A man went out for a walk. He came to a river and saw a woman on the opposite bank.
"Yoo-hoo," he shouted, "how can I get to the other side?"
The woman looked up the river then down the river then shouted back, "You're already on the other side."
Life and truth is often a matter of perspective and viewpoint.
I thought about that issue for a good part of the day.
It was short and somewhat funny but extremely profound.
Do you realize how many people are trying to get to the very side that you are already on while you are trying to get somewhere else?
Do you know how many people wish they had a good husband or wife like you do?
Do you realize how many couples wish they could have children like you do?
Do you know how many suffering people wish they had a pain free body like you do?
Do you know how many people wish they just had enough money to pay their basic bills like you do?
Do you realize how many people wish they could get to the weight that you are already at?
Do you realize how many people wish they had a job like you do?
Do you realize how many people wish they could see like you can?
...could hear like you can?
...could walk like you can?
I, like most of you reading this, wish for many things. I have a lot of dreams and visions.
"Perspective" really made me think and realize that with so many of the rivers of life, I'm already on the "other" side... and so are you.
