None of us live in the real world – we live in our own individual ‘map’ of the world.
Sensory information (especially what we see and hear) is corrupted and constructed before we get conscious access to it.
Our ‘maps’ cannot be right or wrong, they can only be effective or ineffective; helpful or unhelpful.
Our problems arise from the difference between your conscious ‘map’ of the world and how the world really is.
Your conscious thought processes are not the answer to your problems – they are the cause.
Other people’s opinions are even more violently unhelpful.
Any personal intervention that attempts to make changes through conscious ‘understanding’ is a bad joke.
Just love and laugh.
Are you with me?
