I’m happy to share that elephant journal just published another article, “How We See is What We See.” The article is currently a staff pick on their home page.
elephant journal is an online magazine that features articles about mindfulness, “non new-agey spirituality”, green living, and more.
To share the article, it’s most helpful to share the social media posts about it, rather than sharing directly from the article. The links below take you directly to the posts:
Also, commenting on the article helps with engagement.
I wrote more of a comment on the article itself, but I just have to say that I love this as a one-liner:
“Programming your mind is like telling the fish to climb a tree.”
The more I understand the way I (and others) function, the more I realize that I keep asking myself and others to do this!
Very great article, I love the way it is written for such a broad and diverse audience.
I really liked how you explained discernment. Its a subtle, yet powerful and thought provoking article. Thank you.
i like how the chess master let himself see things from every angle; sometimes i have fun with that…
I loved the article. I also liked the line of programing you mind is like telling a fish to climb a tree.
Amazing article, I keep wanting to read it. I also really love the fish analogy, it speaks to my own feelings of being stupid. To think of potential outside my own limitations is so inspiring. If we can understand this as adults, our children will be very lucky.
I always enjoy your articles.
