I am smiling.
Pictures don’t lie. A picture is worth a thousand words. Those are statements I grew up with before the technological imprint changed those sayings from long-held truths to absurdities. Except for some experts, we really cannot tell if a photo is authentic or fabrication.
What does hold true is our interpretation of a photo, an image, an experience. If we see it, we believe it is true ~ for us, from our perspective. Then we can consider the phrase, If you believe it you see it. So, the thought goes from seeing is believing to believing is seeing.
Nothing except perception. Perception is filtered by bias. Is this Eagle smiling?
Is someone happy, sad, mad or being a jerk because that is what we see? Is someone we love or work with problematic because that is what we see? Is our life not working because of how we see?
Maybe everything is working and we cannot see the larger picture. Maybe everything would work better if we could see differently.
Is the Eagle smiling?
May We All Walk in Beauty.
