Superimposed on the image was this quote by Marcel Proust: “The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.”
It was a message destined to change my life. I realized, in soaking in those words, that I’d spent my whole life seeking “me” out in the world of possessions and relationships and events. And I’d never found her.
Proust’s profound message is now my personal life motto.
We spend so much time trying to change the world to fit our desires. So much wasted energy. All it takes to change the world is to shift our perspective. We see the world we look to see. This simple truth has meant the world to me.
