Through the Looking Glass

"Through the Looking Glass" is a book written by Lewis Carroll. It is the sequel to "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland". In the story, Alice ponders what the world is like on the other side of a mirror's reflection. Climbing up on the fireplace mantel, she pokes at the wall-hung mirror behind the fireplace and discovers, to her surprise, that she is able to step through it to an alternate world. Many things that she sees in the alternate world are totally out of her imagination.

Most of us are basically living in our own perceived world. As we are in our own perceived world, we tend to limit in our imagination. Of course, I'm not saying that living in one’s own perceived world is wrong as long as one is happy with his or her own life. However what if one day our own perceived world is not able to provide our basic needs, for example you are not earning enough to sustain your living expenses? What should one do to prevent that type of situation?

In order not to be trapped in our own perceived world like a frog in the well, what we should do is to open up our mind to find an "alternate world" for ourselves. Only when we are in the "alternate world”, more possibilities or opportunities will come to us.

I am glad to say that I am slowly stepping out of my own perceived world and seeing more opportunities in the "alternate world". For me, life has just started to get more interesting as I found myself doing new things and I am slowly achieving some positive results.
