I was in the forest hiking the other day in one of my favorite spots. Usually I hike around a big loop and my hike is completed. But on this particular day, I decided to turn around and go back the way I came…the hike would be longer that way…and I did not want to leave this wonderful place just as yet.
I found that on the way back, my point of view had changed, and I saw everything that was so familiar to me in a different way. In fact, I almost got myself lost, not noticing the turn I would want to take back.
It made me think ~ How we see the world, depends on where we are standing. And where we are standing is powerfully affected by our beliefs. Our beliefs are powerful, so powerful that we cannot live, or see or experience anything outside our own individual beliefs.
SO CAUTION HERE ~ Be careful not to limit your beliefs, and don’t allow them to dominate your life. Because in doing so, you are not allowing yourself to broaden your beliefs and therefore to see the world and its life from different perspectives.
SO COYOTE GIVES US A CHANCE TO BROADEN OUR BELIEFS and see other life and our relationship to it in a whole new light. Are we open and alive to discover this amazing wild being who lives among us?
The next time you take a hike, turn around and come back the way you came…..look to see how your perspective is different…
