After branching off for the last year on a variety of satellite projects, Perspective Mapper is back!
We can call it version 2, or version 15…however we want to look at it…for what I consider my work of cultivating a deeper perspective of who we fundamentally are. You can find the earlier version of the site at “olderversion.perspectivemapper.com“.
This past year, my own self-reflection process has continued unabated. Joy is deeper… inner gravity is stronger…mind is clearer…and feeling a greater sense of unconditional happiness. Though as a viable business, this work is still finding its footing.
Yet, even after numerous unsuccessful attempts (check About section for links to previous iterations), my faith in my own work is paradoxically stronger than ever. The essential need of this type of work, and the importance of my total commitment to it, has become even clearer.
Certain forces in our world might have us to feel we should deny our idealism when things don’t work, or when we err, and that eventually, simply, we should acquiesce and adopt the broken ‘practical’ standards that the world has given us to follow. However, I’ve realized that falling flat over numerous attempts doesn’t have to make us disheartened, desolated or drop our ideals…not at all.
I find if we’re really tuned in on the inside, and are genuinely taking steps to cultivate qualities such as selflessness, self-reflection, forgiveness, love, and understanding, in more and more aspects of our life, we never need to get disheartened no matter what happens or what mistakes we’ve make. We can and should embrace our idealism without guilt, without hesitation. We can continue each step with greater and greater consolation…no matter how things work out.
That said, a lot of my joy comes from letting go of specific aspirations and ambitions. The work can and will take whatever shape it needs to. And letting go of specifics brings tremendous solace, as long as we are firmly anchored on the inside.
These coming years we as a world will have to thoroughly cultivate a broad and deep perspective of who We are. I believe its no longer an option. Our survival as a planet, our ability to define our value to the world, and finding true salvation in our life, depends on this.
Look forward to sharing journey with all of you.
