How often do you think of yourself as a universe? I started to do it once I’ve had a glimpse on human psychology. There are so many things inside us we’re not aware of, that when things start to move around, our whole world seems to turn upside down even though the outer universe seems to be the same.
There are many things in there we cannot reach (or we don’t know how to do it) and the fact that there are so many theories about how to approach a certain mental issue (some of them contradict themselves) proves we have no precise idea about how we work. We gave theories and working strategies, but no one can say with total precision how we work.
We all are different, so we are parallel universes that interact from time to time. Some parts are the same whilst others are differently connected. That’s the main reason why there isn’t an universal psychotherapy that can fix everyone. We’re unique so we need unique approaches.
The catch is the our inner universe is interconnected with the outer one, but it’s more important. The main reason I’m saying this is that the same outer situation can make someone happy and in the same time it can make someone else sad or mad. It’s all about how we see the things we interact with and we then decide how important is it for us and how it’s going to influence us. Even though the influence comes in, what’s inside decides how that influence will impact our inner universe.
Oh, and by the way, there are so many examples of people going through shit from an outer point of view, but their inner universe helped them successfully push themselves through that. An awesome outer universe doesn’t guarantee an wonderful life, but an awesome inner universe can do that.
On which of these two do you concentrate more?
