The Buddha observed that we never see reality; he said, “life is a creation of the mind.” We respond and react to stimuli based on a multitude of factors which have nothing to do with what we see. Shakespeare put it this way when he said “there is nothing good or bad, but thinking makes it so.” And Flip Wilson’s character, Geraldine, brought this idea to life with a laugh when he said “what you see is what you get.”
A big part of being healthy is understanding that what we see in our lives has a lot to do with how we see it.
Perspective influences everything.
