Vision Correction

Pin It
Sometimes we see things wrong.

We, as humans beings, have an inherent need for visual proof that things exist.

Did you know that there was already technology in place which could reach into space and discover countless heavenly objects without the use of a telescope? The only reason telescopes were necessary was to fulfill the need that humans have to actually see what we were already told was there.

How would it be if we used our internal radar more than our tendency to visually perceive others? I'm sure it would be difficult since we are so dependent upon our vision to initially discern things.

But don't you think it would make a difference if we looked at each other with more insight instead of depending so much on eyesight?

I'm going to say yes.

What do you say?

I think that Anaïs Nin might have been on to something when she said, "We see others not as they are, but as we are."

At times, I think we tend to 'focus' on the bad or negative in others because it it a sordid reminder of that which we do not like about ourselves.

T5th- Great quote... and yes, the last bit is sad but true. Wouldn't it be great if we could just like ourselves for who we are? If everyone had that kind of confidence I think we'd all be a lot happier and perhaps even less judgmental.
