"Perspectives - the Journey Within" is a delightful, wise, thought-provoking photo essay based upon the principles of spiritual psycholgy. The author combines her photos from global travel with the wisdom of "sages" like Einstein, Rumi, Emerson, Aristotle et al.

PERSPECTIVES - THE JOURNEY WITHIN


 


Karin Weber's third book, a photo essay, combines her stunning photos from global travels with philosophical quotations from sages like Einstein, Rumi, Emerson, as well as those from a very diaparate population - inmates at California's Valley State Prison for Women. Remarkably, the two groups share mutual beliefs and philosophies about living life fully and well.


Weber's own basic philosophy has been informed by the work of Viktor Frankl and her own volunteering at the University of Santa Monica's  prison service project where she continues to meet many thoughtful and wise women.  She presents ideas like "Control is an Illusion" , "How Do I Perceive Myself - I Can Change My World From the Inside Out" and "Things Happen FOR Us, Not TO Us" and then juxtaposes each concept with quotations from the sages and  the inmates.  Each concept is illustrated with an appropriate photograph from Weber's vast collection and each photo well document s her extensive travels and curiosity about exotic locales and philosophies.


Perspectives is a perfect gift as well as a perfect resource for readers who are thoughtfully defining or redefining themselves and their beliefs. 


 


 

Excerpt
"For a moment, join me in a willing suspension of disbelief. Let's accept that ATTITUDE is a fundamental human issue."

"Over the ages, "PERSPECTIVE" has been contemplated by innumerable sages from varied religious and philosophical traditions as they sought enlighyment, fulfillment, happiness."

"Their words transcend boundaries of time and place; they have touched hearts and minds for generations and will continue to do so. So, I of course chose their words to illustrate my growing belief that perspective or attitude is indeed a choice, regardless of any situation or society."

"What I doscovered next was a real shock!"

"As a result of my frequent participation in a prison service project, I found an additional and unexpected source of wisdom: THE INMATES. To my amazement, their philosphies and beliefs closely paralleled those of the incons."

Sample Chapter:
"CHOOSING HAPPINESS"

"The man (or woman) who makes everything that leads to happiness depend upon hinself (or herself) and not upon other men (or women), has adopted the very best plan for living happily."
Plato

"The greatest value I received is learning my reactinos are all about me - that I control my emotional state. I had no idea I gave so much of my freedom away."
Anonymous, Valley State Prison for Women
