Perspective

The angle from which we view our world determines what we see, and how we see it, and therefore it heavily influences what we do with our time and energy, what we do and what we do not believe in, what we have faith and hope in, what motivates and inspires us and what attracts and repels us. 

Our perspective then, sets the tone for what we think, how we feel and where we focus and invest our attention and energies. Our perspective directs our intentions, thoughts, choices and ultimately the direction of our lives and our experiences here.

Our perspective is actually an extension of our beliefs and forms the psychic construct of what our world is and our relation to it. 

Our cognitive, perceptive and emotional development, are all inextricably linked to one another, and are in fact one phenomenon, (no matter how much one may prefer to separate them into individual phenomena), and the ultimate breadth and depth of this development determines the angle of our worldview, or Perspective. 

Our perspective is either more objective or a more subjective, depending upon the extent of our overall development and strongly influences our attitude towards the importance of whether or not we actively continue our own personal development.

If our experience has taught us that we are able, and that we can trust ourselves sufficiently, then we are granted access to the control mechanisms of our own inner workings that allow us to deliberately trust, develop and utilize our natural subjective endowments such as intuition.

If our experiences have taught us that we cannot trust ourselves, then we must rely upon the strategies that we have learned from others to navigate our worlds, and we tend favor a less risky life experience that relies upon a more objective observant life strategy. 

Our certainty of what is real and true, is provided us through the reliability of what we can sense in our environment, what we can measure, and what we can see in front of us. As a result our ability to subjectivity choose becomes clouded, atrophies, and ultimately much of our creativity is sacrificed as a result. 

We have no choice but to decide objectively, as our ability to choose for ourselves from within ourselves, no longer provides us with sufficient motivation to do so, we reluctantly settle.
