Since my childhood I was keen on understanding human nature. Having lived in various countries, being acquainted in person with several thousands of people and having studied cross-cultural communication, I came to a conclusion that people do not share one reality, each one lives in his/her personal reality with pretty different laws! I noticed that everyone has a certain “line of action” throughout his/her life, a certain pattern of behaviour that make the life of a person exactly to what it is.
Let me give you some examples. We all probably know some people who love fighting: They will fight with a salesman over the quality of a product, with a waiter over the lack of service, with the spouse over just anything… Then you probably know some very lucky people who do not have to move much and yet keep getting attractive bonus from Ms.Fortuna. We can meditate on the reason of such “lifelines” – either it is genes, social background or karma – no matter what, the fact is, we all seem to be living in very particular “realities” that often do not cross! And the more so, it seems that this realities never change: the one who loves suffering will find a reason to suffer in any situation.
I am curious to see your response on the small poll I’ve created on that topic.
What fascinates me is the impact on these “lines of action”: They seem to work in a certain manner and create rules for each of us. A person who works in a “suffering” mode will not work in the “peace” mode, and these two will most probably never understand each other. How often do we say “this person is from another planet”? Sounds a bit like the famous String Theory, right?
I wonder what your observations tell: Is it possible “to switch the realities”, do you know some examples when people suddenly changed their modus operandi?
My comments and analysis after several days of voting:
- the voting shows wonderful results however I suspect it to be not representative for the majority of people…may be evene not for the majority of my readership!
- I guess that the points that I suggested are not clearly reflecting the main idea, not well composed…
- basically, I can say this attempt has failed and I will make another try later… 🙂
thanks a lot, my dear ones!
