Here's what a perspective is...

What’s A Perspective?
Bill Cottringer

What’s in a perspective?
What you see
From where you’re seeing.
Usually just one half
Of a whole picture;
Incorrect and incomplete,
Often misjudged
As true of false,
Good or bad,
Useful or useless.
What’s your connection
To their reality?
Everything and nothing,
Subtracting, adding
Or changing;
Getting stuck.
But here’s the magic:
Don’t like what you see?
Don’t need new eyes;
Change places or times;
Nothing you see
Will ever be the same.
Like the Zen master said,
When ordering a hot dog,
I’ll take one,
With everything.

"if you can see yourself as others see you and at the same time see them as they see themselves you have partially cleansed the doors of perception"

thought provoking poem ... like how you end it ...
