughters within about twenty minutes from where we live--and are enjoying our retirement as much as we have ever enjoyed anything.
