Ralf Weiser's Blog – Shake Up Your Snow Globe! ©

Stop doing, shake your globe, ponder, dream, start reaching your full potential – live on purpose and do it with a smile!

Your mental blind spot is a lot bigger than you think


Left:  How you see me  Right:  My mirror image, which only I see

The reality and truth you see starts out with an illusion:  That we can all see the same picture of it.  Just take your mirror image.  The one on the left is how YOU see ME.  The one on the left is how I see MYSELF.  Pay attention to the facial features.  How I see myself is not at all what you see when you look at me.  Do you also know people that stress out about their outward appearance?  They are coifing up someone that only they can see that particular way.

I am not trying to split hairs with this.  My point is merely that between the reality you see and the one I see there is a difference just the way how we get to experience it through our own eyes.  With a mirror image that may even be relatively simple, but we are on two different pages at all times from the get go.  Think of so many other topics where we will most likely never be able to come to an agreement about what the ultimate truth is.  Between two viewpoints there is what I call the delta point; it lies somewhere between the two.  It can almost never be the same just the same as our life journeys are unique to us.

Agree to disagree and if you cannot do that think about the mirror view example and let it be.  Share the example and perhaps this can be another great day where ignorance is overcome.
