Your Mind Fills In Gaps

"Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth." - Marcus Aurelius

Spoiler alert, Marcus never said that. But let's focus on the quote itself.

Do you really see what you see? Is it reality or just your perception of reality?

The visible world we see isn't reality.

In–fact: you can only understand the world you see as seen through your eyes. You know what I am writing because you have been taught to recognize the shapes of these letters and words.

But what you see right now may not be reality, but for your sanity, you're taking it as reality.

Example - Read the following statement out loud:

Wht ae you reaing?

If you read, "What are you reading?" kudos, you’re normal. But hold up, why did you read it the way you did? Why did you envision the sentence was what you assumed it was?

Our brains have been trained to fill in gaps and make basic assumptions, so things make sense. It happens all the time.

When we view our world, we are inundated with fragmented pictures that are not complete. Moreover, these images are seen from millions of subjective perspectives.

What you see is not certain. What you hear is just someone else's opinion told from their perspective.

I am talking subjective, not objective reality. Wink.

Hard Easy


What if I told you there are two ways to live: Easy Hard or Hard Easy? Would you rather live an easy life now—eat whatever you want, buy whatever your heart desires, avoid the tough conversations that can come with true human connection—and deal with the consequences later?. Or would your life be better in the future—meaning, would you rather be healthier, have financial security,. have better relationships, and have a sense of peace and fulfillment in your life—if you tackled the hard decisions now?
