Vantage Point

 

An assault to the self is most potent when viewed from the field below.

           An assault to the self is diffused in proportion to how high you go.

 

 From high, an assault is less personal when multiple aspects are known;

           All the mechanizations, not just the self’s alone.

 

Blinders at the bottom, a limited view from the ground;

           Perspective at the top, where insight and truth can be found.

 

Awareness lifts the soul to spiritual heights in the sky

           Where a better sense of direction is seen peacefully floating by.

           An attack to the self is diffused in proportion to how high you go.

 

From high, an attack is less personal when multiple aspects are known;

           All the workings and cogs on the wheel, not just the self’s alone.

 

Blinders at the bottom, a limited view from the ground;

           Perspective at the top, where insight and truth can be found.

 

Awareness lifts the soul to vantage points in the sky

           Where a better sense of hope is observed peacefully floating by.
