Just as there are many shades of colors in the rainbow, there are many perspectives, which all seem valid to their respective viewers. Every one of us has a unique point of view, one that’s shaped by our perceptions of the past and projected through our imagination into the present.
Just as size and color are a matter of perspective (and subject to relativity), so are opinions. Opinions (and judgments) arise from a subjective point of view, which can be influenced by misperceptions or inaccurate beliefs stored deep in the subconscious mind.
Our personal interpretations of right and wrong are influenced by the beliefs we absorbed from our family, community, culture, society, and the many screens in our lives. While some interpretations are useful and accurate, some are harmful and inaccurate. Discerning the difference can change the course of one’s life.
The video above presents the following to ponder: What if there was no right or wrong, no good or evil, what if there was just compassion or ignorance?
Regardless of our different perspectives and opinions, can we be kind to each other? Kindness brings peace and tolerance, which leads to cooperation regardless of differences in opinions or beliefs. Empathy can bridge the gap between ignorance and an inability to relate.
Being kind to each other asks us to temporarily suspend our judgments—so we can really hear and witness each other—and develop more compassion. What we discover from quieting our minds and opening our hearts can transform our perceptions (and assumptions).
Did you know you can discover and transform negative subconscious perceptions through self-awareness art exercises like doodling and scribbling? Exercises like these are being used to teach children and adults how to suspend self-limiting beliefs and inaccurate perceptions, show kindness towards self and others, and explore new creative ways to grow and thrive.
With this in mind, we invite you to explore some of the ICWIB! art activities and videos for FREE, because they are a fun and simple way to restore balance.
Also, in a recent interview, Dr. Bruce Lipton said, “…Freedom is the ability to create without the limitation of generational programming. The I Create What I Believe! (ICWIB!) Program is a gateway and a pathway into a new and better future because it allows children to fully express themselves and to not be limited by the beliefs that have been passed down from generation to generation. This program also frees up children’s minds and allows their creative nature to create a better world for all of us, which is what we need right now!…”
