As You Thinketh – Is Your Experience Truly Your Experience? April 3, 2013

Posted by Shahir in As You Thinketh, Life, Love and Relationship.


grassIs your experience truly your experience?

Or, are they a morphed experience of those influencing you from outside?

As you walked to a Starbucks for the first time, you walked with everything you heard and read about Howard Schultz’ and his book “Pour Your Heart Into It,” and the great stories of your friends who spoke volumes about the friendliness of the Barrista and the warmth of its ambience.

Are you not already looking out for all that and more, morphing every interaction to make it friendly – your own approach changing to become friendlier – and seeing greatness and classic in the wall-paintings and the leather sofas though brown is not your favourite colour?

Is your experience truly your experience?

Is there a possibility that you are experiencing the virtual reality through the frame of someone else’s reality whose reality itself was not of their own? Is there a possibility, that your experience is not your experience?

Could that mean then that suggestions could frame your mind to think and feel the way it is suggested?

Can we not then suggest to our mind positively, not necessary that it is true but a harmless white-lie to pre-suppose that it is positive, if that means our approach towards it – whatever that ‘it’ may be – becomes positive too, just as how you reacted to the brown coloured wall-painting at Starbucks?

Most of the time when you love a song, it’s not that you love it, really; there is a possibility that someone told you that it’s a lovely song.

You can tell yourself that it’s a lovely thing, so that you begin to love it – whatever that ‘it’ may be.

Most of the time when you begin to hate a person, it’s not because you hate that person, but you were told by someone some attributes of that person that she hated, therefore you morphing that person to hate-able-attributes in spite of how well she’s behaving with you.

Could that be a possibility too?

It’s all about possibilities. When we begin to think what other possibilities are there in the given situation, perhaps that’s when we become richer in our experiencing of life, for, not everything is same as how it is appearing and there is a possibility that it’s different.
