“Life is the movie you see through your own eyes.
It makes little difference what’s happening out there.
It’s how you take it that counts.”
— Denis Waitley
Thinking of what we see through our eyes as a movie is a pretty interesting way to consider. He says, “Hey, Mabel, did you see that over there?” She says, “Didn’t see a thing. What are you talkin’ about?”
Ever read an accident report of several eyewitnesses telling radically different stories?
The other night I watched a documentary about the 1906 Earthquake that devastated San Francisco. Someone living in one section of the city felt a slight rumbling and in other parts of the city, 500 blocks were leveled from the shaking and resulting fires. It is one event that is seen in many different ways–through the eyes of that person.
You could say that it was not one event, but thousands of events, each watched, viewed, lived by each individual. No one experience was identical I’m sure. Indeed, even some 50 miles away to the north, cities such as Santa Rosa were even more devastated by the same quake they call the San Francisco 1906 Earthquake.
So, it isn’t the event. It isn’t what happens. It is our own perspective of an event or happening and how we think about it, feel about it, react and respond to it that counts. Our views of life are our own.
