What You See Is What You Get - So Make Sure You Want What You See
Confirmation Bias - we all have it. We see what we're looking for. Can we make that work for us?

Don’t be fooled by something – or someone – with an impressive label, and don’t be a snob either – you miss out on great stuff.   Do we perceive harmless comments as insults?   When our spouse comes home late, do we have compassion for their hard day or do we feel slighted?   Do we see the food stain on our child’s face and miss their big toothy smile?  What do we see?  What do we miss?  What do we mis-perceive or distort in an effort to make reality conform to our biases? 

So, the question is, can we make confirmation bias work FOR us instead of AGAINST us?   That’s the challenge and the inner work of conscious living, and it can make your world suddenly so much more vibrant, alive, and filled with joy.
