A matter of Perspective

At the Top of Moro Rock

Good Morning, God!

I’m on stage 10 of my 11 stage trip and THANKFUL! Thankful for each separate stage — thankful for the family and friends I’ve been blessed with — thankful for the beauty of the World around me.

Thankful too, for the changes of perspective I’ve been given. Simple ones like seeing Moro Rock from the TOP (as seen by Kit, not me) and seeing Moro Rock from below when we were stopped by the road improvement project.

The world as seen by my younger grandson — in which I was a grievous disappointment technologically speaking — and the world as seen by my brother-in-law with his 8 year old computer — are so different.

Looking UP at Moro Rock

Where we STAND — topographically or generationally — makes an enormous difference in what we see. Ah, now, God! Would that we could see if from YOUR perspective!

What does TIME look like to YOU, the Creator of Time? And, then, there is the even more dizzying question of keeping track of us ALL — the one-day May fly and the 2,800 year old Sequoia — and the BILLIONS of people! Hmmm. And the billions of galaxies, too.

All of it is Too MUCH in quantity and quality for my mind. And I guess that is one of the reasons why people think You don’t exist. Hmmm. Yes, just WHO do I think I am talking with?

A COMPASSIONATE BEING! Yes, I FEEL that I am talking to a Compassionate Being. I am thankful for Jesus because I can’t imagine anything MORE than human. I can imagine BETTER HUMANS but not the MORE than Human that people “reach for” when they talk about The Force, or THE GREAT SPIRIT.

And I know that Compassionate is but one aspect of YOU — but, at this point in my life, it seems to be the quality I value the most. Help us, God, especially in this election year, become more compassionate beings.

Story teller,
