“Looking through our thoughts we can see the world before us.” #bgdtcoaching.
Our thoughts are like filters over our eyes. And those we are looking through right now not only colour our vision of the moment, but impact on how we see the world around us.
We could have placed before our eyes only negative ideas. Looking through them gives us little hope for a brighter tomorrow, let alone a pleasant life this present instance.
Looking through neutral perceptions of the actual reality, we might see things in a varied manner. Some things shine bright whilst other aspects of the day are less than great for us. All is as it is we feel without the necessity to make a further assessment right now.
A third option exists and we may wish to take it up. Looking through positive thoughts gives us the impression of a joyful scene in which opportunities possibly abound. And that it is our thoughts creating the vision suggests we are capable of bringing into being some, if not all, of the items.
Being curious, which filter are you currently looking through? Maybe your view of the present is influenced by factors not referred to here. In any case, if you’d like to share your input, please leave a comment below. For now, thanks for reading this Looking through post.
