How is it that we lie to ourselves so often (and we know we do) even as we claim to be pursuing our authentic self and our personal truths?
Perhaps we can pose the question differently: How often does someone, who is just beginning a new adventure, know (can predict or control) the specifics of what that adventure’s actual experiences will be?
Never. Right? Not if it’s a real adventure and not some theme park make-believe.
So . . . maybe—just maybe—if you and I are not intentionally misrepresenting our honest understandings and feelings in a particular situation, we can be in error or inaccurate and still not be at fault. We simply didn’t know better . . . until the moment we did . . . we honestly hadn’t seen the truth of a particular experience for ourselves by ourselves.
We all need an assist, some help, into seeing life and ourselves more openly,
It’s actually a joy
when and as we do
