Mirror? Opinions of those we trust? Distrust? The scale? An article of clothing? Our five senses? It is indeed all of these, even if we don’t realize it. Now, this is not an indictment of how we see ourselves. It is a “bringing to attention.”
If we look to the horizon on a body of water, that is our perception. The setting sun sinking into the water. Yet we soon outgrow that, once a parent or teacher tells explains what’s really happening. Our eyes continue to testify to something different. Yet if we were to swim out to try & touch this setting sun, it would be elusive. Why? It is a perception not based in reality. It is a vibratory interpretation–a mix of light & color being bounced, reflected & refracted to & through our eyes.
Think about this phenomenon as you make your way through your day. How you see yourself, interpreted by the lens of what the world reflects & refracts back to you, may need a little alteration. It is not meant to provide you with excuse or exoneration. Nor is it meant for you to trust or distrust critiques or praise given to you. What is it meant for? That’s a good question. And the answer for me at least, is to THINK.
Some of this will be part of my podcast series on SELF EFFICACY.
All for now. Keep up and keep at it.
