We go through life seeing the world in a certain way. Then, things begin to change. The world becomes a little less focused. Time passes and what we thought we saw clearly, now becomes jagged and distorted. We begin to complain about the nature of things; they're just not the same. The world is collapsing, crumbling, and almost apocalyptic. Oh the humanity, things are not the way they used to be. We try everything in our power to change the world, to make things better and return to the good old days.
Then, one day, we have our eyes checked. Ooops, we discover we need glasses. We put them on and once again see order, brightness, smooth roads and clear skies. We begin to see the world correctly. It was not falling apart after all. It was our perception that was changing.
So my friends, when all looks to be crumbling and in turmoil, it may just be that we are really seeing differently. The old paradigm isn't being destroyed, as such, we are just seeing a new one and the corrective lenses simply take a while to adjust.
