Navigating Reality: It’s all about Perspective

This is a really interesting short video from Daniel Schmachtenburger. He argues that "perspectives of reality" are always partial truths, and he concludes at the end, that "... the ability to take many perspectives, and to see the partial truth in them, and then be able to seam them together into something that isn't a perspective, but is a trans-perspective capacity to hold many perspectives, in a way that can inform our choice-making, is fundamental to navigating reality..."

So in plain language - you may have a view or opinion (perspective) about something, but remember, it is only a partial-truth. And so, try to see or understand another persons view or opinion (perspective) as another partial-truth of reality.
