“We spend our life monitoring our behavior as well as that of others,
and our statistical brain constantly draws inferences about what it observes,
literally “making up its mind” as it proceeds.
Learning who we are is a statistical deduction from observation.”
Much of who you think you are is based on the limited perception of people who were around you most as you developed.
Who you surround yourself with NOW can help update those statistics. Who do you surround yourself with- online and in person?
Are they regulated, healthy contributors to society? Are they compassionate to themselves and others? Do they propose solutions and new ideas? Or are they constantly focusing on problems, negativity, and repetitiveness in their reactions?
If so, just keep in mind that so many of the opinions of yourself that you think come from you have actually come from observing the people around you.. how they talk about and treat themselves and others.
You have a choice of updating your brain’s algorithms by updating the data you allow into your awareness.
"The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand,
not the kindly smile, nor the joy of companionship;
it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one
when you discover that someone else believes in you
and is willing to trust you with a friendship.”
Have a beautiful Monday everyone... with Love, from Me xoxo
*one of my favorite Transcendentalists. One of the core ideas of transcendentalism is that people are inherently good, but that institutions and society can corrupt that goodness. It views physical and spiritual phenomena as part of dynamic processes. They are big fans of nature... I think I would have enjoyed hanging out with some of the original crew.
