What Do You See?

WHAT DO YOU SEE? The optical illusion above demonstrates that there is more than one way to look at things.  Our perceptions are filtered by our thoughts and attention.  The nature of your thoughts will affect the nature of your life. If you think about unfulfilled desires, drama, or the flaws in people, you will perceive more of the same. If you think about gratitude for what you have, peace in relationships, and the good in every person, then you will find that is exactly what life brings. Life is a mirror of your mind. You can't change what you see until you change how you're looking at it.  Take a close look at how you view life.  Do you like what you see?  If not, perhaps change the way you are looking at it, or change where you focus your attention.  You can't change the world, but you can change the way you see the world.
Be Happy, my Friends-

  2. Hi Laura, I like this post very much, really took me back when looking at the picture. On first glance, I saw a musician playing the sax. Yet looking closely, a girls face came out to me after a minute or so.

    Very interesting post. Agree that our perceptions alter our external lives.

    Thanks for sharing.

  3. Gaddie-
    Thank you for your comment. It is when we change the way we look at things that the things themselves seem to change. I have always loved optical illusions. They force our brain to think in different ways than we are used to thinking.
    Many Blessings-
