Seeing the world as it really is! Or not?
The World as we see it now
When I saw the following video it really made me think. Are the things that we commonly hold to be truth really just that, the truth? What if things are actually different? Would it shake your world? Are we all just creatures of habit and look for the easiest solutions that doesn’t require any critical thinking? When you believe that your own view is the only valid one, do you cut off effective communication with others who may not share your cultural assumptions and perspective? One of the hardest things to do is to change one’s own perspective of the world. We are taught and acculturated by our environments, it is so deeply we engrained in us that we are unwilling to let go of our current paradigms.
