Perspectives are the lenses through which each of us look at everything except ourselves. Change of perspectives happen very often,sometimes in an instant.They are ephemeral.The way of thinking after a change in perspective leads to a paradigm shift. Consider comparing our paradigms with those of children:
Even the simplest of the things hold immense value to children.This kind of a perception is the most gratifying one. As we grow older,we seem to drift away from this beautiful way of life to a more barren and calculative perception. This is the reason for discontentment in an adult's life;which is all the more ubiquitous nowadays.
A simple book which intuitively talks about Perspectives,Perceptions and Paradigm shifts is The Little Prince,by Antoine de Saint-Exupery a French aviator.It is the most politely done mock at all of us,who do not value the simple things in life.
It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.
