In the pursuit of a deeper self-knowledge I encountered this concern about how I decided (consciously or unconsciously) that my actions and my behavior are the most adequate ones. From all the possible ways we could behave, why we chose this?
It is interesting how the same thought can trigger two different reactions and that’s because of the core beliefs each of us have. For example, the thought I think he called me a bad word can trigger sadness for one person and anger for another one. So the first one would orient his head towards the ground and ignore the teller, while the second person would have an adrenaline rush and maybe even say a few words to that person.
We act based on our core beliefs which decide what kind of thoughts do we have. This chain inside our head comes up with the best outcome in that particular moment regardless if it’s really the most appropriate one. Actually, that’s why we now regret some actions we did in the past and we’re wondering what the f*ck we were thinking about. It’s because at that point we unconsciously decided that it was the best thing we could do based on the knowledge we had at that point. Today we’re wiser and we see something else when we think about those moments. That’s a sign that we’re evolving.
Based on this, even if now I think these words I chose to write this post are the best I could come up with at this point, but I’m sure that one month from now I would read this and I would think that it’s sh*tty writing.
Anyway, what are your insights about this?
