How I see the world and situations is all about what is going on with me that day. I am very clear that my perception creates my reality. As Wayne Dyer says, “The State of your life is nothing more than a reflection of your state of mind.” I have found this statement to be very true, especially after years of self inventory and introspection. I have realized how I perceive the world is dependent on my past experiences, how I am feeling that day and what I am focused on. Not so much about what is happening to me but more about what is happening inside of me. The world is my reflection so that I am able to see myself, like a mirror. Wayne Dyer is my favorite teacher when it comes to this topic. Here are a few of his writings that have inspired me throughout the years, “When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change”; “When you judge another, you do not define them, you define yourself”; “When you squeeze an orange, orange juice comes out – because that’s what’s inside. When you are squeezed, what comes out is what is inside”. All of these quotes are true relating to my own experience. It helps me to keep the focus on myself, to not blame others for how I feel, and to give me the opportunity to change myself, rather than try to change the world.
