We’ve all had the idea: “I’ll believe it when I see it.” Amazing how we come to later realize that “it,” whatever that might be, was right in front of us all along! Sometimes adjusting our vision and perspective enables us to see more clearly and be in touch with what is and not with what isn’t.
Of greater importance are our Beliefs. What we know gets so hard-wired to the point that we are left with no other options.
A critical life-lesson to consider is to recognize that knowledge, for each of us, lies outside of the sphere of what we currently possess. Plainly put, we limit ourselves by what we now know and can only expand by seeking that which we don’t.
This isn’t an attempt to discount or invalidate useful information. If something works, let it. What is important is to question our Beliefs about ourselves and what we’re capable of. Also, it might be a good idea to question our interpretations versus facts about the people, places and things that surround us.
If everything in life was judged by only our opinion, growth would have little to no chance for success. We might as well return to the Stone Age.
If we don’t Believe in a particular Faith, Philosophy or Attitude, no problem. Yet, if that same Belief or dis-Belief limits another’s opportunity to be fully self-expressed, what gives anyone the right to do so?
How arrogant would that be! Yet, check how we go through our day and let’s admit to ourselves when we’re playing that game and knock it off.
What’s the simple solution?
Acceptance, Tolerance and as much Unconditional Love as we can muster. If other people don’t get it, “it,” again whatever that might be, will come if we Trust ourselves to do the right thing by others. Believe it and you will see it!
