To really see what’s around us, we need to see past ourselves first to understand the view. Anais Nin understood that our vision can be skewed by a simple thing: us. Our view of the world is colored by who we are. It seems that the easiest way to clear your view is to understand yourself first: your thoughts, ideals, dreams, and everything else that makes you you. Once you get that image in sight, it will be your guide to how you interpret your views of the world around you.
If you’re not seeing everything in their true colors, then maybe you need to check and see if there is something blocking you and try to change that. Those who are the most open to the universe are the ones who are most able to adapt themselves when the universe throws them a curve ball. And since that happens pretty regularly, then you can assume that you must also be open to adaptation so that you will be able to see the possibilities, no matter how improbable, that lay waiting to be discovered. The universe is a pretty amazing place. We should be living up to its examples, don’t you think?
