who doesn’t like the top view? Top position at your job place, top view from your home balcony or any other top angles in your life, career or around. I am sure each of you has experienced at least a few top angles while you tried any roller coaster ride, water rides or any other fun rides in amusement parks some time in your life. No doubt its thrilling and I love it too.
Many of them including younger ones, elders and at times if health permits older generation can easily understand, feel and enjoy the thrill in these top views or angles they experience for few minutes through these various rides, games or any other fun-filled mediums. But have we thought of the top view of life and its beauty? The impact it creates on us and our lives when we start thinking and seeing everything from the top view? What kind of thrill or fun it’s going to be? What we may experience when we try to think stuff from top viewpoint when required in our daily life or during any other critical situation?
Ability to think beyond, Decision-making skills, adaptability, and maturity to act in each situation in our life is most important. Few key skills once implemented can change our perception totally towards life and accordingly consequences follow. Let me put an example that popped up in my mind while I was returning back from my gym the other day.
It was Monday and as part of my routine, I headed to the gym. Finished 45 mins of work out and met my gym friends on a regular chat. One of my friends is carrying and she was slowly working out on thread mill at her own comfort. After a while, I decided to take the stairs instead of the lift for a change. I even remembered taking stairs was a regular habit in my childhood and now people prefer lift even for the first floor. I need to finish 8 floors in order to come to my flat and I thought this can add to my regular gym. I started slowly climbing each staircase and reached floor 1. There is a park just opposite my building where I am able to view the lush greenery through the transparent glasses of the building at each floor while climbing. When I reached floor 1 I stopped by a minute and realized the view fo the park at ground floor is different from floor 1. I clicked a picture with the mobile in my hand for a recap later. After a few minutes, I reached floor 3 and realized the view is even more different from floor 1 and ground. In fact, the view is much better and clear. Strangely this is the same park I see each day from my balcony but now, my mind started seeing the it in different ways. I continued climbing stairs and reached floor 6. The view of the park also included the view of beautiful buildings and architecture it has around. That was even more wonderful. At each stop 1//3/6 I clicked pictures.
Finally, I reached floor 8. The TOP VIEW is just spectacular and awesome. Everything is clear, near to my mind and I could sense the differences between the views on each floor I had. My mind immediately felt soothing and relaxed for no reason. This thought popped up immediately while I was standing there enjoying the top angle view of the city, park, and things around me. Initially, my view was so narrow and limited. As and when I am climbing stairs and reaching the top view, the clouds are clear with greenery underneath and beautiful city in the middle with a top view. In the same way, if a person is able to slowly enhance one’s own thinking abilities and perceive things accordingly the view he gets at the end is enormous. He/she will be able to understand from various angles according to the situation and not just from his/her own perspective. The mind has the superpower to think, analyze and articulate things. It’s just that we need to tune it accordingly and make it learn how to balance varieties of emotions and situations around us. It is so innocent that whatever we give, it immediately tends to show us back. Anger, sadness, joy all are so essential in our lives, we tend to ignore few, imbalance few and leave a few on its own. Rather if we try to take charge of each of them and learn to balance, life changes from the next minute. What is life? It’s our thinking, perceiving things and our action towards each person or situation. My understanding followed many other consequences I personally had in the past and meanwhile I reached my flat door slowly.
I understood, anger love, sadness, and all other emotions have a definite meaning and should be used wisely in the right place, with the right people and at right time. Like the way we drink and finish our favorite drinks to the last drop, life has its own hidden beauty and grace. Matured thinking, wisdom, and fine knowledge is most important to handle each situation and conquer the difficulties. It’s like we change the camera lenses according to the height, depth, and angle of the image to be clicked perfectly, I guess a person needs to think wise, adapt and accommodate according to the challenge, situation or person accordingly for better peaceful life experience.
Difficult situations and people can be better handled when we start seeing them from a little far rather than sticking around and making more mess. Thanks to my better half in life who started mentoring me since we met.
Hope you would start seeing things differently and give a try to think beyond when required and make your own life more beautiful and lively. This gives some sense of internal satisfaction and happiness to us and to the people around. Positivity can spread fast too.
As always, thanks for stopping by and reading my mind!! 🙂
