As We Are

“We don’t see things as they are. We see them as we are.” – Anaïs Nin

Your state of mind and heart are the filters through which you view the world. If you are fearful, afraid of losing something, you will see the world around you in a certain way. If you are contented and at peace, you will see the same circumstances in a very different light. Your basic state of being – be it radiant or reactive – shapes your view of reality.

The mystery is not out there; the mystery is in your eye.

    My impression I that we are both reactive and radiant. That we see things as we are , and then there is a choice to expand into a consciousness to see things as they are. ❤️

  2. Are we being radiant or reactive is central to living a quality life. This does depend on the orientation of our heart and mind. Oriented to what is true brings the comfort of contentment and peace. Oriented to that which springs from a void consequently brings a sensing of lack and insecurity. We do have a choice. It is good to consider how the seemingly mystery of life be a mystery no more!
