Yesterday I was listening to some quotes from A Course in Miracles and this one stood out to me: Perception is a mirror. How simple, yet how profound!
What we see in the world reflects our belief system. I’m sure you know people who believe the worst in others, always imagining slights and bad intentions. Other people expect the best from those around them and–no surprise–usually get it.
I have had the experience of witnessing a particular event or living through a situation and then later comparing notes with others who were there. It astounded me that they had such different recollections (perceptions) of “the way things were.”
Did you seem to have the same negative experiences over and over again? Keep meeting/marrying/dating the same type of person over and over again? What are you experiencing and perceiving in the world around you? And what does that say about what and who you are??
