the final reward of looking at life through the lens of more than one culture–plus–it’s volunteer week

CAROL-FLINDERS-IN-2006-from-marinij-comCarol Flinders quotes Huston Smith, who ‘has described tellingly the value of looking at life through the lens of more than one culture: “Until sight converges from more than one angle, the world looks as flat as a postcard. The rewards of having two eyes are practical, they keep us from bumping into chairs and enable us to judge the speed of approaching cars. But the final reward is the deepened view of the world itself.” ‘

  1. Love it Peter… looking through different lenses makes all the difference! I have turned off my tv and radio today… no news for me. I can’t take it anymore… too much death wishing going on… blessings my friend blessings

  2. yes, the news only offers a single view, whereas the richness of humanity lies in its diversity and acceptance of differing views.
