We all know that no two people are the same. So, is it a big surprise that no two people see the same thing in the same way? Actually, when it comes to experiencing and remembering anything, we are all different.
My view of life depends on the filter that is my brain – and the spin it puts on everything. I like to call it my story. We all have a story, and that story dictates how we interpret anything and everything. All those things that make me also make my story.
The point is this: while my story results in everything I think, feel, and do – it is not real.
Gravity is a reality: it works all the time if you like it or not. People’s belief about why we do not fall off the planet, but onto it, have been changing since we climbed out of the primordial ooze. (Or, since God banished Adam and Eve – if that is your story about where humans come from.) No matter the current, common, or personal belief, we still DO NOT fall off the planet.
If only life were as easy as not falling off the planet.
So, looking at your life, where have you confused your story for reality?
