Open to the new
“The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn.”
— Alvin Toffler
How willing are you to learn something new? How open are you to new perspectives?
When we are open, we are willing to move to places we’ve never been before. We are willing to continually review our belief systems so we can test out new ideas.
Be open to seeing things:
- from another’s point of view,
- from a higher and more inclusive perspective
- with a beginner’s attitude of wonder.
“I am always in quest of being open to what the universe will bring me.”
— Jill Bolte Taylor

“We do not see things as they are. We see them as we are.”
We’re each looking through different eyes, bringing our own experiences and emotions to whatever it is we’re looking at. This is perception. Perception can change. The TRUTH remains the same… but do we see it? Do we see spirit in everything and everyone? We must recognize the spirit within ourselves and then we will see it reflected back at us everywhere we go!
