One of my favorite things to do is attempt to see the world through another person’s eyes. It gives me rich perspective, insights and empathy that I would never discover on my own.
Life and truth are much like the parable of the blind man and the elephant — a composite of various perspectives. You know the story. Five blind men come upon an elephant for the first time. One takes hold of the trunk and says it’s like a snake. Another the leg and says it’s like a tree. Another feels the elephant’s side and says it is a wall. A fourth feels the ear and proclaims it is like a fan. Finally the fifth takes hold of the tail and insists it is a rope.
None of them is wrong. None is lying. But the truth is somewhere in the combination of them all. There is beauty and perfection to be found in each person’s perception. The truth is a combination of them all.
Judy Hansen is one of the few people I’ve ever met who approaches the elephant with eyes wide open — seeing matter, energy, spirit, truth and most importantly the Source of it all — Jesus Christ — working in harmony.
Meeting her has changed my life. I already had a rich relationship with my Savior when I met her, but that relationship has deepened and become even more real and exquisite.
So when Judy told me she had written: “Trusting Spirit Now: Life Through the Eyes of an Energy Intuitive” — a book about how she sees the world and eternity, I couldn’t wait to read it. What a gift to be able to see the world through her eyes!
You may not agree with everything Judy has to say, but take the time to consider that what she says might be true. Measure it against revealed truth in the Word of God, not against your own perception and interpretations of it. You will gain a richness in your relationship with the Savior and all His creations that you never had before.
