“We often think that there is just one way
to look at things – the way we always have.
In fact, there are an infinite number of ways
to look at most everything.
An open mind allows for a multitude of perspectives
from which to choose in any given moment.
That suppleness of mind allows for true choice,
and opens us to a whole new realm of possibility.”
Jeffrey R. Anderson
“There is wonder in everything,
the only thing you need to change to see it
is your perspective.”
“Remember, whatever you focus upon, increases. . . .
When you focus on the things you need,
you’ll find those needs increasing.
If you concentrate your thoughts on what you don’t have,
you will soon be concentrating on other things
that you had forgotten you don’t have-
-and feel worse! If you set your mind on loss,
you are more likely to lose.
But a grateful perspective brings happiness
and abundance into a person’s life.”
“When you have once seen the glow of happiness
on the face of a beloved person,
you know that a man can have no vocation
but to awaken that light
on the faces surrounding him.
In the depth of winter, I finally learned
that within me there lay an invincible summer.”

“It is well known that stone can think,
because the whole of electronics is based on that fact,
but in some universes men spend ages
looking for other intelligences in the sky
without once looking under their feet.
That is because they’ve got the time-span all wrong.
From stone’s point of view the universe is hardly created
and mountain ranges are bouncing up and down
like organ-stops while continents zip backward and forward
in general high spirits, crashing into each other
from the sheer joy of momentum and getting their rocks off.
It is going to be quite some time before stone notices
its disfiguring skin disease and starts to scratch,
which is just as well.”
