The Law of Perspective

The art of drawing solid objects on a two-dimensional surface so as to give the right impression of their height, width, depth, and position in relation to each other when viewed from a particular point.

The increase of moral comprehension, understanding and reasoning.

The law of perspective operates in the notion that there is a right way to view things, and this perspective is based on the ability to reason, understand and comprehend. Each individual can cope with life differently depending on their degree of proper perspective. It all depends on your viewpoint. There is a right way to view things and a way that will lead to negative emotions.

When you put things in the proper perspective, you will experience peace, appreciation and gratitude. Failure to put things in the proper perspective leads to mental suffering.

The law of perspective is based on an increase of spiritual understanding and reasoning. A broader perspective dispenses appreciation, whereas a narrow or limited perspective leads to frustration and anger.  The act of reasoning is the medium for which perspective flows. If you are sad about a recent diagnosis of diabetes for example, just reason the broader implication of your condition, it could be worse, you could have an untreatable cancer. Therefore, you should be thankful you just have diabetes.

Perspective operates through the gift of reasoning, in that, no matter how destructive the outside world may become, we can choose to view things in a different light, and nothing can affect our peace without our permission. This is the gift we receive when we operate in the right perspective. Reason precedes happiness, so we must resolve to view things differently. If you view obstacles as problems, you will suffer emotional distress. If you view obstacles as opportunities to learn, you will experience emotional gratitude. Whichever the case, we must find the right perspective!
