A Higher Perspective
Eric Butterworth wrote, “An English couple was visiting New York City for the first time. They came with some apprehensions because they had been conditioned with a vision of a sordid and crime-ridden city. Their host thoughtfully took them first to the observation deck of one of the city’s highest buildings so they could get a lofty overview. It was a beautiful clear day, and they could ‘see forever.’ The visitors were delighted and surprised, giving them a very positive first reaction. Later, in a tour of the city, the man remarked that he could not forget that view from the top. They had a wonderful weeklong stay and left singing the praises of the ‘loveliest, friendliest, and finest place we have ever been.’ All because of the initial high-level perspective.
“It is a powerful insight to live by: Always get the view from the top. Before you react in negativity to people, conditions, or things, take a moment to lift up your eyes unto the hills. Contemplate all the changing, challenging experiences from the highest possible point of view. Regardless of the appearance of conflicts or limitations, see all things from the awareness of the allness of life and the ever-presence of substance. From the view from the top, you will see things creatively, leading to an attitude that is constructive and optimistic.” (From: Spiritual Economics)
Animals have been used, and still are in some countries, to carry heavy loads of precious metals and never know of its value. Some people move through life feeling the weight of circumstances while not being able to experience a more abundant life of happiness, health and prosperity. This is because they are somehow not able to see things from a higher perspective.
Jesus said to not judge by the appearance, and to be right in your judgment. He wisely taught that you will always be happier and healthier when you lift your vision so you may see rightly. This means to realize that that which appears has no intrinsic value of itself, but when you rise into the Christ consciousness, you are able to see beyond what appears, to the reality of infinite good.
True positive living is living from the highest perspective, seeing everything as God sees, perfect and complete. In other words, instead of believing that illness is real, know that you are made in the image and likeness of God: absolute perfection. Rather than accepting lack or limitation in any form, see the reality of omnipresent God-substance.
Living from a higher perspective means to practice the Presence of God within yourself and in all people; to love unconditionally; to see as God sees, only good. – Lovingly, Rev. John
I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. – John 13:34

A Little Humor…
A farmer invited a preacher out to his ranch for dinner, after the Sunday morning services. The clergyman accepted. After the meal, the farmer asked the minister to drive around the ranch with him. The minister took a good look at the place as, in his mind he evaluated the future possibilities. When the two men arrived back at the house, the farmer said: “Now shall we go in and you can pray for a good crop?” The minister, who was quite wise, looked the farmer squarely in the eye, and answered: “Brother this farm does not need prayer as much as it needs FERTILIZER!” – Adolph N. Meyer
