We create our version of reality in our own mind.
This reality is personal.
This reality is created using the lens of our personal experiences.
We build up our very own ‘map of the world’ and use it to project onto the world how we feel about it.
‘The map is not the territory’.
Your unique map of how you think life works is personal to you.
Sometimes it serves you, sometimes it doesn't.
Realise the following…
You can change your map in an instant
Your personal map of the world is a construct of your ego
In a very real way, your map of the world is a tale you tell yourself.
You tell yourself this tale in order to stay safe.
You are attempting to stay safe from imagined threats.
When it comes to real threats you are hard wired for survival.
Real threats happen in the moment.
Imagined threats happen in your imagination.
They are NEVER the same thing.
When you realise you are scaring yourself into a small life, your life can expand.
You don't need to live an ‘expanded’ life.
However, you will experience more joy, more satisfaction, more energy and more fulfillment than if you live a life contracted by fear.
And remember they (every other human being in the planet) live in their own personal reality.
They cannot ‘see it the way you do’.
Respect their reality.
It is not your job to change them, it is your job to ‘grow’ you.
