Perspective Changes Everything; Horses Please the Eye and the Mysterious Calabai Yau Redux


If a picture is worth a thousand words, here:
This horse
and
 this horse

are one and the same.

Just 60 seconds difference, and angle changes and light.
yes,
one might add some playlayers,
But the point is,
No matter how smart you are, or think you are, or others think you are,
stepping outside the box
Looking through a Different angle
Lens
paradigm shift
three dimensions instead of two
will blow or ease your mind open.

You can go to the "threads" online at any political or moral or issue driven site, and if they are suspicious that you are a "troll" or spy, they will interpret your words differently than if you say those very words to your friends or acquaintances. Everyone is afraid of being quoted or misconstrued. The world has become a GOTCHA playground.

If you want to build a ship don't herd people together to collect wood and don't assign  them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the  endless immensity of the sea. Antoine-Marie-Roger de Saint-Exupery    Now that my house has been burned down, I have an unobstructed view of the rising moon. Traditional Buddhist wisdom.  Do not wait for leaders; do it alone, person to person. Mother Teresa      What one fully understands cannot be God. Augustine of Hippo   

   The question is not, "Can they reason?" nor, "Can they talk?" but rather, "Can they suffer?"  ~Jeremy Bentham  Think occasionally of the suffering of which you spare yourself the sight.  ~Albert Schweitzer         I care not much for a man's religion whose dog and cat are not the better for it.  ~Abraham Lincoln          
               When I was twelve, I went hunting with my father and we shot a bird.  He was laying there and something struck me.  Why do we call this fun to kill this creature [who] was as happy as I was when I woke up this morning.  ~Marv Levy    
   If a group of beings from another planet were to land on Earth - beings who considered themselves as superior to you as you feel yourself to be to other animals - would you concede them the rights over you that you assume over other animals?  Attributed to George Bernard Shaw                When a man wants to murder a tiger he calls it sport; when the tiger wants to murder him he calls it ferocity.  ~George Bernard Shaw  
      Bless your persecutors; bless and do not curse them. Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep. Have the same attitude toward all. Put away ambitious thoughts and associate with those who are lowly. Do not be wise in your own estimation. Never repay injury with injury. See that your conduct is honorable in the eyes of all. If possible, live peacefully with everyone. Beloved, do not avenge yourselves; leave that to God's wrath, for it is written, "Vengeance is mine; I will repay," says the Lord. But "If your enemies are hungry, feed them; if they are thirsty, give them something to drink…”  Do not be conquered by evil but conquer evil with good.   Paul                    
 For it isn't enough to talk about peace. One must believe in it. And it isn't enough to believe in it. One must work at it.  Eleanor Roosevelt     
  Until lions have their historians, tales of the hunt shall always glorify the hunters.  African Proverb    Let us plant dates even though those who plant them will never eat them. We must live by the love of what we will never see. This is the secret discipline. It is a refusal to let the creative act be dissolved away in immediate sense experience, and a stubborn commitment to the future of our grandchildren. Such disciplined love is what has given prophets, revolutionaries, and saints the courage to die for the future they envisaged. They make their own bodies the seed of their highest hope.     Ruben Alves, Tomorrow’s Child  
  The World is a Reflection of Yourself
If you see good in people, you radiate a harmonious loving energy which uplifts those who are around you. If you can maintain this habit, this energy will turn into a steady flow of love. Annamalai Swami

"Perhaps they are not stars, but rather openings in heaven where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us to let us know they are happy." Eskimo Proverb

 What other people think of you is none of your business. Regina Brett

Take nothing but photos, leave nothing but footprints, break nothing but silence, kill nothing but time." the Explorer’s Code "At any given moment there is an orthodoxy, a body of ideas which it is assumed all right-thinking people will accept without question. It is not exactly forbidden to state this or that or the other, but it is 'not done'... Anyone who challenges the prevailing orthodoxy finds himself silenced with surprising effectiveness."—George Orwell
Eternity is not something that begins after you are dead. It is going on all the time. You’re living in it now. Charlotte Perkins Gilman

Life is eternal, and love is immortal and death is only a horizon; and a horizon is nothing save the limit of our sight. ~Rossiter Worthington Raymond "If you want to be happy all your life, make a garden." –Chinese Proverb 
We should know that we are all part of the whole, we are all together. And everything that we do affects each other. Yoko Ono
