Each of us has a unique vantage point on the ultimate truth. No one person can possibly contain the truth of all that is, it’s too big, even for us. If there was only one person who contained the ultimate truth of all that is, there would be no need for other people. We all have something to give.
With over seven billion people on the planet, it’s hard to believe that one individual holds any real significance. “How could the way I see things provide any value when there’s seven billion other people to offer their perspectives?” Because only you can see things the way you see things. Only you can give what others cannot. That’s why you’re here.
You are here to share your unique perspective. You are here to place your piece of the cosmic puzzle. You’re the only one who can do it because you’re the only one who holds and understands your piece. That doesn’t mean that your perspective is the only one we need, but we do need your piece.
We need each other. If we want to understand everything we can about the Universe and our existence, we need to be open to every person’s perspective. This is where it gets challenging.
Many of us, myself included, sometimes believe that the way we see things is “the way.” We believe that we understand everything we need to know just by seeing things from our own perspective. If we live our lives this way, we will have missed out on an abundance of valuable knowledge that might have reshaped the way we lived our lives.
This is why we often go to other people with our problems, because they can offer a unique perspective on what we’re experiencing and seeing things through their perspective can help us to solve them.
Other people have enormous value. They are necessary, just as necessary as you are. They can offer wisdom and insights that we could never produce for ourselves. That doesn’t mean that we need to change our perspective or believe what others believe, but we do need to be open to any and all ideas and information if we mean to learn as much as we can about ourselves and the Universe.
We all need to share what we know. We need to share our views on the world. We can’t let our unique perspective stay trapped inside of us for fear of not having anything to offer. We do have something to offer. If we had nothing to offer, we would not be here. It’s as simple as that.
If you’re here, there’s something you’re here to do. Be true to that. Have the courage to live up to your potential.
Place your piece of the cosmic puzzle. You’re the only one who can.
