Perspective – The Beginner’s Mind
In 1969 we were given an epic and amazing sense of perspective by the pilots onboard Apollo 11. This photo is called, Earthrise over the Moon. It was captured on 07/20/1969.
It seems like a good time to be mindful of perspective.
Take a moment or more, to gaze upon this beautiful image. Consider what comes to mind for you; where you are in your life, in your community, on this planet, in this universe.
Then rise and go about your business with this fresh awareness. There is ancient wisdom in the Beginner’s Mind.
