When you find yourself totally confused as to how a situation transpired, this notion is very helpful.
We can only see things through our eyes, filtered through our experiences and education and energy patterns that are filled with emotions and all kinds of sensory imformation attached.
So, next time you can’t understand someone, understand that it’s not necessarily their fault. No one’s reaction is necessarily wrong. It is largely the gap in understanding between realities that creates all kinds of chaos.
Practice empathy. Try to put yourself in someone elses shoes. You may be surprised how much more clear things seem!
