I asked myself earlier today what am I not seeing?
And after a little while, an answer: Wanting to be right.
Whenever there is a belief in a story, there is a sense of I and Other, and we have to tell ourselves we are right to maintain both.
We have to deny the truths of the reversals, at least at some level. Either by not seeing or acknowledging it at all. Or by not allowing it to deepen into a lived, felt, loved truth in our lives.
There is a belief in a story, which creates a sense of an I with and Other, which in turn brings fear, which in turn encourages us to maintain and strengthen the belief.
And this is what I am not seeing in myself. I see it to some extent, in some areas, but not nearly all the way through.
