The Central Perspective

Our purpose on this planet is to ensure our perspective isn’t marginalized and is sufficiently expressed. That isn’t to say other perspectives should be ignored (definitely not) — rather, our most important duty, as it relates to our role on this planet, is to ensure our perspective shines forth.

This isn’t something we can consult with others about — if we do, we are hearing their perspective, which in many ways might resemble, but in many ways will differ, from our own.

It isn’t something we can learn — when we learn anything, we are necessarily learning knowledge that relates to our perspective to some degree, but also to some degree doesn’t.

Our perspective can be found by tuning within ourselves — a process strongly linked to a meditation practice, whether we call it meditation or not.
