Different Perspectives

B&Wboat

 

“We don’t see things as they are, we see things as we are”.

We all look at situations, events, and what other people say and do, according to our own set of past experiences.    These past experiences also consist of our differences in  culture, faith, values, and everything else that help us form our beliefs about ourselves, about others, and about the world in general.  The meaning we give events, and  the way we make sense of our world, is based upon our set of core beliefs.

  1. I absolutely agree. We see others as we are, from inside us. Not for who they are. And we are seen by others via who they are. So essentially we are all seeing, what and who we are, outside.

  2. Reblogged this on livingintherabbithole and commented:
    Another reblog because I was thinking today about the judgments we have of people and the yard sticks by which we get judged. No one ever thinks we are seeing sparks of ourselves, that what we are receiving is interpretation. So, when we effort to move past our perceptions and reeeeeeeaally listen as an exercise in understanding difference of belief, expression, values…we cause a small miracle really.
