What's IN your Mind is not what's ON your Mind
How a difference of one letter can make a world of difference!
Let's remember the possibility to remove them.
We assume that "outside" circumstances shape the meaning of our life. But it is the exact opposite which happens. "Vision" creates Reality. Take a simple event as an example: in the middle of this on-going pandemic, the sudden change of your post service which now delivers to your door also on Sundays. Each of us can create a different "story" about this fact: for some, this is an intrusion and the proof that we are under surveillance all the time. For others, it might just be "normal" or even a good news. How come?
Events by themselves are neutral. And stories are the way we make sense of life. In other words, "Reality" is our own creation. It is a Meaning-making story of "what is", filtered by our own beliefs, interpretations, paradigms. But we need to face a fact: the stories we create "write" our lives. They are our mental maps. They shape the way we see ourselves, what we believe is "true" and "possible". More importantly, they shape the way we see our Future, thus the decisions and actions we take today.
This is pure freedom of choice.
This is the core of Shapership, the Art of Shaping the Future.
As a practice, enjoy each opportunity to safely transform what and how you think, learn about YOUR glasses in the Presence of others, as well as deliberately change the stories that shape your life, so you can change the way you shape the world.
