I’ve always believed that we assume that others have the same ideologies as ours, even if we consciously believe that we are all different. We expect others to express anger just like the way we do; the same goes to happiness, fear, anxiety, and of course, love. We subconsciously reflect what is inside of us on others.
But how can we change that? What if we can control our thoughts?
Numerous psychological studies showed that wording is the only way to trick our brain because as frightening this sounds, our brains cannot differentiate between fantasies and realities.
How we see God is a direct reflection of how we see ourselves. If God brings to mind mostly fear and blame, it means there is too much fear and blames welled inside us. If we see God as full of love and compassion, so are we. – Shams of Tabriz’s rule #1 of love.
