A MATTER OF PERSPECTIVE.

A MATTER OF PERSPECTIVE. People see what they think they will see. A wise man told me: “Everyday I work hard in the garden. Also every day, I relax in the garden and read a book. There are many people who see me and greet me as they pass by. There is one man who always passes by while I am working and so he always sees me working, and there is another man who always passes by while I am relaxing, and so he always sees me relaxing. The first man often says: “you always work so hard”…while the second man always says: “you are always relaxing”. They are so convinced of their judgements, that reality shapes itself to fit their ideas. It is a matter of perspective.”
