Two writers help me reorient my attention and focus this week, and I’m always thankful for that.
In days of turbulent extremes and insistent ire that demand an all-or-nothing kind of rightness and wrongness, blogger Barbara Scott Keene reminds that life is complex and can be viewed from various perspectives. In fact, it’s worth making the effort to do so, because most often, things aren’t as they seem – as our thoughts and beliefs would make them seem.

And to discover just how much mind chatter and ego can crowd our moments (and make it awfully difficult to perceive things as they are in reality), Joe Martino at Collective Evolution invites us to “sit and observe everything around you … just observe it. Don’t classify, categorize or judge … Even go beyond the name of something you are looking at.”

Enjoy a wonderful week of meaningful discovery.
