Perspective is worth 80 IQ points.Alan Kay
We often talk to our friends for different perspectives. But did you know you can already have different perspectives within yourself?
Your conscious mind is a perspective.
Your subconscious mind, with its emotions, is yet another perspective (that often fights with your conscious mind).
The you that exists outside of these minds and decides to shape them to better survive is yet another perspective.
Hell, you can create multiple personalities like David Bowie and have them bounce ideas off one another.
Meditation is just adopting another Perspective
Meditation is not about emptying your mind. It’s about being external to yourself, watching your monkey mind jump between thoughts and feelings, and either choose to let them go or inquire deeper.
