A Limited Perspective

No perspective is wrong, but if you only have one, it limits your view of life and in the process it doesn’t allow any other results except those from that one perspective.

Changing perspectives is what makes life different, but it doesn’t make what happens in life different, it only makes the view of what happens different. If you’re locked into a certain perspective, this only allows one view of the way things are and to me the more that perspective is based in the intellect, the harder it will be for there to be a shift in perspective to see things from another view. Not that there’s anything inherently wrong with the intellect, it just doesn’t allow for much openness. When one sees things from a view of only one perspective, it limits their entire life to that one view. Most times this view isn’t even one’s own, it’s formed from someone else’s opinion, teaching, book, video, or discussion.

To be fixated on one perspective keeps you entrapped to the results of only that perspective, think about how limiting that is. No possibility of other views, always going down the same path, never allowing anything new, this is so limiting, but with only seeing things through one perspective how limiting this is will not be seen. Sitting and developing discipline so the minds grip lessens can assist in possibly altering a one perspective mind set, but there has to an inkling there’s another way to see things. It’s not that your way is wrong, it’s just that having only one perspective limits your view of life and in the process it doesn’t allow any other results except those from the one perspective.
