Imagine that ur now standing with 2 of your best friends, which u know 4 many years. let’s call them Linda and John. Now, ur telling both of them about that great steak that u had last night in that amazing restaurant.
John, who is a fat carnivorous, smiles while starting to drool on his floral button shirt. He is probably thinking to himself something like: “Oh my god, u know how to live! Jesus, I wish I had one or two or three of these steaks right now.. I wonder if u also had a barrel of beer next to it because that’s what I would want to have next to my outrages number of steaks. I ADMIRE YOU FOR THAT”
Linda, well, she is more an animal rights kind of person. And she’s really in to it, u c? Actually, she is the leader of the biggest protest organization against animals killing IN THE WORLD. So her mind is mumbling to herself something like: “Oh u jurk. They should really kill people like u. Not just kill you, but fatten you before that just like they do to a goose. And than sell your meat to some restaurent so that fat f***s like drooling John would eat you, while he drinks that barrel of beer and burps like a pig. I HATE YOU”
Alright now, so what I’m trying to say is, that when 2 people are looking at a 3rd one, they never really see the same thing. What they do see is the sum of their thoughts, beliefs, passions, habbits and so on, while this man only represents their attitude towards those things. And this is only an example for a much wider idea – No two people live in the same world. Each and every one of us lives in a totally personal world to which no one can enter because it all happens in our heads.
Conclusion – make sure that your thoughts are in the right place.
