Come to the calm of a well functioning brain.
I just read an article about illusions in Vox. https://www.vox.com/science-and-health/20978285/optical-illusion-science-humility-reality-polarization. Neuroscience is studying how we perceive the world and our bias. Our reality can be viewed on many different levels. But is this reality the same for all involved. We have all been raised in different environments and have different preferences. We can all see things in a different way. I believe that the trick is to check in with the other person to see if what they are seeing, feeling and understanding can parallel with our understanding, seeing and feeling.
I just spent the morning with a dear friend. She came to help me clean out some hazardous waste. We had to drive to another part of town, about an hour away. We are people that perceive the world in very different ways. She is very organized, everything is stripped down and she cooks on a certain day. I have a haphazard way of approaching life. My house can always use some more organization. I cook when the mood strikes me. My clothes are varied and sometimes frilly. Yet, I find great comfort being with her. Her generosity is beautiful, she is intelligent and gifted. I sincerely appreciate her willingness to help me. We research how we perceive the world and enjoy the differences.
