Default sumthin to think about

from some TV hack:


I've been told that if you change your mind, you change the world - or at least the way you experience it. Let's take a moment to examine that. The presumption is, if you thought the world was a hostile, ugly place filled with awful people doing awful things, that is what you'd see. Your mind would naturally seek out confirmation for its preconceived ideas (e.g., if you're intent on buying a red car, as you go about your day you'll see lots of red cars). If, however, you were able to sincerely change your mind and see that we are all God in drag, that we are the conscious aspects of a perfect universe which had to create us so we could bear witness and stand in awe before its loving magnificence, then that is the soul-shaking reality you'd be greeted with each and every moment of each and every day. In other words, it is entirely our choice as to what kind of world we live in. With a simple decision, we can suffer in the darkness or play in the light. We can be angry, frightened and enslaved, or loving, joyous and free.


I know. It's a toughie.

I notice the world doesn't respond very well to any one person's perspective, and that this is often good.

Outside the tiny reality of civilization, there's phsyics, which doesn't seem to respond at all to individual perspective.

Oh that's grand, so...you do not exist? The OP has a point because there are millions of 'worlds' as everyone is living on their own.

It's true that the cruel, cruel material 'world' ends up breaking up so many 'realities' but, no problem, the process starts all over again. Ad infinitum. Anyway, I fail to see the good side. Good for whom? Not for us, that's for sure.
There's no denying children are happier than adults.

So... the incredibly rich, famous, powerful and successful guy thinks everybody else should just lighten up? Is that the gist of it?

I wonder what his perspective would be if he had to live in a war torn battle zone, or maybe if he was a playtoy in prison after being wrongly convicted of a crime, or maybe if he was born with a serious mental defect like depression coupled with schizophrenia, a little bit of chronic pain, brain tumor and anal cancer thrown in for good measure.

Perspective can be a powerful tool, but Chuck Lorre is also a tool.
