Lies, lies, all lies!!!

August 5, 2009

Our minds are full of lies. And we believe them!

When we were very young, and just learning about the world, our imperfect parents instilled in us an imperfect world view which we still carry around with us. This world view, to a great extent, is composed of lies that we have come to believe as truth.

When we accept that our worldview may be composed of lies, we can set about changing those lies to be something that would serve us better.

Tonight I discovered that there is a little girl inside of me that is still working very hard to please her daddy, who is impossible to please. Daddy said that we should never lie, that we should always tell the truth. And yet, what is truth, really? So much of what we believe is “truth” turns out to be someone’s opinion that we agree to accept.

Let us recognize that our perspectives are malleable, and let us create new ways of looking at our worlds, at ourselves.

Some possible new ways to see things are:
People make the best choices that they can make in any given moment
All works to serve greater growth
There is no such thing as failure, only feedback
Every behavior is useful in some context
People respond to their maps of reality, not reality
If what you are doing isn’t working, do something else
If one person can do something, anyone can learn to do it

Do any of these bring up resistance in you? Take a look at that. It very well could signify a place that you are stuck. If that is the case, just suspend your very firm belief for a moment and entertain that some of these may be more useful. You may just find your life shifting for the better.
