“We don’t see things as they are. We see things as we are.” ~ Anais Nin
Perspective is an interesting concept. In an artistic sense, perspective can give a two-dimensional object the look of being three-dimensional. It gives it depth and it tricks our brain into thinking we are seeing more than the simple lines on that piece of paper or canvas. In effect, we are seeing a different reality.
When it comes to the human condition, perspective takes on a whole new role. Our individual perspective is swayed by our thoughts and beliefs and sometimes those thoughts and beliefs can cloud our judgement. In a very different way, we are seeing a different reality.
It makes me think, if something seems to good to be true, should you ask yourself, “am I seeing it the way it is….or am I seeing it the way I want to see it?”
