We all create our world around us by our thoughts and beliefs, and our perceptions of events and of ourselves. This is mainly what determines how we experience life. If we believe that life is gloomy, then we will perceive gloom in events and by that perception we have drawn gloom into our lives and gloom is what we then experience.
The way we view things is really only a reflection of our self beliefs, and not necessarily how it really is. Dr. Phil puts it this way, “There is no reality – only perception.”
The person who understands that our perception changes with our emotions knows that what we see is not a true, solid reality. What we see is distorted by the emotion that is running us at that moment. It makes sense that we try and gain control over our emotions if we are to have a chance at not being run by our lower primal instincts.
A hostile person lives in a hostile world. A loving person lives in a loving world. We only need to look at a situation from a different angle, or from another’s point of view, or see the bigger picture, and that can totally change our life and its myriad of events. We are not judged in life by what we are experiencing, but by our reactions to it. Let us start today to look at the positive side of living.
