Quiet Brook...

Sorry, your browser doesn't support Java(tm).

Imagine that you're standing in the middle of the tiny bridge above the brook, gazing at the scenery below. Think of the shapes and forms of the rocks, trees, and foliage. Picture the way the water flows and the way the wildflowers are reflected on the gentle waves.

After you've thoroughly pictured the scene, imagine that you move to either end of the bridge where you sit back in quiet reflection and study the scenery again.

Only this time, the world around you will look different. You'll see different shapes and forms. You'll notice that the water's flow holds a different pattern. You'll see flowers and a play of shadows and light that you couldn't see before.

It just goes to show that we often need to change our perspective in order to see things differently. We don't have to make a major change in order to do so. Often, a minor change can bring about a dramatic difference in our mind's eye and reveal more of the world to us.

We can be similarly blocked in all areas of our life, only seeing the world from a narrow perspective and not getting the whole picture. An unresolved problem or self-doubt can hinder our vision. If so, perhaps only a slight shift in our viewpoint could help us see the situation more clearly and open our minds to a whole new level of understanding.

"Quiet Brook," written and designed by Bobette Bryan, 2002
