This week’s reading involves The Topsie-Turvets, who represent change of viewpoint, fresh looks, and new ways of seeing.
In a reading the Turvets suggest that things need to be looked at from another angle. We need to back off from our emotional entanglement and look anew. Much of the apparent confusion about the issue is caused by a faulty point of view. Get the opinions of honest others and then re-look at your own. Defensiveness and denial may be causing much difficulty. Try imagining that you are looking at the situation from the point of view of each of the others involved. This is not an exercise in deciding how the other “ought” to see things, but in discovering how they really do. Words like “ he ought to see that ….” are not useful at this time. This is the time to put yourself in the other person’s shoes.
