What Do You See?
"Our way of seeing things is also our way of not seeing things."
— James McPartland
The lens through which we see the world is essentially created by our language. Consider words, terms, phrases, and their relation to each other. We see in our life, world, and reality, what our lens allows us to see. It is like looking through a screen, although we are not aware it is there.
One example is a doctor. When we need to visit her, she will see in us our patient history, probable cause of illness, and likely courses of treatment. The lens she looks through sees us from the language and principles of medicine.
What is clear to you? What might you be missing? Is there a more empowering way for you to see things?
