We see too often not what’s there, but what we are conditioned to see. Our brains override new possibility to take shortcuts that previously made sense. Passages like this; it deson’t mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod aepapr, the olny iprmoatnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer are in the rghit pcale. The rset can be a toatl mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit pobelrm – showcase this.
And it’s happening at all times. The jumping to a conclusion. The neural hijacking of the potential curiosity for a moment replaced with the shorter faster and familiar. My quest for you is, become ultra aware of how much you do this. A wonderful thing I once heard was that we for example think rocks are stationary non sentient things. But we haven’t had the science and data to really push this. For example, they might move once every 400 years, but we’re just not recording it. We have already made our conclusion. This kind of thinking really lights me up. It allows our brains to move beyond all our fore drawn ideas and ponder, wonder, contemplate.
So try doing this with yourself. What conclusions have you drawn about yourself, your life, the people in it? Your job, your family, your soul’s role? What if it was in fact all just your brain conditioning ideas based on old outdated information (like it so often is). How might it all look with a fresh, creative approach.
