Quote: “What we see depends mainly on what we’re looking for.”
It all depends on our perspective. How we look at things in life and not how they are in themselves.
For example if you look at free donuts after an event and can only see the long waiting lines, then that’s you will see and experience. Your perspective will only allow you to see the obstacles, the reasons why you shouldn’t get the donuts. Whereas if you choose to focus on the reward, which is the free donut, you will only see the donut. The reward. You will find all the reasons to wait in line and go after the thing you’re looking at.
When someone insults you, don’t take offense, don’t take it personally. Don’t take it the way it appears at first. Listen to the words. They are telling you something, how they see the world, and they are telling you the exact negative qualities that they possess. That doesn’t mean that the things they say are true. It’s just the way someone chooses to look at it, or to look at you.
“The Law Of Mirrors” states that one can only see what’s in them, regardless if it is what is actually present in reality or not.
Release the need to defend or try to explain to others that you’re not being whatever life’s circumstance has thrown at you. Evaluate instead all of the conditions, and realise that what is present to you can always be seen in a different light or different perspective. Look at the positive potential and work towards a better outcome.
You shouldn’t focus on why you can’t do something, which is what most people do. Instead, you should focus on why perhaps you can, and be one of the exceptions.
