The Shift

One of the common side-effects from learning The Three Principles is that we experience a shift in perspective. Sometimes it is a subtle shift and sometimes it's more dramatic, but the result is the same - we are suddenly able to see things in a new way. It's as if we are looking with fresh eyes and seeing something (or someone) for the very first time.

We often tend to underestimate how valuable it is to have a new perspective on life, and we fail to appreciate how powerfully transformative it can be.

It's worth remembering that in the moment we view life differently, we will experience a different feeling, without anything outside of us having changed. And a different feeling leads us naturally to different ways of responding to life, opening up new possibilities that were literally unavailable to us just a moment earlier.

The beauty of this approach lies in its simplicity. When you begin to see for yourself what is behind all of your feelings, reactions, behaviours and interactions, it relieves you of the burden of having to alter or improve any of these things. Insight itself is the change-agent, and it comes easily and often when you know where to look.
