A Change in Perspective

This brought to mind René Magritte. "L'impire des lumières".

Good Evening, God!

This photo taken tonight brought to mind René Magritte. “L’impire des lumières”.  Magritte loved transforming our perspective. And I am beginning to suspect You do too.

Just this evening I had a reversal of how I have been seeing things. For many years I have decried the GREEDY . . . those who seem unable to arrive at the state of ENOUGH.

Sigh, judging is never a worthy activity.

And tonight I saw that those I have considered “greedy” are actually folks who have never had their value and worth affirmed — just for being themselves. Just as plants grow toward the light . . . so we humans grow toward what we are admired for.

Golly, God. I thought of all the times I had admired someone’s new car . . . new item of jewelry . . . new item of clothing. My intention was just to connect. But, really, I was sending the wrong message. These are people I value for themselves.

Sometimes I haven’t even been honest — about the new car especially. My wonderful husband is a reverse snob …. proud of driving a 2001 RAV 4.

Now, WHAT WOULD HAPPEN if we all STOPPED admiring or praising STUFF? Or on a more positive note — what if we smiled and chatted with each other. Just being a fellow human being is ENOUGH.

And as sheltering in place and social isolation take a firmer hold we have noticed more waving at folks. Our daughter said she was driving down a country road and a walker WAVED at her. The next walker she drove by SHE waved at. How wonderful to connect!

How loving.
