Cherie Roe Dirksen : Shifting Our Global Perspective

Divine You: Redefining Love in the New Earth

Shifting Our Global Perspective

By Cherie Roe Dirksen

Reality versus Wonderland

Nothing is black or white; we are a grey area that takes so much intellectualising it drives us to the brink of incomprehension.

Art © Cherie Roe DirksenJust look at yourself in human biology — it is a miracle! This miracle, our form, which we so seldom marvel at. We are not just ‘black and white’ biology, and what I mean by that is labelling everything and not seeing past the label. We are miracles in-carnation, and we need to see past the scientific label we put on everything and look past that into the so called ‘grey’ areas of our very existence.

Now we are thinking out of the box.

The ‘grey’ area is just thinking out of the box. It is human nature to compartmentalise everything; it is our way of making sense of the world, but it is not always necessary to think like this.

In fact, we should try to think less like this and more broadly, because when we do this as a civilisation we make room for evolution. We begin to empathise and be compassionate because we are not only seeing things our way, or the ‘right’ way.

It’s All About Perspective

We try to get every angle on a person, subject or situation. There are many perspectives to a given reality, so therefore a given reality cannot be set as different perspectives mean a variation of what is perceived as reality. What I mean is, if we all have a different take on a certain thing, that thing cannot be labelled as our different views will give it different attributes.

We are everything and we are nothing, but hold on; we are now beginning to tumble down the rabbit hole!

When Alice fell down the rabbit hole, she left her perceived reality behind, and stumbled upon a parallel world with many characters showing her their version of reality in a seemingly bizarre world. When we fall down this rabbit hole metaphor we begin to see our reality as quite bizarre too — we are living in a world of infinite possibility.

How can we use this information and apply it to seeing divinity en-masse?

Let’s wrap this up by saying ‘God the Parent’ is likened to the ‘Human Parent’ in as much as we are more willing to think out of the box with our own children. In other words, we are far less judgmental or quick to judge in the case of our own ‘kind’.

This is simply because we feel we know them. So we are not judging them; we are judging the action, and with the knowledge we all make mistakes, and our mistakes do not always represent the being behind the mistake.

This is why we always seek to blame another or the situation for our loved ones actions because we think we know them so well.

Empathy and Compassion Leads
to a New Vision

But if everyone thinks this of their loved ones or children, you can now see how the Divine sees all of us. When we take this approach and apply it to all our ‘human family’ we will learn what it is to be compassionate, and to see things from a new perspective or just from their point of view — when we do this we will move closer to our natural state of divinity.

Because the Divine encapsulates this, but you already know that at a cellular level.

Divine You by Cherie Roe DirksenWe are all one big extended family.
