Understanding Our Reflections

“We live in a house of mirrors and think we are looking out the windows.”~ Fritz Perls

Who are you looking at? Who is looking back at you? Who are you looking for?

The Greek Philosopher Socrates often referred to the pursuit of knowing thyself as the most important part of living. He also declared in many of his writings, that an un-examined life is not a life worth living.

On some level or another, all of us are seeking ourselves whether we realize it or not.

We all have beliefs, ideas, thoughts and attitudes which govern our thinking, our knowing and our living. Changing our thinking, our long held beliefs can dramatically change our daily lives.

Now there is nothing wrong with ice cream, is there? But at 11 p.m. (well past bedtime) on a cold rainy night, it is potentially disastrous.

She couldn’t stop giving me logical reasons for why ice cream was so necessary for her at that hour. Finally after much ado she did fall asleep. What she needed was to go to sleep, but what she wanted was ice cream! Continue reading “3 Soulful Ways To Overcoming Unnecessary Wants”
