5. Introduction to Perspective - It Changes EVERYTHING.

I just realized something very powerful.

The way I see the world is beautiful.

I see patterns inside the nuances of human connection.
I am able to often see the vivid causality of intention and action;
as it meets execution and interpretation;
and morphs into a relationship, and then,
slowly, wonderfully, awkwardly becomes love.


Oh, what’s that emotion? I haven’t felt that one before?
That slippery fucking word: Love.



Who knows it best? Who does it best?




Had it not been for the way I was taught to enjoy life, surely the overwhelming moments of despair I have felt would have been enough to tear me from this world with little regard. But early on, I was given the gift of a seer. 

This is not a prophetic or magic gift, in fact, it is one all humans have the ability to acquire. It's life-giving brilliance lies in it's simplicity. 

Somewhere along the way, I was taught to see the awe-inspiring force within all things. 
It is this intricate subtle inclination to perceive such wonder, which has saved me from making a permanent home for myself on the dried up riverbanks of desolation and hopelessness. 

It is one of those mystic but intentional actions wherein the more it is done, the more natural it becomes, until finally you are able to take the breeze, dispose of its "chill" and drink its sweetness. The greatest gift I could ever give you artistically,
is describing the way I see things... Soulosophy.





I pay little mind to what they say I’m losing because of how I spend
my time solving these equations of individuality, spirituality,
and emotional duplicity. Generally, people DO things differently because they SEE things differently. 



Today we have forgotten how to have a conversation about the way someone else sees things. We are locked in to our view, our vision,
and when entering a “conversation” we are thrilled at being given the opportunity to voice our beliefs. Yet, it seems as though, despite the amount we are “expressing” ourselves and our opinions online; as a society most people still feel unheard, like they are lacking connection, and ultimately lonely? 


How is that? This might be a different matter all together, but one can attest to this loneliness by what usually happens when we sit with most people today. It feels much like they drain out their unheard insides (like they have not been truly heard by another human soul in ages). I think we can also partially attribute this to our perspective on what we have come to understand as "sharing".
For me, the experience of “sharing” is based on human exchange of:
1. thoughts 
2. energy
3. action 
4. & play. 




There are some that might say, the comment section beneath a post; is an example of such an “exchange”. Put very simply and in the most respectful manner, I would have a different perspective than those people. 
Generally people DO things differently, because they SEE things differently.

4. The Magic of Dogs


The magic of a dog.


I’ve often thought about what it means to be a cat lover or a dog lover. What does it say about you? Your personality? Your characteristics? Your likes? 
Your independence? 
Your loyalty? 

Is it what you seek, because of what you lack? 
Or what you seek, because of what you are? 
   

I have a relationship of mutual respect with cats. I don’t mess with them, they don’t mess with me. 

I am not drawn to them, nor are they drawn to me. But let's be honest, cats are rarely drawn to anything other than what they desire in that moment. I respect them; but because of our estranged relationship, I cannot speak of cats. We are not close enough for me to do so, and I would not like to put that delicate relationship in jeopardy. 

Dogs, well that's an entirely different story.

Dogs are magic. They are wonder filled monuments of comprehension. Testimonies to the human race on love and loyalty and everything in-between. Their empirical senses go far beyond what any of us could imagine. More than this, they are bastions of igniting self-belief in others. And the greatest part, they seem happy to do it. In fact, how well they can do it seems to be their crowning achievement. 
I know entire lives that have changed because the life of this sacred animal was at play. They are teachers of love and compassion and loyalty. 

You could say I’m a dog guy. It would be hard to come to these conclusions about dogs without having grown up with or around them. I’m not so fond of the little ones (barking, I own the world little shit ones). 

But even those little guys got a lota’ heart, a lota’ smarts, and a lota' character. And you can bet your ass they got mounds of loyalty.




*sidenote: 
I prefer a big ol’ somuma-gun you can wrestle with. 



I had an interesting and somewhat troubling thought one afternoon watching my neighbors dog play in the yard. It came in the form of a question. 

(It is worth nothing that from my experience, the source of the majority of brilliant discoveries is the right question. We spend our lives chasing answers when most often the answers we seek are right there waiting for us to stumble upon them, behind the right question. If we would spend the time instead, asking and chasing the right question, every answer we seek will show itself to us.)


"Do dogs know the overwhelming way society 

leans on them?"

Can they feel the burden of this weight? 


Of how bad man/woman kind leans on a dogs love and character?

Especially in this day and age. If the cognition and evolution of all species has been and is taking place (ourselves included); I wonder if dogs are aware of the responsibility we place on their shoulders to love us at all costs, when we fail at loving ourselves and loving each-other


...At their conferences they must gather and ask their colleagues the pressing questions like, "How do we keep humanity believing in themselves?"
