What do you really see?

I cdnuolt blveiee that I cluod aulaclty uesdnatnrd what I was rdanieg. The phaonmneal pweor of the hmuan mnid, aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it dseno’t mtaetr in what oerdr the ltteres in a word are, the olny iproamtnt tihng is that the frsit and last ltteer be in the rghit pclae. The rset can be a taotl mses and you can still raed it whotuit a pboerlm. This is bcuseaethe huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the word as a wlohe. Azanmig huh? Yaeh and I awlyas tghuhot slpeling was ipmorantt!  No, I didn’t have my fingers on the wrong keys while I was typing.  But isn’t this fun!  Your brain and perception can really run amuck can’t it.  The point being that we really do have our own unique perception about what we want to see and how we want to figure out what we are experiencing.  The real challenge when watching or observing life is how attached to the outcome are you?  How invested are you in getting someone to “see it” what ever it is the way you see it?  What about you seeing someone say a blonde and the person really is a brunette?  You are so convinced that they are blonde because this is what your reference point is (blonde) and that you are right that you truly can’t see the brunette.  Does that mean you are wrong?  Hmmm!  Or just that is your perception and reference.  You are used to blondes so anyone you look at looks like they have some rendition of blonde in their hair.  Actually the twist is how invested are you in trying to get anyone else to see it just the way you see it.  How tightly do you hold on too getting someone else to validate or agree with your belief?  The ego can be very persistent and dominate to win.  To be right.  Being right doesn’t mean someone else not agreeing with you has to be wrong.  Just diferneft.  Do you want to win and be right or orare you comfortable not convincing someone that your pecretipon is just that?    Rita
