Perspective Creates Our World

By Amba Gale

A blind child

Perspective Creates Our World

Three Viewpoints,
Upon Reading Kikakou’s Haiku in Mark Nepo’s Book of Awakening

By Amba Gale

The son

Darkness, they think.
Yet, touching you,
Your beauty speaks, reaches, deepens, touches
my own.

and celebrate.

I have pity,
for he cannot see

deep into his soul.

The Cherry Blossom

May I arrest you
as you reach out
to see me
to touch me.

I am here
for All to touch,
to free you
to your own beauty, inside.

Instead, they listen, deeply, and then they…

And, if you follow it you will be true to your own North Star. It will not fail you. No matter the turbulent and unprecedented circumstances of your life. For one thing, you will know that you are being guided. For another, you will know the Guidance is true. The Future, If you let it, will magnetize you into it. Do not let your mind or your considerations, whatever…
