i was just reading this blog and its the second reminder from yesterday to today that our perspective means everything.
for me that blog is terrifying, it scares me to death. pun intended. it scares me because i dont know if that is real or not, and if it is it doesn't sound like a place i would want to be for eternity, but if its true i'd rather be there than the alternative. to the writer it provokes awe and hope.
yesterday i talked with a friend, again, about prop 8 and being gay in general, and society, etc etc... he saw prop 8 as someone asking him what marriage meant in his mind, in his life.. i saw it as someone asking if i thought other people should be allowed to have what i have, whether we agree about who its with or not.... and it was crazy to see how looking at prop 8 from just two different perspectives was all it took to change millions of peoples lives, to produce rage and hate, to produce hope and love...
it seems like a tiny change in perspective, but a tiny change in perspective can change the whole world.
the way we look at love, at religion, at government, at other people, those are the perspectives that dictate what society we create. i dont want everyone to see the world the way i see it, but i do want us to be able to allow each other to see the world however we choose and to implement those things into our lives.
i know, from shit eating to deep shit.
my blog is crazy.
