Probably the most courageous thing we can do is to entertain another belief. Another perspective. We feel an existential “loss of balance”, fearing that by examining another belief, we have to believe it first, or we will be lost in free fall. That’s probably why most of us can’t entertain another perspective; we hold on tight, and continue to try to see it from this nice safe place. You won’t see anything new, without the courage to leave, even if only temporarily, our comfortable, familiar and safe place. We don’t have to believe something to examine it…but we do have to let go of our firm grasp on our current perspective. Try it. You won’t fall.
We think we perceive our surroundings. We think that are minds are writing the narrative of what is real.
In fact, we are not perceiving reality, but our perception of it; our own
personal interpretation…not a statement of fact…
Observing our observation is the key out of our own personal hell,
and blindness to it…condemns us to its repetition.
The only thing crazier than believing that your worldview is the only one that’s true is trying to convince a person otherwise by using logic.
Always be willing to question the validity of your convictions by testing their credibility, probability…and of course, bias contamination.
The senses and the mind are lovely liars…
Everything needs its opposite to define itself.
Hot defines cold, high defines low.
All singularity exists in a binary state.
Polarity gives way to motion;
Nothing can escape this paradox, even paradox itself…
This truth…is also false.
