Creation’s Viewpoint

Daniel Clarke Flynn
On Perception (March 2023)


Dear Friends: I have come to believe that we learn by silently listening to and observing other human beings without judgment. The more points of view we listen to, the broader we see. Our vision becomes much more than just what we see and hear. We begin to experience “that of God in everyone,” as George Fox said. We begin to see more from Creation’s perspective than from our limited perspectives as unique, temporary, and necessary manifestations of Creation.

As spiritual pathfinder Willigis Jäger has said, the view can be breathtaking.
