John Seeker’s meditation reminded me of the poem by John Saxe, “The Six blind men of Hindostan”, where he concludes,

“And so these men of Hindostan,

Disputed loud and long,

Each with his own opinion

Exceeding stiff and strong,

Though each was partly in the right,

And each was partly wrong.”

We tend to think or view the world from our own perspectives.
