06 Jul VAT: Perspective from death
Wisdom is having and amalgamating multiple perspectives, not solely the perspective from our finite selves, the “I” perspective. Additional perspectives can be had when we truly connect with others and view the world as they see it. However, doing so is not easy. Alternatively, we can view our current circumstances from the prospective of the end of our days, the death perspective. The death perspective allows us insights into the many possible consequences (and how we would feel if they came to be) from the choices we make today; thus, limiting our regrets at the end of our days.
