“Its inhabitants are, as the man once said, “whores, pimps, gamblers and sons of bitches,” by which he meant everybody. Had the man looked through another peephole, he might have said, “saints and angels and martyrs and holy men,” and he would have meant the same thing.” John Steinbeck, Cannery Row This quote taken from Ragged Company by Richard Wagamese. ( A great book)
The perspective you have on your life provides you with pictures and feelings about who you think you are and what you are doing with your life.
This quote points out that if you just shifted to looking through another peephole you would have a totally different picture.
Does it change who you are?
The essence of you is always the same no matter what picture you have developed of yourself along the way.
You are only pure essence.
I call that love.
All the joy, abundance, happiness and transformation live within your essence.
It has never been any different.
This is who you are.
