Being open to seeing with fresh eyes

‘The real voyage of discovery consists not in finding new landscapes but in seeing with new eyes.’

+ Marcel Proust

Our eyes are amazing. And what we notice isn’t what we see.

Indeed, if our brains processed all that falls on our retina, we would be completely overwhelmed. We simply wouldn’t be able to function.

Instead, the filter is inside of us.

It’s our worldview. The story we tell ourselves about the way things are, which our ‘sight’ confirms.

Yet we can shift our worldview.

One way is to imagine being in someone else’s shoes.
