A little while ago I was reading something that went into how our story can allow us to lead a fulfilling life or it can do the opposite. This was something that I had heard about a number of years before, but after hearing it again, it reminded me of how powerful our story is and it made me think about it more deeply.
If you are not familiar with the term ‘our story’, one way for you to understand what this means would be to for you to think about how you see yourself and how you see life. You could even go one step further and write down whatever comes to mind.
Set In Stone
When you do this, you could find that not everything that comes to mind is positive or helpful. However, while what comes up about who you are and what the world is like will be anything but the truth, it will be seen as the truth by your mind.
And, as this is seen as the truth by your mind, it will be difficult for you to see yourself or the world in any other way. So, while the story that you have is not the truth, it won’t really matter.
A Deeper Look
When it comes to how you see yourself and the world, you could have a number of limiting ideas. For example, you could find that some, if not all, of the following beliefs come up:
The power of Awareness
Regardless of what you learn during this process, the main thing is that you will have started to shine the light on how you see yourself and the world. Up until this point, you wouldn’t have been able to do anything about the perception that you had.
Now that you have this insight, you can start to question what you believe and to create a new story; one that will actually serve you. What this illustrates is how much control you have and that you are not a powerless victim or merely an observer of life.
