Much of our reacting to any situation is based on our point of view. We may not even realize we’re seeing reality through a filter, but that may be exactly what’s happening. One of my teachers told a story of thinking a neighbor was hanging up dirty laundry. But it turned out the windows were dirty. His point of view gave him ultimately a false impression. Has this happened to you?
Now, let’s have a little light fun with point of view. When you saw the above image, what did you think was happening? What did the cat seem to be thinking? And what did the alpacas seem to be thinking? Several weeks ago, I did a caption contest with that image, and the results were hilarious.
- Faculty meeting! –teacher
- Bow down to your king! –holistic cat lover
- Can we keep it? –fitness trainer
- Cat scan! –holistic office administrator
- I AM GOD. –author
- Gather ‘round! –retired professor
- We are not worthy! –software marketer
- Whad’ya think, guys? We s’posed to bow or sumfing? –author
- Sermon on a mount? – retired teacher
- Are you SURE alpacas are vegetarians? –retired insurance estimator
Notice some took the point of view of the cat, and some took the point of view of the alpacas. Which did you pick? What did you think was being communicated? Remember, you are always at choice about your thoughts. Whatever view you take, in any situation, may it lead you to be ever more Healthy Happy Loving Lifesm! Are you in?
