Leadership & Communication
Dec 27, 2021
We all understand the world differently. You put two people in the same room and they would come out having different experiences.
So to live a meaningful life, it is paramount that you understand beyond what you can see. And it is particularly important to understand other person's world when communicating to them, if you want the communication to be effective.
Here's a way to understand this using 3 different schools of thought
𝗡𝗟𝗣: We all create our own maps of the world. Every second our brain gets 2 million bits of information, but our conscious mind can only process 134 bits. And to do so we delete, distort, and generalize. So the Map is not the territory and what you see is a 'deleted, distorted and generalized' version of reality and not 'the reality'.
𝟯 𝗣𝗿𝗶𝗻𝗰𝗶𝗽𝗹𝗲𝘀 𝗼𝗳 𝗣𝘀𝘆𝗰𝗵𝗼𝗹𝗼𝗴𝘆: Our thoughts are projected on our consciousness. And based on our quality of thoughts and level of consciousness we see the world differently. Imagine you are in a glass elevator of consciousness. The higher you go, the more you see.
𝗕𝗵𝗮𝗴𝗮𝘃𝗮𝗱 𝗚𝗶𝘁𝗮: We all live in 'Maaya'. Maaya means that we don't see things the way they are. We see them the way we are. And to see past Maya one has to know that Mind is a tool to help you but not guide you. You must use your soul as a torch to be guided and to see beyond what is.
