“My view is in here! Here is where the birds sing! Here is where the sky is blue!”
(paraphrase: Mr. Emerson)
It is so easy to depend on an outside view – to build up life so that a certain view (or lack thereof) can make or break a moment or an experience. How would life be different if we relied on the view from within? If we relied on ourselves to create beauty, rather than waiting for the world to do it for us? How could we better love our neighbors if our view was not dependent on right or wrong but came from loving first the beauty within ourselves?
My goal is to rely on the view from within – how can I make the birds sing and the sky blue from within, rather than relying on others to create it for me?
