Salt and Sugar

Some of the strongest chemical bonds known exist in common table salt and table sugar. These bonds hold together tightly and remain almost indestructible by any known force attempting to break them apart. They resemble our habits of salty and sweet approaches to life. Salt and sugar represent extremes of our personalities which often drive our taste for life and our experiences every day. These two compounds, strong and stable, easily dissolve with the introduction of the simplest and most basic of natural occurrences – water. Perhaps also the stubbornness of salt and sugar in our personalities will dissolve with the introduction of the purest of all emotion – love.

New-thought philosophy purposefully
exploring life's spiritual inter-relationships,

While truisms such as "both sides of the story" and "walk a mile in my shoes" offer us hope in understanding the vantage point of opinion, true perspective culminates from lightning fast judgment and experience, sometimes without words. Perspective offers us sanity-moments in a world where we often don’t understand how we fit.

Most importantly, our perspective arises only from within ourselves. We can never know the perspective of another person, no matter how eloquently they verbalize it. Perspective originates in the innocence of a child to the world-weary observations of experience and life-lessons.
