What contributes to one person’s view of life as dark, lonely or isolated and another person’s view of life as bright, boundless and full of undiscovered opportunities?
What draws the MIND in one direction or the other? Is it more natural to view life as existence with a simple goal of self preservation or to view life as an endless pool of sensory stimulation redefined through infinite possibilities and experiences.
The child’s mind develops without preconceived awareness. The child experiences life and then learns from these experiences.
The adult’s mind often lacks flexibility and is self limited by preconceived awareness. It lacks (figuratively) peripheral vision and auditory attentiveness. It has a tendency to confine life to certain boundaries to minimize anxiety and other painful emotions.
To see life and all it has to offer, we NEED to retain part of the child’s brain while growing and developing the adult’s brain. If we sacrifice the child’s brain, we lose the driving force to LEARN and EXPERIENCE; if we sacrifice the adult brain we lose STABILITY and the drive for MOTIVATION.
Our perception of these four terms and the priority we give each one determines (to a large extent) our ability to SEE LIFE.
If your “VISION” of life is falling short of expectations, see which brain (child or adult) is out of BALANCE. Are you under or over utilizing your LEARNING andEXPERIENCESor sacrificing STABILITY for misguided MOTIVATION?
As you allow these natural brains to express themselves and interact with one another, an emotional weight releases, providing greater opportunity to SEE LIFE and enjoy it from BOTH the child’s and adult’s perspective.
