Good Morning World! I have a confession to make…
I have a secret addiction- Kaleidoscopes! No really, it’s true. When going through my children’s toy boxes, it seems I never can toss out a kaleidoscope. Have you noticed how beautiful everything is when viewed through this amazing toy? Look at a television, the Christmas tree, your child’s messy room, a dirty bathroom or cluttered kitchen sink. This list goes on to infinity because no matter the subject, the view is glorious and rich in color, design, etc.
At this stage in my life I am trying to focus more on being a better unconditional lover towards the All That Is! Just recently, I heard Esther Hicks (Abraham) say… “I love you, not because you are wonderful (fill in the blanks… beautiful, well-behaved, helpful, funny, a healer…) – I love you because I am a LOVER. (www.abraham-hicks.com)
I long to improve my skills at seeing the world through God’s eyes and now I know how because… drumroll… God is like a Kaleidoscope. Every person, place or thing is beautiful when viewed through the eyes of Infinite Intelligence. And how else could it look to the Author of Unconditional Love. And notice then, how 7 billion different people could look through 7 billion Kaleidoscopes and have so many different beautiful perspectives that they reach to infinity.
Consider my view alone. If I hold the Kaleidoscope and physically move the focus by the slightest degree, my view shifts while maintaining yet another incredibly artistic result. So do me a favor, when I’m being a complete @#!%!&* and you’re finding it really hard to love me, hurry- try my scope and check me out. Or, use it on yourself when the wrinkles on your face scream out at you or that extra 10 pounds feels like one hundred.
We’ve all heard the words “Seek and you will find,” and this works both in a positive and negative way. Well, the ideal attitude would be to play our way through our wonderful world where our collective missions are to Seek the best in everything because that is surely what will manifest for us. (trust me, I’ve tried the Seeking the negative aspects of others and it’s not a pretty sight…) And so, for the times when we struggle to seek (and talk about and point out and repeat wonderful stories about) the best in others- to see the world through God’s eyes- just cheat and grab your nearest Kaleidoscope and take a deep breath and just inhale that beautiful sight!
